This will be a short diary. Wizard just joined Catster about a month ago. When he came to us he was a foster kitty. As time went on, he began to lose weight & became unadoptable (we hoped temporarily).
We worked for about 6 months, trying to get the weight back on Wizard. At first we thought it was his teeth - he had stomatitis - so each month he got a shot from the vet to help keep that under control. That didn't seem to be working so we did blood work - no negative results. We tried force-feeding & fluids. Wizard seemed to start to bounce back a bit.
Then, today we went for our regular monthly checkup and Wizard had lost almost a pound in one month & his temp was only 95 degrees. Doc said it was time to let our boy go to the Bridge. We did everything we could, but in the end all we could really do was love our Wizard enough to recognize that he was ready to go be an angel. We may never know exactly why he faded this way, but we were blessed to have him while we did!
God bless, sweet boy!
