Two bits of news

Inigo was out on the porch in his Kondo (I don't let Rumbles out with him because I don't want him to accidentally hurt Inigo) 

Rumbles was at the glass door, mewing at his brother and looking so forlorn... Inigo was so concerned about him! He mewed back, and tried to find a way through the mesh to get to him to comfort him! I could have cried, it was the sweetest thing how they couldn't stand to be apart. I took Inigo out and put him inside by Rumbles, and they were both happy again. I'll have to figure out a way they can both go out at the same time.

The second bit of news... Inigo ATE!!! Like normal, everyday eating!!! I'd made up two dishes, one for Rumbles and one for Inigo, expecting that Inigo wouldn't want his and I'd have to try and convince him to eat... the second the bowls hit the floor there were two pussycats NOMing!!

I'm so happy he's eaten... but another part of me is saying he could be eating because he's on an extremely low dose of his diuretic, which is controlling his plural effusion... which means he could end up with another chest full of fluid... but for now I'm just happy to see my boys happy.

Our hearts are so happy to hear the news that Inigo ate! And thanks for sharing the bit of tenderness and sweetness between these two handsome brofurs! We're not going to stop purring for Inigo until he is all better!

They really do love each other, don't they. And nomming is good. Glad to hear Inigo ate. *purrs*

Raymond and Busby said...

We're happy to hear the boys got to spend some time together and that Inigo ate. It has to be stressful for Rumbles too. Would he really play too rough with Inigo if they were both allowed outside together? Maybe you can just supervise them and if the play gets too rough you can take one of them inside? We are so glad you had a good day togehter!

Simba said...

It is lovely to hear both bits of news. Such purring going on here for there being a happy medium dose on that diuretic, one that leaves Inigo with enough appetite and also keeps his fluid at bay.

It's getting too cold here now for much being outside for me. I bet Inigo and Rumbles would like my tent thingie more than I do.

@Isagold said...

Yippee for eating!!

Sweet nosepats for you all.

AFSS said...

So glad Inigo started eating again. Sending more healing purrs. It is sweet how much Inigo & Rumbles love each other and being together.

Marg said...

Gosh that sure is good news. Maybe the lower dose of medicine will still keep the fluids away. Miracles do happen and Inigo deserves a miracle. That was such a great story about the two brothers calling each other.
Sure glad he is also eating. It is always so exciting when they start eating. I know how you feel.
We are still keeping our paws crossed and sending tons of purrs and prayers. Take care and big hugs.

Meow said...

So happy that Inigo is eating. We are still sad for Rumblepurr, Rumblemum and Rumbledad. We know you are trying so hard to help him. Sweet Rumbles must be sad to be separated from his brother, even for a little while. Are they very rough together outside? We are praying for you all. Peace and hugs.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

YAY!!! Eating is a good thing. It must have been so sweet, albeit sad, to see the two trying to get to each other. We think animals understand when their furiend is hurting and that Rumbles would be gentle with Inigo. We are all hoping you have a quiet and happy weekend.

Wissen here lil Inigo, you keep eating, ya hear me?
- Nimbus

If you have to keep him low and have to drain his lungs now and then, than do it, at least for now, so that he can regain his strength. Figure out where to go after that. Maybe his lung won't fill up again!

Sorry Rumbles, I got to do this... *pawhugs and nose kisses* sweet furiend!
