Sad Day - A tribute to Pablo



It is with a very sad heart that I am dictating this from my sick bed. My dear furriend Pablo has passed on to the Bridge. I shall always remember him as the feisty, handsome dude who had his own international fan club of which I was a member. When we first met, he was under the blanket for days, in protest to moving house. He was only showing a paw from under the blanket on the day of my first visit.

His mum and SS met for coffee when she was in Sydney for a conference and had a good netter about us. A bond was formed between the families, as it were.

We have followed each other's progress since then, inlcuding the addition of his new family member, baby Alex. We were very concerned and worried when he fell ill in the recent months but had hoped that he would recover and spend many more years with his loving family. But that was not to be.

We will miss you, Pabs, until we meet again. Run free with our furriends over the Bridge!!!!!

As for me, I was admitted to the Hospital again after vomiting. I was more dehydrated this time due to not eating/drinking and the prolonged intense heat wave. Our area had power blackout and there was no cooling - the house was like an oven when the outside temperature persisted at over 100F. I was given subQ fluids and further tests showed that my kidneys were indeeed compromised. That's why I have decreased ability in fluid regulation. The vet will teach SS how to give me subQ fluids. However, for the time being I am staying in the hospital until I eat/drink to the vet's satisfaction. It was with great relief for all that a cool change arrived yesterday, dropping more than 30 degrees F in half an hour. SS hopes I can come home soon.

Thankyou all for your purrs!

We were sorry to hear about Pablo. Purrs to his family from all of us.
And you are still in the hospital. Mom had to do subQ fluids for Misty, and we are sure SS can do it too. We will continue to purr for you and that you can get well.

Kea said...

We were deeply saddened at Pablo's passing too.

Continued purrs to you, MoMo, that you soon will be better and be home. Annie recently spent the 5 days at the vet hospital with IV fluids 24/7 (and the endless enemas, of course, plus x-ray, etc.) so she definitely commiserates with you.

Sending kitty kisses to you and hugs to SS.

We were very sad about Pablo too. We sure hope you can start getting better really soon. Hopefully the vet can get you straightened out with the fluids. We have had several cats here that had the kidney problems and we went once a week for fluids and we did great. Take care.

The Island Cats said...

We were so sad to hear about Pablo. He was one of our first blogging buddies too. We will miss him very much. We sent purrs to his family...

And Momo, we're sorry you still aren't feeling well either. We hope the weather gets cooler and you start feeling better. Ourmom gave one that came before us fluids and she said it wasn't too difficult. We know the SS is doing everything she can to help you. We send you purrs too.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We didn't know Pablo but it is always sad to hear of kitties going to Rainbow Bridge. We are sorry to hear you are staying with the vet until you are re-hydrated -that was too much heat for any cat but especially for you Momo. We hope you will soon be home again with your mom and keeping her on her toes!!

Cory said...

We are keeping the purr motors going strong for you MoMo!

Forever Foster said...

We were devestated to read about Pablo.

You guys must have been so relieved to have the cool change come through. We're so sorry that you're not feeling well, Momo. We hope the sub q fluids make you feel better. I had lots of sub q when I was a bubba, it's good stuff! We're all purring for you.

We were very sad to hear about Pabs.

We are very concerned about you sweet MoMo. We are sending our best healing purrs and we do so wish we could send you some of our cold weather. It is very upsetting that you had a power blackout and had to endure the heat when you already felt bad.
