Poor, poor pussycat~


I thought she was better, but she's not.

Poor Melly has gone back to the vet after finding blood in her urine once again. This time she got an x-ray, which shows she has a good size mass of kidney stones.


She got a shot and will get antibiotics for another 10 days. We'll feed her prescription food for at least 12 weeks, which is made to disolve the stones.

The doc has a good feeling that this will do the trick, and if not~ she will need surgery.


The surgery would cost close to a grand, so I really hope this special food gets rid of the stones! Not to mention the dinky little 4 pound bag costs $20.


Of course we'd do anything to help her, but geesh.... we ARE strapped for cash right now, as many of us are, eh?


Just be thinking of my sweetie, I'd appreciate it!
Meanwhile, I'm knee deep in my sister's wedding plans and other non-cyber things but I'll try to be in blogland when I can. I miss you all!

I hope your kitty gets all better! She is precious!

I was on Ebay the other day and I saw a dress that I might order for Halloween. It was Scarlet's green dress! They sew it to fit your exact measurments. I'm trying to decide if I can afford to spend that much.

Have a great day!

I will say prayers for Melly and light a candle for her. I know how she feels though as I've had three stones removed myself in the past few years. Not fun at all and even harder on a little thing like she is. Hope the food does the trick. Give her a 'good kitty' rub from all of us. xxoo

I hope your look-alike to our black and white cat is feeling better soon. Of course you'd do what you could to help her, but the surgery price is a lot of money, so I hope the $20 option works too. Good luck, Nikki.
