Charlie Taylor Update

Went to get Charlie Taylor and left without him.
He is not in good health. Jessica recommended having the heart specialist look at him later today, she said his heart doesn't sound normal to her. His kidney function is bad and there is still fluid in his lungs. He has lost weight, his little spine is sticking out and he feels very fragile.

We went back to visit with him and he let out a huge "MEOW" when he saw us... he definitely knows who we are.
Hopefully I can bring him home later or maybe the time Deb and I shared with him was it?
I am very, very sad but will accept whatever happens because I feel lucky to get to know Charlie Taylor at all.
Hopefully there will be a bit more to his story.

We are so sorry that Charlie Taylor has had such a rough life. We are purring that this works out the best for him!

ML said...

One thing to remember, Charlie Taylor is over fifteen, which Dr. Smith said is rare for his breed. He was well cared for up until his original Mommy got sick, then he spent several weeks with no food or care.
It is hard for me to accept I may not have him very long, if at all now.
Thank you for all the purrs and purrayers and Reiki and support...
Love & Purrs,
ML

We are sending tons of purrs and prayers to Charlie - we hope he is able to get better. It is so sad that his owner got sick and couldn't take care of him, but it is wonderful that you cared enough to try and help him out. I am sure he appreciates everything you are doing for him, the fact that he knows and remembers you makes me think he knows you are trying your best to get him the help he needs.

Oh, this is terrible. For Charlie and for you. When you're sick, you just want to be home. But sometimes that isn't possible. We know you're doing the best you can for Charlie.

We are so sad to hear this. Maybe he is at the end of his road - when it would be maybe nicer for him to come home to cross to the bridge surrounded by love instead of the VETs office????
But we will send all our purrs for him to get better and stay with us a bit longer!

We know you want the very best for him, and he knows that too. It'd be one of our dearest wishes come true if he could go home with you guys, 'oos it's obvious he knows that you're his family.
