Kali continues to yack everything up. She even yacked up yesterday's Temptations. I'm going to call my vet today. I'm preparing to say good-bye. Part of me will feel better once she's out of pain. The other part will feel alone without my companion of nineteen years. 

Update
My vet's office only has one vet in today and told me that I'd have to leave her there and they would look at her when they could. Well I know Kali and she freaks out whenever we leave home and at the vet's she has had fits in the past. She's had a lot of painful dental work and I think she's just too smart to put up with any strange people a pokin' and a prodin'. She is a Tortie after all and she can be very opinionated. I am not leaving her somewhere so that they can then call me and tell me that she needs to be put to sleep.

The person who answered the phone felt very badly that she couldn't work me in. But this service just isn't acceptable. I searched high and low for a vet clinic that people seem to like around here. I found one that has glowing reports, has 5 different vets, and who's website has the title "Full Service Care for Pets Who Are Part of the Family." I made an appointment here. She will be seen at 4:00 pm PST. I will be moving all of the cats to this vet, if I like it there. It is so difficult to get into my current vet's office. I like my vets personality, but if I can't see him, then it's not fair to the kids. And these are my kids.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. Only cat people can understand. I saw her up and walking about this morning and I'm sure it's your prayers that gave her the strength to do that.
Hugs to each of you,
Lynn/The Mom

Mommy sure knows how you feel. She put Jaime's photo up today, her very first kitty when her kids were small. Jaime lived 21 years on Tendervittles!!! Mommy took her out to the garden where she loved being amoungst the flowers. The vet came to send her to the Bridge from home. We are all purring for Kali! Ty & The Cat Street Boyz

I am so glad you did not have to leave Kali at the vet's office on what might be her last chance to spend time with you. I hope the new place is caring and compassionate. My thoughts are with you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We are so glad you elected to find another vet, rather than leave Kali alone at the vet's at a time like this when she needs you with her. And you need her with you.

Our purrs and prayers go with you.

The Meezers said...

poor Kali. Miles has the same reaction to the v-e-t becuase of his dental work as well. Mommy says you are very brave KalisMom. She was forchunate that Trixie, Norton and Ralphie all 'acided to run off on their own and she didn't haf to go to the v-e-t wif any of them. We are sending you extra purrrrssss that everyfing works out the best at the new v-e-t. Perhaps this is Kali's last job - making sure that the others have the best v-e-t care.
We are purring and purraying for you Kali honey

Oh no, we only just heard about Kali. We are sending our purrs and hope the new V E T can help her get better, or if she has decided it is her time to go to the Bridge, that they will gently help her on her way to meet her old furrends.

michico*Adan said...

I also believe new VET will be better. I also can't accept there is any vet can't see the doctor or my baby, that is not correct.

19 years seems long, but it seems too short, before I met you, or all of you, I was thinking if my baby could live til 19 is really better enough, better than many younger angels, but now... still feeling too short...

I sincerely hope Kali won't have any pain, she is very brave and live very happily ever after born~! Because she has you! I believe the new vet may do something making you and Kali feeling better.

I purr and purr and purr, I will cuddle with my baby pray for you together.

Best Wishes
Michico

We hope the new vet might offer some hope to keep you together a bit longer, but realize that it may be time for Kali to go home.
Whatever happens, we are all with you.
