Holly is doing a little better this morning

February 17, 2010
From Cats

This picture is from five years ago; she always had a slight build. 

Now, she’s frail.  The Vet asked MrsDoF if we were sure she’s only 14.  Yes, we are, and her brother Oscar is hale and healthy despite an arthritic hip.  But she’s not doing well, down to only 8 lbs and Sunday she hardly moved at all.

Still, she seems to have perked up a bit since the vet.  A shot of antibiotics, and now insulin she’ll receive in addition to her thyroid medicine.  Maybe it’s selfish, but I didn’t want her to go in Winter.  She loves being outside in the warm sun.

    Bless her heart—there are two people in this household hoping she will rally around soon.

    Get well soon, sweetie!  We’re all pulling for you, little girl.

    My friend Chrissy is going through much the same with her 15+ year old siamese.  It’s tough,  I know how she’s trying to handle it.  It isn’t easy…

    Just love the little thing as much as you can…

    She has actually recovered.  Some damage to her eyesight and the vet says she’s physically older than her 15 actual years, but she is getting around and back to her sweet self again. :-)
