The verdict is in and I've got exactly what the Woman was scared I have. She is currently blaming herself for not getting me to the vet sooner, the Awesome Man for telling her he didn't think i was getting thin, and the stupid VET who on her last night at the practice didn't happen to think (from my very evident blood test results) there was much of a problem and "suggested" an ultrasound. But, we have to move forward and stop the blame game right? We seem to have caught it early and I've been hanging out with the techs at the hospital so I'm hanging.
My vet specialist is super smart and super nice and for once she was happy the Woman was educated in what was going on and what she is going to expect. We don't have the details yet, and they are trying an appetite stimulant tonight, but this means I'm likely going to have a feeding tube inserted. The humans will have to feed me 4x a day and it could be a few weeks, it could be up to a few months, I just have to decide when I want to eat again. The humans are encouraged that I was eating yesterday but just haven't eaten since I've been at the vet.
The cause is unknown. They do know I don't have cancer (YEAH!!!) and the rest of my insides were good looking. The humans really suspect it is Rufus. Rufus has attached himself to the Tall Man even more than Kaze is attached to the Woman. Rufus thinks the Awesome Man is his mother. So we don't think we can kick him out of the house and I very well may have just gotten depressed and I'll get over it. All of this is unknown and just guessing.
So thank you all for your continued purrs, it helps us all so much knowing we aren't alone.
