Heavy Heart

Hello all,

    I am writing you today with a heavy heart. Junior is very ill and I'm devastated. It all started on Saturday afternoon with him just sleeping all the time and barely eating. Then Sunday it got worse and he was very wobbly when he walked (which he rarely did). I took him to the vet and told me the possible worst case scenario and yet he said he could be wrong. As the testing and overnight hospitalization was too much I opted for an IV drip with antibiotics. I noticed a change in him (for the better) when we got home. He started to walk more stable and he wanted food! He is still eating today and is less wobbly so I'm hopeful. He still sleeps a lot but I guess that's a good thing. I'm pretty upset and have been really down as I feel totally helpless. I know some people would just say "oh well, so is life" but I'm not one of those people. I need to do everything I can so that IF the time comes, I know I tried my best. Right now he needs lots of prayers and good vibes, and I know I can count on you guys for all that..and more:)

I'll keep you updated but I may not be around the 'sphere that much.

Thank you and love you guys!!

Melissa,

I have 11 kitties at the moment and a handful of "strays" that come to my door. One, Fred Astaire, looks a lot like Junior. I will include Junior in my list of kitties that I asked to kept protected and safe when I say my prays. Kitties are very resourceful and they never truly leave our hearts even though they might not always be able to be by our sides.

So sorry to hear about that. Kittens are so fragile.

Eating is a good sign and I am wishing little Junior strength to get through it.
