An update.  Our little buddy ain't out of the woods by a long shot, but there has been some improvement in that he can hold up his head enough to drink from a bowl without soaking himself and the floor.  Still force feeding him, we doubled his food intake today in that maybe he can handle it and needs it to boot.  So far so good.

First pic is from the night before the vet. 14lbs down from 22 a month ago.  Yes, his ears are that yellow from the liver failure and his paws and legs are soaked letting his skin color show some.  Second is the day after.  Still a yellow eared kitty but harder to see.  Still can barely keep his head out of the bowl but he's doing better.  Its been like Greg Allman falling asleep in his soup bowl, but all the time.   Had to hold him up and keep him from falling down or over sideways when he walked 5 feet to his bowl this morning.  We ain't giving up and neither is he.

Keep those prayers and thoughts coming, we're still going for the miracle !    {#Hug}

Poor little guy. He looks so tired and sad in that second picture. Here's hoping he gets stronger every day!

And thanks, R.



 
She is. We have many feral cats in our industrial complex so we trapped the pregnant mom, found homes for the kittens (after 6 weeks of nursing) and had mom spayed and released. Interesting how they clip the ear after spaying in case someone else catches her so they know she was spayed.

A new day.  When His Mommy got up, Tobin hears her and did too and came out of his hidey place to say good morning without being called.  Made it twice as far as he has for the past couple of days before his wobbly legs gave out.

We're praying for a miracle.  Keep them thoughts and good vibes coming.

Thanks for the thoughts for Tobin.  He made it through the night and the trip to the vet's.  He has liver failure for sure and maybe lymphoma.  Its a quality of life issue.  Reverse fever of 97 degrees.  No more antibiotics.  He got hydrated, a B12 shot and a cortisone shot, which is his final hope.  If he doesn't respond to the cortisone, its over.  We'll know in 24 to 48 hours.  No pain says the vet, but he is a limp rag and moves about 10 feet and stops, rests and moves on.  He is taking his food by syringe and is actually drinking water on his own again.  Choice of saucer or bowl cuz he has trouble holding his head up.

I called my Mom this morning and asked her to find a spot in the kitty garden for him when his time comes.  All the family cats are planted there for the past 30 or so years.  My Dad used to do it, but now its my turn.

Thanks again for the thoughts.  This is the kind of sad that hurts the most.  There is no love like unconditional love.

Part of my grief in the loss of my cat is how much she had to suffer in the last few hours of her life. She probably just wanted to die somewhere dark and quiet in my closet...and I whisked her to the ER where people poked and prodded and stuck her with needles. At least they gave her pain meds so her last hour could be more comfortable.

 

It kills me that I could have helped her out of her suffering sooner—but was not home to do that. I think she was actually waiting for me, so I could say goodbye.

 

I know people have said not to agonize over all this, but I can't help it. We always want to do our absolute best for the little furbabies who have given us so, so much in their brief lives.

Just focus on the years of unconditional love you two had and rest assured that she feels no differently toward you. 

  
 

Right...thank you so much.

 

I didn't know you were away too when it happened. I can't even bring myself to look at the beautiful pictures of my trip yet...knowing she was home suffering when I was taking them/experiencing them. I guess it just takes time.
