Andy has requested I only shoot photos from his 'good side' for now and wonders why they only shaved half his thigh LOL The patch they shaved makes for quite the hairdo, doesn't it? We'll find out how his appetite is tonight, and hope his wrist doesn't make his leg swell up again. Me and the boy have to get back to having fun again.

On another note: Ollie has completely come out of his shell and become very playful. LOVES playing fetch and is very affectionate. He and Katie are getting along famously. He often sleeps with his head on her back when they nap.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support and prayers

Wishing Andy a healthy appetite tonight and that his fur will grow back fast or might have to get him a hair piece

Aww, maybe you can take a picture of Ollie and Katie cuddling together?
Looks like a permanent family member to me, can't separate the snugglers

Andy

Wishing Andy a healthy appetite tonight and it would be great to see a pic of Ollie and Katie together! Do you think maybe Andy's loss of appetite has to do with him going off of prednisone?

I'll get some pics of Katie and Ollie together. We always considered Katie tiny, but Ollie's quite a bit smaller than she is. All the way up to 8 whole pounds now! He was probably a day or two at most from being dead when we found him. Nothing but bones and matted fur.

It could be. I hadn't considered that until Dr. Wang said it. Just as likely are the antibiotics inflaming his GI, Gapabentin, etc. I just don't know. We're going to resume 10 or 20mgs of Pred tomorrow if Andy eats.

I'm cooking chicken and rice for Andy right now. Since he'll only get 1/2 a cup at a time every hour or two, I won't know how he's eating until tomorrow ... and will report back

Sending "hearty appetite" wishes to Andy! As for his less-than-fashionable haircut, Finn's belly hair is now about an inch and a half long from an abdominal ultrasound shave in September (!!!), so Andy may want some fleece jammies if it gets too cold in your neck of the woods

Andy is always in my thoughts. He's the 2nd luckiest boy in the world right now. Ollie is the first. I can't believe how he found you & how wonderfully it has worked out.

Thank you so much

Ollie and Andy are both snoozing down here in the 'man cave'. Ollie in the other easy chair, and Andy on a pad. My wife tells me that every time I leave Ollie cries until I get back. Aw. He's fitting right in and adjusting more and more every day. He's so small, but putting on weight little by little. When we first took him to the vet he was only 6 lbs 9 oz. Now he's 8 lbs 2 oz. I didn't expect him to be such a little lovey dovey boy based on how he wanted to bite my hand off when we finally caught him December 21st. He may be small, but he's brave. Not a hint of aggression towards anyone around here. He's quite affectionate, though still just a tad standoffish at times ... when he isn't jumping in someone's lap. I'll begin training him in the next few days. Hopefully he won't be like Katie, who we call 'untrainable' LOL She's cute as a button and really funny, but she marches to her own drummer

Andy ate about half a cup of rice and chicken and lost interest after that. I did get a Prednisone and Cerenia (for nausea) in him, then we went for a short walk across the street. Since his left wrist seems to be relatively OK (though still warmer to the touch than the right) I think I'll take him out to the lake for a short walkabout. At this point I'm trying anything I can to help his mood. Poor boy's been through the ringer these past several weeks.
