    Fister has an appointment on March 1st and March 8th

    Fister is going to the vet for a check-up - along with Shanga, who I looked after again recently. They’ll be going in the same car, Fister in his box, and I suppose Shanga in hers. I hope there’ll be no hissing!

    Fister has slowed down and he is miawing for me to come and lay next to him, and often wakes me up a couple of times during night. He eats and drinks and pees and poops, so that's good, but he sometimes misses when he jumps up on thedesk. He has let me brush his teeth for a while now, but only the front ones - he doesn’t mind that too much. I’m a bit worried about his gums, though, but he doesn’t have bad breath. I really hope he won't have to have any teeth extracted. He’ll be 16 years old in May.

    You all may think I’m crazy, but the astrologer Karen spoke to on the radio show, said that Fister will be more sensitive to any kind of medication in this period and that will go on for another 6-7 months.
    I hope you'll send him some positive thoughts. Thank you!

    Here are a few recent pictures of Fister.

    Orange Fister - I hope the vet finds a simple way to perk you up a bit. I hope you don't need any toofies pulled - that can hurt! Hugs and cuddles to you.

    Poor sweet Fister. I'm sending lots of pawsitive thoughts and love to you both.

    Sorry I've been AOL - retirement has me running in circles.
    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!

    Fister my love, you've been a staple of Pet Talk as long as I've been here. I adore your freckles and hope all goes well on your visit with the white coats.
    Randi, I don't think you are crazy at all. You live with this beautiful boy every day and you know as a mom what's going on. Don't let him be over medicated if you feel it isn't right. We all get old. Missing the desk is okay if you are there to help/catch him.
    He looks health and happy. Well groomed and just enjoying his life with you. All is good. It's natural to worry but he looks fit as a fiddle to me.

    Thank you, all! The assistant had mixed up the time and thought we were coming next thursday, but they fit us in, so both Fister and Shanga had a check-up today. I’m glad to tell you that the vet thought Fister looked fine, and his numbers were within normal range. However, the Alat number was quite a bit higher than usual. I'll have to find out what that means. He hadn't lost weight, he weighs 7,6 kg. He also got his vaccination, since I’ll let him down in the yard this summer, if he wants to.

    So, we’re going again next thursday to have his teeth cleaned a have a closer look at his gums. Shanga may need her teeth done too. It was impossible to look closely without anethesia. The vet was a bit shocked at how wild she was, she was growling and trying to attack him with her paw. She has given me a few scratches before, while I looked after her. She just doesn’t like strangers to be close to her head.

    I have Fister‘s numbers from previous years and have added the one from 2012.

    Urea = Kidney
    Alat = Liver
    Glucose = Sugar

    2009
    Urea 11,6 (normal = 5,7-12,9)
    Alat 45 U/L ( normal = 12-130)
    Glucose 7,02 (normal = 3.94-8,83)
    + Vaccination

    2010
    Urea 10,7 (normal = 5,7-12,9)
    Alat 40 U/L ( normal = 12-130)
    Glucose 6,14 (normal = 3.94-8,83)
    Vægt: 6.9 kg

    2011
    Urea 10,2 (normal = 5,7-12,9)
    Alat 42 ( normal = 12-130)
    Glucose 7,36 (normal = 3.94-8,83)

    2012
    Urea 11.0 (normal = 5,7-12,9)
    Alat 78 ( normal = 12-130)
    Glucose 5,74 (normal = 3.94-8,83)
    + vaccination
