Namaste friends & followers of The Purrfect Pad. Sherri-Ellen here! I think this is the most I have been on our blog! A few nights ago, a poem started to form in my mind….so I started scribbling & this is the result:
…………………..MY LITTLE MYSTERY…………………..
I Share my Life
with this funny furry fellow
whose silly & hyper;
anything but mellow!
He is with me each & every day,
yet what he thinks or feels,
sometimes I can’t really say!
He’s really quite a mystery to me,
yet his being here
makes me most happy.
If only I could ‘unlock’ his mind,
then I’d figure out about his kind!
Siddhartha Henry you’re a puzzling mystery to me,
I hope with me you will always “BE’!!!

Love your LadyMum Sherri-Ellen T-D.
Namaste Efurryone…… Mee iss happy yur all here. LadyMum wantss to mee-yow to all of youss’ so take it away LadyMum!
Hello Everyone & to all the Vet people who took it upon themselves to read our blog & report back to Dr. Michael & show him the blog! Are you proud of yourselves? Now my special needs cat has NO Vet care & will be out of Vet food & probiotic by the end of the month! Thanks for that! This is now the 3rd Vet we have gone thru in almost 2 years of having Siddhartha Henry. Why am I having all this trouble with him when I was with the same Vet for 20 years with Nylablue & Mingflower???? Dr. Dave took care of my girls & he was my Hero. Remember a month after I had brought Siddhartha Henry to him the proverbial ‘sh* t hit the fan’ & I was told to leave. And you all KNOW how much that broke my heart. To this day he will not reply to emails or speak to me. Then I went to the LadyVet who confirmed the Panleukopenia & then gave him FRV-CP injection that exacerbated the Bowel Syndrome I suspected Siddhartha Henry had & made him sick as if he had the Panleuk again. This then led to his Aggressive behavior!! When I took him back for assessment remember she did not even touch him & refused to assist me. Threw me out & threw Mumma Mary-Ellen out of the practice. So on to the next Vet I went. Dr. Ian helped a lot but would not discuss medicating Siddhartha Henry for his Hyperactivity/Aggression. Fair enough. So I went to his partner in the practice Dr. Michael only to be told the ‘littul Purrince’ is a threat to me & will not get better. No meds given; just told to euathanize him! And I blogged about it>>>THIS IS MY BLOG! So if you do not like what I posted; walk away. And do not use my words against me. I now have no Vet & what will happen if no one else accepts us? No Rx foods & meds & that will make Siddhartha Henry very sick. What the HELL do you Vets’ think you are doing? Picking & choosing who you treat. I am furious that all you see is a ‘barn’ cat when you look at my cat! Purrince Siddhartha Henry was BORN in a barn & he has NOT been there since he was 6 weeks old! He IS NOT feral!! So my cat is not a ‘FERAL BARN’ cat!!! He is a Burmese cat with special needs. PERIOD!!! So to all our faithful friends & followers I apologize for this diatribe! I thank you all for the love, support & suggestions you’ve given & already I understand Siddhartha Henry better. To all the ‘trolls’ & others who feel it is THEIR right to snoop may I suggest you go away??? From now on I will not approve any comment from a stranger. In fact, I doubt I will be blogging for a while now. And for your information I did NOT Slander anyone nor can I be sued for Libel. I have checked into that!!! Small comfort to me tho’. I now have to find YET ANOTHER Vet who will take Siddhartha Henry into their practice. I am now VERY close to the breaking point; hope all of you thru’ out Grey County are happy!!!! I won’t recommend any of you except Dr. Dave again. And I pray maybe he will see this blog & take pity on us. Nothing has been right since I had to leave his practice…… I remain Sherri-Ellen aka LadyMum.

As fur mee, mee thott fingss were goin well since thee ‘TeeVee’ eppysode……mee has been a furry good boy; honest!! Yesturday (Wednesday) LadyMum put mee innto thee carrier an Aunty Sheila tooked us to thee Vet practice to meet a new Vet. Mee was xcited to meet a new Vet. His name iss Docktur Michael an mee liked him. Hee reminded mee of Docktur Dave…..gentull an quiet an thor-oh when hee xamined mee. Good newss iss mee weighss 10.8 lbss an mee has purrfect teeth an gumss!! Woo Hoo!!! No Ginnygivitis! An hee compleeminted LadyMum sayin shee has tooked furabuluss care of mee an mee iss fizzically healthy. An then; then hee said bad newss…. An mee cannot even begin to mee-yow about this so mee will let LadyMum tell you what happened ok???
Hi Everyone! LadyMum here. I have no idea how to tell you what happened. I myself, am still in shock!! Before we went to the new Vet I wrote out a 1 1/2 page history of Siddhartha Henry’s behaviours since I adopted him also noting the treatments he has received during the past 22 months. Dr. Michael says my report was very concise & factual. Guess 2 years of learning how to do Medical Research is paying off. He answered my questions; well the ones I remembered to write down. The Panleukopenia DIDN’T alter Siddhartha Henry’s behavior; however him being removed so young from his Birth Mum & being so sick DID alter him. This is no one’s fault. Unfortunately he was not socialized properly & by the time I adopted him a lot of his behaviors (or lack thereof) where already ‘set’. The FRV-CP injection DID stir things up not only physically but mentally. After a detailed discussion, Dr. Michael said Siddhartha Henry has Petting Aggression, Play Aggression & Idiopathic Aggression. His recommendation was to put Siddhartha Henry to sleep as he is a ‘threat’ to my safety! I was like ‘say it isn’t so’!!! He did not recommend him being rehomed because Siddhartha Henry is ‘too unstable’ (like I would even think of doing THAT), nor to return to the farm as he would be a threat to Mary-Ellen & her family & 4 leggeds. Dr. Michael said he would look for a medication that ‘might’ calm Siddhartha Henry down but he really did not have any ideas other than Bach’s & Feliway which I am already using……… I have not heard back from him. I came home with the ‘Littul Purrince’ & am still in shock!! I was also told that Siddhartha Henry could ‘go off’ at any time & attack me because of what happened during the TV incident. We are taking things a day at a time. I just do not know what to do…I feel like Siddhartha Henry is on ‘Death Row’ & I feel like the Executioner….I ADORE him so much & can’t bear the thought that I would have to put him to sleep. I can deal with a physically sick cat or dog…I can be rational & logic; this scenario makes no sense to me……any suggestions are gratefully received with my deepest thanks.
Mee-you can you believe this deer furendss?? Mee iss still reelin frum what Docktur Michael suggested. All mee can say iss mee iss scared an worried an sad fur LadyMum. This iss such a mess!!! An all mee can say iss:Say it issn’t so LadyMum!!!! What do wee do deer furendss??? **sighss deeplee**….. May thee Eye of Buudha Kat bee upon all of youss’ Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=
Namaste an humbull greetinss frum Thee Purrfect Pad. Mee has ALOT to share with all of youss’ an it could bee uppysettin…..

There were Trailer Park Boyss werdss an mee heart sunk. “Goin back to the farm…” was herd threw thee building mee iss sure! An the other bad fing was mee did not land on thee bed butt flew across it an hit thee wall. Mee went UTB an waited fur LadyMum to calm down. Shee cried an cried an mee just waited inn thee dark; feelin scared as you can emagin. Mee was NOT hert fizzically butt mee was so worried mee wood not last another day with LadyMum. It sure was a pawfull nite fur BOTH of us an Sanyo did sirvive mee “assault”!!! Mee doess NOT know why mee did that to Sanyo. Do any of youss’ have any ideass??
Monday Mumma Mary-Ellen came to us an was goin to buy LadyMum a NEW new TeeVee till shee was told Sanyo survived! LadyMum spent all mornin phonin efurrywhere lookin fur a Tee Vee Lock Bar an could not find one so shee decided on Velcro Padss an Strapss frum Home Depot. So Mumma Mary-Ellen gave LadyMum sum $money$ fur these fingss an Aunty Ruth was kind enuff to take LadyMum to thee store that day.

Hi Everyone: As most of you know, I receive Lidocaine injections 4 times a year. I have between 8-11 injections per visit. This is only 1% Xylocaine/Lidocaine so it is a VERY small dosage. I had a lot of ‘flare-ups’ after the March injections & the June injections. Sine last December Dr. M. has been saying I could not have them for much longer due to side effects such as, no proven long term efficacy with Lidocaine. And of course, there I was having so much trouble walking (using walker) & in so much pain. So when I went to see Dr. M. this past Thursday I was in dire straits wondering what was going on. Long story short; Dr. M. LIED to me & gave me Saline Solution instead of Lidocaine WITHOUT my Knowledge or Permission!!!! And guess what? He can legally do that because of a Medical loophole I knew NOTHING about. Let me say, I suspect I was given Saline in March also because I have been in such pain since then….he admitted to June only. He says he has read ‘articles’ revoking the use of Lidocaine as a pain deterrent but had nothing to show me. He knows I was in Medical profession so there was NO reason to pull a fast one on me. He then said there ‘could be’ scar tissue at injection sites & I really let into him. I was reduced to tears realizing he had lied right to my face after 11+ years of being my Specialist. I almost stormed out….thankfully REASON prevailed & I stood my ground. After 15-20 minutes of heated discussion & tears (on both sides); Dr. M. agreed to give me 8 Lidocaine injections. I asked him for proof so that he did not pull a ‘fast one’ again. Once I was changed into a gown, he returned with the needle & this:So at least I had some visible proof he was using the correct medication. And I had an epiphany once the 8 injections were completed. When I get Lidocaine there is far LESS pain. D’UH, of course because it is a numbing agent so once it starts going into my body it numbs the injection site; whereas the Saline Solution burns & stings & hurts even after the needle is withdrawn!!! How this escaped me I do not know. I had become complacent; believing what Dr. M. was saying about the lack of efficacy. I spoke with my ‘Bestie’ yesterday who is a Medical person & she told me there is a Medical-Legal loophole that Doctors can use to cover up what they are doing. And then I had the 2nd epiphany!!! Until this year Dr. M. always asked me if I wanted ‘more Lidocaine injections’. He said he has to ask because of medical-legal reasons. I always agreed. Thinking back, I realized that in March & June he asked me “Do you want more injections?” See the difference?? He did not say “Lidocaine injections” & of course I assumed he was going to give me Lidocaine so when I said “Yes” he then could legally substitute Saline Solution for Lidocaine & get away with it! I am utterly & totally devastated & dejected. There is no one else locally who can do the injections. I am too unwell to travel 3 1/2 hours each way for treatment in London. I came home Thursday in quite a state complete with high BP & raging headache. I spent most of after noon crying. I had a complete emotional meltdown in public that night. Except for walking the ‘Littul Purrince’; I am staying inside my place. I just can not deal with anymore deception from anyone. I have an appointment in December & I am going back with an Ultimatum> I will agree to only having Lidocaine injections 3 times a year (every 4 months) with the agreement that Dr. M. gives me ONLY Lidocaine those 3 times PLUS that day he MUST give me Lidocaine to make up for the June Saline Solution. I think this is a fair compromise. Why do I feel I am playing “Blackjack” with my life?? And there is nothing I can do about it. If he says he would only do Lidocaine twice a year I will have to take that….but I know it will not be enough. And I explained that w/out Lidocaine I end up taking Codeine Phosphate 30 mgs. like they are TicTacs….you think he would have understood the importance & necessity of the Lidocaine. So that my friends is what happened. If it were not for Siddhartha Henry I would have done something drastic & negative to myself. He kept me from anything bad. It is always my cats that save me from Life’s worst betrayals….OK back to Siddhartha Henry…..here “Duders”:
Fankss LadyMum!! Mee iss gonna take good care of you an wee get thru this mess together!!! Thee POTP iss upon you LadyMum all wayss….
