NO! I did nawt know that about Tigs! Oh, poor baby! We've got a few of those stoopie vets around here, too. And in Maine, too! Kittehs gits tongue cancer? I did nawt kno dat eether! My Moose had squamous cell ca in his jaw. I thought he had an abscessed toofs. Dat was perty awful too. I miss him. I miss all my babies! xox
And I know he could hear you. I was driving to the ER vet at night trying to save Binks from a catastrophic thrombosis from heart disease that I did not know he had. I was a mess. And every snail driver was on the road and I had to drive a long way to get there. Binks had slid off the seat next to me and I couldn't see him, it was so dark. I couldn't hear anything from him, and I finally called BINKS! And he answered me. I finally just hauled him up to me, and I could tell he couldn't breat right so I gave him mouth to nose resuscitation right up til I got to the door of the place. They came running out to greet me and all I could say was "I can't lose him!" He was as limp as a rag. Within a minute the doc came out and said he heard a few heartbeats then that was it. I wouldn't let them cover him totally up in the bag, so they left his little face out. I slept with him all night. I never told anybody that. That was 5 yrs ago and I miss him like it was yesterday. xox
Awwww! BooBoo is purrin wiff mr.skwerl! She sez 'tanks!' Yeh, I tend to block stuff out, or maybe nawt block, but I has too much feelings to remember ebry detail and da order fings went in sumtimes, aifinkso. xooxx
HUGZ for sharing Patches' passing. Oh, I cry, wail, skreem, etc. when my kittehs, or anybody else's or any kitteh crosses the rainbow bridge. But when the time comes, I just get totally involved. Its something we all HAVE to deal with sooner or later, and so I try to give my babies comfort and love at their time of leaving. It's the least I can do for all the love and entertainment they gave me all their life. It's the honorable thing to do and they deserve that coz taking care of them was our God-given job. Their love for us was a gift. 3 of my kittehs died in my arms, the other 3 I had to be put to sleep. I just waited til the last possible minute. While it bothered me a lot when Patches left, I feel that grief is something that should be felt to its fullest extent. How could anyone shut that out? We mourn over that which we love. If someone doesn't want to hear about it, that to me is just juvenile! Srry. Dats just me venting. Cant helps it coz all da babycats deezerve to held in dat esteem. HUGZ!
Hmmmm. Also, I was told to give up caffeine and since then I just haven't felt right. But a couple of days ago I decided to have a cup of tea in the morning to see if it would help. Maybe it is the caffeine coming back!!! : )
I know! Life can be very unfair, but I believe that the fact that God gave her life, He wanted her like He wanted us. None of our bodies will survive, but our spirits live on. Too bad I'm used to this body and not that acquainted with the other side. But of course we all feel that way. It's scarey.And it's sad for us that are left behind. If BooBoo gets to a point of really suffering with no hope of surviving, I'll do the humane thing. But right now she's pretty comfy, in no pain, breathing good, and her heart rate is wonderful! I'll always hope until there is no hope. Know what I mean? HUGZ! xox
Yeah, BooBoo has the trifecta of CRF, hyperthyroid, and heart disease. Her kidney values are really good, but over the last week-end she got real sick. Her temp was 105, her pupils were dilated (she's blind now), she's been walking in circles, she's very discombobulated, and her right front arm to paw was non-functioning. I got her little leg back to working by doing physical therapy on her. Last week, her bloodcount was at 22%, and I thought she was getting better, but today her count was at 19%. We've got her on all these medications to knock whatever virus she had, and now she's on atenolol for her heart. She's not in failure, but because of the anemia it was beating too fast and this med will help her circulation. Right now it's just wait and see. I just DON'T KNOW!! I HATE this! xox
