My Cat

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

My Cat Popokie (means cat in Hawaiian) is 14 yrs. old and will be 15 in May and all of a sudden he could not jump up to get his food or the bed and or the couch, I mean what's going on? This started last Friday and continued to get worse by the day. Sunday he was walking around like he was drunk, would not eat and was not drinking much water! I could hardly wait until 8:30am Monday morning to take him to the vet. Well, not what I thought and I don't think he really knows for sure, he gave him a Cortisone shot in case and it cost $93.00 which I don't care it's my baby however went back today and he still doesn't know for sure, he gave him an IV to prevent dehydration because he still is not eating, also took a blood test and we found out in 10 minutes from the blood test that his kidneys, liver and heart are perfectly fine. Humans pay far more and wait far longer, now I ask you does somebody know something we don't! So Today it cost me $107.00 and no we do not have Insurance for our pets or ourselves. Now, Popokie is walking around with this big saline bulge where the Vet gave him the shot, he looks at both of us as if to say "what have you guys done to me". Please, please animal Jesus or God! help our beloved child (pet).

    My Popokie (Boo) is at the Rainbow Bridge. That is where all our wonderful pet's go. We put him to sleep first as we held and said good bye. Then came the big one(shot)
    & just like that he was gone. I remember saying to our Vet "he's gone? just like that?"

    I really understand part of what you are going though......after my favorite cat, Sandy, had the stroke we did everything we could for him......the vet even gave him hepirin to thin his blood hoping to clear us a clot he had......It was so sad that I think I cried for a couple of days, and it still bothers me 17 years later......when I found him in the morning he was paralyzed from the waist down due to a clot.........we hung on to him for two days at the vet, but he kept going downhill so we had the vet put him to sleep.......I still feel the pain of doing that........And the one I have now is 17 and she is beginning to slow down a lot, and is not eating right and has lost quite a bit of weight.......we are keeping an eye on her, but I think age is catching up with her.......hopefully she will hang on for quite a while yet.......

    I am a cat lover as well, I hope that you find out what is wrong with your cat and that he makes a full recovery from what ever has been getting him down .
