Misty Update, and Valentine Surprise

Sorry we have not posted that much lately. Mom is very worried about Misty, and she thinks it may be time to help her to the Bridge tomorrow. Misty had a bad night. She has not eaten much any more, hardly drinks and is down to under 6 pounds now, from 7.6 pounds on Dec 31. This morning mom could hardly pull up any skin in order to give her subQ fluids, and for the first time Misty tried to run away while mom gave her the fluids.
Mom has been asking Misty gently if it is time.....

Misty is telling mom not to cry, and that she will be ok. Misty has been looking out from her window seat wondering what she will find at the Rainbow Bridge......

~~~~

On a more happy note, thank you to our friend Lorianna, for such a nice Valentine's surprise she sent us.

There was a bag of primo nip with a feather toy in it! Lorianna knows how I just love feathers!

Aahhh, the smell of primo nip! There is nothing comparable!

Lorianna made us a beautiful handmade card. She is so creative!

Of course, Dumplin' tried to steal my feather away, and play with it all day! Mom was very happy with the chocolates just for her too!

Thanks so much, Lorianna!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

Oh I'm so sad for you. So soon after PooPoo too. We know we will face this moment with Livvie one day. She isn't getting any younger and worries us at times. My thoughts are with you.

I know this is a hard decission. Wizard stopped eating and drinking and was staggering when he walked the day we decided he was telling us it was time to go. We cried all that day and most of the next. Our Dr C. was the was very caring and gentle when we went in.

We will purr for you.

Yes, Misty, there will be many, many friends waiting for you at the Bridge, starting of course with PooPoo, but so many others too! And you will be strong and well again, and be able to watch over your family and purr for them always.

Thinking of you all at this very difficult time.

hi JB, we are sad that Misty is getting ready to go to the bridge. we know that you and your mom will miss her. it's hard for humans to know when creatures are ready to go because the humans don't want the animals to leave them. we animals know that it's okay, but we have to be sensitive for the humans. give Misty lots of love and special purrs for your mom too, okay?

Oh, Misty, I'm so sad that you're not feeling well lately. You lost so much weight, dear.
Your mom, JB, Bear, Dumplin and all of us love you so much. My sister Miami had to be helped crossing the Bridge when she was 18. That was not easy for my parents to let her go then. I wish you all the best, Misty: comfort, peace and love. The gray bed that I sent last month is for you, sweety, rest in there, we care a lot about you.
Kisses and hugs to all

Mickey,Georgia , Tillie said...

JB,Lorriana sent you and Dumplin' a very nice gift. That card is lovely :)
WE are very sorry about Misty, It will be very sad as you lost PooPoo such a short time ago. We are sure Misty will tell you it is time. Not wanting to eat or drink cannot be any fun. Maybe she will have fun with PooPoo.

Deetz said...

Gizmo is on the other side waiting for Misty to show her the way. You know, I think maybe PooPoo knew Misty was sick and needed to go ahead of her, so she could be there for Misty, when it was time. You are a great mommy and they knew how wonderful you are.
