Please pray for Mousie. She is very unwell.
This is the email I have received from her owners*:
I am very sorry to tell you that Mousie is not very well.
On Sunday, she stopped eating and drinking, was very lethargic, and was vomiting white foam. We took her to the vet, who took blood tests, and kept her in for rehydration.
We got the blood tests back today. She has got hyperthyroidism. It may have already affected her liver and kidneys, but we don't know yet. (She is much perkier today.)
She has got Zantac to help her tummy, and pills for her thyroid, which she has to have twice a day, mashed up in her food. We are currently syringing her food into her mouth, but hopefully in the next couple of days, she will recover enough to start eating by herself.
She will be on this regime for two weeks, when we'll see if she's improving. If she is, then she'll carry on with the treatment for another two weeks. If she isn't improving, then the vet recommends that we discontinue treatment and have her put to sleep.
If you'd like to visit her, then you are very very welcome - I know how much you love her and how much she loves you. She's not on any special food, but we are warming her normal food up with hot water and her pills.
The vet nurse said she was the sweetest cat they'd had in for ages.
*a few of you will be aware that Mousie is not strictly mine, I babysit her when her beans go away. I have been looking after her for almost 14(!) years. I will be going to visit her tomorrow, and every day or eve that I can. Please pray.
