Inigo update - Rumblemum

I've been quiet because he's been doing well. I didn't want to get everyones hope up, but he was eating like normal, sleeping on the bed, greeting me at the door, coming for cuddles... it was like before he was sick.

I was getting my hopes up, I knew there was a good chance that I'd be crushed.

Today Inigo went to the cardiologist.

Long story short... he's doing better.

This being said: he is still very, very thin. He needs to eat LOTS more... but I have hope.

Thank you all for your support over the last few days, and for thinking of us all. It's been such a hard time, and having you all here has made such a difference.

You're a wonderful group of friends to us all.

This is great news! We can't help but think that the Power of the Purr had something to do with Inigo's improvement! We're very happy for you all and we hope our friend starts putting on some weight. xoxo

MoMo said...

As long as he is eating and happy, there is hope. Continuing purrs from this corner of the world, from little me :)

Sweet Praline said...

This is much better news! I will continue to sending healing purrs for Inigo!

Pumpkinpuddy said...

OMC my eyes are leaking. But this time they're happy tears. *doing happy dance* Mom and I will keep purring and purraying that Inigo keeps improving. *breathes big sigh of relief* smoochies for my favorite boys!

flicka47 said...

Yay!!! That is so good to hear. Hopefully with the right combos of medicine he will be Relatively healthy and happy for a good long time! Hugs to all of you!!

PuppyNumber7 said...

Go Inigo! Keep it up little buddy! Powerful voodoo #pawcircle and #healingpaw combine to help you eat and make you strong. xxx

Simba said...

Mom and I are so glad to hear that things are better for Inigo, at least for now. We are very glad he has more time to enjoy life and for you to enjoy him, and for Rumbles to enjoy his company, even if it may not be forever. We are sorry for your roller coaster ride, and hope he can start to pick up some weight, or at least not get thinner. Still purring and purring here for my pal.

Darwin said...

More healing purrs from me and the hoomans. We are glad Inigo is doing well >^oo^<

Anipal Photo Hunt said...

Oh thank goodness! We've really been pulling for him over here!!

That makes us so happy!

I am happy to hear good news, that Inigo is having some quality of life back. I understand why you feel cautious. Cats can be amazingly strong at bouncing back, but then you hit a bad day.....Jack is doing well right now too, and I thought he would be much sicker or gone already with the multiple diseases, conditions, and syndromes he deals with. I am continuing to think about Inigo every day and pray for his full recovery. You never know. Jack came back from death 2 years ago with nothing but love and prayer, and the aid of a painkiller.

Au and Target said...

Hooray! We're so relived. But we'll keep purring just in case.

Sparkle said...

I am so relieved to hear this! Paws crossed that the medication keeps doing the trick, and that he puts back some of the lost weight. Nothing would make me happier than to see Inigo's quality of life return for good.

Poppy Q said...

We are glad to hear that you are feeling a bit better Ingio. You keep eating your noms and giving your mum smooches.

Luv

Karen Jo said...

Way to go, Inigo! I am so happy that you are doing so much better. I also hope that you have found the right combination and dosages of meds. Don't worry if Inigo just slowly increases the amount that he eats. Herman just ate a little more, then a little more, until he was almost well, then he started wolfing food down.

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

Like so many others, we have been waiting for news of our friend Inigo and we are so relieved that he is doing better. We know he is in the very best of hands and hope that he will gradually regain his strength and weight. Hang in there, Rumblemum!

Purrs, Woofs and Hugs,
The Chans, Tommy and #1

Brian said...

Thanks so much for the update. I can't begin to tell you how often we think of sweet Inigo and you. Purrs and hugs to you. Everyone loves Inigo!!!

The Whiskeratti said...

What wonderful news!! We're so glad to hear this!

Forever Foster said...

Dearest darling Inigo, we are in tears reading about your progress. I wonder if Inigo would like kitten formula, like Biolac? My mum gives me some of that as an extra supplement when I get a bit skinny. It is good and fatty. My panting and breathing improves when I have a bit more weight on, and when that means an extra squeeze of Nutrigel on my dinner I am extra happy.


We love you, Inigo. Lots of purrs,
Lishy the 14 month old kitten who wouldn't make it to 6 months :)

Daisy said...

I am so glad to hear good news for Inigo! I can't recall if we mentioned this before, but have you tried freeze-dried chicken liver treats? We are so wild for them, we will gobble down anything with the crumbles from the jar sprinkled on top.

The Monkeys said...

We are SO happy that your sweet Inigo is doing better and we're purring and thinking positive thoughts so that he adjusts well and keeps eating! We love you, Inigo!

Catmama said...

Wonderful news! Go Inigo! Dear little furry heart you have made everyone so happy with your continued recovery. Keep going sweet baby. Hugs, head bumps and purrs to you!

Mr. Pip said...

This is wonderful news! We will continue to send lots of purrs and prayers your way. My feline sister Rosie is so happy, she's talking about jumping on the next plane - and making one of her famous tuna/catnip casseroles for Inigo. Rumbles could have some, too!

Your pal, Pip

We are thrilled and so happy to hear that Inigo is doing better, and that adjusting his meds may be the solution! I actually have tears of joy in my eyes as I type this, so I can only imagine how pleased you all are.

We will continue to purr and pray. Please eat lots of food, Inigo ... you need to put on some weight, sweet boy.

(((Love, purrs and headbonks)))

Mariodacat said...

We're continuing to say prayers, I have paws crossed and I'm purring like crazy. Enjoy and celebrate his good days - live for the moment. We'll pray too dat he starts eating a little better. HUGs and love from M and me.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Well, there is nothing like the power of purrs, paws, and prayers - we hope you continue to see progress. Inigo, please eat well and put some of that weight you need on. That is a never-ending battle for us here with Phantom too. Thanks for the update - it makes us feel better.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Cathy Keisha said...

Bet you're glad you didn't listen to the Vet that said to put him down and listened to us—and your heart—instead. YAY Inigo! You can do it, boy! Do as I say and not as I do and take all your meds and eat all your food. I want to see you run in next year's NYC Marathon! xoxo

ABBY said...

We have just caught up on the posts we have missed and are so relieved you are doing better again. We are purring our strongest purrs for you to continue to improve and to put on some weight.
