Chloe Jo’s Follow-Up


Chloe Jo went for her follow up appointment. She was happy to see her friends at the vet clinic, as she has known them since she was four days old. She crawled right up onto Dr. J., and rolled onto her back for Dr. S. to check her tummy. She then cuddled up to N., one of her favourite technicians, knowing she would get some more attention. Chloe Jo loves to hug and kiss.

After her check-up, they said that Chloe Jo is healing nicely. In fact, the vet told her she did an excellent job in removing her stitches. They said she will be able to wear a bikini with no problem, though I must say that is one thing Chloe Jo has never done…yet.

Chloe Jo’s appetite has returned to normal. She is still a bit irritable, but she is playful, again. Mommy is still her main focus, though. Wherever I am, she wants me to hold her and comfort her. I don’t mind. She has had so many health scares; I am just relieved she has pulled through this, too.

Unfortunately, we don’t yet have the lab work results for the type of stone Chloe Jo had. We cannot put together a treatment plan until we get these results. We can’t make any changes in her diet, or put her on any medications until we know exactly what we are dealing with. So, we wait.

What we do know is that this is genetic. This will no doubt happen again within the next couple of years. Chloe Jo will have to be monitored closely for kidney issues for the rest of her life. We do this with her respiratory issues, so this will now be included in her routine care.

We love Chloe Jo dearly. She is our baby and we will do anything we can to give her a healthy and happy life. Seeing her happy is what it is all about! The unconditional love and affection she gives to us, and everyone who knows her, makes it all worthwhile. 

I will continue to report on her health and progress. As soon as we get the lab results and treatment plan I will post it here. We want to thank everyone for their continued prayers and support. It means a lot to us. Chloe Jo sends hugs and kisses. She would give them to you personally, if she could.

  3. Chloe sure has a great personality and it shows how she's well love and taken care of. Chloe Jo in a bikini, now that's a thought, lol... It's getting a wee bit too cold for a bikini this time of year. Praying that the result comes soon so you can get her on the right feeding program.

    I'm sending loving thoughts. Hugs,
    JB

  9. That is such good news! She is a beautiful cat and her personality sounds wonderful. I wish now I had met her when I was in your area of the world...next time perhaps. I love the fabric basket she is in. I have a book on how to do this but couldn't really figure a good use for a fabric basket - but now I do.

  13. Such a good report for your little girl! I know you are relived that she is healing, regaining her appetite, and doing better at present. I also know you will always be on guard and noting any changes that require vet attention. God sent her to your family because He knew you would be the one who could give her the very best life possible, just as you continue to do!

  21. I'm delighted to hear Chloe Jo is healing well and that she's on the mend. I know this is a relief. Hopefully soon you'll have the results of her labs and will know how to adjust her diet accordingly. Give Chloe Jo a Paw 5 from me and stroke between the ears. :D
