Thank you all

Much more optimistic today. Inigo doesn't seem himself, but I'm hoping that's just the combination of being away from home, medication, and all the strange sounds.

They did pull out some more fluid, but it wasn't as much. His blood pressure is ok, but his kidneys are not doing so well because of the diuretic. They've started him on an ace inhibitor, that should help.

We hope with all that we have that being home will see him brighter and more energetic, and that he'll start eating more.

Rumbles is so out of sorts. He doesn't let us out of his sight when we get home, and he cuddles us both lots. He snuggled up to me in the same way Inigo does, I think he knew I needed that.

I've got photos of him that I'll post soon - been having issues with the laptop so a lot of my updates have been from my phone or ipad (hence some of the odd spellings or grammar - auto-correct is a funny thing) I'll also be able to start visiting more once the laptop is sorted.

We're so blessed to know so many kind friends here in the blogosphere and twitterverse and facebook. Your support has meant more than you'll ever know.

Rumbles, it sound as if you're doing a pawsome job holding down the fort and giving cuddles to Rumblemum.

Purrlease give effuryone headbutts and nosetaps fur us!

Sparkle said...

Paws crossed that Inigo will continue to improve at home - he must have been miserable being at the clinic. Sending lots of purrs and licks!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

That is good news and I'm very happy to hear it!

Old Kitty said...

Me and Charlie continue to purr and purr and purr and send tons of hugs to sweet Inigo and adorable Rumbles! We are so heartened by this positive and optimistic update! You all must be so relieved! Inigo is a sweetie and Rumbles is just lovely!

Take care

Brian said...

I am so very glad to hear the update is a little bit better. Please tell your sweet boy we send purrs. Don't worry about visiting us, just focus on taking care of sweet Inigo. Thanks for the update!!!

We're still purring for Inigo! We want him to get better and be able to come back home.

Simba said...

I hope I am reading this correctly, that Inigo is coming home. Even though he may have to go back for checks and even for some fluid again, we are hoping he will be MUCH better in terms of eating and stuff when he gets home. Being at the Vet's to stay must be strange for him.

Sweet Praline said...

So sorry things have been out of sort lately for both of the boys. Glad to hear that Inigo is a little better. I think Rumbles is missing his brother.

I'm still purring really hard!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, and Bibi-Chan said...

Hang in there, Rumblemum. We are all thinking of you.

Daisy said...

I'm glad Inigo is feeling a bit better; I know he will be so happy to get back home! We're purring our very best for Inigo!

Forever Foster said...

Inigo darling, we are sending our most massive purrs to you. Rumbles, you are a good boy. Please give your mum a big smooch from us.

Mishkat said...

We're still sending many many purrs to our wonderful friend Inigo! We're hoping that that the vet can figure out the right combination of medications for him (sometimes it takes a while). We think your post means that he is either home, or will be home soon - we think cats feel much better at home, so we're keeping our paws crossed.

Also sending many purrs to Rumbles, the Rumblemum, and the Rumbledad!

xoxo from Franklin, Dobby, Tasha, and mom Katie

Kea said...

Continued purrs and healing Light to Inigo, and lots of hugs to you!

We hope he can come home soon; he'll feel better in his own space, with Rumbles and his humans, we think.

William said...

Good news!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

So happy to read this this morning. Sometimes it can be really hard to find the right combo of drugs (human or feline!)

I hope that Inigo will start feeling more like himself when he gets home with his Rumblefamily.

Clarissa said...

We are so glad to learn that Inigo is doing better. We are sure he will be happy to be home! And it sounds like Rumbles will be glad to see him, too!

Purrs for Inigo!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

We are glad to hear that the fluid wasn't much at all...and hoping the next time...there's NONE! We are purraying he gets to go home son. We send (((HUGS))) to you all with extra for Inigo to get well.

Raymond and Busby said...

Good to hear Inigo is back home. We are sure being with all of you will make him feel much better. We are purring and purring for all of you!

Sammy and Andy said...

We are so relieved to hear that Inigo is more stable now. We have been purraying as hard as we can for his recovery ....and that he will soon be home with y'all. Rumbles, we send you comforting head butts, as we continue purraying for Inigo.

Love to all of you.

Pirulo Furry said...

I come from reading Max's blog (blindmaximus.blogspot.com) and he was asking the anipals to have good and positive thoughts for Iñigo. That way we'll be sending him a lot of good energy. I know that it is what we have been doing and we will continue because we all love Iñigo. He's a sweet good boy who has made a lot of e-friends. So, my dear almost-like-brother Iñigo, these are good energy purrrs, headbumps and nosetaps. Blessings for you and your family.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I'm still sending my furry best Sibe Vibes to my pals!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

Marg said...

We sure hope he starts to feel better soon. Poor Rumbles and poor Mom. Hugs to all of you and we are sending tons more purrs and woofs and heehaws and a Baa. We have our paws all crossed too. He just has to get better.

Cathy Keisha said...

Let's start a chant. LET'S GO INIGO! LET'S GO INIGO! Healing purrz for a very special mancat.

BeadedTail said...

We hardly slept last night because we were worrying about Inigo so we're so glad that he's feeling better and we know he'll be so happy to be home again with his family! His vets sound very wonderful and caring and looking for the right combination of medications and treatment to make him well again. We're still sending purrs to him and Rumbles!

Ginger Jasper said...

I am so glad that there are good signs. You must be so relieved I am sending rumbly purrs and mum is crossing her human paws it goes on improving.. Hugs GJ xx

The Whiskeratti said...

We're glad there is some good news. It's so hard to be calm when our luffed ones are not well.

Eric and Flynn said...

We are very glad things are looking better today. We are sending lots more purrs for Inigo.
Mum said can you give Rumbles a great big hug and kiss for her because he is probably confused with everything that is going on and wonders where his brother is when he is at the vets.

Carolyon said...

Have you guys looked into doing a kidney transplant? My Abbey was looking into for me a wee while back - had a few signs of kidney failure but ok now. There is a lot of info on it on the web.

Purrs coming your way

Katnip Lounge said...

Baby steps...We are purring for Inigo 24/7 in shifts...sometimes it takes the vet a few tries to get the meds just right.
We send our love to the entire Rumblefamily.

Your Daily Cute said...

I'm so happy to hear some positive news about Inigo. I haven't been able to come by for a few days, so this is just the kind of update I was hoping to find.

Please continue to give him lots of hugs, smooches and nosetaps from me, Pimp and Moo!

ABBY said...

We are so happy to hear of improvements and we will continue to purr that that is the direction Inigo is going in. We just know he is going to feel better and better and be home again very soon.

Au and Target said...

Good to hear Inigo is getting better. Poor Rumbles is missing him, huh? And taht vet smell on you must disturb him too. Purring for you.

Whskr & Dash Kitten said...

Keeping you in our hearts. I have lost count of the number of times I have picked up the phone to text and ask how Inigo is....

Keep the faith, let's see Inigo home again and surrounded by all the love he needs.

Marjorie and Dash Kitten (who wants you to know he will be 4 on Monday!!)
