Update on Joey

UPDATE: We just returned from the vet a few minutes ago. Joey is very anemic, dehydrated & has some jaundice. The vet said it could be (insert big word here) a blood parasite, which is treatable or something else (didn't say what) that isn't. He gave him an antibiotic shot & fluids, along with a dose of liquid vitamins. He sent home the vitamins & some antibiotic capsules & said hopefully this will work. I waited until he was done before I told him I couldn't pay him today, so he let me charge it. Please pray it's the blood parasite & that the antibiotics knock it out so that Joey can get well. Thank you all.

Joey took a bad turn last night & is barely hanging on. I called the vet this morning & he was going out on an emergency call & would let me know when he was back in the office, but that it would be around noon. I just got a call & he's pushed it to 1:15. Please pray that Joey can hold on & that he can be healed from whatever is making him sick.

This is Mama taking over the blog. I'm asking for purrs & purrayers for Joey....for the last week & a half, he has been eating very little & losing weight. I've tried stinky goodness, baby food & even changed the crunchies & nothing is working. The only thing I can get him to eat is Temptations & not very many of them. He was doing a little better yesterday but today he has vomited twice. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks.

Merry Christmas

We apawlogize for not blogging & commenting, things around here have been....shall we say strained, for the last few weeks.

But we wanted to wish efurrybuddy a Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays. And we want to thank our furiends that sent us Christmas cards. We also have to apawlogize for not sending out cards, Mama said that time & green papers got away from her.

Hopefully after the holidays Mama will let us write a big, long, boring post about what's been going on. Till then, please don't forget us....
