• Felix ...

    Hello All,

    I just pulled a QWK packet down and will be getting to that mail but I wanted to let you all know what is going on with me right now.

    My beloved kitty, Felix, is very sick. For about four days, he's been refusing all food and water. I didn't have money to take him to the vet but I asked for help on Facebook and thanks to the generosity of others, I was able to get him in today.

    After a full checkup consisiting of a comprehensive exam, X-rays, and a full blood panel, they discovered a mass in one of his lungs. They suspect pneumonia even though he didn't have a fever[1] and gave him a very expensive ($90!) shot of antibiotics that will run for about 14 days in his system. Hopefully this will take and get him better.

    It was nearly $400 just for the above.

    However, they cannot be sure of what that mass is without doing an ultrasound which I am sure is stupidly expensive.

    The main thing is I have to get him to try to eat. If he doesn't start eating soon, his liver will start to shut down.

    Right now, he is laying next to me on the floor. No food or water yet. I think he is coming out of sedation (he is a total jerk at the vet's, heh).

    If this doesn't work, I will have to put him down and after 13 years, this is my breaking my heart to think about.

    So if I am slow responding to messages this week, please understand that I am not ignoring you. Felix is like a son to me and I am trying to handle this news the best I can.

    Later,
    Sean

    It is hard to see a friend suffer and not know how to address
    it. How old is Felix?

    I am really sorry to hear, man.

    Take good care of that cat.
