Bad news update on Gracie, December 1st at 7:40 am EST


Dad Terry here.  When the phone rings in the middle of the night it is not good news.  The Emergency Vet called in the middle of the night.  Gracie had taken a turn for the worse and her breathing was bad.  They did another xray to check her lungs. She has pneumonia in both lungs and with asthma that is the perfect horrible storm.  Gracie may not make it.  We are devastated here.

  36. Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

    Hugs and purrs and prayers! All fingers and paws crossed that she takes a turn for the better soon!
    I know this is not Gracie’s problem, but it makes me wonder with all the other kitties sick if there might be a gas leak? Symptoms often seem like colds, and if it were a small leak stands to reason the kitties would be affected before people. Happened to my sister’s house once, they thought it was lingering colds, but it was a leak all the time.
    Anyway, we’re praying for your whole family and hope everyone is well again soon!

  37. KitKat

    Purring and praying for sweet Gracie. We hope she pulls through. She will stay in our thoughts and prayers. God bless little Gracie.
