Update on Sky
by: Andria

I know now that Sky is not going to recover. She is on Prednisone and when that becomes in-effective and she becomes worse, I will have to have her put to sleep. She has diminished so much already and only comes out of the closet when she eats and to use the litter box.. . . She wont lay on the bed anymore with me she gets aggitated and starts whipping around her tail and just wants down, to go back in the closet. I really have already lost most of her. This whole process has been slow and very painful.One of my friends told me I should just go ahead and put her to sleep, but I dont think its time yet. When she gets worse I will but I dont think its time yet.

Im sorry
by: Nancy

I feel so bad for you and your little girl. Is there any way she possibly could have sustained a head injury while out roaming? I hope she can recover and that you two will have many more years together. Btw she looks identical to my boy Chocwa, fur and all!

Thank You Beatrice
by: Andria

Hello Beatrice and thanks so much for your comments. Today sky jumped up on the bed for the first time since this all started. I am still giving the 5 MG of Prednisone every 12 hours. I had it spelled all wrong in my initial posting. Sky is more alert,purring, groomimg and grooming me. . . lol
I love this site, I just got finished reading the articles about The Siamese history. I find it very interesting and Donna Arnold said it best when she said, "Once you have been ’owned’ by a Siamese you would not wish for any other cat."
I had to laugh when I saw this because that is exactly the way I feel. Thanks agin for your comments and they story of you and your boy. How blessed!!! He went from 3 yrs to 11 years. I hope you atleast have another 11 years with him.
Thanks so much,

Andria

Oh dear, I am crying as I am reading this. It is truly so sad. It is difficult when an animal suffers, but if you can keep doing what you are doing, then each day is a bonus.

Many years ago, my Lilac Blue Burmese boy got away for 9 days. When he came back he couldn't breath. I took him to the vet who sent him to the University Veterinary hospital. He was there for weeks and 2,500 Euros later, he was let out. I was told that he had renal failure and respiratory problems and that it was only a matter of time. He was 3 years of age. Well he is now 11 years of age and I have just loved him to bits all these years and I think that is what pulled him through. Cats, at least pedigrees, can live up to 18 years and longer, so all you can do is your best and keep giving him all the love and security he wants. Maybe there is some pathological problem and that is why he left as he didn't want you to be around and to see him when he is ill. Isn't it great that you got him back? My advice is to keep him in, feed him well and give him all the love in the world and after that it is in the lap of the Gods. Cats are great survivors.

Hope this helps.

Beatrice from Ireland.

Thanks so much
by: Andria

Thanks so much for the replies and prayers. It really helps me to communicate with people who understand the depth of love we have for our babies, that is what my Sky is to me, she is my baby. I’m happy to hear that someone was able to keep her baby happy and healthy for two years using Pretizone. I will contact her and ask what else she did. Thank YOU so much for that info.
From what I understand it varies from cat to cat, some may last 6 months while others last longer or even a shorter period of time.
The vet tech said her past cat lasted 6 months and it had lymphoma . . . I’m not sure if I spelled that right. I prayed last night for her and today Sky was ok considering. I actually heard her purring when I woke up and was so happy I cried. She licked my hand for a long, long time and I think she knows how much I love her.
Thanks again for all the replies and please keep sky in your prayers.

So sad...
by: Amy F.

Oh Andria, I am crying as I read this! I am so very sorry you are going through this! We have 3 Siamese and they are our children! I dread the day something ever happens to any of them...I also won't know what to do! But I have to say that I am a big believer of not letting an animal suffer, no matter how hard it might be to say goodbye. The day will come when you'll know... I will say a prayer for you and your precious kitty!

I am so sorry
by: Lynn

I am so sorry about you precious baby girl. Will you please contact this person...

Her name is Meg

her email is:

This sounds like something she went through with one of her cats. But she kept her cat happy and healthy for many years with the type of medication you are giving your kitty.
