    We have absolutely NO idea, she was never sick, and we were sure she would live longest of all our cat-family...!
    It's hard to accept.....
    This afternoon she asked to go into the garden with Inka, and there she was playing a bit with Inka, chasing fallen leafs...

    She is't eating much again.... . I'm afraid she is getting downhill again....
    Her second injection with cortisone is't even 2 weeks ago...
    I wonder if it is good to let her have a third one already??
    She is not in any pain, so it is so hard to decide this; if you wouldn't know how sick she is, you would never believe this

    My thoughts are with you and Zazou.
    Have you asked your vet about an appetite stimulant, other than the injection?

    Lut, sending hugs and prayers.

    As cats4ever says, you can always ask if there is another appetite stimulant that dear Zazou can take.

    Thank you all so very much!!
    This is such a hard time for us...., last night I cried myself to sleep
    Zazou is such a sweet cat...... . She has a very special and loud "pure", and she starts doing this everytime we touch or even only pet her....
    Oh my, we will miss that so much....

    Yes we asked the vet about an other appetite stimulant, but he answered that an injection is the only medicine that can turn her appetite instantly......
    Poor sweetheart.... .
    Her appetite is't gone completely yet; some days she beats nothing at all, and the following day her appetite is better...
    I hope we will recognize the sign that it's been enough for her, and to let her cross the bridge

    My thoughts are with Zazou, you and all your family. I know how hard it is to see her getting weaker. You know cats don't always show if they suffer, but I hope you can keep comfortable and painfree a while yet.

    Dear Zazou is still here!! She is still eating! It is't much, but this way doesn't get dihydrated.
    Her weight is very low, but she added 100gram since she got the diagnose!
    She loves so much to be in the garden, so we let her do that as much and as long as she desires... ! She loves to play with fallen leafs, and she found a super good spot to rest outside: on the gardenchair, on the patio! Even when it rains she is there, because the patio is partially under the roof!

    Oh, Zazou, what a good report to read about you! That is so great that you love to eat and to play with the autumn leaves in the garden!

    We are sending along more warm loving thoughts and wishes and prayers.

    and {{{{{HUGS}}}}} and ~~~~PURRRS~~~~,
    Pat and Poppy and Sparkler
