So far, very good on his even further reduced steroids (two mornings on, one morning off, vice every morning) and his twice a week Epogen shots for Anemia. He has been acting pretty much "normal" thru all of this since day one, but on the new regimine, his energe level has visably increased. Understand, he still needs his multiple power naps as all cats do. Still a "little" on pins and needles that the dizziness will come back, but it hasn't shown itself since we started him in steroids back in Feb 06. Playing with the steroid dosage always makes me nervous... But, good so far.

I find I am smart occasionally. After his shot, he gets catnip and forgets all about the shot... It is the only time I give him catnip so he associates the shot with good. Works almost as well as a grape lollipop at the doctor's office or a sticker at the dentist's for we simple humans... I still oogle the stickers as I leave my dentist's office, but they never offer. Sigh.
