My kitty :(

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Some of you probably saw my status yesterday, but Baby's results came back, and he has cancer :( I'm so devastated. He's doing okay now, he's eating a little, drinking his kitty milk with his antibiotics, so for right now he's comfortable. Eventually I'm sure we'll have to put him down, but I don't think it'll be anytime soon. As long as he's taking his antibiotics he should be okay for awhile. Thanks for all of the responses. I'm sorry I haven't been able to get back to everyone, but I do appreciate all of your kind words.

Edit: What is really sweet though, is how cuddly Baby is now. For years he wouldn't even let you pick him up without him attacking you, and now he curls up on your lap and goes right to sleep. I think he's trying to make up for all those years he was mean, haha. It's his way of saying, "I really do love you, you know."

    so sorry to hear about your cat :( That is horrible but the good news is he has time. It's better to have a longer goodbye process I think than not having the chance to get one at all. I hope he gets to feeling better!

I am SO very sorry about this sad news!!! I have four cats, and I adore them to the core of my being. The bond and love I have for them is far beyond what words can convey. All my empathy and sympathy to you during this difficult time. I also have one that is "end of life" now. We don't think he will be with us much longer -- praying to get through the holidays with him. We are spoiling him EXTRA rotten, trying to make every single day special for him and just soak up his love like a sponge.

I hope your time with Baby is longer, and that you enjoy your lap time and cuddling. Every moment is that much more precious when you know for sure time may be short.
I loved the pic you posted, she is absolutely beautiful!!

You both are in my thoughts and prayers!!

    Oh! I'm teary eyed. I'm so sorry. My kitty is getting up there (13 or 14 years) and I will be devastated when I lose her.
I'm sure your kitty is trying to give you as much love as possible while there is time emoticon
