widebody, white & wacky wednesday

we is so em-bare-esst. mommees took this pikshures of ar backsides when we wuz sleepin. she said they was ars kyoot booties. we finks she is jus makin fun of ars back sides. what dus yu fink?

here i is hepin mommee make sure there is nofin left in the bag. nope, no presents left to wrap here! mommees says i looks silly peekin out the bag.

mommees here. please keep yuki in your prayers. she is not feeling well tonight.


yuki has lost about 3 lbs. she now only weighs 7.2 lbs. she looks so bad. as far as i can tell she didn't eat anything today but did drink a little water. she did use her litter box although there was very little for her body to deposit in it. she did give a very pathetic hiss when the vet touched her tummy. she still has a little pep. they are going to draw blood and take x-rays. i may get to pick her up when i get off work. (i really hope i can) they may have to keep her overnight. will update again soon.

yuki has a vet appt at 2:50 (est) this afternoon. will update after i get her home. thanks everyone for all of the prayers.

1/10/07 6:30AM: yuki has drank about a 1/4 cup of water and has peed. still no food. she continues to be weak and sound very pitiful. please keep praying.

as you all know, trying to determine which cat in a multi-cat household is throwing up can be a challenge. it seems yuki has been for about 3 days. only cat food, no foreign objects and not alot.

last night she seemed a bit lethargic. this morning she barely licked the juice from her can of stinky goodness. she even watched as kimiko finished it for her.

i couldn't find her when i got home the first time. i had to eat supper with my dad, pick up my daughter, and pick up my prescription. when i came home from for the night my husband and i searched the house. we called and called yuki's name. i finally found her under a pile of covers in my daughters room.

she apparently had been there most of the day by the way everything looked. when i picked her up i could tell she was not feeling well. she was weak and her meow was pitiful. i made her a little palet with a fleece blanket and a heating pad next to a heater vent. she has stayed there for the last hour or so. i tried to get her to eat some stinky goodness (special gift from eric and flynn - thanks guys) and some fishy flakes. she turned her nose up at both of them. kimiko ate what yuki wouldn't.

i have called the vet. the answering service said they would have him call me in the morning. funny, they have never done that before. perhaps she meant to say she will page him soon. maybe i didn't hear her right. so i am waiting to see if our vet will call.

i will post updates as i can -we know how blogger can be sometimes. thanks for listening. take care.
