The cat is not doing well. OK, slightly better than before. Now he’s not hiding behind the toilet in the bathroom at my parents’ house. Now he’s sprawled in the middle of the kitchen floor — where there’s no sunlight in this part of the afternoon. He’s not eaten, he’s not pooped, he’s not pissed. He’s not drunk enough water. Mom is very worried for him now, too. She reminded me that when her cat had to be put down, my dad took care of all the arrangements; she offered just now to do the same for Geordie when the time comes.

Ye gods, but that makes me scared for him. Not because mom won’t take care of him, or that he’ll suffer or anything — but that she would offer. Both she and dad don’t really think he’s going to make it.

    I have no idea if this is the kitty that you gave me, because I don’t know who you are… But given that I got this cat from , if you’re not connected to him, then this is not your cat…

    does that make sense?

  4. I definitely feel for you, having been in this situation before. Without knowing much about Geordie, my biggest hope is that he’s happy and well and can enjoy being with the people that he loves. I don’t know how old Geordie is but if he’s getting up there in years the question you may wish to ask yourself is who are you keeping him alive for? I realize that’s a rather hard question to be asking, but it’s true none-the-less. If you honestly believe that Geordie has some good years left and that he can enjoy those, then by all means, go to whatever lengths you can afford mentally and spiritally as well as financially. If, however, you want to keep Geordie alive because you don’t want to lose him and have him gone from your life, maybe it’s time to take a good, hard look at things. If all you’re doing is keeping Geordie’s body alive but all the things that made him the cat he is, his essence if you will, is fading or gone, maybe it’s just time to let him move through to the next stage of his being.

  8. I’m so sorry that your kittie isn’t doing much better! Poor little guy. Leah is right though,…I’ve heard reiki can do wonders for pets, too. Try it out…can’t hurt…can only help if anything

  10. Someone once suggested doing reiki on pets when they were not well. Elizabeth from PP helped one of her Dogs live a couple years longer than expected by doing treatments on him. Your hands are really powerful. It wouldn’t hurt. Sorry to hear Mom and Dad are not feeling hopeful.
