Tortie Friday - Purrs Please

UPDATE
Chica has stopped vomiting and is drinking water on her own but has not eaten. Her vet does not want her to go without eating as it can cause liver issues so we are feeding her broth and baby food with slippery elm in it every couple of hours to help glide things thru. Thank you for all your purrs!



We had a post for Friends Friday but Blogger ate it and we don't feel like writing it again!!!

We could use purrs for our 20 year old Chica who has CRF - she crashed yesterday and I had to go get sub cutaneous fluids  ASAP at a nearby vet.  I can do it but not alone and hubby was at work.  She continued to vomit all night when she would try to use the litter box so I suspect she was constipated too.

Chica in her PTU

Got in to see our vet this morning and she said along with constipation, Chica may have a furball that needs to come out.  She has stopped vomiting and is resting comfortably.  I fed her watery baby food in a syringe and got some furball goo in her too.  Both stayed down.

I need to keep feeding her food, water and furball goo over the weekend and check in with our vet on Monday.  Keep those purrs coming!!!!!  Thanks!!!

We hope Chica is feeling better. Scott says that this is what happened with our Uncle Orlando. He says he regrets holding on until the last minute when he would have rather helped him to the Bridge earlier. He says he never wants to see another cat going through the end-stage of CRF as it is very sad and scary and he wished he had been able to say goodbye in a much more calm and pleasant way. We are sending our purrs.

Old Kitty said...
