I can't believe Baby Pimp is 15 years old. He has been with me for just about half my life! I'm 34 and he's 15 -- he's definitely been part of my entire adult life, and I can't think of a better companion! Pimp is the best.
|It's my birthday. Everyone get happy!|
This birthday is made even better because I just took him to the vet to get checked out last weekend. He is very thin (I lovingly call him my little bag of bones) and so I wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else going on. He has hyperthyroid, you know, so that contributes to his scrawniness, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't another underlying issue. He is all of 8 pounds!
We did a full workup -- bloodwork, urinalysis and tested for his T4 levels (that's they hyperthyroid count that would say if it's high and not under control).
And guess what? Pimp is just about as healthy as a kitty can be! He passed all his tests!
|I'm a healthy old man!|
So I'm just going to keep an eye on him and weigh him all the time to make sure he doesn't lose more weight. Basically, this is just happy weight right now, the vet thinks, but we're going to make sure by weighing him often.
I get on my digital scale first, then grab him and weigh myself with him. The number we got was exactly what he weighed at the vet, so I know it's accurate. Hurray!
So good news all around on this great day!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PIMP!
