My Poor Special Needs Kitty Isn't Well

Well as much as I hate to say it my boy Wellington is not doing that well. He hasn't been eating or drinking or going toilet today. I knew he was sick when I took him in an so I was ready for anything but this sucks. I tried to make his last months good ones but it's still going to be sad to see him go. He was such a sweetheart.

Poor Wellington! Could it maybe just be something temporary? But if the end is nigh, then he had a damn fine life with you, Cal.

Not long enough. He usually eats and drinks and pees and poops well but today he's done none of that and I found him downstairs under the table. So if he walking all the way down those stairs he is not well. It's breaking my heart.

I am sorry to hear about Wellington's health. You've been so very kind to him, Cal! I'm sure he appreciates all the comfort and safety you've give him (even though cats don't generally let on...). Wishing you both strength and courage during difficult times.

Still saddened by this news. Bugger.

So sorry to hear of the bad news, good Sir Kal...

Dammit. I am also so sorry Cal. Heartache seems to be too prevalent nowadays anyway, but this really cuts one to the quick. After just having lost our black kitty Flossie last month, I'm really feeling this too. That first pic of Wellington really grabs my heart. You did a great thing Cal, and you did make his last times much better than they could have been. He had a comfortable place to ease some of his pain, and that counts for a lot. When the time comes, tell him to find Flossie. I think their spirits are a good match.

Thank you my friend. It's breaking my heart but I wouldn't trade my time with him for anything. I gave him a good end of life and lots of love so I hope he remembers that when he is in kitty heaven. He barely ate and drank today so I know its close.

DrGoat said...

May Odin grant him an honored place besides the Admiral and all the other good kitties, to dwell in spirit, free of pain. Flossie will find him I'm sure.

Have you tried colloidal silver? I swear by it with my 2 cats. Some good info at silveredge.com

Take him to a vet! Get a second or third opinion! Don't give up yet!

I thought my beloved Little Cat was done for, at least three times. He lasted past all estimates.

How's Wellington doing today, Cal? Sending best wishes.

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

He drank a bunch of water and peed but he is still very weak.

DrGoat said...

Jordan has a point. With a little care, he can last a little longer. A steroid kept our Cootie alive and happy till she was 24. She got really sick with an immune system problem and almost died when she was 15. But the steroid (it was a very common one, but I can't remember the name) let her live for 9 more years. Wouldn't assume to know if the Vet could help Wellington, but who knows. Sounds like it could be a kidney problem. We're all with you.
