Arrival Story:
After Rufus' brother died, we went to a different shelter looking for a new companion for him. Bob seemed cute, but not too bright. When we took him out of the cage and put him on the table he walked right off the edge! We decided to take him but after his exam they told us we'd have to come back the next day since he had fleas and needed a dip. When we went back to the cage to say goodbye, he looked so miserable. He was huddled up in the corner with his head hung in shame. We named him Bobcat because of his face (he has a majestic fluffy tail). The next day we took him home and locked him in the kitchen for the night. After my brother turned out the lights, we heard the most pathetic high pitched mewing. My brother couldn't believe his manly, mighty Bobcat had such a girly voice. That's when I knew that Bob was part Maine Coon.

Bio:
Bob was diagnosed with CRF in January of 2010. The vet also suspected he had GI lymphoma. With treatment we were able to stabilize his kidneys, but it seems to have taken a toll on his heart. On the night of April 18, 2011 Bob would not engage with us and seemed to be breathing rapidly. We took him to the ER and were shocked when they told us he was in heart failure. After a chest X-ray confirmed the diagnosis, we made the tough decision to help him cross over. Shortly after 1 AM on April 19, 2011, Bob joined Rufus at the Rainbow Bridge. Fly free, Fluffy Angel. Love is Forever.

Our regular vet called this morning. He said it's time. Not-the-Momma is going with Momma to say their final goodbyes - until they meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks for the purrs, prayers, love, and support.

 

Emergency Purrs and Prayers Needed for Briana

Our sister Briana is in the Critical Care Unit at the animal hospital. It's been a rough 48 hours for her and Momma. This afternoon, Momma found out that Briana has bladder cancer. She talked to our vet and they decided to start her on a new anti-inflammatory medicine on Monday - she has been taking Prednisone, but they need to stop that and give it time to clear her system before they can start the new medicine.

Tonight when Momma got home, she found Briana hadn't piddled all afternoon. Momma gave her a pain medicine and her subQ fluids hoping that would help flush out her system. It didn't work, so they ended up going to the ER. They gave her stronger pain medication to make her comfortable.

The ER vet tried to act unbiased, but he obviously thought euthanasia was the answer. Momma was having none of that foolishness. So they're keeping her overnight. Her REAL vet will be in at 8 in the morning. Momma's hoping to stick to the original plan - keep Briana stable for the weekend and give the new medication a try.

Please, please, PLEASE pray for Briana. We know she's a fighter, but she needs all the help she can get. Thank you.

Love is Forever,
Rufus, Bob, Jack, & Hamlet
