Hi Furrriends,
This is Indy's mom taking over this morning. I'm at the animal hospital right now to pick Indy up to then take him to another specialty vet where he will be seeing an Internist and get an ultrasound. Everything is kind of a blur right now, but he started acting unlike himself this weekend. I knew something was def wrong by Monday because he hadn't eaten really since Sunday afternoon and he wouldn't go potty and he was hiding from me.

He did seem to be a little better Monday because he was peeing and drinking a little, so I didn't take him to the er yet because I was following advice from the holistic doc I had recently been seeing. Tues he was not better so I took him in. Basically, from what I remember now, his levels on all his bloodwork are way off. His wbc count is higher than they could imagine, and they did the test more than once to make sure. His liver is enlarged(why he's getting an ultrasound) but basically they think he may have leukemia or even worse, maybe FIP.

I know it doesn't help to worry but I just can't stop crying. I thought I was taking good care of him, how could I not know he was so sick??? He has been ok for the most part, and with this holistic vet he seemed to be great. I am sicking with scientific medicine for now-I know at least there is science behind it. Please purrray for indy. Kitty has been mewing around the house since last night, she knows something is not right. I'm not sure what till happen once I go to the new play, but will keep you posted on my boobalicious.

Love Kristin

We are all purring and praying for you Indy!! Please tell your Mom not to beat herself up to badly about not knowing you were sick. Us cats do a really good job of hiding our illnesses until we are really hurting. (((HUGS Indy and Mom)))

Loving Purrs,

We are sending huge purrs for you. Purring that it will be something easy to fix, and for strength if it is not. I know we always think the worst too. We are here for you.

Oh, Kristin! Of course you were taking very good care of him. Some things are just out of our control. If only love and care could make us well, we wouldn't have all those scary illnesses. We kitties are notoriously good at hiding just how sick we are. That's 'cause we don't want to worry our Mommies.

Sprinkling lots of healing dust and purring very very very hard for you and Indy.

Don't blame yourself. You're a very good Mommy.

Purrs and huggies to you both.

Oh no, I didn't know Indy was that sick. I'm so sorry.
Your a good Mommy and I know you are doing the best for Indy.
Our deepest purrs and prayers are with Indy and You.

We are purring and praying lots for you Indy and also your mom and family!! We hope you feel better soon, we pray that it is not something too serious. To make your mom feel better at our clinic a lot of the cats that come in tend to hide that they are not feeling well, don't beet yourself up about it. You are taking very good care of Indy!

It is a cats nature to act like everything is normal until they really don't feel like hiding it anymore, or there is a possibility that it came along suddenly too.

Big hugs,
Simon and Tony

We are so so sorry : ( I don't even know what to say. Do you think he could have gotten into something? A plant? Some sort of toxin? He is safe in Heaven now. A handsome angel boy and you will see him again.
