In other news, Theo has hit 4kg! 4.12 kg to be precise. Whooooooooo!!!! For new readers, my boy has inflammatory bowel disease and was very poorly indeed the first months of this year. He lost a LOT of weight and was just skin and bone. Ideally he needs to put on another half a kilo to be back to where he was, which is pretty much spot on for his size, but he went down to about 3.3 of them. Scary.
He's now low-normal for his size, so even if he levels out here it's fine, but I'd love it if he got back to nearer where he was before his illness kicked in badly.
The vet has said we can try to introduce a wet food into his special diet. We've decided on a totally novel protein, so Theo has just scoffed his first can of VENISON prescription cat food, the spoiled mog. Of course, it's hideously expensive *rolls eyes* but y'know. He was so happy, he loves his wet food and it's been six months or so since he had any and then it was just plain chicken for several months before that. If he's happy, I'm happy, I'm just so thankful that he's alive.
OMG, I have just realised that little Lucy, now, weighs just about the same as Theo at his most poorly... Lucy is about half the size of Theo. Just shows how poorly he was, I guess.
