URGENT PURRS NEEDED!!!!

Update
Deb talked to Dr. Smith tonight and said that Charlie Cat woofed down four plates of food this afternoon. Dr. Smith doesn't know how he will do on the fluids, however, it is 50-50 right now as far as kidney function. His numbers from the blood work were not good and he had lost 1.5 pounds. Thank you so much for all the purrs and purrayers... we took him in hoping we would at least have a few years with him. But in only a few short days, he has touched our lives and our hearts.

This is Auntie Deb blogging for ML:
Charlie Cat had to be rushed to the Houston Cat Hospital to see Dr. Smith today. He is not drinking or eating normally. His urine tests show that his kidneys are not functioning properly. I think this is because he was left alone for a while until ML and I were told about him.

He had been living with his Mommy (who was a neighbor of ML and Charley's) since he was a kitten. His Mommy had to be taken to the hospital and then to a hospice. No one was told to go and take care of Charlie Cat for a week or so. His Mommy didn't have any family beside Charlie Cat. She has dementia and was unable to articulate anything about him. ML got an urgent phone call while I was with her and we immediately went over to the apartment and picked up Charlie Cat. Unfortunately, no one knows how long he was left on his own. Dr. Smith thinks that this is what has caused his kidneys to malfunction. They are giving him lots of fluids and running many tests on him. Fortunately, Charlie Cat has a strong heart.

ML and Charley are so worried about their new baby, as am I. We fell in love with Charlie Cat instantly. I told ML to rest and that I would fill everyone in on the situation.

Please send your very hardest purrs and prayers to Charlie Cat, as well as ML and Charley. I will keep you updated as I get more information.
PRAYING AND PURRING FOR CHARLIE CAT!
WE LOVE YOU SWEET BABY!

peggy and The Cats said...

We're purring that Charlie will respond as well as Babe did. Her first tests were labeled acute, but she came around with the fluids and is now considered chronic. The sub-q's 3 times a week have done wonders. We hope for the same for Charlie.
