He won't eat wet food. He's doing better with his usual food, as long as it is in a bowl with sides that he can scoop up the bits. Blood work came back great, now we just wait for the results of the G-I tests.

And here I thought Sheldon was the only cat who didn't like wet food.

MsPurrl -- glad Fergus is feeling better! I always have a soft spot for big orange cats. Hope the last of his tests come back ok.

Thanks, indra. I remember your soft spot for big orange cats. Got a call from the Purdue Small Animal Clinic today with the last round of test results for Fergus, which showed elevated indicators for pancreatitis, which was to be expected, given his earlier symptoms. Right now we're to look for lack of appetite, weight loss, and "strange behavior." Made an appointment with his regular vet for more blood work in four weeks, to compare to see whether it's acute or chronic. So far, so good. In fact, right now he's standing up with his paws on my leg, wanted some food. Here is a picture of him with his belly shaved for the ultrasound.

Aww...what a cute naked tummy! Love the paws all tucked in tight too. He must have had a hard day!

Hope he continues to do well and that it was just a one time thing.

I'm down to only one orange cat now (plus three others -- they're just not orange), but luckily he has that huge orange cat personality in spades!

I'm glad you still have a ginger boy! Fergus sleeps like that quite often. Right now, though, he is curled up on the love seat asleep. Callie (the calico) is on the couch, and Bronwyn (the almost-one-year-old kitten who used to live under the shed in the back yard is asleep in "the kit room." Finnula, however (the meezer-looking sister to Bronwyn), just crawled up on the love seat by Fergus and skootched over until her head touched his. He started licking her head, and they are now snuggled up together asleep.

My female kitty has early signs of LPGS. She will eventually have to lose all of her teeth. Poor girl.

^ Awesome

There's a cat semi-roaming near where I live, which is so skinny and thin that I finally went out and bought a $1 little tin of cat food to leave nearby.

Today I walked by the house it was near and there was a sign saying "Please don't feed the cat- it's on special food + meds"

well ok, my bad. ...But if your cat is deathly skin and bones, shouldn't it be living inside in a controlled environment?

That makes me really sad, mobvok--that cat should be indoors and given better care than it's obviously getting.

Oskar the Blind Kitten and His First Toys - YouTube

I cried!!!Seriously!!! My grandmother snicked into the room and saw me crying?She asked me what was wrong,I explained to her the story of this little cute kitty and she said"Clasic Philippa,you always cry when you watch videos like this one".I am too sensitive.Few people adopt pets with disabilities.That was very nice of them to adopt this blind kitty!!!
