Mr Buttons Update

Hi Friends.
We read all your comments of support and we appreciate the love and caring. It means a lot to me and the family. I felt the supportive energy helping to get me back to better.

Dad gave me my fluids and I took them like a Champ. I tried to spit out my Mirtazapine and it got stuck on my tongue. Not doing that again as I started drooling like I saw a bowl of treats. MOL After a bunch of gulps it went down. Dad says it is such a small piece (1/4) that he needs a better way to give it to me. He will try baby food next. Yeah!

I ate dry food last night. Not a lot but way more than the the past days. This morning I ate a little more. Dad uses the "Buddy Trick." When I stop eating he puts a few treats in and mixes them up with my food. I then eat the treats and more food. 3 times he did that and I finished my meal. Dad thinks he is tricking me but Buddy told me about this and we are tricking him MOL.

Dad is going to look into food for Kidney disease and see if I like it before buying a case. He takes really good care of me.

I am only 7 years old and Dad says I will have many years with him. I will fight to get all the days I will be given by the Cat Mother Bast.

Thanks so much for all your suppurrt. Keep it coming and I will be better soon. 

Mr Buttons
Dad Pete

  4. Buttons, that treat trick is pretty awesome! I'm glad it is helping you eat more (and get more treats!!). I'm continuing to send lots of purrs your way.

  5. Mr. Buttons, I am new to your blog! I am sorry that you aren't feeling well, but it certainly sounds like your hoomin is doing a good job with you! Tell him to try pill paste, which is like pill pockets only in a tub. It's like PlayDoh, and you scoop out a wee bit and put the pill piece inside of it...and offer like a treat!

  6. We keep purring for you, Mr Buttons, and we that Dad Pete will help you to go through this and enjoy many more years with him. Purrs

  7. I am sorry you are having problems with your kidneys, Mr Buttons. I know your dad will take best care of you and your medication will help you feel better and keep everything under control.
    That is a good trick for getting extra treats!

  8. Hooray for good eating, Mr Buttons!
    Petcretary tried that treat trick on MJF, but he is too wise to her ways and picks them out and leaves the noms...silly dog!
    Sending purrs, hugs and lots of POTP!
    ((((( ♥ )))))

  9. Mr. Buttons, we continue to purr for you.

  11. That's a lot of trouble for some extra treats, Mr Buttons, but at least you are getting those.

  12. I am praying for you Mr. Buttons and I know your Dad takes the best care of you. There are a lot of kidney diets available through the vet, they should give you some free samples. XO

  13. We'll keep sending you purrs and you keep getting more better, deal?

  14. Oh Buttons, we're so glad you're doin' better. But NO, purrlease tell uncle Pete not to get that Rx food. It's really not good fur you. 'Course, ya' need to stop with da dry foods and start eatin' wet stuffs or raw. The bestest diet fur kidney disease is high protein, low phos. The Tanya CRF site is a great place to compare noms and find one you will eat. Sis Lexi luvved ham and ham gravy baby food. But, she couldn't eat just that. MOL We're sayin
    purrayers. Ifin ya' need anythin', just let us know. Big hugs

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Raena

  15. well that is a sneaky way to get extra treats, and an awful lot of work. I bet if you promised your peoples that you would eat regularly

    Sending purrs of healing

  16. Hi Mr. Buttons!! Sorry we have been so absent lately. Lita is pretty ill, and we have fallen out of touch with many of our friends, but we will try to be better.

    Some kitties live many many years with kidney disease, and we would not be surprised if you are one of them! :) We are sending you lots of purrs and prayers. We hope you will eat some more and start to feel a little better soon!

  17. Thank you for your update, Mr. Buttons. We're sure you're in good hands with a Dad like yours :D We'll keep sending Healing Pawkisses your way and purray that you feel better soon <3 <3 <3

  18. Well Mr. Buttons you are in the VERY best of hands with your Dad taking care of you. Angel Sammy was good about taking his pills with baby food for a long time and you can do that too - baby food is pretty good I hear! We are sending you tons of POTP too just in case you need a big supply of it - my Mom says you can't have too much of it!

    Love and Hugs, Teddy

  19. Meow Meow! Sending more purrs your way--keep up the good work!
    xoxo, Meep

  20. It's always a problem for cat and human when the pill makes you drool and foam. I know that too well. But I am very glad you are eating, Mr Buttons. that's so very important. My Cammie has kidney disease and won't eat any of the food the doctor prescribes for her - and we have to be very careful of what she eats as the slightest variation could cause her to vomit and stop eating. But she is doing well with normal food - and plenty of water! If anyone can look after you, though, Mr Buttons, it'll be your dad.

  21. Mr. Buttons, we are also so sorry you had to get this problem. Kidney disease is no fun, just ask Kali. Do you find you want to eat a table leg when you have your 1/4 of a pill. Kali gets very hungry and eats everything....she is no longer picky. We are sending purrs out to Bast and calling for her to step in and ease your suffering.


    Shoko and Kali

  22. Mr. Buttons, we are purring and praying for you lots! And with Dad's care and love for you, we are hopeful that you will be around for a long, long time. Big hugs!


Let us cats know what you think of our post! No hissing please.
