A Turkish Angora Tale, Chief Kit for NipandBones.com
It is a furry sad day for all of us as my brofur Lucky ran off to the bridge last night. Since the last post he had many ups and downs but was fighting hard, he certainly was not ready to leave his momma. Even after he was diagnosed with diabetes and could no longer walk his bright eyes let momma know that he wasn’t ready to go anywhere.
He only recently declined, after having IBD, renal failure, and diabetes ultimately the anemia was something he could not fight. You should have seen momma with him, she is a kitty nurse pro. She gaves him his injections every day along with many kisses and pets.
LociLu and I were very good and understanding that our brofur didn’t feel like he use to. I sure did and will miss pawing with him.
Momma does not want to go into any details of his passing as it is just too raw and she keeps breaking down in tears. Over 16 years is a long time to have a sweet kitty boy that loves you so much.
This is one of momma’s favorite most recent pictures of him!
And since he was having a hard time with his temperature momma had to keeps him warm. Here he is with his fleece blanket, he loved to snuggle and hide his nose and face under the blanket.
Daddy was not ready in the least bit (just like momma) and is so sad about his baby boy. He is glad he is no longer any kind of pain and is running around with their kitty Patches (calico before me) once again.
Thank you to everyone who left comments on the posts in facebook and thank you for reading.
One last photo of him on the momma before he was even sick. They call him Lucky “Cow” Cat.
Hai Furriends! As some of you may know I have fursibs, LociLu who is a snowshoe my sister, and Lucky who is a Siamese mix my brother. We all lives together with momma and daddy.
Lucky turned 16 years old in March of this year. He has always been a relatively healthy cat but a few months ago before momma went on her trip to see the Star Trek stars they noticed he was losing lots of weight and eating less.
The vet diagnosed him with stage 4 renal failure which means most of his kidney function is gone. It has been a busy few months as they treat all the symptoms that he is having. He has had a couple set backs, one being constipation and the other which is now an apparent abscess/tooth infection. The infection has made him very swollen in the face and weak. So he is on pain meds, antibiotics, and very wet food until he is feeling better.
Momma is watching over him with me by her side. Here are a couple of recent photos of him. He could use some purrrrs and healing thoughts as he was doing so well 2 weeks ago. He needs to re-stabilized.
Thank you everyone! I hopes everyone is doing well. Purrrrrrrrrs
Happy Tuesday! Well I know the day is almost over but I told momma I just had to let everyone know that the Santa Paws Drive is now live and taking donations. After all momma did work hard to pick out all the toys and treats to send to the kitties and pups in the rescues.
Don’t know what the drive is? Straight from the site, “Now in our fifth year, Santa Paws Drive is the first “virtual toy drive” for pets! Donate either cash or gifts (the choice is yours!) and the Santa Paws elves will divide up the goodies and money and send them off to six shelters across the world!”
We are always furry excited to be a part of making so many kitties and doggies have a wonderfur holiday despite waiting for an furever home. Plus all the donations provides for all the necessary care they all need.
Mrs. Santa Paws is here to reminds you to please support the drive by adding the widget on the site to your blog or site. Thank you! Purrrrrrrrrs
