Ups and downs

Weak and dehydrated… just gave him another sub-q at 2am. Mouth ulcers and blood in his urine… started him on antibiotics. Caring for a CRF cat has been described as an Emotional Rollercoaster!

Beany is also not too good…. Nushi, Billy Boy and Stitches have mouth ulcers again. Billy has also enlarged lymph nodes… and is on antibiotics now.

Update on Rocky & Beany

Rocky gave me another scare last week! He was resting and then suddenly sat up and started bleeding quite heavily from his mouth… fresh red blood and there were also some blood cloths. Luckily he had no difficulty breathing and the bleeding stopped after a while. He has lost much weight but lately improving a little.

Beany also lost much weight… and poor appetite.

Started them both on Slippery Elm Bark two days ago. It seems to help with the nausea. Both need sub-q almost every day now. At a time Rocky even needed twice daily because very dehydrated.

Wish I could do more for them and hope for the wisdom to know when not to prolong their suffering!

It was touch-and-go

Dehydrated even though given sub-q twice a day, not eating nor drinking, crying when touched and very lethargic. Vet gave antibiotics and painkiller and said I should consider PTS if no improvement in a few days time.

Now he is slowly improving… started eating and drinking. Hopefully he can pull through! Be strong Rocky!

Choices

Beany

Choices

I knew I shouldn’t and couldn’t …

But how could I not take you in?

Now I am awake at 3am

Because I have no heart to cage you or Darly for the night

You are afraid of Darly… and rightly so!

Wet the bed twice because you didn’t dare go to the litter-box.

How can I keep you safe?

So many fights…so may fighters!

Somehow I took in all the “bad boys?… sigh!

But to me they are the same… don’t love them any less!

You were also one of them, used to bully One-Eye Jack

And even bite the people who feed you

Now you let me carry you and inject fluids under your skin

Your appetite has improved and you put on some weight

You are running and playing at times when you feel safe…

You probably have not much time left…

How I wish I could keep you safe from bullies and happy!

But then Darly also deserves a home after all he went through…

though I had briefly considered returning him to the street.. .

Rocky has poor appetite and lost weight…dislikes the k/d diet now.

He is still looking for trouble but no longer winning the fights.

Meanwhile another 2 community cats with terminal illness… thankfully other caregivers took them in!

I am of no use anymore….

Might try this on R & B… as they always get restless before getting enough fluid in.
