Latte


On November 6th Latte will have lived with us for one full year. He was quite a spunky little kitten and very affectionate. He adored attacking his big brother Chase even though he was so tiny. When Latte was 6 months old I noticed he had a limp in his right hind leg. I assumed it was due to a fall as he liked to do silly things. A trip to the vet confirmed that it was most likey a soft tissue injury as the x-rays looked fairly normal but were kind of fuzzy. Two days later Latte got worse so I called the vet again and this time spoke with my usual vet who had me bring Latte in right away. It seems his femur had fuzz around it and looked "moth eaten". It was thought he may have a fungal infection. That night Latte was very sick and only wanted to sit in my lap. We took him to the hospital where they kept him over night and preformed a bone biopsy the next morning. We had to wait a while for the results but in the mean time Latte was sucessful at removing his sutures three times. He ended up with 2 e-collars. After many tests it was determined that he had a bacterial infection of the femur which was treated by antibiotics for 6 weeks. At the end of that treatment we noticed his head tilted to the side when he walked and he looked dizzy. He had a full neurological exam and was started on yet another antibiotic, this time to treat a protozoal infection. It was either that or an MRI to see if it was a brain tumor. Luckily the treatment worked and he's a happy little guy these days. He adores fuzzy mice and leaping after wand toys. He is loved by everyone and every cat in the house and he snuggles with everyone. While he doesn't like to be picked up or touched unless he wants it, he is still quite a snuggly guy when he wants to be affectionate but mostly enjoys running around the house wreaking havoc with Kaze. --Lauren-- Latte's blog: Latte the Meezer

Due to the fact that not everyone can afford the high prices of the brand name Viagra, manufacturers have created a generic viagra version of it, a copy containing the same ingredients and formula, producing the same effects but having a different look. Generic Viagra online is intended for those who need a cheaper version of Viagra. You can buy viagra online at excellent prices, and you can even find offers and discounts online as well.

Propecia comes in tablet form and should be taken only by men without liver problems. It should be taken regularly and needs to be taken with water - food is optional.

Generic Cialis is a new group of medication which allows adequate sexual stimulation, relaxes the blood vessels of the penis and helps erection.

johnnysmith said...

Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.
