Chica's Home!


UPDATE - Thurs Am
Chica had a rough night last night with more vomiting foam and crying but we got her pain meds in and she settled down I did have to force feed her.  I called the vet this morning and they had offered her 3 kinds of food each meal and she would eat one but not the same so I did that and she ate on her own this morning.  We will give her a few days to settle in and then we have to take her back to the vet for another blood and urine test next week.  We will just take things one day at a time.  Thank you all for being so supportive.  I am off today and will stop by to visit everyone.  Keep those purrs coming! (Rosa is doing better too.)

I had an out of town doctor appointment this morning and called about Chica as soon as I came home.  I was so excited to be able to go get Chica, I left home without the carrier!  When I went back for it I almost took Minnie with me as she had fallen asleep inside the carrier.  She came out unwillingly and I was off to get my precious Chica.

Chica headed for the litter box with Minnie right behind

Chica will be on antibiotics for 10 days along with a pain med - with sub c fluids twice weekly while she recovers.  Her kidney values are down  from a few days ago which is good. We need to go back next week to check them.  The vet feels like it is mainly a very bad UTI.  Once we are done with the meds, we will see how she feels.  If need be, we may go in for an ultra sound to see if her pancreas is inflamed.

Chica resting while Minnie checks her out.

The vet staff enjoyed her - very perky and vocal today.  She went right for the litter box when we got home and plopped down on the living room floor.  Minnie was there to check her out and I am sure to see if she could still nap in the carrier.  Chica will be tired for a while - this has been quite an ordeal for her.

Thank you all for your purrs, prayers and donations.  Brian's Home and Marg's Pets put up a Chip-in (I posted it on our sidebar) for us to help pay for this hospitalization. Bless you both for this. I am also dealing with Rosa who has a UTI also.  I will be adding more things for sale on my Wildcat Woods Vintage Treasures blog so do check that out regularly.  All donations and sales will go towards care for Chica and the other cats.

I consider myself so fortunate to have such great buddies as you all.  I know this would have been so much harder to go thru without your help. I will be by to visit all of you in the days to come. I will keep everyone updated on Chica's progress.  She is a very spunky tough old lady!

Keep those purrs and prayers coming - Chica is not out of the woods just yet!

We are purring for Chica. So glad she was doing well enough to come home.
There is a specific blood test for feline pancreatitis - fPLI (IDEXX labs). Suggest you join the Yahoo groups - feline CRF (kidney) and feline pancreatitis. Lots of good info and caring people.
