In need of St Francis

So, I have a cat. 

A very fat cat. 

She lives with my parents because Mr JB is deathly allergic. 

This afternoon Mr JB and his brother visited my parents and apparently my 15 year old kitty cat isn't doing so well.

My mom wants to put her down. 

Part of me doesn't feel like I have too much say since they have taken care of her since I moved into our house before our wedding. 

And another part of me wants to take her to every vet in the city to get another opinion. 

I had no idea that this was coming. 

She's my first baby. She was my lone companion when I moved out of my parents' home. She lived with my roommates and me during grad school. I missed her more than my then-boyfriend when I moved to France.

Please pray for my kitty cat and for my parents so that they can make a good decision. 

I'm so very, very sad. 


  1. As a cat person, this hits close to home. Poor kitty. Praying for you and her. St. Francis, pray for JB and her kitty!

  2. You know you've got my prayers, buddy!

  3. You've got our prayers too. Moments like these are so hard, I am a cat person too.

  4. Wow...has your parents checked to see if the cat has diabetes? Old, fat cats are likely to get that. I'll say a little prayer to St. Francis to help your kitty. I love cats and I feel she deserves a good examination by a vet. :)

  5. I am so sorry. I had two cats when I lived alone in grad school, and they made such a difference. I lost one of them 4 years ago, due to a heart attack caused by a heart murmur. He was only 8. The other died earlier this year at the age of 12. It is so hard to lose our furry companions, even if we've been separated.

    I'm sorry to hear that your husband is so allergic, too. Being able to give other cats a good home definitely helped ease the pain of Quickstep and Mara's deaths.

  6. Oh, I am so sorry! :( I'll never forget having to say goodbye to our Maggie (mini dachshund).

  7. Any news? I've been praying :( Poor kitty.
