I'm not sure I have enough fight in me. Alot of things are going against me.
I'm not hungry even with an appetite stimulant. If I do eat the only thing I will eat is baby food and not even enough of that. 3:30 in the morning Mommy could hear me crying downstairs in the livingroom so she went down there. I did eat some baby food and then fell back to sleep on a pile of PINK blankets. This morning for breakfast I would only eat a little baby food again. This is after Mommy opens new cans of the other foods.
I'm not pooping. Mommy looked at my chart and my last poop was actually Monday and that was a small one. My system seems to be all goofed up after getting nauseated on that antibiotic. The Vet's office had recommended to Daddy to sprinkle a little Metamucil on my food. But so far that is a no go in the litter box. I do let Mommy rub my tummy lots so it must be upset.
I'm not eating my pumpkin. My beloved well-stocked pumpkin - I don't want to eat it anymore. Mommy has gotten me to eat a little baby food squash which the Vet recommended.
I'm not smelling things. Mommy has to put food on my mouth as I seem to not have a sense of smell. Which can be common in CRF cats.
I'm not grooming myself. I use to always have to have my face purrfectly clean after eating, now Mommy washes my face for me. I don't even lick to clean around my mouth :(
I'm not begging for my massages. This really saddens Mommy. I loved my massages.
The only thing that is going smoothly is giving me fluids. But I don't look comfortable carrying around my camel's hump on the side. It is heavy! Even though I'm taking the fluids so well, this also could be stressing me out.
I know I'm all goofed up from the antibiotic, the stress from the Vet visits and of course we don't know if all this is happening because of the kidneys or the lungs.
This fight just isn't starting out on the right paw. Mommy will be calling the Vet as soon as they open. Unless I can poop before then. I think pooping might solve all my problems, well maybe not all... but some.
Aw, sweetie, hang in there and don't you dare give up. Perhaps the vet can recommend something that will comfort your tummy and help you go to the bathroom.
Purrs and hugs,
Mouse and Family

Rocky Ann, my friend
It's a hard fight and I understand you are so tired.
Do what you can and know that I love you in the ring or out of it.
We are also purring for poopies. A good poop can make one feel a whole lot better. Purring very very hard in NY - hope you can hear us in CA.
Not being able to poop makes everything seem worse. We're purring and purring that this is just a little stumble and you'll feel better when you get that poopie out. We know how stressful all of this can be, so we're sending hugs to your Mommy and Daddy too.
Purring for a good poopie! And sending purrs and hugs to your Mommy and Daddy.

RA, I am sorry to hear that things are hard right now. Fight with all you've got, sweetie. But if you're tired, that's okay, too.
