Guinness is in kitty ICU (yes, really)

Continuing on with the week, on Friday I received a call from my husband. He’s still in Slovakia and had come home from work to find that Guinness was sick, very sick. It appeared that he’d had another episode (history in the cat file on the right.) When he hadn’t recovered by Saturday morning, my husband took him to a recommended vet. They didn’t have the facilities to keep him overnight, so they suggested another veterinary hospital. Guinness is now in the kitty ICU, receiving IV fluids and going through more testing.

The clinic has visiting hours, so my husband was there to see him earlier today. He’s still not eating or drinking, but doesn’t appear to be as weak as he was previously. So far his leukocytes, AST, and urea have come back abnormal. They plan to keep him for more testing. My husband and Bella miss him so much. I'm so sad that I can't be there.

We’d appreciate some good kitty thoughts. I think we’ve had our share of bad news this year.

This week has to be better, right? right?

  1. *hugs* Sending positve thoughts for Guinness. Hoping he'll be home soon!

  2. Thinking of Guinness with positive kitty thoughts and hoping for a speedy recovery for the poor little guy!

  3. I don't know how I missed this post. Guinness is a fighter. I'm sending him very good healing vibes. You, too. How are you holding up?
