Rupert vs his body
I received an email yesterday asking me to call in about Rupert. I knew that there must be news and it was not good. I called in and was told that Rupert had seen the vet and they were able to get enough blood to do some bloodwork. How much I do not know, I was told that the report said that his organs were shutting down. I'm left to wonder if they are shutting down or if they ever worked properly.
They are going to try another medication with him, so he is currently staying with the foster coordinator. The outlook does not look good and barring a miracle he will remain in hospice care until such time as his quality of life is an issue.
I am heartbroken by the news. I knew that the chances of him becoming a big strong healthy mancat dimmed with each day I had him and his weight did not increase, but I had hope. I always have hope. So much so I bought him a food dish..
I mean how could I not.. I miss him like crazy. I love how much he wanted attention. He was the only kitten that would run out of the kitten room to greet me and then run back in when I stepped in the room.
I do not know how much time he has.. but I know that his remaining days will be filled with love, not only in person by the woman caring for him, but from me from afar, and I'm guessing from all of you.
