Tough, emotional weekend...

I cannot believe what has been going on around here. After bringing Emma to the vet for feeling sick, the next day Quincy and Mocha became ill (vomiting, diarrhea) and ended up bringing both to the vet on Saturday. They weren't really sure what caused the illness but their basic vitals were fine and they sent Quincy home with medication and decided to give Mocha a steroid shot since she had previous IBD issues. Well, Mocha has been a total zombie after yesterday. Very lethargic, almost depressed looking. She's been drinking and only will eat her fish flakes and nothing else. Quincy and Emma are doing fine now. I am beside myself about Mocha and am hoping it's something as simple as a reaction to the steroid shot. I was so hesitant on the doctor giving her the steroid shot but I agreed. *sigh* Mocha is 13 1/2, not a young one anymore, I realize that, but I am hoping she pulls through this.

I know I've been absent lately but I've had a lot going on and to add all three cats getting sick has pushed me over the edge. I'd love it if you all could send a little prayer for Mocha. She could really use it now.

I'll keep you all posted and we all thank you!!

Poor thing- I am saying a prayer for her as soon as my fingers stop. Had a sick one recently and resorted to meat baby food- very important to keep them eating and drinking. Best wishes- XOXO-

I'm so sorry that Mocha is doing so poorly! I, too, will say a prayer for her. I sure hate to see your babies sick!

On a happier note, I just had my son pick the winner of my giveaway and he picked your name! I wasn't going to tell you until I posted it tomorrow but I thought you could use some cheerier news right about now!!! :-) When you get a chance, email me your address. My email is threebears@astound.net.

Prayers for Mocha,
MJ

Dexter was really sick last week too. Flu symptoms and fever. It lasted a day and a half and then he was fine.

I hope Mocha bounces back soon. Hugs and healing energy to you both!

Kritter Keeper said...

prayers to you and your pet family! i know a vet that does that as well...just give a shot of steroid when they don't really know what else to do. instead of a shot, they could have given pills that are not as extreme. i love kitties and all animals...such a heart ache to see them under 100%.

has anyone mentioned maybe renal failure yet? kidneys doing ok?
I'll pray for the babies for sure. Hang in there sweetie.

Caroline said...

You poor babies, all 4 of you, it must be such a worry when all 3 of them are ill.
I will pray for Mocha, just tell her she is not old yet, I know a cat that is still going strong at 21, so there, she has plenty to look forward yet.
Hope she is getting better soon, that will take a lot off your mind!

Hannah said...

Awwwww, I am sending lots of positive thoughts for Mocha! Poor little kitty. I will be keeping you and Mocha in thoughts, she will be just fine! Hang in there!

Chatelaine said...

Life with Kaishon said...

I am praying for Mocha right this second. I know when our babies are sick it is the worst feeling in the world, right?

Cat with a Garden said...

Oh noes, poor ladycat Mocha! Please get better! We're purring for you. Surely the steroid shot was much too take and has weakened you a little, but it will make you feel better in the long run. And your poor mom. She has to trust the decisions of the vet, so we hope it was the right decision of him.
Many many sweet and gentle purrs,
Siena & Chilli

Chrissy said...

Ahhh,poor wee things!! Not to worry they will all be fine,cheer up....I know,go bake something!!! 0x0x0x0x

fairmaiden said...

It's so hard when our 'kids' are sick. But DO NOT blame yourself, that is one of the worst mistakes a mommie can make. It is NOT your fault. And if thats too hard to do, forgive yourself, and move forward. Remember we have a Father who loves us and our babies...He cares so much and for even your sweet kitties that are so dear to your heart. He cares! He heals, He comforts, He loves. I will say a prayer for all of you ox Fairmaiden

C-ingspots said...

jlpreppy said...

I am sending you a prayer for your kitties. Take care.

Debbie said...

I am so sorry your beloved pets are sick and my prayers will go out every day for them. I have a diabetic dog and some days it can be hard...he can be up and down. I have also lost many pets over the years and they are truly just like children to us. I am sure they will be on the mend soon...big hugs and kisses to them all.

Patti said...

Oh Michelle- my heart goes out to you and the fur babies. That is soooo hard. I hope that Mocha has rallied at this point and is on the mend as well as Quincy and Emma. Take care of yourself too and let us know what's going on.

jen said...

My prayers are with you all!!
