From the Rumblemum

We went to see Inigo at the vet today. He was so bright and happy yesterday, and he'd been eating so well... today he was not so bright.

He purred at us, and was trying so hard to be himself, but I can tell he's not well.

There is a very real possibility that he's got more fluid in his chest. We'll know more tomorrow as the vet will x-ray him in the morning. If it is more fluid... well we're running out of options.

I know I've asked a lot of you all, but please...please... purr or think good thoughts for my gentle boy. I'm hoping against hope that he was just not hungry when we came by, and that there is no more fluid in his chest. He's such a good boy, loves to be loved, and always there with a cuddle if we were feeling down.

Rumbles is not himself either, he keeps looking for his big brother.

Please keep him in your thoughts for tomorrow.

Cody and I are praying for Inigo...has the vet tried Lasix?
When my Bobo had the same condition the doctor was able to manage the fluid by his heart quite well for a few years with Lasix...if it is available there and you haven't tried it, it is worth a try.
You are in our thoughts and prayers and our hearts

We're sending many many purrs to Inigo - and also to the whole Rumble family. Really hope he will be OK!

Love and purrs from Franklin, Dobby, Tasha, and Mom Katie

P.S. from Katie - one of our senior cats, Henry, had congestive heart failure with fluid build-up, and, like Inigo, his was also episodic. But Henry was 13 and also had chronic renal failure as well as some other health issues so treatment was quite difficult. Very much hoping that Inigo's youth and strength will help him get through this!

Kruse Kats said...

We wish the best for Inigo whatever the outsome. Poor rumbles! So lost without his buddy. Leaky eyes from Mom, purrs and head licks from us guys. Maggie says she can ship her little brother to keep rumbles company. Mom doesn't think too much of that! MOL

Inigo is in our thoughts and prayers and we are sending him powerful pawsitive healing vibes.

We sure hope it's not more fluid, too.

Hopefully, all the combined purring from around the world will protect Inigo and bring him home.

We, too are purring as hard as we can. And we are asking the cat gods to step in and give Inigo more time with you all. Rumbles is not himself 'cos he knows where his brother is, what it could mean and how the rumble parents are stressed by it all. A thousand thousand blessings to yu all.Paws crossed!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

It's almost tomorrow. We hope he is doing better. It's so hard when they're sick.

The Chair Speaks said...

Oh dear, if there are fluid in the lungs, it had to be drained off.
Tortie's (just diagnosed with chronic kidney disease) late brother 4head (whom I have not blogged about yet) had this problem due cardiomyopathy (heart problems). He was put on oxygen to help him breath that time.

Purrs and hope Inigo will feel comfortable.
