Please pray for Mallie...

Sometimes the world seems so cruel. The shelter lady just called, although Mallie hasn't been sneezing anymore, he started vomiting and stopped eating yesterday. She switched his antibiotic to amoxicillin, and started giving subq fluids too. She insists that at this young of an age a vet just wouldn't be able to diagnose him- she thinks it is simply fading kitten syndrome and she is just going to do everything she can for him at the shelter and hopefully he will pull through. She said he still doesn't look good, but at least he has stopped vomiting for now. I just can't believe this--maybe I'm just not supposed to have cats.
Callie is still getting her surgery tomorrow and we can pick her up either Wednesday or Thursday.
I will post again tomorrow night with how Callie's surgery went and an update on Mallie's condition.

Please don't give up. It sounds like Callie is meant to come home with you and hopefully, Mallie will get better soon and can join her.

It's probably just a bump in the road. Don't be discouraged.

I hope little Mallie pulls through and soon joins Callie.

We'll be purring for him, but she really should get him to a vet - there are plenty of little things that could be wrong (reaction to the antibiotics, parasite, etc.) that the vet can easily diagnose. Pearl had tons of problems when she was first home from the shelter - we were back and forth with her constantly.

And don't give up - of course you are meant to have cats! Callie will be home with you soon and hopefully Mallie in a little while.
