Rattling with pills


I feel sorry for poor Fitz!  He is now on:

  • chemo tabs
  • prednisone
  • tabs for his immune system
  • a sachet to protect his stomach
  • tabs to protect his liver

…and now we find out he is also suffering from hypothyroidism, so he will need tablets for that, too! One of the symptoms is loss of the hair on the tip of the tail – adds insult to injury!

He is such a stoic, though. Even though he is now on a diet (weight gain due to steroids), and even though he is on loads of medication, he takes it all in his stride. I hope I’m the same if I’m ever in the same position (superstitiously knocks on wood).

  1. Ah, poor sweetie. But at least he’s hanging in there. And lucky you that you don’t have to pill cats! xx


  2. Poor Fitz! That’s quite a regimen to remember to give him every day.
