- I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has written sending
support and prayers and healing for Sweetie in all the hubbub of the
past few days. I'll eventually get around to writing back to everyone
privately, but wanted to say thank you now, since I don't know when
I'll be able to write back to everyone.
Sweetie's doing better yesterday and today, ate well and did her
"rounds" around the house...so we're still having good days too.
I may not be posting for Sweetie anymore, until I have to post when
she's decided to go, to let you all know about it and say thank you
for trying to help us. I'll just check the archives for things if I
need to know something. I'm sure there's a lot there that can help us.
The fallout from my previous post regarding the pts emails I was
getting, just seemed to make people fight with each other and that's
not what I intended. I just wanted the senders of those pts emails to
not send them anymore.
Thank you everyone who have been there for us through Sweetie's
problems. I'm very grateful for the help from all of you.
hugs and healing to you and your furkids,
Carol FritzyAngel and Sweetie

- Thank you to those who posted a reply. Yesterday I had a very
productive phone consult. with a holistic vet in CT. who came well
recommended. He gave me some suggestions and was very encouraging.

- I just wanted to thank you all for your advice and thoughts. We are unable to afford to go to the specialist this week as we had hoped since I have just been out of work for two weeks, but she has an appointment on the 23. We're just going for a consult first then will decide what testing and procedures will be done. I had to do this because I can't get off work and they only do regular appointments until noon. I'm very lucky they had a consult appointment available. This means that for any testing, my husband will have to go with her, and that will be hard, but at least i can be there for as much as the decision making process as possible.

A bird in the bush....HURTS!

- Lisa (and others!),
Wow - this is a great group. I have already received several
messages from other members welcoming me and giving me some advice.
I appreciate it all. This is such a difficult thing to go through.
So many mixed emotions and questions in my mind. I am trying not to
obsess about her condition by checking in on her constantly, counting
her resp rate every 5 minutes, and wondering if she is walking weird
or acting strangely at all (granted - it's only been a few days since
her diagnosis!). She is resting comfortably now and I will attempt
to focus on something else.
I will look into the diet and supplements that have been
recommended. I have another appt with the cardiologist this Friday
to check her blood again (I go to the vet school at the University of
Florida) and will ask more questions.
I am just trying to take one day (more like one minute...) at a time
right now. I know that I can't love her any more than I already do -
like we all do.
In reading everyone's stories, I realized that our cats are pretty
lucky to have such loving human animals in their lives.
- Hi, I want to thank everyone who sent me their condolences for the passing of my Caleb. I was able to pick up his ashes today and that is somewhat comforting having him home again. We are putting together a photo collage to remember him. We really miss him but with our two girls, the pain is getting less and less each day. My husband and I have even spoke of one day adopting another birman. It is really unfortunate though that so many cat breeds have so many health issues. We were just saying last night how wonderful and loving our boy was, that like other cats, he didnot deserve to have such a debilitating body. He was such a special boy and showed us in so many ways. We especially miss being able to cuddle with him, as we often did and called him our little baby bear. He was particularly attached to my husband. And you have to understand that his attachment bordered on obsession. Well, we joked about it that way. My husband is a very very loud snorer. This didn't bother Caleb. He'd lie on my husband's stomach and fall asleep. In fact, I'd often walk into the bedroom and find the two of them sleeping and snoring together. They were quite the pair. I hope one day we can open our home to another special boy and have more special moments like we did with our boy Caleb. Thank you again to everyone who passed along kind words, stories and advice on getting past this difficult time. It was an enormous help and I greatly appreciate it. Take care of yourself and your kitties extra special during this holiday weekend. Cynthia
