A Senior Moment...

Time to face facts...Lucy Grace just had her yearly check up and once a cat is 10 ...and Lucy is 12...a cat becomes a senior!!! 

Slightly freaking out over this...

She had her blood pressure taken...if it is high...cats go on the same meds people do...she wore an itty bitty blood pressure cuff...if it wasn't so scary it would have been adorable...


If it is high it is probably my fault!!!  And it was an itty bit high!!!

I must stress her out...

Good news is she is relatively ok...bad news is she has to get her teeth cleaned and she has slightly elevated liver levels...

According to our vet...this could mean nothing or something.

She has to have blood work again in a few weeks.

I might need blood pressure work by then.

She is my angel...she knew my mom and dad.

I will be googling this until we know for sure what is going on.  I just read an article that said cats should have milk thistle to help liver function.
Ordering now...



  1. I fed my kitty garlic pills and he lived to be 17 before he passed from old age and he never, NEVER had to be treated for anything.

    I think any cat's BP would be high at the vet. What cat LIKES the vet? None I know.

    I'm sure she's fine. She looks great!

  2. Our dog is 15, so I have an idea of how you feel. I hope everything is okay with Lucy Grace!

  3. Thanks Kathy and Ti...I appreciate your thoughts...

  4. Oh no. I hope they both turn out to be great.
