With Pain in My Heart
I simply can not remember when my heart felt so much pain!
After helping my friend get through her fire and the loss of almost everything she owned, I felt like God had given me a gift by sending my missing cat home to me.
She came home a week ago today, and was so very thin and weak. I took her to the vet Monday morning and she gave her fliuds IV and said it looked like she had been closed in somewhere for a VERY Long time! They said some damage could have been done to her kidneys. But they weren't able to get any more blood from her to check.
I brought her home with special food and she seemed to be doing better. She was eating and drinking, even though it was small amounts.
Then Friday eve she quit. I tried to force feed her, but she would then vomit.
Saturday morning I honestly thought she was going to die. She is so weak!
I had gotten my other two cats from the pound about 3 weeks ago, so I have been taking turns letting the two of them and Sasha have the run of the house.
Yesterday I kept the two of them in my room most of the day and kept Sasha out with me. She will drink a little water, but has not eaten anything since Friday. I have just held her and cried.
I slept on the sofa with her in my arms last night thinking she would not make it through the night, but she did.
I really did not want to put her through the trama of going back to the vet again, since I don't think at this point there is much they can do to help her. She was just locked away for too long!
She keeps vomiting even though she isn't eating.
But, if she makes it through tonight, I will have her there first thing in the morning and will ask them to put her to sleep....I just CAN"T watch her suffer anymore!
All I know is that God brought her home to me so that she didn't die locked up all alone in some strange place! I just wish she would have gotten home sooner so that I could have saved her!
My heart hurts for her!
