I took Iggy to the vet yesterday. It turned out he does not have earmites, just wax. But more seriously, he has lost weight, so I had him tested for hyperthyroidism and for liver/kidney issues. I will get the results today. The vet gave me medication for his ears and flagyl to settle his stomach. (Because he throws up and has diarrhea so much.) The total cost was $295.

The vet thinks he is older than he was reported to be by the rescue foundation. Of course, they were only guessing. She thinks he is for sure in the double digits.

This morning, after reading CCF's Christmas post, I remembered that I needed to order my Florida grandson's birthday present. Got that done on Amazon this morning - $51.

Variables are at 57%.

I am meeting with my upstairs neighbor tomorrow morning about my ceiling repair. Then around noon my BFF will arrive. We are going to a wedding together in downtown Chicago on Saturday evening. Unfortunately, she can only stay through Sunday afternoon, so it will be a short visit.

Today I need to do a little shopping for groceries and cat food. I have switched Iggy to wet food already, but I think I might try out Blue's wet food. Just a few cans, in case the vet recommends a special food.

My fridge seems to be operating okay, so I am taking that worry off the table!

    I hope the tests get to the bottom of iggy's problem or that the food change makes a difference for him. Poor thing! I remember some of your posts a long while back about needing to launder a spread because he'd gotten sick.

    I hope Iggy is okay.
