The Ham report - Rumblepurr

So, we've been to the vet, and he suspects allergies, most likely food. He's been noming on some Chicken Temptations when he usually gets seafood flavor, so Rumblemum thinks that might be it.

She's thrown out the Temptations (I'm not supposed to eat them because they cause my acne to flare up) and we're gonna see what happens. Hammy had a shot that should keep him from scratching the area any more than he already has.

Thanks for all the comments yesterday! Rumblemum really appreciated it.

In other news, that Ham now weights 6.82KG - which is 15Lbs... that's almost as big as ME!

Careful with that groomin', Hammy!

Nom nom nom

Ummmm... Hammy? I think you got something in your mouth...

Oh, Hammy, you are SO handsum! 6.82 kg!

Sparkle said...

I am not surprised the vet thought it was allergies - I sort of suspected as much. I just want to say, you two are BIG mancats! Like three-times-my-size mancats! I am less than 6 lbs. Sometimes I am only 5-1/2 lbs.

We didn't realise you had grown so big Hammy - silly us were still thinking of you as "kitten size"!
Rumbles will have to beware now as you'll be able to give him sharp whap if he gets too bossy.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I hope you feel better soon Hammy, those allergies are tough to figure out and are just no fun!

Marg said...

Well Hammy, it looks like you and our Mewmew are in the same boat. She went to the vet yesterday too and has horrible allergies. We tried some grain free food and it didn't work. Hope the shot works for you. You sure are a big boy now. Take care.

Icky allergies. It's funny cuz when I was having suspected allergy problems, they mentioned chicken then too. M tried to buy me grain free kibble, but I turned my nose up at 3 kinds. The more expensive and healthier it is supposed to be, the more I refuse to eat it. She's so frustrated, but I just can't help it if I don't like it.

We're sorry you have allergies! Samson had allergies that gave him bald spots too. The vet also said it was likely a food allergy but it turned out to be (we think) an inhalant allergy. We're pretty sure he was allergic to perfume products (like scented plugins, room spray, etc) because as soon as Mommy got rid of them, he got better and has been better ever since.

Awww sweet Diego!! Seafood only for you! Yay!! Please get better!! Take care

William said...

We sure hope that does it! It's always a bummer when something we like to eat does something itchy to us.

Cat said...

Holy cow Hammy, when did you get so big!!!! We hope you will be better soon :-)

marley said...

I am allergic to NO foods so I can take any excess of your paws....

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I do hope that works. Allergies are not fun at all.

The Whiskeratti said...

You look so comfy... and so very floofy. We're glad the vet was able to help you.

Cathy Keisha said...

15 lbs of manly floof! Whoa! Hope your itchy goes away soon.

Nerissa said...

I think it's mostly fur, myself. I bet you've got at least a couple pounds of it there. purrs

Hammy, we hope you get better so your mom didn't through out Temptations for no reason! You are a very big Mancat!

CCL Wendy said...

Did you ever think Hammy might be allergic to himself? Ham isn't suitable for efurryone's consumption, after all.

I've been hearing quite a bit about those itchies lately. It can't be contagious because you're in Australia and we're all in North America. However, it seems to be a very common problem.

Otherwise, you seem to be quite a big, healthy boy! Just like your big brother.

We missed yesterday's post. Sorry we didn't get to stop by. We hope it is as simple as a reaction to that food. And we also hope the shot will help Hammy a lot.

Hammy, I have allergies too, which means I don't get to eat some stuff that I like. I hope that shot helps you feel less itchy.
