Hi everyone, we had to think hard about which one us should put this in their diary. Alex usually does because she's the one who suffered so much with these diseases and lost her battle and as you know, she's the warrior of helping other kitties now. But Gumpy is very special to me and even though Finney, Alex and myself all love him equally, he's one of my tuxie bestest furriends and I need very much to send him as many purrs and purrayers as possible right now.
Gump is diabetic, he's been doing very well for a long, long time. But recently he developed pancreatitis and unfortunately this is a very painful and scary condition as it flares up out of no where and for no good reason. It can lead to a lot of complications as the pancreas is a tricky and hard to deal with organ.
He's not doing well right now, he's not eating, he's sleeping a lot and he's vomiting and has bad diarrhea. Not like him at all. He's seeing an internal medicine specialist vet on Monday and we really need to purr that they figure out exactly what's happening and are able to help him. Please send giant purrs and purrayers for our wonderful and handsome friend Gump. My momma is praying too.
Gumpy! Help is on the way! Open your paws and let yourself feel the hugs and kisses from all of us. We love you so very, very much!
Luv Lacey and family
Going over straight away Lacey to send the power of the paw, purring as hard as I can love Tilly xx
Thank you very much sweet girl! We knew we could count on our friends here and Gumpy is very well loved anyways so I am sure he'll be getting a ton of purrs. Thank you Tilly! We love you!
Thank you for posting this, Lacey. You know how much Gumpy means to me and our family. His being sick makes me feel very sad and helpless because I want to help my best buddy feel well again. Our heart goes out to his Momma, she has to be worried sick about him and we wish we could be there to give her a big hug. We are big believers in the Power of the Purr, and we are purring non-stop right now for sweet Gumpy.
We know you love him dearly Tully! We are all such caring furriends here. It breaks our hearts too, it means the world to them to have everyone here as friends. We believe in the power of the paw too! We've seen it work! The purring here on Catster is loud and clear and filled with pure love. That's why it works so well. purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Awww, thank you sweet Lacey for writing a diary entry for me! I am so appurrciative! Mom is hoping I will turn the corner soon from this. We hope the internal medicine vet can give some more information. I did want to let you know that I did stop vomiting after I got an anti-nausea injection on Tuesday, so I have been able to keep down any food I'm getting. I have been eating a little today, but Mom is still force feeding me. Another good thing is my blood glucose is still good. So my diabetes still seems to be in remission. But this does seem to be a severe flare-up. I've been feeling pretty bad. Thank you everyone for the purrs!!!
P.S. Tell Finney that my momma is keeping a close eye on my poop shoot and hoping my poop firms up soon! MOL - see Finney's diary if you want a laugh...
HAHAHAHAH, glad we could make you laugh Gumpy! Laughter is the best medicine ya know. Finney dropped a poop ball out of the box today but other than that, NO squishy poops! Hurray! MOL! And you're so welcome you handsome and loving boy. We would do anything for you. I hope you know that!
I'm purring with you Lacey. And Gump, hang in there buddy.
Hi Zach! Whatcha purring for me fur? I'm feeling great! Although I'll still take them, everyone an use purrs of love!
We're joining all our paws with you guys for the greatest amount of power! Gump, you are in our thoughts & purrayers - hope you keep getting better! Finney must be trying to play Nuk's PooperBowl game(see Nuk Anuk's diary!). We also have a new game started that everyone can play: name the thing your hyoome says the most, TO or ABOUT you. I played today. prrrrrrrrrrrrrp, Tink
Misty and I are joining in the purr chain for Gump to get better. We know that Angel Whispers is up there with Alex and they are giving angel kisses and headbonks and purrs to Gump as well.
I'm sending purrs.
