Bad news on the feline front
Both Max and Frank went to the vet yesterday. Frankie's been sick, throwing up once or twice a day for almost week. He's lost a lot of weight, too. Max has also lost weight, and isn't eating much. That's not new, though. He's still biting his fur off also, but that's not new, either.

Anyway, the vet called this morning with the blood test results. Frankie has a high white cell count, and is going to be on antibiotics. Max's results were more serious. He has pancreatitis, and has to take steroids. It could also be a symptom of something more serious, like pancreatic cancer. I hope not, the thought of losing Max is just horrible. He's been my baby for 18 years.

I'm so sorry! I hope it's not something more serious. *crosses fingers and sends good thoughts your way*

Thanks. It's just so hard when the little guys get sick. I'm so worried.


Hopefully it'll all turn out to be treatable.

From your lips to God's ears, as they say.

Thanks. *Hugs back*

Hoping for the best, sweetie. *hugs*

Thanks, Suz. *Hugs back*

*pets* I'll be thinking of them and you.

Thank you, sweetie. *Hugs*

I'm very behind on my flist reading, as the fact that I'm just now seeing this post shows. Hopefully by now Frankie's better. As for Max, well, I'll think good thoughts and keep my fingers crossed, but at 18, things are going to start happening, and you have to start getting prepared for it. (I speak from personal experience with my last two cats.)

In a happier vein, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

Max has always been peculiar, so I'm not surprised that something is wrong. The tumor the vet found (next post, don't know if you saw that one) doesn't bode well. We'll just do our best to keep him happy and comfortable. And if it looks like he's suffering, we'll do what we have too. I hate the idea of putting him to sleep, but I'd rather that then him being in pain. My poor baby.
