It's Her LIVER, OMG !

Friday, April 05, 2013

I had been wanting a cat for a long time. I had been ill, dealing with shocking news in 2009. I needed some comfort and joy. My husband said reluctantly I could get a cat. I searched all over for a kitten but I couldn't find one that fit. Finally I quit looking. I felt in time I would be provided with a cat that both my husband and I could love, one that he would approve of. I felt like If I looked for one on my own it wouldn't be accepted.

When I first met her she was so affectionate, tiny, shy, quiet and very much alone. She was abandoned by her mom who used to live across the street from me. She was left alone without food or water. The lady had small children who threw stones and sticks at her, kicking her tiny body. Now they were gone and she was all alone needing a new MOM and DAD !!!

She jumped up on a table in her old carport and stood up on her hind legs and literally hugged me. Then she rubbed her face all over mine. It was true love. I told her if she wanted to come home with me she would need to convince my husband that she loved him. He wasn't a cat lover.

Well she understood what I was saying. She followed me across the street. Normally she was a very shy, timid kitty. She walked up to my husband and rubbed all over him. He was grinning as he and cats don't get along. She twisted his heart around her claw. She even came inside the house with us without freaking out. Since she was all alone we ran out to the grocery store to get some much needed food. She ate with gusto and sat down with us on the front steps, singing us a loving song. She was claiming us !!! emoticon

In the morning my husband got up went to the bathroom. Normally this is uneventful, but the house was empty as I was painting it getting it ready to rent out as I had moved to his house. Well he FARTED several times. emoticon

Because the house was empty, the sound bounced on the walls. It was LOUD. Our little angel was outside sleeping under the window, in the cold waiting for us. emoticon We didn't know she was out there or we would of let her in. She loved us so much she waited outside faithfully for her humans to wake up.

She cried and Cried loudly when she heard the farting. My husband made his cup of coffee and went to sit outside with her. From then on they were inseparable.

It was love at first fart. emoticon emoticon

My kitty is ill, still in the hospital. The vet says while she shows no sign of infection, her liver enzymes are elevated. The vet says her liver is acting up. OMG !!!

My baby is sick. My kitty is like a child to me. She is a companion, she understands me like an angel. Honestly she knows when I need more kitty affection, when I am sick, or sad she is always there for me. She fetches like a dog, she listens for me when I trip on my toes and squeak, she follows me around to make sure I am safe.

The vet says the liver can regenerate and heal. I still don't know much other than she is doing a bit better. He is hoping she will poo today to see how she is doing. She is eating and drinking and her high temperature is gone. He isn't sure if she will be able to come home today.

He says she is on antibiotics, SAM-E, and Steroids. The vet says she will need to be put on a special diet as the diet usually causes liver disease. WoW, that says so much for little friskies, purina cat food, and other we have used.

Her MOM and Dad are missing her. My arms ache to hold her. How I love petting her and listing her sing to me.

Than you everyone for your prayers. Please keep praying. From what I read online once a kitty has liver issues they can pop up off and on and has the potential to be fatal.

My kitty and I are meant to be together !!! Sending her xoxoxoxo.

    When my "Mr. Wilkes" was sick after his strokes and we had to have him "put down" it was so hard, but he was about 16, so he had had a great life, but we still miss him everyday as he made us laugh so much. My husband just brought home a cat he found up the street and she's so skinny, but a Hemi Siamese and really pretty, so I'm feeding her outside. She's just a young cat, and really friendly.
I do hope ur cat gets well. emoticon

    So glad she'll be home soon. I'm so thankful for you that she has every possibility of recovering. That's horrible that her food might have caused it.

A few years ago I had a guinea pig that my son loved dearly, and my husband had sprayed the window with windex, not near the piggie but just in the same room and it destroyed his liver. Our little plumpy died. The point is, just "normal" stuff we have and use in our homes are toxic, poisoning us and killing family members smaller than us. We shouldn't HAVE to be so careful, we shouldn't have to worry that the stuff they are selling us in the stores is killing us and our believed pets. But we do.

    LOL! You are fantastic! lol!
So sorry about kitty! :( I hope she is better soon.
I'm not sure where you live but if you have a Tractor Supply Co. near you, you should go there to look at their cat food.
i found them on accident one day a few years ago. They have dog and cat food for cheaper than even Walmart. All the name brands and their own brands. I noticed Ally's (our dog) shedding was a lot less when she's on a better food so I've been making sure to feed her an all natural food with no corn or gluten. Well that can get pricey. Thankfully I found TSC. They really are cheaper and worth the trip. Plus it's a neat store! lol! Makes you feel like you stepped into a small farm town. You can also get your horse feed there too. lol!
Feel better kitty!!

    WOW! You got LOTS of advice. But, yes, food is SO important. Mine are on Hills Science Diet Feline Dissolution. My blind kitty, who was a stray til I found him last Nov, has chronic bladder problems(among other problems) so I feed it to all of them(I have 4).

I wish you the best with her. What's her name?

    What a sweet story. Isn't amazing how those things go? We had the same thing with our dog. Our son really needed a dog and my husband doesn't allow pets in the house. He didn't want to own one under any circumstances. But our daughter and her husband visited the Humane Society and called us and told us they found THE ONE. We went there and it was love at first sight. He's perfect for us, easy to live with, and he lives IN the house with us. In fact, he sleeps with us almost all the time. My husband reaches over and pets him. Most of all, this dog has made our son's life complete. He's the best medicine. So, I have a good idea how you feel. Sometimes there's that one sweet animal that is like no other. He's like the only dog my husband would ever accept. And he loves this dog. I hope your kitty gets better. Hopefully, it's just hepatitis or something.

My daughter was a vet tech and she's pretty picky about what she feeds her dogs. She told me what to buy and that's what he gets. When her dogs get sick, she cooks them meals on her stove with lamb, rice, peas and stuff like that. Her boxer got cancer of the lining of the blood vessels. She took him to a naturopathic doctor for humans. She administers his regimen faithfully. He was supposed to live two months. It's been 14 months and he's going strong. So, it shows that animals do respond to natural therapies, including acupuncture and herbs. How did she get the idea to take her dog to a naturopathic doctor? She's a close friend of one of the vets she worked for. The vet said, "I'll bet Erika would have a solution for that." And she did. She was willing to see the dog, applied her knowledge to the dog, and it worked. Oh - and he is very old for a boxer. Even without cancer, he has still outlived the boxer life span by at least three years!

There is so much than can be done today with the medicines they have, I'm sure they will be able to regulate her liver enzymes. You may have to change her food & she might be on meds forever, but it will be worth it.
I have a cat with diabetes, which we control with food, and intestinal problems that we have been dealing with for a couple of years. Just changed his food & meds because Vet said it could be part of his pancreas causing the problems. He is also getting B12 shots once a week for a few weeks.
They are our babies, they need us to care for them. Your kitty has found a good home with you, and she will get better. emoticon
