News On Mittens

First of all, thanks to all of you for your kind words and support. It means so much to me!

The meds the vet gave Mittens seem to be helping and she is very hungry! I am giving her things she shouldn't have (she has been on special food for years, due to constipation.) She is getting stinky goodness and I will continue as long as it doesn't upset her. She loves it, poor girl is so sick of the same thing. She was very vocal after I brought her home, telling me to feed her something good. She still is very vocal, talking and talking to me and following me around. I wish I could understand her!

Again, thanks to all of you........your support is phenomenal!

Sad News

My Mittens has a tumor in her small intestine, where it connects to her stomach, also it has spread into her upper chest cavity. Mittens was very good, even through the lengthy ultrasound process, on her back. I held her front paws and talked to her, she actually nodded off once and never attempted to scratch or bite, she didn't even growl, like she does when she is upset. Christine, her vet, said they could operate for the tumor in the intestine, but that doesn't address the fact it has spread. Also her age is against her. She gave her two months. I have meds to help with her appetite. It is a cold, cloudy day, the way my heart feels right now. :(

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments, they mean so much!

Mittens is going to the vet tomorrow. They were booked today and she didn't seem to be ill, in fact had fun with a fly and carried on quite a conversation with me. She asks for food, but hasn't eaten in three days.

Thanks to all of you for your wonderful comments and all the purring! What great furriends you are. I will let you know the results.

Please, Purr For Mittens

Sometime in the night Mittens vomited blood and mucous, no food. She hasn't eaten for a couple of days now. I am taking her to the vet tomorrow or Tuesday. Please purr for her. Thank you.
