    Yodi is a Yodee

    That's right. Yodi is a spayed female..... Not that it matters much but when I picked her up the first thing I was told was the gender. Gee, I wonder if he had a sex change in the shelter..... This was the tag on her cage.

    Anyway, she's back home again and there is some really good news. Her T4 is right back to normal thanks to the meds so the vet told me to cut the dosage in half and have her checked in a month which I will do. Even her Urea and Creatinine have come down - not normal, but down from her last check in April. Her hemoglobin is quite low indicating possible anemia so a CBC is recommended and I might ask for that to be done along with a urinalysis when she goes in for her next check up. She seems weak in the back end and pooped in her porto-prison on the way home but I'm sure a full days sleep will do her some good. She was shaved all around her ears and head and I was given some Surolan liquid for her ears and skin, to be used twice daily until the bottle is empty. They did take some samples of her ear guck and the results will be in within the next week or two.

    If her next check up is a good one, I've made the decision to once again fail Fostering 101. That way I can take her to my vet as the drive home was really traumatic for her.

    For now, she's fast asleep in the corner of the living room and I'm sure she is having pleasant kitty dreams.
    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!

    Sounds like someone at her former shelter needs a sex education class. So glad she is back home and resting now and her T4 is normal. Hopefully, she will start feeling better soon and start coming out of her shell. I don't blame her for being cranky going to the vet. I'm a mess when I have to go to the dr too.

    She might not really realize yet that she has freedom to roam when she wants because she spent so long in that cage at the shelter. I know I'd be afraid to unpack if I'd moved around as much as she has.
    Prayers for you both.

    My sincerest apologies Yodi darling ... of course you're a girl and not a wonder, a little miffed at all of us referring to you as "he"! So happy to know that you are on the mend sweetie - please let your Mom take care of you - she is awesome and loves you to bits.

    Awww, poor Yodee! Maybe someone just thought "Eh, too fluffy, not gonna check, I'll just put 'male'" and no one else bothered! Hopefully they will figure out what the ear gunk was, poor kitty, and you can clear that up together.

    I had to look up Surolan and this is what I found: "a combination of medications with antibacterial (polymyxin B sufate), anti-inflammatory (prednisolone acetate) and antifungal (miconazole nitrate) activity" So, Miss Yodee, I hope this will help your ears and skin! The prednisolone should definitely help your itching. I am sending you a HUGE HUG from me and another "senior kittyzen" who is looking at me as I'm typing.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Slick, does Yodi meow to you? One of the many things I've learned from PT is that meesers can be chatty kitties.

    I just read the entire thread... don't know why I didn't see it before. Good for you for taking in Yodee. What a lucky cat she is to have you to give her a home, care, and love in her old age. She's very pretty!

    You are so very lucky! I have always had kitty boys, but someday I want to adopt a sweet kitty girl! My coworker, who lives in my apartment complex, has two adorable kitty girls and they are adorable. Have fun with Yodee and give that pretty girl some loves from me!
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    Slick,

    I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner. When I first looked at the title of your thread, I thought to myself, "Is she CRAZY??? Having a baby at her age????"

    Then I saw Yodi's beautiful picture. A big THANK YOU!!!! for taking in an oldie but goodie! I have a special place in my heart for oldies. I miss my Bartie and Elan. If I lose another baby, I'll definitely take in another one.

    Yodie is up there in age. Most cats at 17, like Bartie (18) and Elan(19) sleep 23 hours a day. I'm so glad that she got the vet care she needs. She is stunning, even for an oldie.

    Can't wait to hear more about her!

    Hope you didn't take offense at my thought. Serves me right for not reading it closer.

    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02
    Mollie Rose, you were there for me through good times and in bad, from the beginning.Your passing will leave a hole in my heart.We will be together "One Fine Day". 1994-2009
    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"

    LOL that's the exact reaction I was going for. The shock factor....
    We are making progress. She slept with me last night and apparently lovse to get underneath the covers and crawl down by my feet. Had to sleep softly as I didn't want to roll over her. Today she has been really needy. I think she knows she is home for good. Gosh I love this little purr baby!!! There's nothing like a senior!

    She's figuring it out! Good girl, Yodee! My senior and I are sending you a whole bunch of lovies, kisses and hugs!

    Meowmie, how are her ears and head doing with the new medication? I hope she is less itchy.

    God bless you both, Slick and Yodee!!!
