Izzy

I am taking another blogging day off due to a very sick cat. Izzy our 7 year old cat is suffering from massive seizures and at this point may not make it. Our vet is one of the best in our state and is doing everything she can for our fur baby. She had to put her in a kitty comma to save her. We got to visit Izzy today in kitty hospital and it may be our last chance to be with her.

Our other adopted cat Jackson, misses her and goes around the house crying. So sad to watch.

Thanks for listening and I hope to be back on Friday.

In the meantime, here are a few photos of Izzy helping me craft. Her nickname is trouble. Can you tell?



Here is Izzy sleeping on my laptop. She refuses to be ignored.



She likes the TV off so she can be the center of attention.



Silly cat, she thinks her ears are invisible.



Izzy sleeping on my crafting table. I mean her cat sofa.

My furbabies are my children so I can imagine how devastating this is for you. My heart goes out to you. I lost my littleboy 2 years ago (he was 15 and my constant companion) and I still miss and think about him all the time. I will hold a good thought for you that it will all work out as it should.

Blessings to you,(and a furbaby hug)

My little 13 yr. old Yokie Poo just had surgery on her anal gland for a tumor that fortunately proved to be benign. We have her home now and she is doi9ng very well. Iam so close to her and she to me. I thank the good Lord for her outcome. I know how you feel when it comes to our pets. They are our children.

Linda, I'm so sorry for Izzy's suffering. I'm sure the vet is making her as comfortable as possible. I pray for a miracle outcome, my heart is with you, Bill, Izzy, and Jackson.

Prays go out to you and your family. One of my 2 kitties was sick a few weeks ago and I thought I was going to lose her(she's just a year and the runt of the litter) and I was devastated. They are so much a part of our lives, so much closer to us sometimes than our own family. Huge hugs to you.

Oh Linda, I'm so sorry to hear that Izzy is sick. Praying for a speedy recovery. I would be lost without my little ones. I have 2. One of mine Georgie looks like Izzy and he is always in my room, on top f everything.

Take all the time you need. You are missed but we all understand,

Oh, Linda! My heart goes out to you and your family! While I'm mainly a "dog person", I love all kinds of critters - and kitty cats are no exception! In any case, I know how much our pets can mean to us, and I also know how hard it is to watch them suffer, or grow old, etc. I especially know how gut-wrenching it is to have to make the difficult decisions involved with their health. I'm grateful that God gives us animals that we can have as part of our families - and it very much looks like Izzy is just that. I especially love the picture of "just her ears" showing behind the monitor! Instead of "rabbit ears", you have kitty ears! Thanks for the update - and take all the time you need. Your faithful followers will "be here" for you when you get back!

Lord, I lift up our friend, Linda to you, along with the rest of her family, during this tough time. I pray that you would give them wisdom as to what is in Izzy's best interests. Thank you for leading them to a vet that they have every confidence in, that will be able to help them make these decisions. Comfort them as only you can, dear Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen. {{{hugs}}} Doris

How devastating for you and your husband! I know our furbabies are just that our babies and I can't imagine how it feels to be losing her. I pray that the vet can save her. My thoughts and prayers are with you. ((((hugs)))

Linda Kaiser said...

Thanks everyonefor your wonderful comments and many emails.

Now for an update on Izzy. I posted last night at midnight so our first visit was Tuesday afternoon. Our wonderful Vet called this morning and Izzy had a good night with no seizures. They think she has idiopathic epilespy, but they can not be sure. Our Vet,Dr. Brenda said Izzy has improved and I am on my way to visit.

Dr. Brenda is somewhat optimistic, but at this point she said anything can happen.

Thanks again for all your kind words. They mean a lot to us!

Linda

Izzy is just so beautiful!!! My cat Jessie is about 15 yo., has no sight in one eye due to cataracts, and started kidney failure a few months ago. I so know what you are going thru - my thoughts and prayers are with your family and Izzy!

Linda, I'm so sorry. I know how close our animals are to us. We have a small dog who means the world to us and we would be devastated if somethig happened to her. I hope your vet can help her through this crisis.
