My sissy Pesto (sad news)

I just found out tonight that my sissy Pesto is very sick with diabetic ketoacidosis and likely underlying pancreatitis.  My mom noticed that someone (a kitty) was having "accidents" and figured that Pesto was the most likely suspect so she decided to run some routine blood work. Anyway, as good ol' Murphy (of Murphy's law) would have it, when mom checked on Pesto's results tonight numerous values were way off the scale.  The good thing is that she is not acting as sick as the story of her blood says she should be.  This has come as a complete shock as her blood values were normal (except her thyroid) just a few months ago when she was treated for hyperthyroidism.

Please cross your paws for my sissy...and my mom...

...only two more days...

Between Big Pupi and me, we have 8 legs. That means that you've got 4 pairs of paws crossed just for your sister kitty. Hope she's feeling better!

I am so sorry to hear about Pesto, and I hope that she gets to feeling better soon. Toffee and Riley I am also sorry I have neglected to leave you comments lately cuz mum has been so busy. She said to tell you that she is heading straight to the post office tonight afterwork to send your package and will be mailing it to the work address....I picked out a few other items, plus the secret item that you are not supposed to know about is in there too.
Paw hugs
