A Sick Kitty and a Midnight Run

We took a break from our scheduling on Friday,

and ran off on a whim (which I am wont to do…) to adopt a certain homeless kitty that my daughter absolutely had to have.

But the kitty was sick, and spent the entire day we had her hiding under the bed refusing to eat or drink. 🙁

We fed her kitty formula with a syringe every two hours all day, but she lost it ALL late last night.  We decided to take our dehydrated kitty back to the shelter where we found her so she could get well.

The girls and I made a mid-night run an hour and a half away to get our sick kitty some help.

We drove through the city…

with our sick kitty crying.  🙁

The good news is our little kitty is doing much better this morning.  She received some fluids, and started eating.  She will stay at the shelter for observation for a week or so, and then, if all goes well, will come home with us again.

What will a mother not do for her sweet girls?!?

    beautiful, diane. a mother will do whatever she can (and often so many things she never thought she could) for her children (and her stepchildren)!

    love you.

    I am so glad that the kitty is getting better. Does it have a name yet? I lost my last kitty on June 16th of this year. She was almost 18 years old and had kidney failure. Due to my health problems and financial reasons, we are waiting for a few more months before we get a new kitty. My lap feels so empty without a kitty on it. Our dog trys to make up the difference, but a 100 pound dog does not fit on a lap! 🙂

      I’m so sorry to hear about your loss, Debbie. I pray you can get a new kitty soon. It won’t bring her back, but I think it helps to love again. We lost our puppy over a year ago. It was terrible. I felt a little guilty because it was so soon. but we went right out and bought another puppy. I think it really helped the kids and me too!

      God bless you!
