Thank You All! Billie is better! She has been eating like crazy today, hasn't barfed or pooed and just peed nicely in her box.
She's tangled from her bath yesterday and will need a lot of grooming, but she is very happy.
I am overwhelmed with all of the kindness of everyone. I don't know if I can even put it in words how much you all have touched me and how much your lovely words and outpouring of friendship mean to me. I have tears of happiness and relief today. I'm also amazed at the power of Purrs and Prayers.
Now, on to what I think happened. I will know for sure when she goes to the VET for a checkup. Bear with me because this will be a bit gross.
Billie loves Temptations. I mean love as in would eat the whole bag in one day. She last had quite a bit Friday night. She relapsed again later that night. (She started getting sick Thursday evening.)
Her poo was very loose and her being fluffy didn't make it easy. She reeked. But, it smelled oddly familiar. Here's the yucky part. I kept trying to place that smell. I thought about what she had eaten. When she greeted me this morning purring and wanting to be fed I was so happy and I opened up a can of stinky goodness. I then picked up the Temptations bag and realized that they smelled like Billie's poo! She had not had any Temptations since Friday evening. Could Billie be allergic to Temptations? I'm starting to think so!
When I say she's feeling better I mean Billie is just like her old self. She's eating and drinking water, not hiding under the sofa and she's purring when I pet her. I can't let her have Temptations anymore. I don't even want to test my theory. All of my mother's instinct is telling me I'm right.
If I'm wrong and she gets sick again before her appointment I don't know what I'll do.
I can't thank everyone in the Kitty Blogosphere enough for visiting and leaving their gentle purrs. Every time I read about a fur baby getting sick or going to the Bridge I cry and feel so bad. It means so much to know there are so many that love their kitties and woofies and other pets as much as I do. It's not that my family doesn't like my kitties, it's just that they don't have the maternal feelings and bond that I have with them.
You are all very special and I can't get over how just one word from Mo and everyone responds. The Power Of Mo... :)
I went to the Cat Blogosphere page and was just amazed at the network! I now know to check there regularly so I know what is going on.
I have so many Blogs to visit. I will be visiting as many as I can this coming week. Please know how much I appreciate all of you. Billie and I will always be grateful for you kindness and caring.
I will update again soon and hopefully she will still be feeling better and better.
Love and Hugs Always! <3
