A Tribute for Old Ginger

From Eslina’s blog: http://eslina.multiply.com/journal/item/85/A_Tribute_for_Old_Ginger


Pawprints in my Heart

My lap is too too empty, and cold
the soft resting head no longer there to warm it.
No comfort to be found, no furry body to stroke
my quiet companion gone….

My heart is broken, there are no other words
to write it – this empty ache, this space
you filled, loving always, never judging…
My friend has left, and my hands, arms, all
helpless to stop it.

Little one, fly free, where the fields are green
and filled with friends gone before. I will
carry you always, your pawprints ever beating,
running joyously to greet me whenever I call
and memory stirs in my heart…

Old Ginger

Old Ginger is growing thiner and weaker. He has stopped eating on his own. I try to make him comfortable but he likes to curl up on a small stool in the corner most of the time.

Brought Old Ginger to the vet

Brought Old Ginger and Sophus to the vet this morning. No taxi in sight so I took the bus with the 2 carriers…pushing my luck 😉 The bus drivers on this route are ok or maybe they are just tired of me blocking their lane with my bicycle…

The vet thinks that it may be early kidney disease and prescribed Fortekor, Clavulox and something to improve appetite and also recommended k/d diet. I took one can just to try it out. It costs about the same as Avoderm but actually the latter has better ingredients and no by-products.

Old Ginger is still dehydrated and today he refused to eat the fish…will have to force-feed him again.

Old Ginger not well

Old Ginger has hardly eaten anything for the past 4 days. He would still come and look at the food and just drink a lot of water. He has become very thin again. Today he slept on the seat of a motorcycle, usually he would sleep under the cars. His former caregiver called yesterday to ask about him.

Strange that he ate so well after the operation and then after release again poor appetite and now worse…

Please send metta and prayers for Old Ginger…and also for Gemma, the sweet little boy at Phyllis’ cattery who will need a miracle to recover.
