An Important Health Update from Sister Precious

      101 Comments on An Important Health Update from Sister Precious

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Hello everyone. It’s me Precious and it’s time we had a serious chat. You see, I’m not doing overly well. Not well at all. I have good days and I have bad days. Right now I’ve had more good days, two weeks ago I had more bad days.

I am not sure how much longer I’ll be staying, but I wanted to give you a heads up so you wouldn’t be surprised.  I might be here a while yet, but then again, I might not.  It seems as though lots of things are going wrong all at the same time.  I’m 14 now so I suppose that’s just part of the aging process for me.  Getting old sucks though.  I just wasn’t expecting for it to hit all at once.

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all of you welcoming me to the blogosphere and I can always feel all the love you send my way.  I’m lucky to have landed here, and I do know that.  I’m still very happy and intend to stay that way.  Oh, I’m a fighter but sometimes there’s only so much you can do.  I don’t intent to give up without a fight though.

Thanks for letting me get this off my chest and thanks for all the purrs and prayer I know that will be coming when you read this.  I love you all too.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Precious, this saddens us deeply. We hope you’ll be here for quite a while yet, with good quality of life, but we also understand the reality that sometimes that’s not possible. Whatever happens, know you are surrounded by love–from your family and from many around cyber space. Blessings and purrs to you.

    Precious, i cross my paws and I send healing weim-.power to support your fight…. it’s true getting old is definitely no fun… Hugs to you and I hope this caturday is one of the good days for you.

  7. Emma

    Oh Precious, we are so sorry you are not doing well. Living with our senior sister, we know how things can really change from day to day. We pray you are comfortable and you will do what you need to do. You may not appreciate it, but I send you some hound hugs and slobber. It is what we dogs do to show our love. Take care.

  8. Pat Hatt

    Age sure can bring the bad days on. But hopefully that is just some con and it switches back to tons of good. Fight on indeed at your feed.

  9. Sammy

    Dear Beautiful Sister Precious…….I am sending you tons of purrs and POTP…….it’s not easy getting old and only another “oldie” can understand. I am in the same place you are in my life (just turned 16 in January) and I have lots of good AND bad days. Some days Mom is sure I’m leaving her – but next day I’m OK……I keep my humans guessing! For now though, I’m hanging in there – but I know like you, every hour I’m here I’m loved completely and unconditionally…….it’s the BEST feeling isn’t it? I know you feel that as well………we are lucky………

    Hugs, Sammy

  10. Sailor Edgar

    I am so sorry to hear that you are not well…hope you have more good days! At my age, I am definitely aware of the problems involved. Big hugs from us and purrs from the kitties!

  11. Annabelle

    Dear Precious
    We all understand how swiftly time seems to catch us all at once. It did that to our Angels Abby & Gracie. WE are keeping you in our purrs and hope the good days are a lot more plentiful than the bad. ((HUGS))

    Oh Sister Precious, even though we are on a blogging break, I insisted mum let me come so I can give you my bestest purrs! You are a fighter for sure and we are thinking of you and your fursibs and your peeps ❤️❤️❤️

  15. Cats of Wildcat Woods

    Dear Precious we are so very sorry your bad days are more often now. We know how hard it is to go thru this for you and your humans. We made the same decision for Georgie when she was having more and more health issues requiring hospital stays. It is a quality of life issue. When it gets so that the bad days way outnumber the good, then it is not a good quality of life. Hoping you will be with your family for a while longer – sending lots of loving purrs to you all.

  16. KitKat

    Praying for good days for you Precious. Sending tons of love and extra hard purrs.

  17. Flynn

    I am sorry you are not doing so well, Precious. Keep fighting though and treasure your good days. It is 16 months now since I became ill and 14 months since I almost crossed the Bridge. My bad days were getting really bad and my mum and dad thought it was my time, but mum felt in her heart that I was not ready, and I am still here. I still have bad days, but only about 2 a week. On my good days I really enjoy my life. What I am trying to tell you is keep fighting, don’t give up. I know how you feel and some days it would be only too easy to give in. Your family will know when it is your time and will help you with all their love. Until that time comes enjoy every day. I am purring for you and sending gentle headbutts.

  18. Annie

    Oh no. Precious, I didn’t know you were doing poorly but I do remember that you got sick in the summer (or thereabout). We here are all hoping for the best. You are truly precious and we really want you to have many, many good days and very few (or no) bad days. Your family loves you so much and that is a true blessing.

  19. Raven

    Sister Precious, I’m sorry you’re having so many days when you’re not feeling well. I hope you have many more good days where you can enjoy your wonderful home, loving family, and visits with the downstairs kitties. Purrs.

  20. Rosemary B and Pierro and Miles

    This is distressing news but you are so loved and cared for. We know each day is precious, just like you♥️

  22. Layla Morgan Wilde

    Oh no, I was hoping for better news but fully understand the up and down, better and worse days evaluation and care. Sending hugs for all. What I’ve learned is being strong to respect the cat’s process and not rushing into the big sleep. Hardest thing ever and I know you’ll do right with Precious. xoxo

    Now Sister Precious, you know we will all be right by your side as we have been since you arrived at Brian’s Home. You are such a lovely ladycat and we all know you have loved having your own home. I did n’t know you are 14, and really had no idea you have not been well for a while now. But then, *hangs head embarrassed* Mom L doesn’t let me visit as often as I want with my friends. TKS and I are sending you our very best warm caring purrs and Mom L is having a hard time typing my comments as she has such leaky eyes. Our keyboard will need a good drying out. paw hugs and human hugs, Savvy, TKS and Mom L

  34. Kitties Blue

    Dearest Sister Precious, This distresses us so much, as we do not think a 14-year-old is really old. And now that you have gotten that off your chest, we hope you decide to fight hard and stay around a whole lot longer. We will start one of our 24/7 purr-a-thons for you, and Mom will be praying daily. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    We are grateful that Ann keeps our Mom updated till we return. So sorry you are not feeling good Precious. Our Mom has pulled a few of us from bad sick spells with CLEAR pedialyte. It does not contain the bad sweetener xylitol and it recently helped Teak over a really bad patch. Mom uses those small med plungers to slowly get us drinking again. We kitties can withdraw and get dehydrated very quickly when not feeling well. Mom took a bottle in for our vets approval and she did OK it. You sure have a ton of purrz from your furends, please except ours as we care about you and hope you will be feeling better very soon Precious. Love and purrz from the CatStreetBoyz, woofie, ICE and Mom Hollu

  61. FiveSibesMom

    Dear sweet Precious…I’m glad to hear that you are feeling good right now and so sorry you had a bad spell. We’ll keep soft woos, mews, and prayers going that you have many, many more strong good days. You are indeed precious, and we are so glad we have been able to get to know you through Blogville. Hugs to you and your family. Always.

  62. John Bellen

    Precious, I know what it is like to lose a cat at 14; that is too young an age to go, so you hang on, improve, feel better and stay around a lot longer. I know it can be very tough when so many bad things hit at once. Often, it seems as if some things are under control and then something unexpected or unknown hits. You have the best care possible there and plenty of love; those will keep you safe and happy for as long as possible.

  63. Kitty Cat Chronicles

    Sister Precious, we are sending you purrs and prayers galore! Sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling well. Keep us updated, and we will keep the purrs and prayers coming. We know you’re a strong fighter though!

  64. Caspersmom

    Precious we are so sorry to hear you are not feeling up to par and not feeling well. You have shared a lot of joy with your family and we hope it will continue on. You have our love, hugs and prayers. God Bless.
