Rusty Update

Rusty's Mom here. We had a rough weekend. Rusty got a couple shots at the vet on Saturday, one a steroid the other an antibiotic. Neither seemed to have really helped. The vet thinks that if he had asthma, the steroid injection should have given him some relief. He has an appointment tomorrow morning for x-rays to see if they can tell what is giving him so much trouble breathing at times. It's really frightening to hear him wheeze and struggle to breathe. I'll let everyone know how tomorrow turns out. Thanks everyone for all your purrs and well wishes.

One of the other cat bloggers had the same issue and they gave him steroids and antibiotics but it turned out to be pneumonia. If I can remember who it was I will let you know. Hope Rusty feels better.
