Camera Critters

Camera Critters is hosted each Saturday by the lovely Misty.
Be sure you visit!

I haven't posted anything about our little Miss Riley in sometime.
I thought today I'd bring you up-to-date.

Riley was Mr. Rocky's litter mate. If you remember, Rocky died of a sudden heart attack.
On Riley's regular visit to the vet, he spent extra time with her and found a heart murmur.

She had an echocardiogram and has a little thin sided heart that has trouble beating.
It is probably the most difficult of the heart conditions to treat.

Right now she is doing fine. She's on two medications that have to be specially compounded into tuna flavored treats. Believe it or not, she quite enjoys her *treats* twice a day.

Here is the little Miss in the bedroom we call the studio.

We don't know how long we will be blessed with her presence.
She's a little doll we call the Impress!

Happy Critter Day!

Hooray for tuna flavoured (medicated) treats!

Lovely Riley, so glad they found her heart condition and can treat it. Cool about the compounding of the meds as giving a kitty a pill is not an easy task.

My Quasi Boy gets his heart pills in a small creme puff every day.

Riley's fur and her lovely eyes do make her an Impress! I hope the meds work for her. I wonder if the entire litter was affected with heart issues? Hope you and Mr Dragon have a great weekend, Snap!

What a sweet Miss Riley; and isn't it always something? I'm sorry about her *temporary* problem. Is there anything that tuna can't make better ? :O)

Birdwoman said...

She's a beauty and obviously very precious to you. Strange how these animals manage to twine themselves around our hearts.
