Charlie Taylor Thursday Update

I choose to leave Charlie Cat at the vets yesterday so the cardiac specialist could re-examine him. This time he did find a heart problem, just as Dr. Smith & Jessica had suspected (it was sneaky and didn't show up on the first two ultrasounds). And it is treatable with drugs.

Bottom line, Charlie Taylor gets to come home tomorrow afternoon and Dr. Smith said he may have at least a month left, maybe a year. But we will have some time with him. Yay!!! I'll take it!!!

Wonderful! You know, when Babe was diagnosed with CRF they gave her weeks, maybe a month. That was last July 21,08. So they don't always know what will happen or when. Lots of love to you and Charlie cat.

Every time I see an update I look in trepidation. Charlie is a fighter, and he is comming home for some love.

That is good news.

We're glad to learn Charlie will get to come home to be with his family for a while, whether short or longer term. But whatever does happen, he knows unconditional love didn't end when his previous owner died.
