Good thoughts for Grayson the Volvo Cat

Post by abscate » Thu Apr 23, 2020 5:01 am

My little 10 year old Russian Blue mix is recovering from surgery on Monday and Tuesday

It’s Caitlin’s favorite cat and she is stuck in the UK and can’t see him.

He is doing well but can use your good thoughts

❤️

Well he took a bad turn and it looks like an end of life celebration tomorrow.

I let my little furry friends into my heart and even though they hurt occasionally, they lift me far higher than the occasional fall

My poor daughter in the UK wont get to say goodbye, worst bit.

Abscate I'm so sorry one of your fur babies is seriously ailing. My prayers have been with you. When I loose a fur baby, i don't take it well either. They are gifts from God! June

Well, he survived his third surgery , with a 5% of success on each one , last night.

I’ve cried more tears over this, I have none left for Volvo’s with automatics.

Keep fighting, my little man.

He is still hanging in there, eating amd drinking more now.

We know he could relapse , but are still hopeful.

Keeping my fingers crossed he'll be fine. My sister just bought a Russian Blue, smart little buggers they are indeed 😃

Thanks for the positive thoughts. We still don't know if he has used up his lives but we are still hopeful even to bring him home for another 6 months for when Caitlin finishes Grad School.

Well, little man came home last night

The two other cats dontlike the new intruder, but the dogs follow him around with big waggers and licks. Grayson craves attention so he is in heaven. One more week and his sutures come out, and then we will hopefully adjust to his new life for some more time.

Special diet from here on out.
