SUPREME Saddies

It is with a severely heavy heart that we announce that one of our favorite coonies has crossed OTRB.
Many of you know Dante, and we know you probably already know. But for those who don't, he was one of the first Coons we followed and admired.
We can't even express how much this hurts us, and we apologize to Rumblemum for dropping it on her as we did, but our mom was at work when she found out and could barely work and inform anyone.
Our deepest love to Dante's family and fursibs... we know how much it hurts... especially from the coon perspective and heart problems. There is just something special about Coons... it's almost as if the bigger the cat, the bigger the personality, the bigger the love, the bigger the chunk they take when they leave.
Please stop by Dante's blogand give some love.

A brief update

So the cats are doing well, TOO well perhaps. Curzon has been waking us up a LOT lately. I think maybe some of it is bc I cut back his thyroid medicine from 1/2pill 2x a day to just once a day. He seemed to be severely mopey and just out of it on full dose so I cut him back. He's gained the weight he lost back and maybe some lol. Jadzia is still the stunning ladycat she always is... I do think she's enjoying her brother getting "tortured" lol... I'm not sure but I think Curzon is STARTING to finally realize the medicine is why he's feeling better as he's not being so much of a hidey cat but like I said he was just so out of it on the full dosing it's hard to say.
I'm so grateful for all the warmth that you guys have provided... It was a nervous wait to get the results back, even if it didn't take long lol. These 2 have been with me most of my adult life and I cant imagine life without them. I would love to take one or both out on a drive but it's just much too hot! It's currently in the mid 90s with the heat index a good 10 degrees hotter. I wouldn't be surprised if we got a lot closer to 100 than they're forecasting. I'm not hating the heat, I'm hating the OMFGG-HUMIDITY lol. I was all up for taking curzon out this am, but it was storming at 330am. Now it just feels even MUGGIER.
Hugs to all and hope everyone hasn't sweltered into a puddle of nothingness yet.

Preliminary Results..

So the initial results are back in from the vet. We're still waiting for one more thyroid test to come back, which will be tomorrow.
Jadzia is a healthy, though plump little kitty. She was such a good girl considering she got poked from both needles and the dreaded thermometer, manhandled, paws trimmed, and had to share a carrier with her brother both there and back. The only crying was while she was on the floor while I was reassembling the carrier after she was done so I could help with Curzon. The bump on her neck appears to be a benign tumor, nothing to worry about. It can be removed - for a price of course. But with her age, I just don't want to put her under if I don't have to.
And speaking of Curzon...
He was a naughty boy. They had to bring out the big gloves (like you see raptor caretakers wear) and a towel JUST TO TRIM HIS CLAWS. He was good on the trip there and back though, let out a whimper or two on the way there and that was it.
However...
He's got thyroid issues. Which explains his sudden weight loss earlier this month. We apparently caught it early, though he's still quite elevated. Once we know just how bad the situation is, we'll start him on medicine, likely Tuesday. I am so very glad it's not something worse, but considering he is 15 almost and "showing his age" a little more than his sister (vet's words, not mine) I am still concerned.
All in all it was a good trip, and I'm glad I shelled out as much $ as I did. It made things make sense. And hopefully it reminded the vet that Curzon means business, even at almost 15. I do think they'll both make it to 20, and I wouldn't put it past Jaz to make it to 25 just to beat every other cat either of us humans have ever had. She's a stubborn little lady... She's just a little bigger than her brother now! lol

Thank you everyone for your purrs that knew about their vet trip... and those that are like WHAT?!? Don't feel bad. I was going to try to get them in Friday before work but neither of my vets were going to be there but they had an appointment an hour and a half after I called so I jumped at it.
And those trying to figure out how I did it... I got my license last week! And I had the van, so that's how!
