The typhoon was CRAZY!  It woke me up around 1am and it was like every single window of the house was being simultaneously hit by a firehose.  The zoo was awake and Fri was saying stuff like "What's going on?" and "Uhh, what's going onnnnn?"  I could feel the house slightly swaying from the strong winds - it was totally wild!

Chami is doing great.  I've changed the feeding routine to 4 times a day (instead of 3) and this has actually been very good for everybody (except for maybe me  Cheesy ).  Anyway, all is good and stable over here (including me  Smiley  ).

Chami and I went for her 1 month checkup today.

Her CREA is in the normal range, and her BUN is only a bit high, and she's gained a bunch more weight.  The doctor was surprised and pleased.

Me, too.   Kiss

I've actually not seen Chami looking so happy and upbeat and acting this goofy in a long time - I'd assumed her more tranquil vibe was due to her being older... but man was I wrong.

I'm to continue giving Chami 90 ml in the morning and 90 ml again at night, and we'll go see the doctor again in a month.

I'm glad to hear Chami had a good report at her vet checkup, August! It's always a good sign when cats are cheerful, too!

Hello there!

Chami is doing crazy-great.  Like, she hasn't been this playful and happy in years, maybe.  I'd thought she was a lot more chill these years because of her age or because of moving to this house but I was wrong.  She's now acting like her goofy self from years ago... it's amazing.

I take Chami for her next checkup next Monday.  Her numbers were so great at the end of November, the doctor said we could skip December's visit, so we happily took that suggestion!   Grin

I can't remember if I wrote this last year or not but just when Chami got sick is around the time I found out that all the freeze-dried raw foods I'd been importing in from Hong Kong were now unavailable to me due to tighter Japan restrictions.  I was FRANTIC.  Seriously you guys.  How did I survive that?   Wink

We have now successfully transitioned to defrosted frozen raw that is made in Japan or imported to Japan from Australia.  Chami LOVES it (everyone else, too).  How lucky could I be?  She has regained all her lost weight and gained a bunch more (she was underweight to start with).

But in order to help her gain weight, I've made sort of a crazy-cat-lady-not-making-many-friends schedule for myself  Tongue  - I'm feeding the cats 4 times a day starting at 4am (starting at 4am so that I can feed them at 9:30am before I go to visit my mom at her assisted living Home).  Plus, I'm still giving Chami her SubQ every 12 hours, and I always hang out with her for 30 minutes (just her and myself in the restroom  Kiss ) and play with her and give her massages before her shot.  Then of course I do play time and tummy rubs for all the other cats.  I'm exhausted from around 4pm. (sweat-laff icon).  But Chami is really doing so well I want to keep it up.   Smiley

So all is good over here.

So happy to hear that Chami is doing so well!  You are an outstanding kittymom, August.  They are so lucky to have you caring for them. 

I hope your mom is thriving in her "home".  No doubt she enjoys your visits.
