Feeling Helpless

I’ve been meaning to post but I’ve had so much going on that I haven’t managed to get back into the swing of it.  I really shouldn’t take the time with my final paper to write.  But I’ve been sad this week over my sick kitty. I’ve had to watch her crouched with a look of suffering and sometimes, like this morning, drool coming from her mouth.  I’m afraid the antibiotic we’re giving her is not working and that at the vet tomorrow morning we’ll be faced with a decision we dread.  I’m not ready to say good-bye to Tao, but I can’t bear to see her suffer.  We have three other kitties to love, but each one is special.  My grandmother is quoted as saying that she would never get another animal when hers died, because it was too painful to lose them.  She always did get another of course.

  1. Thanks. Maybe there will be a spark of hope tomorrow. Just doesn’t seem too likely when she sits in front of her food, instead of eating it. But then she seemed to perk up a little, wanting me to pet her. If only she could tell me what’s going on.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your furkid…I am sending lots of healing energy and gentle Reiki for the both of you.

    Please keep us updated won’t you?

    Hugs Mary

  3. Thanks, Mary! The vet saw a little improvement so we see how she does for the next 10 days.
