I WAS VERY BRAVE!

Sassy: "Hi everyone! So, I went to see the heart vet today. I had to have a very long check-up as well as an hour long ultrasound of my heart. Mommy says that I deserve an award for bravery since I endured all of this without fussing! Mommy put her face in my face and kissed me a lot! Actually, I liked that part! The Big Guy got home from work tonight and told me what an amazing kitty I am!

Then, I lay on the couch with Mommy and got lots of skritches and loving! I fell asleep cause I had a long day!
Spats came and cuddled with me! Bravery does have rewards!"
Here is the report from the heart vet:

I have Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. I have to take special heart medication and have regular checkups with the vet and the heart vet. Mommy says that I will be fine because she will be taking extra special care of me!

Thank you to everyone for their special get-well wishes!

Special thanks to Auntie ML for making Mommy feel better!"

Love, Sassy

Sweet little kitty, Sassy is so brave.

Daisy said...

Sassy, you are very, very brave! I know that if you take your medicines every day like a good kitty, you will feel much better and you will still live a full and long life. Pixie lived with her condition more than 8 years longer after her diagnosis at about age 5! I'll bet you will start to feel even better once you have been on your medicines for a few days. Hugs and kisses to you and your mom.

Marg said...

Sassy you are such a good kitty to go through all those tests etc. Glad you got lots of treats. We are sending lots of purrs, woofs, heehaws and a Baa to you and some prayers too. We are sure you are going to live a nice long life since you have such good care. Have a nice restful day today.

Marilynn said...

We are sooooooooo happy that Sassy came through the testing well and that there is medication that will help her feel better. What a lucky Sassy to be in Auntie Deb and The Big Guy's home, yes?

Our purrs and prayers continue for you ... and for Auntie Deb and her back.

You were a very brave kitty for sure. Tanner always needs a bit of 'happy juice' when he has his heart visit. I'll say the meds have worked wonders for Tanner, so I hope they work as well for miss Sassy.

Nimbus was diagnosed with HCM a few years back, and a couple years on the Atelenol (or however it's spelled) fixed him right up. Beware cardiologists are very expensive. Don't give up hope, especially if you catch it early. It IS reversible with medicine and diet. It's easier than diabetes but way more expensive just because of the cardiologist.
Good luck my friend and be well!

Angel and Kirby said...

You were a very brave girl! We know your Mom will take the best care of you!

PDX pride said...

What a brave girl to go through all of that without fussing! No wonder you took a giant nap afterwards! We're soooo glad for you that there's medicine for what's wrong, so that you'll start to feel better again in a few days. Just take your medicine and be a good girl for that, too, and you'll be doing well soon.

Love and purrs,

The PDX pride.

Melody said...

Oh I hope your Sassy to gets to feeling better. Glad the dr.s found out what is wrong.

My daughter's cat Bunny is going this weekend because they heard a slight heart murmur. She lives in New York I guess thats why it takes so long to get appts. The waiting part is hard. We should know something by this Saturday on whether or not her heart is strong enough for her to withstand surgery she might have for her back end. She has a Hernia back there and it's making it hard for her to go poopie.

So remember her in your prayers and I'll say an extra prayer for your Sassy.

Fin said...

ZH sent out the call and I headed right over. I am sending deep healing purrs and Mom is sending e-hugs that you are all going to be fine, and meds get you on the right track very soon.

Samantha, Clementine and Maverick said...

Purrrrs and healing vibes to you Sassy!! We are so glad you got some medicine to help you!! We will keep you in our purrayers!!! Love your pictures, too!!
Love from your TX furiends,
