I'm Home from the Hospital



I came home from the hospital today - Thursday afternoon. I'm afraid the news from the vet is not good. My blood work is worse today than yesterday. I have liver failure. I am not eating or drinking. I did lick some vanilla ice cream off the Food Lady's fingers tonight, but I cried when they tried to give me some roast chicken. I am not hungry.


I am sitting on my heaty pad and getting lots of love and adoration from my People. They told me about all of your good wishes for me. Thank you.


The Food Lady is putting Lourdes water on me every hour and asking St. Bernadette and St. Francis to help heal me.


The vet says we will know by tomorrow if I have improved. If not, I will be resting, surrounded by all the love I could possibly want. Thank you for being such good friends to me and making my life such a happy one as we all got to know each other. And if I do have to go to the Bridge, please look out for my People, because they will be very, very sad, and they won't have me around to tell them what to do every day.


Purrs and paws to you all, especially my special Gutter Cat, Rocky.

Oh dearest Miss Halloween! I am so glad you are home safe and resting well. There is no better place than home to be when one is under the spell of illness. Mommy tells me that you are very sick and not eating your foodies. I know this is a hard time for your family to try to tempt you to eat...I too am a very light eater and we are about the same age. You are a precious beauty and much loved....please know how much we hope that you rally.
Much love to you from the cozy cottage and Misses Peach

Oh, Halloween. I am so very, very sorry that you are sick and not doing well. Mommy and I are all leaky-eyed. If going to The Bridge is what is best for you, then we hope the journey is an easy and peaceful one, but our hearts will ache for losing you, and ache for your beans for their loss.

Mommy and I are purring and purraying for you . . . St. Francis is my mommy's favorite. She really hopes he helps you, Halloween. You are certainly a special and lovely ladycat.

Miss Halloween, we're glad you are at home with your people, so they can love on you and cuddle you. If you can, please try to eat a little bit - we know it might not taste too good right now.

Dear Halloween. Your face looks relieved just to be home with your humans. Hopefully not eating is just from the stress of being away so long. I've read in other cat's comments for other situations that baby food is easy to eat and easy on the tummy. I know they have chicken flavors and stuff like that. Perhaps yogurt since you liked the icecream?
We are purring and purring and praying for you to feel better and start eating.
We are also purring comforting purrs for your beans. We will always be here for them!

St. Gertrude of Nivelles is a Patron Saint of cats and we asked for her help and support for you as well. purrrrrrrrrs

It’s hard when a pet, which is a beloved member of the family, dies after a few years of being a significant part of your life. I remember how my kid reacted when her pet rabbit died in its rabbit hutch last year. Too bad I never explained to her about the lifespan of rabbit which is 2 to 3 years only. Now I got her a dog for a pet.
