Update

An open letter to all of our friends from "Da Momee:"

We are so thankful for the outpouring of love for our sweetest girl. We so want to believe that she can pull out of this... but we also know the reality. The biggest struggle is knowing the right time: not before, in case she can recover—and not too late, in case she is suffering silently.

I have to believe that our vets and Auntie Stinkie herself will help guide us through this.

Last night we were encouraged by the fact that she ate all of her food, did not seem so hot to touch, drank water, and slept on my lap.

But what hurts and scares me is that she does not purr and has lost her famous "Stinkie Smile."

Please continue to purr, because I am lost without hope and courage.

And thank you so much, for your generosity of spirit.

We love you all.

We are still sending over lots of purrs and prayers for Auntie Stinkie. Eating and drinking are a good sign - we think maybe she just isn't ready to be purring and smiling right now - sometimes that takes a bit longer. Sending you lots of hugs!
