Beautiful Anakin

Look at my beautiful boy this morning!! I really can tell he's pretty much back to his normal self and feeling much better! He's back to running in the bathroom whenever I go on that side of the house. He knows when I go over there he gets a few pieces of the other cats dry food as a treat! He had not been doing this since he was sick. After talking with the vet this morning & my observing Ani some more we think the best course of action for his twitching is to watch & wait. I think it's just going to fade away with time till it stops completely and my vet thinks so too. Honestly today the twitching seemed to be much less than yesterday so far. However if for some reason it does get worse we will go from there and see what we need to do for him. Thank you again for all of your well wishes & love for my gorgeous lil man!!

Anakin had bloodwork today...

Anakin's bloodwork done this morning all came back normal. They checked everything, Liver enzymes, white cells, red cells, electrolytes, glucose, kidneys, thyroid, etc.... it was a full wellness panel. The only thing out of range was his Total Protein, the range goes to 3.9 and Anakin's is 4.0. She didn't think that was an issue thought. So they don't think that anything on the bloodwork is a part of this shivering jerking motion that Ani is doing. We also decided yesterday to take his cone off too and so far he's really happy it's off and not irritating himself at all. Both vets are going to do some research tonight and see if they can figure out anything about why Anakin is having this twitching. Hopefully that can come up with something. Ani goes back to the vet on Monday to get a UTI recheck, with his white cells being so good on his bloodwork they really think the infection is gone. But we want to be sure, better safe than sorry. Here's a short video of Ani twitching this morning. He isn't doing this all day long. The twitching comes and goes at random times. I really hope that it's just some weird residual effect from all the meds he's been on that will just fade away and stop soon on its own.
Thank you all for the well wishes!!

Anakin 's feeling much better :)

I spoke to the vet this morning about his twitching (it's really more like a shiver and then a jerk.) She thinks the same thing that I do that this is just one of the ways he responds to pain. So I am to continue his pain meds if & when I think he needs it. He had a dose of pain meds at about 5 am because he was twitching that should have worn off at about 5 Pm tonight. The good news is I haven't seen any twitching sense this morning! Ani took his last dose of antibiotics tonight. I will check with the vet about when to bring him to retest him for his UTI to make sure it is gone. I can really tell a difference in how he feels today. He seems like he's much better! Here's a picture of Ani getting ready to attack my hand on the bed. Thank you so much for all of the well wishes for Anakin!

Ani has had a minor setback..

 Ani had a minor setback Saturday but is doing better today. I think he must've really made his boy parts sore Friday while I had his cone off. Saturday morning he didn't want to eat very much and was twitching again like he was in pain. I gave him some of his pain medicine and Saturday night he seems much better. He ate his dinner and Peed and I gave him another pain medicine that night. Same this morning seemed fine all day but I didn't give him any pain meds. Tonight he is twitching again. I'm going to give him another pain med if he's still twitching after dinner and talk to the vet in the morning. This is the only symptom he has so I'm not sure if it's just because he is still hurting some or something else. Other than the twitching he's acting fine. I'll keep you all posted.
