Another Day in Prison

Sadly, that's still where Tia is. We haven't managed to spring her. It was looking hopeful yesterday, but this morning, her temperature had gone right back up again. She's refusing to poo for them still, even though she's apparently eating like a horse. The vet said that even though her temperature had come back down, he was still concerned. She feels like she has normal poop to come out first, but behind that she still feels all girgly and runny, so they're worried about a relapse of diarrhoea. I'm very upset that she's in for another day. I know it's silly, but I had myself set on her coming home today. I was looking forward to it, to having at least an evening with her where there's no work to get in the way, where I can watch her closely. Even if she's Ok tomorrow, I can't pick her up till gone 5 when I'm out of work, and then I need to be preparing for this physio interview all this week, plus packing for Ireland etc, so there won't be much quality time to spend with her before I go away for christmas. Add to that that I want to spoil molly and there's just too much pressure for the next few days. Today was due to be a bit quieter. Although I'm cleaning and baking a cake for my work colleagues, the urgency is less because I have more time to do it all in on a weekend. It just doesn't feel right with her not here, and sleep, unbroken sleep, feels so unnatural that I've started to wake myself up and go looking for her before I realise she's not here. Poor girl. It can't be much fun to be cooped up for all that length of time in a horrid little cage with no space to run and no toys to play with. She must be so bored and miserable.

Our vets don't let you visit the animals either, so I can't even see her in between. So if she's home tomorrow, and that's looking like a big if, I'll have three manic evenings with her before we have to head out to Oxford. Then I'll have a weekend, but she'll spend most of that hiding because she's in a new place. Just as she'll be venturing out, I'll have to go for my flight to Ireland. I won't see her for ten days then. The timing of this sucks!

Oh I am so so so sorry that lovely Tia is still at the vets. Oh dear! I think your vet should let you visit her! I really can't see why that's not possible. My vets' here are very good and if your pet is in for a few days, you can visit if only for a few minutes. It helps everyone - it really does!! I hope they make an exception for you!!

Me and Charlie are sending you and Tia lots and lots of purrs and hugs. Fingers crossed she poos ok!!! Oh dear, poor little kitty!! Take care

Admiral's Mom here: I am so sorry your baby is not home. I know what you mean about unbroken sleep...of which I have had none in several years since my baby got ill.

I can't even imagine why you mom's cannot go visit your cats in the Vet hospital. It even benefits the animals! That is so harsh.
Take care..

Awwww Carlie I hope she is alright soon. Can they not give her something to make her poo? She is maybe constipated and that's why she can't give a sample? Or else she is just being a madam!

Take care, and huge huge huge hugs. Xxx.

Oh that is just too bad! I would make a huge fuss (and change vets) if I couldn't see my fur kids. Fingers crossed that Tia can come home tomorrow.

I'm sorry to hear this about Tia. She should be able to see Mom at least and it would be so much better on you both. I hope she gets to come home tomorrow and her problem is resolved soon.

Julie here..OMG, I'm so sorry this is going on for you right now. It's too bad you can't see her. Hoping for the best! (I don't like it that you can't see her).

Hugs from Tom and me,

We will purr that Tia will come home tomorrow.
WE know how hard that must be ... being without her.

I'm so sorry that Tia is still at the vet's. I hope she can home today and is feeling better.

We are so sorry that Tia is still not feeling well. We are sending lots of purrs.

Oh, Mommy forgot, can you email her at:

You won something in Chrystal's auction!

We're wondering why that V*T doesn't let you visit with Tia. Even if he is concerned about contamination, he should be willing to bring her out to youto visit for a while.

Still purrrrrrring for you all.
