We are so sad our Zeke had to make his journey to the rainbow bridge November 5th. He was very sick with kidney failure. He spent 9 days at our vet getting IV fluids hoping it would bring his numbers down. They came down enough that he got to come home. He was getting 200ml of fluids everyday, but when they checked his blood this time his numbers went up. He was thin, weak, stopped eating. Mom made the dreaded decision to let him go. He was mom's boy, her lap kitty, been very very hard on mom, she is grieving.
This year has been hard on our family, with 4 of us sick, many vet visits, me almost dying and at the ER, Zeke at vet 9 days, sadly losing Kandi and Zeke less than 6 months apart. Mom thinks we are all cursed for what ever reason, it just doesn't stop. Now Xena isn't feeling well she goes to vet tomorrow. We are all praying she will feel better and not have to go to ER.
I am doing so so, mom says I have to go to vet too, getting lots of mucus in my throat again hard for me to eat and swallow. She hopes I can get in this week.
Well that all from here. Sorry we are not around too much going on health wise with some of us.

Well it has been a trying time for me and of course mom & dad. Not only are they having to watch over me, take care of me and fix special food for me actually mom does they have been dealing with Xena and Zeke my cat sisfur & brofur.
Mom keeps saying she should have studied to be a vet tech, she feels like all she does since she retired is take care of sick furry babies.
So I was doing ok mostly, mom & dad have to always watch over me when I eat and after to make sure I can get my food down not have it cone back up. Some days I do really good, some days not so much, then I don't eat much.
Last month Zeke was not doing well, he's lost a lot of weight. Found out he has chronic renal failure too just like Xena, so mom has 2 kitties getting fluids now.
Zeke is still not eating much or feeling well. Mom thought it might be his toofies Zeke went to our new vet 40 mins away, vet checked him and took blood, Zeke's kidney numbers went way up. So now mom and dad have to give him fluids everyday for 2 weeks, he goes back to vet for another blood check. Mom is so worried about Zeke, Xena is doing good now that she is taking her thyroid pill 2 times a day and got her phosphorous number done. She even weighs more than Zeke and to think she will be 18 soon. WOW way to go Xena.
Yesterday right after mom & dad got home from grocery shopping dad let me out and something happened. I started the coughing and choking, trying to get mucus out. My tongue was blue as I was having a hard time breathing, both mom & dad were trying to get the mucus away from my mouth so I wouldb't lick it back into my mouth. Lots came out, took me over an hour to finally not choke and able to breathe good again. Mom really thought I was going to die right in front of her. Dad said he wouldn't take me to my old vet because of what they did with medicating me. I wasn't feeling well last night, didn't eat my dinner even if mom was trying to hand feed me. I just want to sleep, I slept most of the night, mom kept checking on me. She also checks on Zeke, she feeds Xena & Zeke during the night. Mom made me scrambled eggs this morning ate a little and some of it came right back up. So mom tried holding me up and hand fed mr, she knows I am hungry. I kept it down.
Poor mom she doesn't sleep through the night because of us 3 sick babies, she is always worrying, has the feeling of dread, the not knowing what is next with one of us. She feels tried all the time and is depressed. Just so much bad has happened since we moved, can we ever get a break!
So if we are not around much you all know why, mom tries to stop by when she can or is feeling ok. Mom goes to dr. next week she hopes they can help her feel better, after all she can't keep feeling this way and neithor should we.
We all could use some prayers.....
Hugs to you all, happy Fall
Mia and family

So far so good, I am doing pretty good with eating, we have a routine now, dad is helping too he holds me in my doggie carrier/pouch after i eat.
My vet admitted that what she gave me caused my passing out. My mom & dad decided to make the appt. for internal medicine to get the scope down my throat/tummy well Mom almost choked when they told her how much, way over $2000 almost $3,000.
Mom and dad said no, since they lost trust in my vet mom started looking on line again to find another vet, well she found one that does regular medicine & alternative lIke we had in San Diego. They are 43 mins. away but they feel this is for the best. They use better quility anesthesia, they are not as expensive and they even have someone come in to do things like the scope I need for a lot less.
I go Monday, we will let you know how it goes, mom hopes I can see the holistic vet to give mom ideas on how to help me. She will be taking Zeke & Xena there eventually too. Kody & Tu if all goes well will go as well. Mom is sad we have to change vets but when the trust has been lost it will always be hard to trust them completely. They are all nice mom knows they do care but.... she has to think of us & how much things cost.
So wish me luck!!!
Have a great weekend
