Boris grows Bigger, while Schooner grows Younger! (February 2010)
For the past few months we’ve all been worried about Schooner. He was losing weight and his fur felt dry. To the amazement of all of us younger cats, there were days when Schooner didn’t seem interested in eating or even in playing.
SO Schooner went off to the veterinary clinic for 48 hours. We missed him, but Pat explained it was important that he be put on IV fluids to lower his phosphorus levels.
When Schooner came home, we were SO happy to see that he was obviously feeling MUCH better. In fact, every day since his return, he has seemed to grow younger and stronger. His fur is soft and fluffy again and even his tail seems longer! Pat says he has to be on a special diet now and we are not supposed to eat his food.
These next pictures are a bit blurry because Schooner was in a playful mood and wouldn’t sit still for the camera. But look at the expression on his face:
We are so glad that he is again enjoying his toys:
Schooner will be 17 years old on March 1 and we will certainly celebrate!
Meanwhile, Boris, who was born in November 2008 (the same month Schooner came to live with us!), has now grown larger than his mother Natasha. Here are some pictures of Boris as a baby:
