    My mom's cat - Shydey (a/k/a Shiney)

    Shiney is about 13 years old. He is the surviving one of a pair of Lilac Point kitties that my sister had. She died in 2006 and Pyka, the one cat, was sadly euthanised due to cancer just over a year later.

    Shiney went to the vet today as he became lethargic and quiet yesterday afternoon. He hadn't eaten or drank much, and hadn't used his litter box - or any other part of the house.

    Today he had a urine sample taken and two blood panels. He got sub-q fluids and a vitamin B shot. Results will be in tomorrow.

    When Mom got Shiney home she fed him and he just gobbled the food right up. He's sleeping right now.

    Would sure appreciate some good thoughts and prayers that whatever Shiney has is very treatable.

    So, he didn't eat, he went to the vet, he came home and ate? Oh yeah that sounds about right for a "C - A - T" just drive the humans crazy!

    Seriously, prayers from RI that all is well and if anything shows up it is easily treatable. Since he had sub q fluids, that means he was dehydrated, wonder why? But once they get like that, they feel so icky they won't eat.

    Do let us know what the results of the testing are!

    Prayers for dear Shiney that all is well or will be well soon.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
