Nervous

Post by TemerityB » October 29th 2018, 2:48pm

It's only been two years since we adopted the then eight-year-old Izzy, the sweetest creature I have ever known (yeah, I've had a few pets, but as for purity of heart, this one is beyond the norm). It's been two years of a lot of affection, shopping for just the right flavors, and just what I needed. After the death of my dog in 2015, Izzy came in and just picked up where Belle left off. Not a problem, not a bad moment with Izzy since she came here. Not a bad moment.

Suddenly, there's trouble: Recent health workups have revealed elevated liver enzymes, and even more suddenly, she's not eating. New blood work shows off-the-charts numbers, and not in a good way; tomorrow I take her in for the big test to see WTF is happening here.

It hasn't been long enough with her. I'm already fucked in the head; I need more of that not a bad moment stuff. Damn.

You guys shouldn't stress out about it..Vets can do tremendous things these days w/ sick dogs & cats...you might pay a penny or two that you hadn't planned for, but there's not much Vets haven't seen or know how to treat..pretty confident all of you are in good hands...keep us informed as things work out..and, of course, mucho good luck, even though you probably won't need it!!!..

I have seen more of my share of death and destruction, but nothing tears me up worse than one of my animals are sick or injured. I will say a special prayer for Izzy’s fast recovery my friend

Had a similar thing with one of ours a few months ago. Vet thinks she got into something. (some common plants can be very bad for cats) She got an IV to hydrate and some meds and was better in a couple of days. Hope she's OK. She's a New Yawker.

Thanks gang. Anything she needs. I'll make sure.

What Thunder said. Obviously, you're going to worry, but keep a good thought, and wait for the straight dope from the vet. Naturally, I'll keep some good thoughts, and Mrs. C some prayers, as she stands in better stead with the Lord than my sorry ass.

Hoping whatever is going on with Izzy is treatable.

Hopefully everything will work out for all of you. Perhaps just something she ate rather then anything serious.

Well, gang: An ultrasound was done, revealing much. Which led to biopsies and exploratory surgery, and a bill that could buy a cheap car. Worth every penny.

In short: She's sick. It would take another 500 words to describe how, but rather than bore you all, I'll just say her innards are really messed up. The odd part is that she's still acting the same way she's always acted, as if nothing's wrong at all, showing energy, hunger, playfulness; it feels like a cosmic screwing, in a way. Nothing in her life has suggested she's sick ... but she is. In a few days we'll know how much, and what our next move will be, find out what we can do.

For now, I'm gonna spoil this wonderful creature even more than I have before.

I am so sorry. But do keep a good spirit now. We almost lost a dog last summer, vets were clueless about the rootcause. But in the end 4 weeks of a mix of antibiotics did help. And she is still young for a cat. 9 lives - that is more than just a myth.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Izzy.

Having had many rescue animals over the years (currently 4 dogs), they quickly become beloved family members who are grateful, expect nothing and give unconditional love. It is exceedingly difficult when they are sick and cannot talk to you, but somehow we figure it out.

Know that whatever the issues, Izzy trusts you to do what is best for her.

This is the strangest thing. Ultrasound and biopsies, warning us about this or that. Results came back in: No cancer cells found but they're not ruling it out - there are less than no symptoms and she still acts utterly normal but now they're putting her through a battery of medicines and there are more tests next week. Bloodwork in a month. I did see the ultrasound and it looked, well, awful. But who knows?!?

Well, we still have her at least a while. Hey, I bet all of your good thoughts helped. Thanks, as always, gang.

These were some of the kittens my daughter found behind her work place which we were able to save. We kept one of them and the other three were given to the local Humane Society which is a no kill shelter as opposed to the national one. We sponsored the kittys and they were adopted in 3 days.

One family adopted Boo & Binx. The father really liked them and was told they were brothers. His daughter fell in love with them and at $125 each he adopted them.
