Very Worried, Very Sad
Very Worried and Very Sad.
Oh, I do not even want to type this. Billie is not doing well at all. She is barely eating except for bits of Fancy Feast and she growls at me whenever I try to touch her. She has crawled into the cat carrier we keep out for Toeshee's timeouts and will only come out once in a while to use the litterbox. I have had to coax her to eat and she will drink a bit of water. I asked my husband what we should do? Is it time for sub- cu fluids, or should we be thinking about something worse? He is not happy about taking measures that may not help and the Vet says it is up to us and she will help us make Billie comfortable. I have a bad feeling about that word; comfortable.
I know what my husband thinks is the best thing for her. I am just not ready to give up on Billie yet. I just don't want to do this again. Not my Billie, not now.
I am supposed to go in for x-rays on my hips, but I'm going to cancel so I can stay with Billie and save some money in case I need it for her. If I can just keep her eating and hydrated she may get some strength to bounce back a bit. She has done it before. Please keep Billie in your thoughts and purrayers.
Hugs. <3 (I will try to update and visit when I get a chance, okay?)
