Quick Spot Update


Still don’t have our Spottie boy back. Maybe tomorrow. He did look and act a lot better today than he did on Saturday. We got him purring: purring so hard you could see it. Then he got super worn out and started to fall asleep with his eyes open. Still not eating, however he has pooped (nutrition has been given via IV) so at least his bowels are working. His fur is clean, not all greasy and clumpy, which for me is always a sign of a very sick cat. No sign of infection, his incision is healing well and no fever. We won’t know if he has cancer or not until Friday, most likely.

Thank you all for your support, I really do need it and appreciate it.

  1. I’ve had many pets, both cat and dog, rabbits, white rats, even a calf or two. This all sounds very good. Eating of course, is important once off the IV’s but seems he may be out of his woods and going home. Fingers still crossed. xo

      • There is no doubt your fears are natural. Our pets are our family members! I had my two doggies tonight sitting on there sand pile, barking at the tv thru a window. Really just saying hello….. Again! But what a funny sight. Especially Bella, at 120 pounds! Hah, she could’ve just jumped thru and sat on the couch. I’ll keep you in my thoughts, hoping all is well. xxx

  2. Your posts about Spot have caused me to give my two cats even more attention, as I realize how devastated I would be for anything to happen to either of them. You are far stronger than I. You’re handling your pain, your fears, far better than I could. I salute you and am keeping Spot in my thoughts. Know I care. Hugs

  3. My late and ex had a Cat Prayer that I might have mentioned before.. He was irreligious in all other respects but firmly believed in heaven for cats. I’m saying it for Spot now.

  4. Just as I was pulling up your post, I glanced up and realized RC Cat was on the desk intently staring at me – like “waiting on new of Our friend Spot.”
    They know. When a even a small sparrow is not in his expected place in the sky, it is noted by some. The realm is still in crossed paw mode.
    HRH nodded at your news and said “Improved coat and pooping is a signal to his Staff that he knows of their concern and apprciates their dedication and care. We are requesting residents of the Realm to send solidarity in transitional times: seeking peace and comfort for Our beloved friend, Spot, and the staff who he has spoken so highly of and blessed with his presence.

  5. I saw a post that said “Spot” in it, so I did a search to see if Spot was a cat. We had a cat named Spot too. I didn’t see any more posts about Spot after this one. So sorry.

    Our “Spot the Cat” was a girl.
