Vet Again

We are headed back to the vet this morning. Elliott is completely despondent, curled up in the back of his crate, not interested in much. Last night he came out once to use the cat box, and I pulled him out three times - for pills, for snuggles, and to force some water. Around midnight he came out and I got him to eat some watered-down food... probably the steroids kicking in, but he walks like he has a lot of stiffness and I have to wonder if his body has started to attack his muscles. He weighed 5 lbs, 13 oz on Monday. It's going to be worst this morning, I know it.

So we'll be back at the vet at 8:30 AM, and the likelihood they'll keep him is high. Please continue to say prayers. The last few days have been like a yo-yo - just when I start hoping, something bad happens.

Please email me when you get back, if you can. I am sending prayers up to heaven for both of you...how old is Elliott...this sounds like what happened to one of my g'f's cats, but she was an old cat...very old...17 years...
Love and best wishes,
Annie

I found this.........St. Francis of Assisi is Patron Saint of Animals.............
Blessing of Diseased AnimalsWe call upon Thy mercy, O Lord, without ceasing; grant that these animals, afflicted with grievous disease, may be restored to health in Thy name and by the power of Thy blessing. May all the power of the devil be driven from them so that they will languish no more. Be Thou, O Lord, the protector of their lives and the healer of their ailments.
