Facing the Music.


So, while the peace and quiet has allowed me to relax. The lull in activity has also forced me to look at things and realize the truth. You may not be able to tell from this photo, but little HB(who topped out at 10 1/2 pounds in her prime), is weighing in at about 5 pounds right now.

(And she was one tough kitty in her prime - she hunted mice and carried live chipmunks into my house - just for me. She would then "MAO MAO" at the top of her lungs, with her mouth full, to let me know she had a gift for me. She would wander the neighborhood and station herself at the edge of electric fences to taunt the large dogs who could not get to her. Tough. She is tough.)

While she is still drinking, she has almost entirely stopped eating her dry food. I've managed to get her to eat some tuna in the last day, but I feel she is beginning to fail. This morning, soon, we are making a trip to see Dr. Toogood to have a reality check. Wish us well.

Comments:
Oh no. Good thoughts going out to you and HB.
 
There is an old Irish saying -

Who would believe such pleasure from a wee ball o'fur.

Hang in there.
 
Good thoughts are coming your way. I also had Peyton Manning on my fantasy football. I was very happy.
 
Oh my... yes I wish you all well. She looks so fragile.
 
Oh damn. Fingers crossed...
 
Oh, no. I'm sending very positive thoughts your way. It's so hard to make those tought choices.
 
Oh, kitty. Very sad. Best wishes to you and your family.
 
Tigger is purring warmly for HB. Blessings to you all....
 
*hugs* to you and *scritches* to HB. I'm told that meat baby food can entice kitties to eat...
 
You, your family and little HB are in my prayers.
When I took Jamie to the vet after losing a great deal of weight she asked when Jamie had lost all her teeth. Baby food kept her going a while longer. I hope you find the same...

Chief and Bert are sending good thoughts too!
 
I'm so sorry, we'll be thinking of you guys.
 
What a sweet kitty. I hope the vet visit went well.
 
I hope everything went well - what a cutie she is!
 
Hope all went well for you and HB with your visit to the vet.
 
Hugs and prayers for you and kitty:D
 
Last Autumn our 22 year old kitty was so ill, and suffering, we knew we had to do something for her. I found a vet who would come to our home to euthanize her. She and we had a quiet, comfortable and peaceful last few moments together. The vet was incredibly kind and we got a sympathy card from him later. You have my best wishes and sympathy.
