The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then will you do what must be done?
For this, the last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
But don't let grief then stay your hand.
For on this day, more than the rest,
your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You would not want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend.
Only stay with me until the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
until my eyes no longer can see.
I know in time you will agree
it is a kindness you do for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
from pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
who has decided this thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years.
Don't let your heart hold anymore tears.

Thanks so much for everyone's support, thoughts and purrs. It means a lot to me and my little family, especially Mozart. The metronidazole has reduced the vomiting, but not the diarrhea. Although I was told to wait until I was no longer giving to metronidazole to start the prednisolone, there are no contraindications for giving both concurrently. I started the prednisolone tonight with the hope that it will reduce Moazart's discomfort. I will try and update weekly, as time and fate allow. Please know, fellow Catsters, and the company who runs this site, that this community is what has always helped all of us survive and thrive in an environment that can only be described as incredibly supportive. Without the support of those who truly care, we are not living up to our true identities as humans and cat guardinas. Thanks to all who are there with us through this most difficult journey.

Priscilla, Mo's mom

I'd like to thank everyone for their kind words and support. My sister was able to get one cat into the no-kill shelter from where she adopted him. The other three are going to a sanctuary that I found through some of the contacts Miss Hazel Mazel sent me. I'm thrilled to know none of them will be euthanized and my sister can continue her recovery without having to worry about the safety of her pets.
Catster is such a wonderful community with such wonderful, supportive people. Thank you, Catster, for choosing my diary as DDP not once, but twice. It really made a big difference in the amount of contacts I was able to make, but moreover, knowing that I didn't have to face this alone.

 

Help needed

My name is Priscilla Wood and I live in Tampa, FL. My sister, Margaret, had a health issue about 10 days ago where paramedics found her unconscious in her apartment in Coatesville, PA. She underwent dialysis but is still very ill. She is currently rehabilitating at Brandywine Hall.

She has three cats who were taken to Chester County SPCA by animal control. She has been told that they're alive, but she is being charged $25 per day per cat for as long as they house them. She does not know her prognosis, and is unsure whether she'll eventually recover. She also cannot afford the fee to have them to released to her should she recover.

I would like to know if there's any way you can help. I have three cats of my own, and my landlord will not allow me to take anymore. My sister does not want them euthanized, nor does she feel comfortable leaving them at Chester County.

Please contact me via pawmail if you can give me any information about local, no-kill shelters that might be able to help.

 

The Littles

Hi, All!

As seen on my page, Mommy has "adopted" a family of ferals, the Littles. Their names are Abigail Little (the Mommy cat, tuxedo), Brownie Little (brown tabby with white) and Cloud Little (gray tabby with white). Of course, she speaks of them as if they're her own, and often refers to them as "The Leetles."

She leaves a bowl of food out everyday (yes, OUR FOOD, along with fresh water). She sets it out on the deck and each night, the Leetles show up for their evening meal. Her goal is TNR, but so far, the closest she can get to them is about 6 feet before they run away.

The kittens look to be about 6-10 weeks old (based on kitten pics from Mr. D's page...thanks Mr. D!), but Mommy is afraid that something is wrong. We haven't seen Cloud in over a week. Abigail always shows up with Brownie now, but no Cloud. We are (probably correctly) assuming the worst, so at this time, we would like to request some suggestions from other Catsters.

Does anyone know an easy way to trap Abby and Brownie? We feel that the sooner they can be TNR, the safer they'll be. Also, is Brownie too young to be altered? It's been awhile (almost 20 years, yikes!) since Mommy has had to have a kitten neutered. Finally, is there any other way to keep them safe, even if Mommy is unable to catch them, or will "nature take its course" regardless of what we do?

Thanks in advance for any advice. If it has four legs, whiskers and meows, Mommy will do anything she can to help.

Purrs,
Baby Mo'

WOW!

I have the most pawsome page! And trust me, it’s not because Mommy somehow became a “page-pimping” genius overnight. She can barely use her cell phone!

My page looks so good because Mommy made friends with Jobel http://www.catster.com/cats/525354, Jillian http://www.catster.com/cats/580727, Jasper http://www.catster.com/cats/580722, and Princess Zoe’s http://www.catster.com/cats/525627 mom. She does amazing things, and can really tune in to our true personalities! And all the way from Canada! She’s a true artiste! Am I the most spoiled kitty in the world? You bet! Not only do I get belly rubs every night from my Aunt-Mommy, I get massages from other kitties. No one deserves it more than me!

Please check out my furmily’s other pages. Every detail is purrfect! I hope you’ll all be as impressed as Mommy and I are!

Manx a lot, Manx-mommy! You make us all super happy kitties!

 

Six Things I Hate

July 29th 2008 12:12 pm

Well, I saw Louis LeBeau's diary entry and he said he'll consider the first six cats to read his entry as "tagged." See below:

"I am not tagging any cat in particular. You are on the honor system. The first six cats to read this-- consider yourself tagged. MOL! (Yes I am keeping count too.)"

Not sure if I'm one of the first 6, but here goes:

1. I hate going to the vet. But I guess almost everycat feels the same way.

2. I hate being fed late. If Mommy oversleeps, I get on her bed and meow loudly until she gets up to feed me.

3. I hate when things are out of place. If something is put in a spot where it isn't normally found, I approach it like it's a completely new item. Mommy and Aunt-Mommy sneak up and scare me when I do this and I jump straight up in the air. Then they laugh at me.

4. I hate being cold. Like my brother, Hannibal, I only look forward to the colder months because Mommy uses her electric blanket and we all get to curl up on the toasty bed every night.

5. I hate when someone stops brushing me. I would like to have those little spikes running down my back 24/7, but I'm always told, "My arm is tired!" What does that mean??

6. I hate when the trash bag gets replaced. Mommy likes to "shake it out" to unfold it so she can easily slip it into the trash can. It makes a super loud noise and I go running!

That's it! And I like Louis' idea. If you read this and want to join in, go for it!

Mo'
