Happy Birthday to my sweet Tanner! You were the baby in the family for 11 years, and now you are the middle boy. You've accepted your role as big brother with ease, and I know you love your baby!
I want to keep things positive on his birthday, but I need to ask for some purrs for Tanner. Last week, he stopped eating for just one day, and didn't look right. He wasn't moving around a lot and just acted like he felt terrible. I made an appointment for the next morning and we went to the vet, his regular vet was not there, so we had to see someone new. He had eaten a touch of breakfast and seemed to be doing a bit better though. His overall exam was unremarkable, but his blood work showed he is presenting with non-regenerative anemia. His body is not making red blood cells like it should be. Right now, we are not sure of the cause, but over the weekend, he still looks terrible, is sleeping a lot, not moving around a ton, and generally acts like he feels bad. He is eating pretty normally, but not acting right. Oliver is going tomorrow morning for blood work, and Tanner will be tagging along to see his regular vet. I've stopped researching online potential causes, and will wait to speak with her. Some purrs for something simple would be greatly appreciated!
