thank you all for your kind and nice words, they were heartwarming to us. and lo, all the good energy did help, our kitty is still alive.

so we got Poesie back from the vet. her blood results were weird.
several factors were way out of the normal ranges but the vet had never seen that specific combination. he said he also felt lumps in her guts, and that some of the blood factors might indicate tumors. he put her on a drip so she got hydrated again. I am now force feeding her with hills prescription diet with a syringe (without the needle of course) and boy does she hate it when I do that!. the vet says she may perk a bit up, but to not expect more than a few days, maybe weeks, and who knows a few months if we're lucky. she sleeps most of the day, but she does purr when we give her nice kitty rubs and massages. we are monitoring her to see if she's got too much pain. if so we will call the vet to come and euthanize her here at home.

well i'm glad that you didn't have to do anything too rushed. i'm relieved that she's okay, if only for now, and that you can better prepare yourselves to say goodbye when the time does come. she is very lucky to have you as her person, and to get the love you give! :)

Woh, your cat was sick? I missed something.
I'm very sorry to hear this. Enjoy the time you still have with her.

The poor girl :( But she's got lots of love, and you all have time to prepare, to say goodbye, to love. Give her some extra scratches from me.

I think it is wonderful the vet would come to your home to put her to sleep, rather than making you bring her in. Bringing them in is one of the hardest things you can do.....

I'm so glad that she's home, and that you have some extra time.

It so hard when things like this are rushed.

We are all thinking of each of you now. You are never far from my thoughts. And I share your heartache, furbabies are such sweet things.

*hugs*
