June Buggie has hyperthyroidism.
He’s always been an aggressive cat, but lately even he’s been even more so. He meowed alot. He would eat his food, then go after mine.
Yet despite his eating like a mad cat, he lost weight.
I was going to take him to the vet this week anyway, but Sunday he suddenly stopped eating. He turned away Fancy Feast, his favorite, and every treat in the house.
So Monday I called our local vet and dropped him off for an exam.
Dr. Gillespie prescribed methimazole tablets twice per day. This may prove difficult because Buggie turned his nose up at the pill in a Greenies Pill Pocket and he adamantly refuses to take a pill without putting up a fight. But we have managed so far, and will keep trying. The vets office said there are other options for the meds, and I’m going to call today and give those a shot.
Oh Buggie. I never thought you could be more a pain in the ass than you already were. How wrong I was.
