Tanner continues to do well. He is eating great and is now proud to be the "Big Lug" once again! He has regained his spot as the largest in the house. This week, he passed Oliver, and now weights 15 lbs 5 oz. Now we don't want his weight to keep trending upwards, but I am happy he is eating well, and gaining. We all know how quickly they can drop when sickness occurs.
Tanner enjoys playing in the floor at night. He, Oliver and I have a routine now and they both seem to enjoy the time together.
Tanner also enjoys a good catnip toy and can often be found washing one or more of them!
This nip nanner and green catnip pillow are his favorites. He also has a green pickle he enjoys.
Tanner also does a good job washing his own body, although he does tend to over groom some areas. Here's a quick video of Tan washing. I've moved around so you can still see his shaved and saggy belly, and notice on his hips/back legs you can see some thin spots in his fur.
Tanner and I would like to ask for some purrs. I leave to go back to Kenya in 7 weeks. Tanner still needs his potassium twice a day, but not everyone can give him these huge pills. I have ordered some powder to see if he will eat it in his canned food. Please send good thoughts that he will eat the food with the meds in it! Otherwise, he may have to be boarded while I am gone.
