Purrkins

We are doing great here we modified Purrkins litter box last night.

Heres the before and after we just cut out the entry more and it did the trick!

Purrkins didn’t need his mom to help him go pee today he got in and out on his own no problem yeah!

I tried posting a video, I haven’t figured that out yet it’s too big?  Will figure that out another day.

He is getting his hop like walk down, and I’m impressed!  Again Yeah Purrkins!

I am massaging and doing acupressure on him. I started that on them when they were kitties. They love it I am self-taught with a Tallgrass  Acupressure book and chart. I’m no expert just do the best I can, and they approve!

Purrkins hasn’t had a problem with appetite. He happily gulps his food down. He hasn’t been interested in his water until this morning. He drank this afternoon also.

Purrkins wants out of this room already. He protested at the door scratching away like he has both his front paws!

Sorry, buddy we are stuck in here for a bit.

I set up our old phone with the presence app.(Its a free iPhone app) It’s a motion-activated camera app we use it for the litter box usually. Saxton has IBD and constipation we have to keep a close eye on things. We get alerts when the camera detects motion and then it videos.

Yes, I get poop and pee alerts and videos sent to my phone lol. That’s a good thing for us!

We should have done that years ago. If you don’t know whats coming out of your kitties, it’s good to know! It will save you a trip to the ER!  It can be insurance and life-saving! We keep a daily journal of who has done what.

Since Mark went back to work I set the camera up and on when Purrkins is sleeping soundly,  I can leave the room with no worries, I will get an alert when he moves, and I can be right back in.

We have one issue today he wants to scratch at his neck where it is shaved right above the incision. The onesie entirely covers the incision, but I worry he is still going to catch his incision with his claws.

I put a moist washcloth on it, and he still wants to itch the area. I put the soft cone on him today after he would listen to my no scratching. That seemed to make him understand the no itch again. I can’t see whats itchy other then its shaved there.

Pretty quiet day today he is most active in the early morning, he is up on and off thru the day.

Sleeping more than usual and that’s good! I want him to heal.

    Sounds like he is doing so very, very well!

    And I have had a very good laugh at poop and pee alerts on your phone!

    Hope each day is better and better for handsome puss, Purrkins.

      We think he is and each day he amazes us with something new. We can keep looking forward now.
      So glad that decision and that dreaded day is passed and we move on!
      Lol yes on poop and pee alerts. Not everyone wants to see whats on my phone.😉
