We're gearing up -- both mentally and financially -- for Hamilton's radioactive iodine shot to treat his hyperthyroid condition. It's happening on Sept. 10 at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, part of the MSPCA. I wish we didn't have to hospitalize him for 10 days or more, but I feel really good about the decision to give him the treatment. Although he's gained weight and is looking like a "regular cat" again on the daily meds, he hates taking them. He runs away as soon as he sees the dropper, and I can tell he doesn't feel totally good on the meds. He's more subdued then he used to be and he sleeps more.
We'll be happy to have our playful kitty back and healthy again when it's all over!
