Thank you once more for the outpouring of love and purrs, from kitties and woofies that we have never met to loyal and loved old friends from the CB. We have felt the power of your love and our dear old girl is hanging in.
I am unable to return all the wishes right now, because life has been a bit out of hand this year, but I am reading each one and thinking about the good suggestions such as steaming and nasal drops.
Our girl is still not purring and she seems to be retreating a bit more… looking for that place where she can be comfortable and undisturbed by the other kitties. One thing is that even with both of us beans having to be away at work, Iris, our beautiful calico, has become her old Auntie’s nursemaid. Iris kisses her ears and sleeps near her. And we can see what a comfort she is to our blind girl.
She is still eating and drinking, but the cough and the snorting continues despite the antibiotics. We may take her back in on Saturday to see if we should run another test on her thyroid, since despite eating she is losing weight.
The vets seemed to think that this weight loss may be caused by a tumor. It’s so hard not to want her to be with us always yet keeping in mind the limitations on a little bitty kitty’s frail body. We have to remember that she is 93 in “people” years… a wonderful life span indeed.
In the meantime, I promise to update as I can (hard to do from work and I am working two jobs now). Bless you all for your generous love, from our kitty and human family to yours.
