Fankful Friday

We are thankful that we finally got fed today, but not so happy that Tuomo-veli was shipped off in the Box of Doom for tests with ystävämme eläinlääkäri.
Tuomo has a lump on his throat. It is hard to see from the pictures, but it is definitely there, but Äiti says it feels like it is near the surface.
He already takes medicine for his thyroid (crushed up in creme fraiche - every night!), and Äiti says he's not showing signs that his thyroid is getting worse. This is good as it means we get to eat some food - before his medicine he was eating absolutely everything!
But of course we are worried. He does seem to be grumpier than normal, and he is far more demanding of Äiti's time. He thinks her lap is just for him.
This of course must be rectified as we all need our share - and I need extra of course.  We hope Tuomo-veli's tests come back showing good results. Ystävämme eläinlääkäri (and also a colleague) said that the 'lump' was very soft and therefore likely to be fat. Tuomo is putting on weight and is 5.6kg, so it is very likely the lump is simply because he is such a greedy porker! This means Äiti will reconsider the amount of food we get as of course we have communal feeding. Nooooo!

Hey PPP!
Don't be worried. I have had also problems with thyroid, but I know... ystävänne eläinlääkäri what to do.

We are purring that all is well, and that the feeding portions diminish not one tittle or jot.

Tuomo is such a sweet guy, we wish we could help. Sanni knows what it's like, having to have sum medicine every day - she's got sum problems with her white blood cells so it's 3/4 of a tablet every night for the rest of her life. But hey, as Tuomo knows, that means sum extra treats with it!

Lumps of any kind are always a worry and we are crossing all our paws that this will indeed turn out to be a fatty deposit.

Purrs,
The Chans

We are sending purrs to Tuomi that the tests come back good and the lump is nothing to worry about.
