Mancat Monday - In the Pink

Well we wishes we could say I am in the pink of heath but I am not. I was diagnosed with Feline Lekumia in my bone marrow.

For now the antibiotics and steroids seem to have it under control.

Tuiren let me borrow her pink T-shirt. It is way to big for me, but it is the thought that counts.

She wanted me to know she loves me and is pawing for me to get better.

At the moment we are trying to control my hyperthyroidism with Hills y/d diet, since I can't take the medication anymore. So far I have been eating the food, it is OK, I don't really love it but I will eat it. We are not sure how well this diet will work for me. It's success depends on me not eating anything other then this food ever, and I don't like it that much. Eventually I may have to have Radioactive iodine therapy.

I wants to thank those that have donated toward my vet bills, we really appreciate it. And I wants to thank everyone that is purring, praying, sending good wishes, crossing paws and sending pawsitive thoughts. They mean a lot to us and I just know they are helping me get better.  Remember if you need any Photoshopping done for a $10 or more donation toward my vet bill Mommy will be happy to Photoshop anything you want within her capabilities. Our paypal is alasandra (at) cableone (dot) net.

Happy Labor Day Everyone!!!!!!


  1. Awww , you look really cute in pink Sock´s <3
    Me and mom are keeping paws and thumbs crossed that you will get better and that the evil C will go away !!

  2. Awwwww handsome Socks! We are so sorry to read you are not well. Oh dear! :-(

    We continue to pray and purr for you. Please please take care! You look adorable in pink! x

  3. Socks, see if your mom will contact Cheri over at Cats of the Wildcat Woods. At least one of her cats was/is hyper-t and she managed it via homeopathic means--not that that can cure it, but to support the organs (heart, etc) because hyper-t puts so much strain on them. The I-131 can be done if your kidneys are working okay.

    We're continuing to purr and purray for you!

  4. Hey Socks, I hope all that wine in Paris didn't bother you!! You look very handsome in Pink!!

    We're purring for you and hope that you continue to do well.

    Happy Labor Day!!!

  5. Socks eating one thing all of the time is frustrating but you will get used to it. I am only allowed to eat one thing to (Royal Canin Veterinary Formula Rabbit)...because of allergies.
    Are you allowed to have Coconut oil? It is tasty and super good for cats and it helps their immune system. If you are allowed to eat it, have your Mommy put a 1/4 tsp per 10 lbs of weight in your kibble ONCE a day. Tell her she can google the benefits of Coconut Oil for cats. It might help in more ways than you think and it is NATURAL!
    Love, Cody

  6. Socks, we're purring lots for you and hope you continue to feel okay. That shirt looks great on you!

  7.! We are sending 12000000000000 healing purrs!! Thanks for wishing me a happy labor day over at the ladies of autumn tea party! Happy labor day to you too Scylla!

  8. My girl cats are sending lots of loving purrs your way. We think that was sweet of Tuiren to let you wear her pink sweater :) The only labor here today is Sissy will get a butt bath!

  9. We're sorry that you've had bad news about your health, Sock. Hopefully the medicine the vet has given you will make you feel better.

  10. You're looking pink and perfect in that borrowed t-shirt, Socks. Mom and I are sending happy healing thoughts that your special food and medicines will help you.

    Love and licks,

  11. We are all purring and praying for you around the clock dear socks and we just won't stop. We know your Mom will take the best care of you. Love and hugs from all of us.

  12. Socks Mom knows from her experience with Abby that the Hyper-T can place great strain on the Heart so please follow your diet to the "t"! Cheri at the Cats of the Wildwoods has some excellent advise and we hope it will help you as she tried to help us when Abby was so sick. WE are all purring very hard for you. We wish we could help out with your Vet $$$ but we are still trying to figure ours out for Abby.


  13. We are sending our healing purrs to keep you feeling well.

  14. Socks, we are so very sorry that you are now FeLV+ in your bone marrow. Mom says that the only thing you can do for it is take the antibiotics and steroids. Have your Mom ask your vet if you can have L-lysine. Our vet recommended it to help keep the FeLV virus in check. We are all purring for you to keep as healthy as possible.
