Ronnylicious

Mum took the White Light in for a check up today. We have been concerned about his health for a little while now. He had started getting really quiet, and had a couple of bouts of vomitting and diarrhea. He has a tiny little frame, but a big bulbous belly. The vet report doesn't sound too promising. We wormed him again today in the hope it is a worm burden. If not, things mentioned included FIP, and problems with his heart, kidneys or digestive system. Tests are possible, but are expensive and tricky. The vet said that she didn't believe he was thriving.At the moment, we're playing a game of wait and see. We're rather heartbroken, but are praying for a miracle. We love you, Ronnylicious.

Oh no - we're keeping fingers crossed. We knew a little kitty who died from FIP recently and sure hope that's not it.

Ronnie, we had a quick look at your old posts and we just KNOW you have the strenght to make it. You've come a long way and maybe you're a bit exhausted, but we know you can pull through!

We're crossing our paws and hoping for worms (I know, I know, but the alternatives don't sound as good). Was the decline somewhat recent? Because (and I hate to say this) that could be due to an illness from the little ones you just took in last week spreading to the big kittens (or worms doing the same. Did we mention we're hoping for worms?)

P.S. Ronnilicious, your foster momma loves you very much! Please let that be a comfort to you while you are not feeling good!

Ronnylicious, we just can't bear the thought of you being sick. We know how strong you are and how you've come so far. We all love you so much. Our purr motors are all on and Grete is wagging her tail in circles really hard too. Sweetie boy we won't stop until we know you are going to be ok.

I am praying for werms! Ronnylicious, I am sending my very, very best purrs for you to get better.

Sparkle said...

Oh no! Sad that Ronnie isn't doing better. Am sending him healing purrs in the hopes that it helps him grow stronger. I'm glad to see so many other kitties joining in. Maybe we CAN make a miracle happen!
