Hello, everyone!

Kate here. The vet called today to say that Tilly has thyroid disease. This is the best possible outcome we could expect for now. Tomorrow I will get her new medicine and renew the ecstasy of cat-pilling. After 3 weeks, she gets another test and we go from there. There is a 10% chance the med won't help, but we're thinking positive.

Tilly had been using the cat carrier as a hidey hole, but after the visit, she won't go near it!
Toby is fine. Numb as a hake, but fine. He sleeps on the bed and is very disgruntled when we want to come to bed- typical cat behavior. I end up with aches and pains from being contorted, but the cat sleeps well with plenty of space.

I wasn't able to blog earlier as the server was down. Grrrr!
Thanks again to all my hundreds (it seems) of friends who are concerned about one little Tilly cat.

Take care and good night.

Ohh, we know all about thyroids because my mum's went wrong when she was still at school and they had to do an operation. It must have worked well because that was 20 years ago and she is still fine now. Hope that Tilly can get some medicine which makes her feel a bit better so she can still enjoy her senior years!
"Numb as a hake"??? This sounds like rather a disrespectful description of my good friend and comrade-in-floofiness Toby!
