Thank you for all your kind words and purrs and hopes yesterday for Bucky's vet visit. I did take him to the vet yesterday for a recheck. Sadly, his kidney numbers are still bad. To quote the vet, he should be dead, or at least very sick. To give you an idea, his creatinine is 6.1. The max in the normal range is 2.4. His BUN is 60. The max in the normal range is 36. She said his kidneys have irreparable damage, but the fluids sustain him. He eats, plays and seems to feel fine. He weighed 11.25 pounds three weeks ago. He now weighs 12. Since I have a tendency to make good cats get fat, I need to be careful. You've all seen the pictures of Lucy.
Lucy and Simba still do not get along with him very well. Bucky wants to play with them, but they take his playful gestures as threatening. They respond by hissing, growling and hiding.
Bucky hoping a kitty will come by and want to play.
We are leaving at the end of the month for a two-week vacation. I am trying to find a cat sitter who can give Bucky his fluids, make sure each cat eats (Bucky takes Lucy's food and Lucy takes Simba's food) and make sure they all survive.
I wish you all a happy weekend!
