THIS WOULD BE A VERY GOOD TIME TO TRY OUT THE "GIVE NOW" BUTTON ON THE SITE HERE!!!
He needs to have the fluid drained at the very least, but also to get well he needs a diagnosis and treatment. He's so happy and well otherwise! Have asked all I know for assistance...
He slept by my head last night...an amazingly sweet and beautiful young man. He's just 18 months old!
In other news, a fantastic new volunteer started yesterday! Smart and a worker, mature. Works, does not "visit". Had to leave her when I got an emergency call...a young woman in tears: her cat had a urinary blockage, and was crying in pain. I was horror-stricken: that is a terrible condition. A cat can be dead within four hours of a blockage...terrible and very painful.
My dear Dr. Mandy, working on a Sunday, saw him right away, but absent four thousand dollars for iffy surgery, there was no helping him. The blockage was such that they would need to open up the bladder to the outside, a nasty business. Holistic care might POSSIBLY have been of use, but we did not have the money to pursue that avenue. Please donate. I vowed to have more funding SOON! (I am working on grants, but they take soooo long) The poor woman was not prepared, though I'd told her it might be too late. Simba was a huge, sweet orange male, she'd rescued as a kitten. This very young woman was working two McJobs, had a rescued dog to comfort her, but still was deeply affected. We took Simba to my place for a service, and I took them home. I called her today. Simba is buried, and she was packing up some of his things. Bless them both.
In other news, dear friend Connie is moving, and some of her cats, especially some who have moved to HER house from OUR house (!!) may prefer to stay here. Will start encouraging them to visit our house more often..
The joy of living with these divine beings and the widening of my understanding of, shall we say, life, is hard to put into words. The experience itself is non-verbal...which is a good thing. I think, as many do, that the advent of spoken and written language has caused many of our other communicative abilities to wither. Not to die: my ventures into intuitive communication have proven that they lie dormant and can be revived.
Love to all!
