Joan who owned Noggy unfortunately
died suddenly in June 2004 resulting in Noggy coming into the care of
the Croydon Branch of Cats Protection (CPL) on the 3rd July 2004. (Please
see Polly's page for more information about Joan). Noggy was checked over
by the vet and found to be in need of a dental, as a result she lost six
teeth, otherwise she was found to be healthy and judged to be about thirteen
We fostered Noggy for a few months but as she settled in so well we were
able to adopt her. She seemed very happy living with us and I hope Joan
would also have approved.
Soon after Noggy moved in with us we noticed she was losing a little weight
and drinking more, after a visit to the vet she was diagnosed as having
early signs of kidney disease so was put on Fortekor plus a monthly injection
of anabolic steroid and vitamin B12. As this has been found early we were
hoping for a good outcome. In July 2005 we again noticed a loss in weight
and after a blood test she was diagnosed as having hyperthyroidism so
was put on Felimazole.
Sadly in August 2006 she started loosing weight again so her medication
was altered but she continued to loose more weight. In November 2006 she
had to be put on a drip as she became very dehydrated. She came home for
a couple of days but it was soon obvious the outlook was not good for
her so on the 2nd December 2006 she was put to sleep. We have scatter
her ashes on Joan's grave, I am sure they would both have liked this.
All her treatment was paid for by Croydon Cats Protection.
