I need caring advice from someone holistic-minded - Page 2  

post #31 of 49
Although I am not a fan of cats being put on a vegan diet, I do know people that have done this and their cats are fine. BUT this cat is already health compromised and besides trying to bump up his immune system, this cat needs protein and nutrients found in meats. I always tell people that if you put my cats out in my garden- they won't go munch a radish, but instead will chase a mouse, hunt it down and eat it- Pretty clear to me what type of food they are supposed to eat in order to be the best they can be

I don't eat meat, and I have never had any meat products in my house. Until I got my kittens. Now I have cat food, kibbles, and half a roast chicken in the fridge! I've also learned how to cook meat, which is something I knew I would have to do when I made the decision to invite critters into my home.

No matter what you personally believe, you can not force your beliefs onto an animal that has no understanding of human ethics and morals.

This thread makes me really sad. The thought of confining my kittens to a small room to wallow in their own waste, whilst listening to them suffer, and watching them slowly die when I knew I could help them is just beyond my comprehension.

As someone else said, I would move heaven and earth for my boys. If one of them was sick, hell I'd eat an entire cow if it would help.

I was just thinking, Starke is only 45 minutes away from here. If you were willing to drive, I could refer you to 2 excellent vets here that are willing to make payment arrangements with you. The last time I had to take Dori to the the vet I paid $80, that was for an exam, 2 xrays, and her asthma medication.

FriskysMom...I cannot imagine a more generous offer than Tanya's.
Send her a Private Message & tell her how to reach you.
You can trust her...

I don't know - I hate to say it guys, but I rather think we may have lost this one, much as it pains me to say it.

Wow! Great! And here I was trying to find a rescue group that might be able to step in here. Friskysmom, where are you? Help has arrived! Can you take it for the sake of your cat?

To be honest, I am rooting for the idea that Friskysmom is simply a troll and poor little Frisky with his absolutely mismanaged condition doesn't even exist.

This would help me sleep better at night.

That and the fact that I don't have to continually read the unanswered posts of my fellow wonderful TCS'ers so graciously offering help and sound advice...
This is the piece that absolutely makes me mad

Friskysmom: Think of this cat. Not yourself. Take the help you have been given and get this poor creature some immediate HELP.

I'm wondering why Friskysmom didn't consider herself a failure to say , hey I need help, hey, I'm overwhelmed, hey, I don't know what to do , yet she seems to somehow consider it a failure if she can't heal her cat herself. It's not failure to say, hey, I need help here- it's the better part of wisdom. Friskysmom, you said that you would do whatever it took, give whatever remedy you had to , go to the health food store and buy whatever was needed , so why the reluctance when you've been offered so much help? I hope this isn't a case of, " no one is helping me , they're all concerned about my cat but not me so I'm just going to do nothing about my cat..so there." You've had several, very kind offers, of support from fellow members, now your cat would like to have some help too. Enough said.

Exactly, I couldn't agree more.

I have to say, that's what I'm beginnng to think too. Especially after a post in the lounge telling us we're all killing our cats due to wearing purfume. Talk about irony.

You know, I really hope you guys are right as well. She has logged in since we have all replied to this thread and has said nothing. I truly hope there is not a cat locked in her bathroom. If there is a Frisky all we can do is pray that he doesn't spend the rest of his sweet little life suffering. I hope that someone is able to come through for him, and would like to think that his mom would be the one who does that. He has no choice but to trust that she will give him the care and the love that he requires. If she is not going to do that, then maybe she should consider giving him to someone who would.

We have done everything that we can do here and I don't think that anything else we say is going to change the situation. I honestly don't know why people come here looking for help but then refuse everything that we have to offer. I don't understand why people own pets if they aren't going to take responsibility for them. Pets are not a piece of property. They require love, attention, care, and just as important the knowledge of what they need to keep them healthy and safe for as long as they are with us. You may not have all of the knowledge needed from the beginning, but you definately learn along the way.

If it is bogus, do you suppose she/he is sitting there reading all our responses and having a chuckle?

If it is not bogus, it seems nothing is being done and she hasn't responded so perhaps we should all just say nothing more and see what happens.
post #48 of 49
I agree.
post #49 of 49
Everything that needed to be said has been said. This thread is now closed. If the original poster wants it opened again to respond, she simply needs to contact a moderator who will do so.

Thanks for those of you who cared enough to respond to this situation and make it a valuable teaching tool for others-
