Purrs Requested for Starla!
Could I please have some purrs? I don't feel very well at all. Mommy, Daddy, and the other kitties are very worried, and so am I. I had to go to the vet place on Monday, and almost had to go back yesterday. My pee is very yellow because of something called bilirubin. My body's not producing red blood cells right now, and those I do have are bursting. I don't want them to! I'm very sleepy, anemic, and turning somewhat yellow. The doctor thought maybe I have an infection and/or fatty liver disease. She really wants to have me stay at the clinic for intubation (for feeding and fluids) and meds, but that costs too much (unfortunately). Daddy went and got a bag of sub-q fluids for me, and now I understand why Uncle Skylar liked getting them so much! I actually felt like walking out to the big water bowl (in the dining room) to have more water and walking back to my room (the bathroom) after I had the fluids! I am being force-fed canned a/d food by syringe every few hours, because I'm not eating on my own and haven't been eating on my own for a couple days.
Please understand that our family is doing what we think is best for everyone. Thank you all for your love and understanding! We'll keep you posted.
P.S. Mommy's been lying on our bloggie about my age and Rori's for the past few years, and only tonight realized it! I'm 8 years old and Rori (my cousin's half-sister and the alpha of our household) is also 8 years old. Sorry about that!
