ofdwolf's Journal, 16 October 2017

Hey FS Warriors,

Been a busy past few weeks between taking a mini vacation last weekend, school semester ending yesterday and pet tragedies.

Back in August we noticed my 15 year old kitty Pumpkin was losing weight and took him to the vets. All the test came back negative so we didn't think to much about it. We got back from South Carolina last Tuesday and on Wednesday he started not eating, which is definitely not Pumpkin like behavior, and started just staying under the bed all the time so we made an appointment for Friday. On Thursday one of our 2 year old cats Han, was straining and unable to pee; we have lost a kitty to this before so we rushed him to the vet and he needed emergency surgery to unblock his bladder and fortunately he is doing great now.

Friday at Pumpkin's appointment everything came back normal so the vet felt it was cancer since he had dropped from 14 pounds to 10 in two months. After hydrating him and failing to get him to eat all week even after steroids we had to put him to sleep today and stop his suffering. It's not often I'm not upbeat and positive but today I am just devastated as he was my constant companion the past decade and a half, sleeping with me every night and helping eat any tuna fish in the house.

Tomorrow I go to in for my hernia surgery so I won't be able to workout the next 4-6 weeks. I plan on just doing some light walking during the recovery period.

The picture is from back in May with Pumpkin and me with Han photo bombing us.

My heart hurts for you, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm happy that Han came through his surgery okay. I've had a kitty go through that too, it was scary. Good luck on your surgery!

Awww...I am a total cat lover and feel sad for you. He looks like he was a sweetie. My cats are my children.

So sorry that happened, I know how hard it is Bill as me always miss our companion be the human or creature. My children(human ones) are gone but my dog and cat sleep with my husband and I every night and even though they are both 14 years old and often have to be helped up I love every moment of the being present. Keeping you in my thoughts with the upcoming surgery.
