35388update not good for stray
- Dec 4 10:06 PMHi all,
Well here is the update on the stray that had diarrhea, well I took
him to the vet, and he ended up having leukemia and mild anemia.
I'm just heart broken... I feel so bad, but I just can't risk letting
him in the house, I let him in for a few day, when I knew better, that
I shouldn't have until he was tested, and sure as S**T he had my
worst fear, I can't believe I did this...I can't believe, now I have
to worry about my other two cats. sighhhh
I know that he has lived outdoors, good knows how long, I know he has
somewhere else to sleep when it's cold.. I know last year I use to see
him go in my nighbors attic, so maybe he's doing it again, haven't
caught where he is going.
I get so attch...but he just melts in your arms, that is what makes
it even harder, is the why he loves to be loved. I just have no way
to give him his own room.
I hate to see him go, but I can find a home for him, w/other cat
w/leukemia.. and someone who can care for him 24/7, I work, and he
is the hardest pet that I have ever had to give meds too. I was given
something for his diarrhea, he just lock that jaw shut..I don't even
know if it' helping, since I don't know where he goes.
Now I wish, it would have been Hyper-T then this... at least that
could have been treated. The vet thinks he's about 12-15 yrs old,
and the teeth from one side have all been removed. Make me wonder
how they were removed, cause I think it has to do w/why he will not
let me touch his mouth area, other wise, and can touch him anywhere.
Even months ago, this cat was dirty, So I grabbed him, mind you I
didn't touch him back then, anyway, and gave him a bath, he wasn't
to bad, didn't like the water, but like the shampoo part. I think he
just like the fact he was being touched.
The last to night when i got home I sat out on the chair on the porch
and held him, and let him rub on me, told him i was sorry, but I'm
doing what I can for him. He make me itchy, and bump on my lip..
some cats do that to me. Then I wash off after being done holding
Thank all for let me vent, I care for all cats, but this time, I just
can't risk my other too, all I can do at this point is feed him like
I have, and give him love, which he didn't get from me before. See
this cat would show up abt 1130pm at night, when I would wake up to
give baby his heart pills, so I would slide a plates of Baby's can
food he didn't eat, so I never had contact w/the cat, plus it was late
and back to bed, the cat would only come late, late at night. I did
everything to keep my cats safe from the strays outside, even more so
when Baby was alive.
