hi Bonnie,

oh it's canned pumpkin, when he seems a bit blocked up or his stool is hard, I give him some canned pumpkin (warmed with a few freeze dried chicken crumbles - Halo's Liv a littles) - it helps very quickly :)

hi Natalie!

Actually, I almost wrote that I was leary of the microchip, because wouldn't his little system view it as a foreign object? I figured since he is a 'flight risk' though (and never heard anyone else chime in on this) I would do it - really glad you brought it up. Whimsy got out just a few days ago and it was really hard to catch him, so I will weigh this carefully. Ditto on the vax as well. Would rather not give any shots.

We likely will sedate him for the visit :( because this is all new stuff to my wild boy - but paws crossed he will be agreeable unlike last time!

He's liking his pumpkin every now and then, and I will add some probiotics too, good idea.

would love to see that microchip article whenever you have time to post.

thanks for weighing in, Natalie.

Shannon - Did you know that microchips have been found to be carcinogenic? I have articles on it, confirmed by a holistic veterinarian. Is there really
a need for it - if Whimsy's safe inside, why do it. I am in a rush right
now, but if you'd like, I can post the articles. This falls into the
category of unnecessary vaccines - only vaccinate for the cat's
lifestyle....
No, I wouldn't suggest needless X-rays - they have to sedate a cat and
slight constipation is not good enough of a reason - try some probiotics and fiber in Whimsy's food. My vet sedates as little and as rarely as possible.
For x-rays, they must be very still. Natalie

Whimsy's check up is in a few weeks and wanted to get your opinions on what
to get done.

We will likely have to have him under like before, as I don't see him being
cooperative, but we'll see. I'll be touching base with my vet to solidify
'the plan'.

I am going to have the snap test re-done because theoretically he could be
double positive (FIV), full blood panel, urine tested (stool was recently
tested already), micro chipped, oral exam - anything else that is good to do as long as he is there? The only 'issue' I notice is he tends towards mild
constipation (ever since I met him) - given the issues that can face an
FeLV's intestines, is it prudent to do an xray? or anything else?

The temps have plummeted here in the Midwest and I'm so grateful he's safe and warm inside. We bought him lots of toys and warm bedding. Because he's in the sun room, he has more square footage than any other cat (or person!)
living here. It's so wonderful to spoil him as he should be.

Thanks for any input.

Shannon and Sir Whimsy the Spoiled
