New Problems.

We're back from the vet. It looks like Opie's thyroid may be crapping out (on top of everything else). But the vet also said that it wasn't time to let him go yet, so that's a relief.

And everyone oohed and aahed at how obviously in love Opie and Bitsy are. The vet said she thinks it's one of the things that's helping to keep Opie young.

Only a few tears. Nothing major. :/

Yea. The problem is that the thyroid meds (if, in fact he needs them -- bloodwork won't be back until tomorrow) may do bad things to his already-sketchy kidneys.

Thyroid problems are common, and controllable, in older cats.

Walter had an overactive thyroid, and so does Callie.

Today, Steve the guest cat goes back to our neighbor....I wonder if he'll give him Doritos? (Not much - he just got to lick a couple.)

The issue is that thyroid meds will make his failing kidneys even worse.
