    Poor Storm! I didn't realize he was so ill. Prayers that you and your vet can find some small thing to perk him up for a bit. Glad he is still cuddling, though. Love is a good sign.


    For Radar - my Oscar LOVES plain yogurt, even no-fat. The other two could care less. When you can, why not pick up a small container and see if he licks it off your finger?

    If not, it's good on a baked potato...

    HUGS and every good thought and PT prayer for your babies.

    Tracey, you sure do have your hands full. You can count on my prayers and positive thoughts that you will be able to get all of this under control and all your babies will be healthy once again. I feel for you!!

    When it rains it pours, doesn't it? I am so sorry about all you and your kitties are going through right now. I know how you feel about Storm, my Mac is getting up in years and is getting skinny as well. He can still jump and play when he wants to and his appetite is fine, but I know that he won't be getting any younger or more spry. It's tough when a good cat that you've had for many years, starts to show their age. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your crew, I hope they all start feeling better soon.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    We are saying our prayers and sending our love and warm energies to Storm, too. We are glad that you and he still love to cuddle together in bed.

    Tracy I am so sorry to hear about Storm and also did not realize he was having such issues. You have all my best thoughts for things to improve and get somewhat normal again. A houseful of kittens is challenging and your situation at the moment has to be difficult. Lots of hugs to you and all your furry babies.

    New Update

    Thanks everyone. The kittens seem to be doing much better already. As of last night Radar still had diarrhea. My vet told me to try a 1/4 tablet of Immodium A-D for only two days. I tried it yesterday morning and it seemed to make him worse so I decided not to give him any more of it. So far so good with him this morning. Every day is challenging when trying to give everyone their Lysine. This morning went much smoother than yesterday. I can't catch Colby to give him his eye drops so he won this battle. His eyes seem to have cleared up on their own though. Maybe it's due to the Lysine.

    On a much sadder note. Storm's back legs are only getting worse. Last night while he was trying to pee in the litter box he almost fell over. If he even tries to run he immediately flops over and he looks like a fish out of water. I just can't sit back and watch and act like there's nothing wrong with him. I also can't wait until he can't even walk any more or even use the litter boxes any more. I've thought about this very long and hard and I've had to make the difficult decision to let him go. I've decided to let him go some time this Sunday. I e-mailed my vet about this and I don't need to make an appt. for this. She won't be able to do it though because she's become allergic to the medication that's used for euthanasia. I'm hoping to be able to take this Fri. and the following Mon. & Tues. off so that I can spend some extra time with him and so I can go through the greiving process before I have to go back to work. I can't type any more right now because I'm getting too upset.

    I am so very sorry.

    Hugs to you and very gentle pets to Storm. God bless you both.

    Oh Tracy - I'm so sorry. I had no idea that Storm was so sick. What you're describing sounds like what I just went thru with Sherbie. I know you're heartbroken, just as I was, but you are doing the very kindest thing for him that you can. Give him a gentle little kiss from me please.

    Hoping that the rest of your crew is soon back to par.
