    Innova in a bowl isn't appealing but she will eat and eat and eat it as a treat. (Admittedly, it probably has something to do with handfeeding... a habit I'm trying not to get her hooked on.) Thank you, Tracey, for sending us a sample!
    I'm so glad to hear that she's doing better and feeling better. You're very welcome. I'm just glad that she's eating some of the Innova Evo even if it is just as a treat. I hope that she'll continue to do well.

    It's not bad news but...

    I'm not jumping up and down for joy either. And maybe I should be, I just really thought I'd feel a big sense of relief and I don't. I feel exactly like before: worried, scared, and on edge. (But, considering her condition, I wonder if I'll ever feel anything else.)

    Anyway, the condensed version:
    When the problems first started and we went to the vet, K'Cee's BUN was so high the machine wouldn't register the number. The machine stops at 180 so the number could've been 181 or 200+, there's just no way of knowing. The creatinine was 14.8.

    It was at this point that she was hospitalized and given fluids (among other things). The levels returned to normal ranges.

    Today, a month and eleven days later, the BUN is 67 and the CRE is 4.4. Still high but at least 3x lower than what it was originally. We're hoping to get these numbers down even more through diet.

    I'm not sure how to take this information. On one hand, she's a HELLUVA lot better than she was. On the other, it's still high (and apparently has gone up since her hospitalization). She acts GREAT although getting her to eat is still quite a feat. We were suppose to do a urinalysis today but someone forgot to close the door to the utility room when she went to get her jeans out of the dryer and someone else slipped in and used the box... That said, the vet thinks the infection(s) have cleared up, judging by her WBC/RBC count.

    The vet's comfortable maintaining at this point. We don't have to go back for 90 days (Dec 15th).

    I'm very thankful that the Hissy Monster has returned to her normal self and that the numbers are so much better but if you wouldn't mind, we'd sure like a few prayers to get that BUN/CRE to the normal range.

    Thanks for reading this and thank you, too, for the prayers.

    Zippy - please do jump up and down!! This is exciting news!!!! I know the numbers aren't normal yet, but in time they will. Celebrate the baby steps, OK and while you are at it please allow me to give KissyFit a few nosie rubs and head kisses.......

    Oh yes, and my prayers continue for this little Princess. Come on Kissy, please eat a bit more.....

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    We can do the Purrayer stuff ... sorta BEEN doin it!
    We'll keep it up!

    As for wandering BUN/CRE numbers ... Kissie-Kat's in good company ...
    MY numbers have been "bad" for years - Kidney Doc doesn't even *stress*
    when they jump a few numbers ... "We're OK as long as they settle back down."

    As for the "unauthorized box use" ... ~~~ I can relate!

    I started to NOT carry Boots-da-Kat's 'home' box in the bus when we commuted
    back & forth to work. Thank Heaven for RUBBER floor mats once or twice.
    It got *dicey* on Test Daze when I needed an offering for Doc Mike.

    We'd all (2 Dawgs, 1 Kat) run into the Shop and I'd park da Kat by the door;
    DASH over to his Shop Box and try to quickly prepare the 'Sample Collection System' -
    a clean sheet of Saran-Wrap spread over a lil depression in the sand.

    The Plan always fell apart if he really had to GO - he'd jump in, assume the position,
    and drain everything on the sand before I finished tearing off a Saran-Wrap piece..

    Ah yes - the Joys of a Kidney Kat!

    Stay WELL, K'Cee!!

    Prayers for K'Cee.. that the BUN and CRE numbers come down to more normal levels.

    I hope that her levels will continue to improve and that she'll also start eating better for you. Lots more prayers and positive thoughts are being sent her way.
