Faline, my kitty, is not well.
Apparently she didn't eat or drink the whole weekend we were away, nor slept. They gave her something to help rehydrate her today, but she's terribly weak. She won't eat yet (but I got her to drink some tuna water), she IS drinking... but she's so wobbly. She can't seem to see right, and she falls over if she tries to walk.
We left her with the VETS, for god sakes. Why didn't they call us, or do something?
I'm sitting beside her now, on my kitchen floor. She's finally sleeping on a blanket we laid out, since the floor is cold and she keeps getting herself wet with the water dish. I'm watching over as long as I can, then it's my mom's turn. Benefit of a nocturnal household.
I feel weak and sick. She's 21... I know the odds. I just... she's my cat.
I really want her to be okay.
poor kittums :(
My stinky cat is sending kitten vibes her way.
i'm so sorry, honey.
when my cat passed away, i was heartbroken.
i'm glad you get to be with her, though.
though, with cats you never know.
she could wake up tomorrow and be her normal self again.
i really hope that's the case.
Oh, god. I'd love to give you advice on this, but my input would only make you sad. :( That is just...exactly the scenario the night Shadow died.
If I could say anything, it would be that maybe she just caught something while she was at the vet's. If it were me, though, just because I've been through this situation with bad results, I'd be freaking out and checking her into an emergency animal hospital. The one we brought Shadow to was so much better than my regular vet. My vet thought it was just a cold, but the emergency vet knew it was kidney failure the moment he saw her, and we could have prevented it if we had brought her to him sooner.
Anyway, so CAT MAKES DEPRESSING SITUATIONS MORE DEPRESSING WOOT! I hope it's just a cold, bb. :(
For how old she is, taking her in may literally be too much stress. We're taking care of her at home. If it's sickness, she will get over it here. If not... I want her comfortable and happy.
Also, I'll be up and online all night if you need to talk. Except for the next 10 minutes, because I'm going to caffinate myself until I pass out. So maybe I won't be online. IDK, but if you need to talk, I'll be around. :)
Thank you. I may need this.
I am properly caffinated and absolutely insane, so if you need anything, feel free to scream at me, or twitter me, or hit me up on AIM. Or anything else that'll help.
I hope she pulls through. *hug*
I'm so sorry =( I hope she's able to recover, but if this is her time... then take comfort in the fact that she lived a long and happy life and will be able to pass with her loved ones with her. My old kitty-brother Ranger was PTS last summer... I'm here if you need to talk.
:( just be there for her and keep her as comfortable as possible, giving her all the lovings in the world. try to take it easy <3
One of our cats—Megan—two years back was in a situation like this; I discovered her weak and severely dehydrated, stumbling around and looking like she was about to die; she wouldn't eat tuna or drink the water in the can or anything. We took her to the vet, and they gave her some large subcutaneous injection of saline and some antibiotics, and eventually she got better. I really hope your kitty has a recovery like her's. It's definitely good that she's drinking water. She's still fighting, and where there's a fight, there's hope. Being around people will do wonders for her as well. No amount of medicine can match the strength I'm sure Faline is drawing from you and your mom.
I really hope she's okay.
I know you're having a hard time, but maybe this will help. I saw it and thought of you.
...was this in ljsecrets? Haha.
I really want her to be okay.
So say we all. Your presence alone can work wonders when it comes to providing comfort as a friend, to cat or human alike.
As tonight is going... late, I should be at SQ1 closer to 3pm. I'll call when I arrive, and will check messages and such in the morning.
Upon checking, I should be able to arrive by 2:17pm. The rest is as already stated, now and before. But she is doing better, thankfully.
No problem. Just text me BEFORE you leave the house *i say before because I woke up this morning stomach cramps of doom, likely from something I ate last night...bargh!)
I hope she feels better soon!
I'm about to go to bed, I will pray for her.
Aw I'm sorry. You are a good pet owner to do that!
<3 I can't stand seeing my pets in pain, especially cats. I have such a soft spot for them. My thoughts to both you and your kitty.
That's terrible dude. I'm really sad. As you said she is twenty one. The vets probably didn't do anything because they didn't have your permission.
Hey man if it helps you have my sympathies. I hope she does get better.
I'm so sorry, Imario. :'( I hope she gets well. You are taking good care of her.
Awe, I am so sorry. I understand completely.
Oh no :(
Stay with her as long as you can, dear. <3
She's doing.. miraculously better, actually. I'm loathe to say "she's better" because she's still weaker than she was, but she's running around and eating and everything.
That's GREAT! I'm so glad that she's at least up and about.
