No news and no changes

Grendel‘s condition remains unchanged at present.  He continues suffering from trembles that quake him from head to toe.  He also continues losing weight despite this very regular behavior:

His appetite seems normal both for food and water.  His activity remains the same.  Even his attitude and interraction continue on their respective normal courses.

Nevertheless, I know him too well to be fooled by the feline inclination to hide at all costs any sign of illness or weakness.

Yet all the tests have thus far been negative.  No thyroid issues, no diabetes, no infection, no nothing.

I find this very troubling.

We have more investigation forthcoming, more tests, but I refuse to put him through too much considering his overall condition.  Stress is a cat’s worst enemy after all.

  1. Although all of The Kids are FeLV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline AIDS) negative, those were included in the battery of tests Grendel has gone through in an attempt to figure out what’s wrong. Thankfully the results came out negative–but the other side of that coin is that we still don’t know what’s wrong with him.

  2. Glad to hear that his appetite remains good despite everything. Like you say, negative test results are good except for the fact that he is obviously sick.
