Unamused Tuesday

Loyal readers, this picture is an old one but it sums up how I feel! If Äiti should extend a paw of friendship to me, I shall swipe with mighty claws and seek revenge. I know I have not been feeling my right royal self recently but this was no reason to get out the Box of Doom and take me in the Wagon of Torture to ystävämme eläinlääkäri. Now I actually quite like ystävämme eläinlääkäri as she helped save me, but I don't like being prodded, poked, having my royal blood taken (even if she says it is a lovely dark red colour) and then being held down while I have a röntgen. She even tried to relieve me of some royal urine. Pah pah pah!
But Äiti is wanting to find out what is wrong with me as I have not been eating much and very easily hiss at the Burmese butterballs. Also I have had a few peemail issues and Äiti has noticed I do not eat very much. And in fact that is a problem because I have lost 0.5kg and am underweight. (Äiti's note: Punapippuri is literally a big fluff ball with no fat: he is 3.5kg so is less than half Mirsku's weight and definitely the smallest adult cat, despite his monstrous fluff and magnificent ego).
Also my kidneys are looking a little bit small so we are waiting for the results of the blood tests which will come later - it may be there is something wrong with my kidneys, or I may just be eating too little. I am always keen to get food but actually eat very little when it comes. I don't even eat many Dreamies.
Äiti knows I want lots of cuddles at the moment, so I hope she will at least give me those after I have ripped her arms to shreds in a show of indignation. You know, she even kept telling me to be quiet when I was singing away trying to unlock the Box of Doom with my resonant tones. And this time I extended my vocalisations to when we were actually at the vet's. I thought I sounded great - and why shouldn't I shout and protest ?

Purrs to you, Puna - vet visits are no fun at all! I hope they figure out what is wrong and are able to take care of it in a way that requires the least amount of vet contact possible!

Your royal highness, we hopes you pass all your tests and start feeling better soon. Purrs.

Hi Punapippuri, I hope you are feeling much better soon!

I hope your blog is similarly in better health soon and free from the icky malware.

No one likes to go to the vet, sweetheart. But if something is making you sick, we must know what it is so we can help you to get better. Our mum says better a kitty fighting the vet visit than one that lies there passively
You are in our hearts and in our prayers. When will we know what your doctor's findings are? Cuddle with your mum and know that we love you.
(our bridge kitty brother, Colby, had small kidneys but they worked wonderfully. He lived a rich life, with no fluid replacement needed, until he was 18-20 yes old maybe a bit older per the vet.)

We're sorry we haven't been around to offer you our best girlcat purrs. We are a little worried about you (even though we have read later posts saying your tests came back aces). We do hope you'll not let those kittens worry you and that you'll eat like a champ.
