This is not the post we planned for today, and it will not be wordless. We are asking you to keep our sisfur, Fiona, in your purrs and prayers. Though only five years old, she has been diagnosed with CKD. After an ultrasound and ex-rays, our vet is fairly confident that this is congenital.


Purs and Prayers. Fiona needs purrs  and prayers.


Fiona spent the day in ICU at our veterinary hospital on IV fluids. She is home with us now. She will return to the vet for the same tomorrow and a half day on Christmas Eve. Our vet will show us then how to give subQ fluids at home.

Tomorrow Giulietta will have blood work done to make certain she does not have CKD as well. As most of you know, Fiona and Giulietta are sisfurs.

When Mom wasn’t crying today she was reading everything she could about CKD.

We know lab numbers but aren’t going to list all the technical info here. Suffice it to say, she is not in good shape. We will share a prognosis when we have one.

The good news is that she is eating a bit more and doesn’t have anemia or hypertension.

We know prayer works, so we ask you to please add Fiona to your prayer list. Thank you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
