I've been robbed!

Hello, Officer?  I'd like to report a crime.  I've been robbed.  I'm the victim of a theft.  THEY STOLE MA BLOODS!  Pardon the kitty speak, Sir, but I'm a little emotional at the mo.  Like I said, THEY STOLE MA BLOODS!  MOUSES!

It's true.  They stole my blood.  And I know exactly who did it, too.  It was my doctor.  She took an entire vial and the worst part was, Peep #1 was right there at the time, facilitating the crime.  She was aiding and abetting, for sure.  Again I must say, MOUSES!

What's that Peepers?  It was for my own good, you say?  REALLY?  Okay...  FINE.  Guess you might actually be right about that.  You might actually be right about somethin' this one and only time.  Enjoy bein' right, Peepers.  It doesn't happen very often.  Enjoy it while it lasts.  MOUSES!

Truth be told, I hadn't been feelin' my best in the last little while.  In the last few months, I had lost some weight.  Perhaps a little more than I should.

At first, it was kind of a good thing that I lost weight.  I was never overly heavy but I do have a bit of arthritis in my hips so losin' a little was good in a way.  But then I lost more and Peep #1 felt that she could feel a bit too much of my shoulder and hip bones to her likin'.  I had a good tum on me but she was worried 'bout the rest.

There were a couple other things goin' on, too, but I won't go into a lot of detail 'bout those on account of this here bein' a family friendly blog and no one really wants to hear too much 'bout icky stuff comin' out of either end and certainly not both.  MOUSES!

But I will say that the peep said I was "lookin' a little down in the mouth."  Yup, that's just what she said.  Not quite sure what she meant though 'cause my mouth was - and still is - exactly where it should be and no one was lookin' down it or anythin'.  Weird sayin' if you ask me.  MOUSES!

Okay, enough with the mouses.

Anywho...  Peep #1 made an appointment for me with my doctor and last Thursday, she took me in to the hospital.  That's when it happened.  That's when they stole my blood.  MOU....  Um, never mind.

So the vial of my blood was whisked off into another room where they began runnin' a battery of tests.  Luckily for them, we had had no major power outages in recent months so there were lots of batteries to be found.

They were checkin' for three things. They were checkin' for thyroid problems, diabetes and my kidney function.  Peep #1 had her fingers crossed that the tests would discover what was goin' on with my health and that whatever it was, was treatable. She was crossin' a lot of fingers, I think, and perhaps some toes, too. She was hopin' and prayin' that I would be A-okay.

Well my doctor called later that day sayin' there was good news.  She said the blood tests had done the ol' trick. She did not, however, mention if I would be gettin' my blood back.  I'm thinkin' it might be tucked away somewhere in an evidence room or somethin' on account of it bein' stolen property and all.   MOUSES!

Well you knew I'd start sayin' mouses again sooner or later, right?  Just so happens it turned out to be sooner rather than later.  Such is life.  MOUSES!

Anywho...  The good news is that the problem is with my thyroid and it's pretty easy to solve.  One little pink pill, once a day, should do the trick.  I have to go back again in a month for a re-check. I'm thinkin' they're gonna wanna steal more of my blood.  Awww....  MOUSES!

But I'm super good with pills so takin' one little ol' pill, daily, will be easy peasy for me.  Peep #1 just pops it in my mouth and I swallow.  I'm a real trooper, for sure.

The peep knows better than to try to trick me when it comes to takin' pills.  Once she tried givin' me a deworming pill in the same way she gives 'em to the rest of my fur-fam.  For them, they all get the pill wrapped in a pill pocket which is then hidden in some of the fanciest of the feasts, given straight up.  Works for them but for me?  NO WAY.  She tried that ol' trick on me and what did she find? She found one little dewormin' pill lyin' in the middle of a plate.  That's right, I ate the fancy food and the pill pocket and spat that ol' pill right back out.  I'm quite talented like that, you see.

Good thing it isn't my sister, Constance, who has to take the daily pills.  Connie doesn't do pills.  It's a fact.  Oh sure, you might get the first one in her but there will never be a second.  Gotta catch her first and she has some excellent hidin' spots.  Not even I know where they all are.  MOUSES!

And I just wanna point out that the little pink pills I'll be takin' are pink.  Yes, PINK.  They're not to be confused with those little blue ones that ol' spammer, Mr. Anonymous Spam, keeps tryin' to sell me.  Imagine tryin' to sell a neutered kitty, like me, little blue pills.  MOUSES!

I suppose I really should call the police back up and cancel that APB on my missin' blood, huh? 'Cause it's not really missin', after all.  Yeah, perhaps I should do that sometime.

But I can tell you somethin' that is missin'.  An hour.  We're all missin' an hour around here.  Not sure if it was actually stolen, though.  I think that maybe it's just lost.  Can you put out an APB on a missin' hour if it's only lost?

But do we actually know that that missin' hour is just lost?  Do we know it's not a victim of foul play?  And do we know if there are any chickens involved?  MOUSES!

Perhaps that missin' hour simply crossed the road with a chicken and couldn't find its way back.  And if so, why?  WHY?  And perhaps a better question to ask would be, did they look both ways before crossin'?  No one ever asks that question, you see.  No one but me.

So many questions, so little time.  A whole hour less of time for investigatin' this matter at paw.  I had best get on that right away.  I'll let you know the minute I find that missin' hour.  I'm thinkin' I should find it by the end of October, for sure.  MOUSES!

  2. Well, we're sorry they stole your blood, but at least you got something useful out of it. We hope this pills takes care of the problems. PS: Mom said to tell you that even though I, Tobers, do NOT like Pill Pockets, she still uses them. It coats the pill since it's oily stuff and helps it slide down more easily.

  8. Nissy, we are sorry you had that blood stealing business happen, but of all the possibilities, the thyroid one is probably the best, especially if you are such a good pill taker. Once the thyroid issue was pilled, our Audrey chubbied right up and the troubles with her digestion went away too. Her fur even got nice again. Mom told us that letting a thyroid stay overactive is not good for the kitty's heart, so good heart health will be a bonus for you.
    Regarding that hour, I betcha a dollar that it suddenly shows back up in October, without a single bit of advance warning.

  12. Hey Nissy, glad all worked out but your missing blood. Thyroid is at least controllable. As far as the hour missing and maybe gone with a chicken, do you know why the chicken crossed the road,,, huh do ya? It crossed the road to get to the other side and to show the racoons, squirrels and skunks that it can be done safely.
    Have you ever seen a dead chicken on the road. Groooooan

  15. I am happy to hear it is just your thyroid. In the last couple months, 2 of my mancats got the same diagnosis. I am wondering why this is happening to all you cute boys.
    I hope you decide to cooperate and take the pill, if you decide not to, it can be compounded into a gel for your ear.

    1. Oh yes, I'll cooperate. If the peep tries to trick me by hidin' the pill, I won't take it. But if she treats me with respect and just pops it down my throat, I'm okay with that. I'm a very good pill taker, for sure. purrs

  20. So glad that your stolen blood showed your peeps what the problem was and that's it's very manageable too! Do you know about the transdermal version of Tapazole? It's a cream that gets rubbed into your ear and is SO much easier than pilling everyday.

  21. Nissy! You and I are now "Thyroid Brothers" !!! Not just that, but Flynn is one too and who knows how many others are!! We need a badge....a badge of course - of bravery - of needing our bloods stolen frequently from now on to keep tabs on our thyroid thingie. My pill is white and not pink and I'm NOT good about taking pills - Mom has to smash it into powder then sneak it to me in strawberry (or cherry...yum) yogurt. POWER TO THE THYROID GANG!

  22. Oh Nissy! There must be a conspiracy. You go to your doctor and they steal your blood. My doctor stole three of my teeth. And I didn't even get them back to put under my cushion for the tooth fairy. At least you get a supply of pink pills to make up for the stolen blood. And a chance to steal some blood from one of your peeps when they give you those pills. Hugs.
