Happy Vet News

Katie and I took Shel­ley to the vet today. We were wor­ried, as Katie had seen blood in the stool of some cat when chang­ing the cat­box that Shel­ley uses most often.

We’re keep­ing Shel­ley iso­lat­ed for the next cou­ple of days to see if it was her or not, but oth­er­wise, the vet declared her incred­i­bly healthy for any 16-year-old cat, much less one who is FIV pos­i­tive. (She was diag­nosed with FIV in 1999. We have no way of know­ing how long she’s had it.)

She is get­ting cataracts, and her vision has already been affected.

She had her rabies vac­ci­na­tion, but the vet does­n’t think it’s wise to give her any oth­er shots at this point. It’s impor­tant to be sure that the oth­er cats con­tin­ue to stay cur­rent on their vac­ci­na­tions, and that she not be around oth­er cats or become an out­side cat again. None of that, of course, is news.

We won’t get the results of her blood work back ’til next week, but things look great!
