AgaThor will have his vengeance!

Hey, AgaThor devotees!

AgaThor’s digestive issues worsened in mid and late-March, but he’s a bit better this month so far. We’ve had to put him on a completely liquid diet, which includes a combination of mostly KMR (Kitten Milk Replacement) with some Science Diet A/D and vegetables. As you can imagine, he lost a couple of pounds, but is still a healthy weight at this time. Yes, we realize he is way to old for KMR, but it seems to be better for his stomach. We are continuing to monitor him and take him to the vet if there is a problem. I am happy to report that AgaThor worked his charms on his archenemy while at the vet and now everyone at the vet absolutely loves him. The EVIL VETERINARIAN has now seen the light and joined him in his struggle for good. So, worry not, folks. He still has his mojo. He is still in VERY good spirits and is increasingly testing boundaries with his alpha male personality. We’ve come to realize his paralysis extends a little further into his body than just his back limbs. This a bit of a blessing in disguise because it means that, for the most part, his digestive issues haven’t bothered him.

I only have two pictures for you today, sorry. I’ve been getting AgaThor’s vacation home up to snuff. HE HAS HIGH STANDARDS!

And…yes, those are my favorite house socks.

Lessons learned since we’ve had AgaThor: Bathing cats is hard…and sometimes dangerous.

Happy 1st Birthday, AgaThor!!!

Happy 1st Birthday to my special little man! Who? No, not Sheriff Eric. AgaThor the Super Kitten, of course! I can’t believe we rescued him two weeks shy of a year ago. He’s grown into the alpha male that I always knew he’d become. He goes around trying to boss the older cats around and has developed those trademark alpha male jowls. Here is to you, birthday boy!

I’m sorry it has been a while since the last blog post. I’ve been in the process of adjusting to my new job and buying a home, which I will officially receive the keys to next week! AgaThor has had some medical issues, mainly with his intestines and we are still working on several solutions with Aggie’s veterinarian to correct the problem. But, the poor guy has been to the vet several times over the last two months. Hopefully, we find a solution for him soon. We have yet to come to a decision about neutering him, due to the possible complications. It is a hard decision.

He says he’s very excited to get a vacation home for his birthday, even if it is a few weeks late. He’s already making plans for the vacation home’s décor and drawing me sketches of the type of cat climbing tree that he wants. He also told me he wants a fish tank, but I won’t put any poor fish through dealing with him and my two girls.

He had a nice meal for his birthday and is now lounging on his throne. Let’s take a look back at AgaThor’s first year through pictures. There are three new ones at the bottom!

Happy Birthday, AgaThor!!!

AgaThor’s Rockin’ February Begins

Hey, guys. AgaThor is counting down to his birthday in March. He’ll be one year old and he’s already working on his birthday list. He’s thinking of getting a tattoo because he thinks it will make him look hardcore. All superheroes need to look hardcore, right? I told him that his diaper (and the smell coming from it) would likely scare away even the most evil of villains. He wasn’t super happy with that answer.

Anyway, a little update. A couple of weeks ago, AgaThor had some health issues that required numerous visits to the veterinarians. So, once again, he was pitted against his arch-enemy The Evil Veterinarian. The vet suggested the possibility that he has a progressing neurological disorder and may lose additional bodily control. We began to express his bladder because it seemed he didn’t always have control of when he urinates. He was also having bowel movement problems, so he is no longer eating ANY hard food and we have to add a lot of water and a little bit of pumpkin to all of his wet food.

AgaThor is not very pleased that I’m posting this update: “Gosh, mom. Stop writing incredibly embarrassing stuff about me on the internet. No one is going to take my superhero status seriously.”

We are happy to report that he has improved and hasn’t required a visit to The Evil Veterinarian in a week. Crossing our fingers that it was just a temporary problem.  AgaThor’s bottom end is now even a darker shade of yellow/tan because of his diaper, despite our washings. He is SO embarrassed that he said that all future photos should really focus on his upper half. I told him that at least on some occasions, we’d need to include the diaper in the photo. After all, it’s part of the reason that he has a fan base. He then cursed the gods for giving him both white fur and the inability to use his rear legs while also making him a superhero. His life is so hard, guys!

Lastly, I’d like to apologize that the superhero cape is not yet complete. I’m working two jobs right now and look at houses to buy, so I’m behind on non-essential duties. AgaThor just gave me a nasty look and said, “Getting a superhero his or her cape IS ESSENTIAL!” I’m aiming for late February or early March for the cape. But, worry not, friends, a cape is forthcoming!

Ok, now to the good stuff – PICTURES!
