Hi furiends, Betty and Stanley’s meowmy here. I have some sad news. Betty is very ill. You probably all remember about a month ago when I took Betty to the vet because she had been eating less and less. All her bloodwork had come back fine and her exam went well at that time. Well, little by little she seemed to keep losing weight and eating less. I had a trip scheduled to go out of state to visit and watch my grandbabies and I was gone for almost two weeks, hence the lack of posts recently. When I returned home this weekend I came home to a very ill cat. I took her to the vet right away on Sunday morning and she has been there ever since. She has been diagnosed with fatty liver disease, (Hepatic lipidosis) a very serious illness only cats get, and an upper respiratory infection. She is being treated with antibiotics, other medications, sub Q fluids and being fed by syringe. She will not eat on her own. I have no idea how my beautiful, fluffy, rotundly purring, sweet furball of a Betty who normally would eat anything in sight could just quit eating all together and become so ill so fast. I had no idea a condition such as this, almost like anorexia, exists in cats. Does anyone have experience with this? I’ve researched and learned it could take 4 to 7 weeks of force feeding for her to begin eating on her own again and recover if she makes it through these few days in the kitty hospital. I’ll do anything for Betty and try my best to nurse her back to health and would love any suggestions from anyone who has gone through this. Please pray and/or send up pawsitive thoughts for Betty. I’m just totally heartbroken. ❤️🙏🏼
I’m happy to finally say a project is done ... that never happens. Our CT project is done. This video is Mama Horizon going back to where we trapped her. Swipe right to see her kittens and the day we trapped her. This is amazing! Luckily I have the holding space where I was able to recover all these guys after their surgeries.... please see link in bio and donate. #tnr#rescueworks#catstermag#catsofinstagram @puppykittynycity The kittens are available for adoption if you are interested DM me.
