Lil Em and Sapphire: From Bad to Worse

      66 Comments on Lil Em and Sapphire: From Bad to Worse

 

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Please help my sister Lil Em

Update at 10:15AM EST.  I am worse and am bleeding.  I will be going Over the Rainbow Bridge at 3:00 PM EST today.  Please read my message below.  Love, Sapphire.

Hello everyone, it’s me Sapphire again.  Things really have gone from bad to worse, and I would like to bring you up-to-date and ask for your help once again.  You see, we thought we were dealing with one enlarged kidney with me, but actually it is a whole lot worse than that.   The vet examined me by palladium and has determined that I have lymphoma in both kidneys and it was confirmed by x-rays as well.

That means I have the dreaded cancer and will be leaving for the Rainbow Bridge soon. My Sister Lil Em and I were moved to foster care at Margs Pets, but I have since gone back to the original foster place and my Sister Lil Em has stayed with Marg.  I don’t know when I will be going Over the Rainbow Bridge, it could be soon, or it could be a while.  I will be going to the vet on Monday, and perhaps I will be going to hospice for palliative care. We just don’t know yet, and yes, there is someone here that provides palliative care for kitties like me.  Brian will let you know what happens.

Now for the favor.  Brian tells me he has the best friends in the whole wide world.  Would you please, please, please help my Sister Lil Em get the forever home that she and I hoped and dreamed about?  I would be eternally grateful and so would Lil Em.  While it is too late for me, it’s not too late for her.   She is in Anderson, SC, but Brian tells me that we can probably arrange transport.  Thanks to all of you for your outpouring of love and support.

Love,

Sapphire

Oh Sapphire, we are so very sorry.

Thanks Brian for doing this post about Sapphire. This is Lil Em writing this comment and my sister was the very best. She not only was pretty but also very sweet and I sure do miss her and need a family so bad. We have been passed around so much but I am a sweet girl too. I love to do head bumps and rub on you like crazy.
Marg is going to do a post about me tomorrow.

Growls and hisses to the ‘people’ who dumped these beautiful cats. Hoping they soon learn that Karma is a b*tch.

So sorry to read about Sapphire. She’s such a pretty kitty too. Purraying for Lil Em. If TW thought I could be trusted with another kitty, she’d be tempted to take her. But, alas, I still have that feral streak that can’t be tamed.

I just saw both posts right now and am so very sad about Sapphire. I so hoped, wished and prayed that this story would have a happy ending and that the girls would find a wonderful forever home together. It is heartbreaking that it didn’t happen. If my circumstances had been different I would have liked to have adopted them, but it was not to be. I hope that my Angel Kitty Inka will meet Sapphire OTRB and take care of her. I will have the purest and strongest intentions for Lil Em to find an amazing forever home. (Thanks… Read more »
