Lenny had been looking pretty good for the past few eeeks. He has been eating tons of wet food, and some KD dry and occasionally his regular dry food he shares with Jimi and Vinnie. He did have two small vomit's over the past week, but seemed to still be ok. He was hiding less under the bed, cleaning Jimi, knocking Vinnie off of the chair, etc.
Suddenly, last night when I came home he was on top fo the bed but was very lethargic. I tried to comfort him and was petting him ever so gently, trying not to cry, and then he jumped up and went under the bed. He did not eat his dinner and so I was resluctant to give him the Antibiotics, etc (called the emergency vet and they said to just give the fluids which I did). He then did perk up a bit and ate a small bowl of wet food. He spent the night on the bed in such a position that i did not want to bother him, so I let him sleep with my wife and I slept of the couch.
This morning he ater some wet food, used the litter box and then went under the bed. I am so upset right now becuase I am going to Big Sur for a 2 day camping trip to try clear my mind and saddle my depression and anxiety. As I had mentioned we are moving to a new apartment next weekend whcih is defenily adding even more stress on to us and our kitties. Jimi has been playing too rough with Lenny this week and really upseting him. I just hope that is not the ole' "cat notices his mate is sick or dieing routine."
Anyway, I found a vet tech I am hiring to administer his fluids and meds this weekend but she can't stay for more than an hour. My friend ad upstairs neightbor who used to look in on our babies whenever we wnet somewhere, just had to send his Princess Nichole Over The Rainbow the other night. I spent 4 hours with Nichole and him, crying and trying to keep it together but it hits too close to home. He is now trying to keep his other boy Elsa comfortable and may not be able to spend time with my boys.
I'm sorry if I rambled here but I am just feeling like I have no luck lately. I know that I have to face up to the reality that Lenny is sick, but I just can't believe that it is happening in the crucical time period when we are going through all of these changes. I am going to Big Sur becuase it is the most beuatiful place on earth, and it's usually the only place where I can relax (besides when I am at home hanging with my babies).
Now, I am very worried that I am not going to be able to enjoy myself, as I will be thinking of Lenny and his brothers the whole time
Please help me in sending the Best Vibes possible to Lenny that this is just a temporary setback and that he will be fine while I am gone and that he will be happy in his new home next week.
I wish everyone here a Happy and Healthy Holidy weekend, and please do cherrish every moment that you have with your kitties
Thanks for listening,
