Here we are at Mancat Monday but we’re not going to be Mancatting today. Nope, instead we’re asking you for purrs, prayers and Power of the Paw for our Sister Zoe. Poor Zoe is unwell and it came on rather quickly.
You probably remember her posts about her food bowls. Well, Zoe had been cleaning up at least one of her two bowls of food at breakfast and at dinner. Then, what seemed like all of a sudden, she stopped eating. When she doesn’t eat the Dad feeds her so that’s what he did.
Things really went downhill on Saturday, she threw up ten times throughout the day and she was having litter box difficulties. Since the Dad can’t go many places due to the Covid thing (he’s high risk) the Mom took Zoe to our Animal Emergency Center. Sadly it was packed with many terribly sick critters, but after waiting seven hours she finally got seen. Of course with the Covid thing the Mom couldn’t go in with her.
Zoe was hospitalized. Zoe was dehydrated and had some bloody diarrhea. She was on fluids and IV antibiotics. Her blood work was good, nothing showed on X-rays and her urinalysis was also good. Yesterday they did an ultrasound and the news isn’t good at all, they are fairly certain it is lymphoma. Of course the only way to know is with a surgical biopsy. Given her surgical history we’re not sure she would survive that. Right now we’ve opted for medical management which will likely retrigger her diabetes. She will be transferred to the care of her regular Internal Medicine Vet.
Thanks for all of your well wishes for Zoe, we all sure miss her. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
