Hi Joy,

I was reading through the Fibro forum and I saw your post on your kitty, I'm so sorry that she passed away a few days ago. I know how upsetting that is, especially since she had been sick for several days prior.

I hope that your flare is improving and you're beginning to feel a bit better. I know I could and should have posted on the Fibro thread, but I wanted us lupus folks to offer up some much needed hugs and support.

I have a kitty that's 17 years old and he's hanging in there but has health issues. I'm totally dreading the day when he needs to depart from me. I had to put our other kitty down in 2001 we had her for 15 years plus she was 2 years old when we got her. It was the hardest thing I had to do EVER.

Take care of yourself, rest and try to let yourself grieve for your kitty. Try to sleep a lot and eat healthy, your flare will settle out soon. If not make sure you call your Doctor and maybe get a steroid dose pack.

Gentle hugs, (((((((Joy))))))).

Take care,

I am sorry about your kitty. My animals are my world. We had a Black Lab who was give to us by my husband's brother when he moved. We weren't exactly sure how old she was but around 17. It was awful when she had to go.

I'm getting better emotionally. I just really miss her.

I had to go to the UC today because she bit me Sunday night when I tried to hold her and the place had started to swell and turn red.
The doctor gave me a strong antibiotic that I've never taken before. Fingers crossed that I'm not allergic to it.
Lovely shot too in the arm to prevent lock jaw. :(

Thanks for the hugs.

Hi Joy,
     I know how hard it is to lose a cat.  My three passed on all in a two year period at the ripe old ages of 16, 17 and 18....momma and her two offspring.  I felt like I had lost a significant part of my heart.  Hang in there Joy.  I am thinking positive thoughts for you right now and sending you a (((((((((((((gentle hug)))))))))))))))))))).
