Thanks for asking Ruth! We're not out of the woods yet. The experiments with different food and hypo-allergenic food didn't make a difference, the one thing I found out is that cheap food makes the diarrhea worse. Dido has used prednizone for six days now, and as expected he gains a little weight but the diarrhea doesn't stop, even if it's a little better. I'll speak to the vet next week, perhaps we'll find the next step.

The most important thing for me is that Dido doesn't suffer and can lead his own life and when it turns out that it's only seven years, I'll accept that.

Plinius, let us know how the food allergy tests went.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 2, 2016 at 3:54pm

Chris, I haven't had experience with food allergies in animals, but I have had lots of practice with the scientific method. That is the best way to track how he responds to different foods. 

A whole new season to play around with plant varieties. We have hot weather for spring this week. The trees revealed their beautiful colors and patterns. We expect a freezing frost tonight or this week and there go the apricots, cherries, and pears. 

Grinning Cat, I enjoy the cat with no gravity effect. It takes a minute. Are we getting acclimated to living in space with no gravity? 

The High Frontier: Human Colonies in Space: Apogee Books Space Seri...

"O'Neill's idea of pursuing an inexhaustible energy supply (solar power in space) and endless room to expand remains tantalizingly attractive. The science has only gotten easier, and the moral imperative has only become more pronounced, with the planet's resources ever steadily squeezed and the recent knowledge that a mass-extinction event on Earth is nearly inevitable. (O'Neill calls the High Frontier the only chance to make human life--perhaps all life in the universe--"unkillable.") TheHigh Frontier is as exciting a read as it ever was, and six new chapters provide context for the advances made in the 25 years since O'Neill's original manifesto. But perhaps the best addition to this printing is the chance to see and hear the soft-spoken physicist himself, in more than an hour of MPEG video included on the CD-ROM."

Yikes! I forgot how to gravity (black-and-white cat sitting comfortably on the side of an armchair and not falling off, as if gravity were pulling to the left instead of down)"At least you still know how to cat, right?"

No experience with cat food allergies, Plinius. Sorry about Dido.

Comment by Plinius on March 27, 2016 at 1:10am

More ideas! It's possible that Dido suffers from food intolerance - it would match his attacks of diarrhea. So I'm setting up a programme for him: hypoallergenic kibbles and one kind of other food to start with. In the first place I want him to get his strenght back and at least a kilo of the lost weight. Daily notes on food, well-being and stools.

Has anyone got experience with things like these?

Comment by Plinius on March 24, 2016 at 12:08am

Blue bells! Thanks!

This week I'll start in my roof garden, people gave me packets of seeds and I can't wait to see things growing! And that backup of course...

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 23, 2016 at 6:19pm

Spring flowers for Chris. Take just a moment to imagine a walk in the flowers; rest, relax, recuperate!

Comment by Plinius on March 23, 2016 at 2:30pm

You know about backups, Joan - ;-) - next week, when I'm not so busy.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 23, 2016 at 1:07pm

Loving care can do wonders; I hope you find a treatment that works, even if you don't have a diagnosis. 

I hope this week is a good one for you. 

Chris, do you run backups on your computer?
