Goodie Jar – Check In #28

Posted by terrepruitt on August 23, 2013

I did it again.  I forgot to post a check in last week.  Ya see our cat has been sick.  Last week she was so sick I thought we were facing putting her to sleep.  I was so sad I wrote a post about it.  I felt as if I was going to have to Kill My Best Friend.  The first thing I wanted to do Friday morning was call the vet to get an appointment.  I had been communicating via e-mail with one of the vets and she mentioned a “re-check”.  So first thing I did before I even got out of bed on Friday was call the vet.  They had an 8:30 am appointment.  Which to me translated to coffee and go.  I didn’t get to finish my coffee before I had to go.

Anyway . . . the trip to the vet was very much worth it because they gave the cat a vitamin B12 shot.  Apparently this is like the miracle vitamin (not really, but) it really helped the cat a lot.  PLUS the vet said that even though she looked really skinny and IS really skinny she is not yet at death’s door, as her father and I thought.  So . . . I came home and was busy doing other things and I forgot to post my check in.

So here I am calling this #28 because I am only counting them as I do ’em.  And now the cat has other issues.  Anytime you administer drugs there is a chance of other issues arising.  That is why I like to try other avenues and other things before resorting to medication.  While it might help mask some symptoms it usually bring up other ones.  Crazy.  But there are still many things that are good.  And that is one reason to have a good things jar.  It is to help remind us that even where there are things going on that are sad there are still GOOD THINGS!

One of the things I put in my jar is Walking the Labyrinth.  And, of course that our kitty is better than she was earlier in the week.

How about you?  Did you add to your jar?

    I thought about your cat while we were working out”… then forgot to ask you…. glad to hear the shots helped some of her issues… hope she continues to improve!! Mine is purring next to me! That’s a great thing!


    • Joan –

      Thank you so much for being so sweet. I loved the hummus. I am hoping to get to making it today . . . . my husband loved it too. AND, I happen to have sweet potatoes. I am going to roast them. I hope to make it today so I can post the recipe tomorrow. Thank you again for being so sweet to BRING ME SOME and the recipe.

      AND thank you for thinking about my cat. Yesterday I spent a few hours at the vet because it seems the medication we are giving her for the IBD is causing a fluid build up. Or she has a heart condition that is exacerbated by the medication and all of that is causing a fluid build up. So yesterday we were at the vet and came up with a new plan. And today she seems to have a bit more energy and seems to be feeling better AND I think (it is difficult to tell and to get an accurate measure) her swollen abdomen has gone down a bit. So the fluid is being released . . . .hopefully!

      Again, thank you for asking!!!

        glad you enjoyed the hummus! I used sweet potatoes I had cooked and in the freezer!! Didn’t even peel all. I’m sure you’ll like yours too! Let me know!
        re kitty==== it’s so difficult that they can’t talk to us!! Compounds all the issues! good luck! Keep us posted!


        • Yeah, we really liked your hummus.

          Right now, I am glad she can’t talk because I am “tough loving her” from her beloved lunch meat (EEEK!) to cat food. I am sure she would have some choice words for me! LOL!


Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
