Most of these cats are rescued ferals from the groups living in my yard or the neighborhood block. Some live with us inside - the elderly ones who need more attention and medication. The rest have their own house with a screen porch for warm weather (we cover it with plastic in cold seasons) and a nice snuggly indoor area for winter.There are 19 of us cats so scroll down to make sure you meet them all. We have black cats, black tortoiseshell, gray tabbies, brown tabbies, tuxedo blue, and all white cats! Some are more tame than others but they all have a safe forever home with us.
Chica ia looking pretty good, walking around and getting up on the chair or bed herself but still not eating on her own. She is just eating a few squirts of the watery food every few hours. She passed another clump of furball yesterday but is getting dehydrated again. I am giving her water and electrolytes but may take her in to get sub c fluids today but...
When the ER vet gave her fluids on Thursday she was vomiting and moaning and looked very uncomfrotable after for a few hours - usually she perks up and is better. When I got to my vet they tried to take blood to do bloodwork but her veins collapsed and they got nothing. Without knowing what is going on, I am hestistant to give her fluids if they are going to make her sicker like last time. I looked up online and the websites for CRF say that vomiting after fluids was a sign of the wrong fluids used. She may need added minerals like calcium or potassium.
I don't know what to do? Has anyone had this happen to them? I just worry I will make her feel worse and at her age hate to do that to her. Monday I will check in with her regular vet - should I wait until Monday on the fluids? Thanks for all your support and help.
He was Joey and Minnie's litter mate. He developed cancer while still living outdoors so I brought him inside and cared for him until he passed away in 2006. He loved all the attention he got. He was a very shy boy but handsome.
