OT: Our Little Cat Jack

Our sweet little cat Jack is very ill. He was diagnosed with pneumonia late last week. Early this week, he stopped eating and drinking. On our vet's recommendation, we agreed to put in a feeding tube. He's taking in his food and water that way, but he's not really perking up and the antibiotics don't seem to be helping, meaning he may have something worse than pneumonia wrong with him.

He's eight, and the sweetest little guy. So friendly and dear, he's a snuggler. He's tightly bonded to his best buddy, Tiki, who is also eight. They've been together since Jack was 8 months and Tiki was 4 months old.

Hi there. I was just passing through and wanted to say that I am sorry to hear about Jack. I'm also an animal lover and know how difficult it is when your best-friends become ill. I hope he gets well soon!!

I'm sorry about your cat. I lost mine a year ago. It was very hard to let her go but did not want to be selfish and let her suffer. I will never regret that.

Poor Jack, he looks so peaceful and so cute that Tiki is there looking over him. I'm wishing you all strength and hoping Jack makes a full recover.

Oh honey, I am so sorry to hear about Jack and hope that he feels better soon.

I have a little fur-baby too [a 5 year old manx] and can't imagine her getting that ill. :-(




Please keep us updated on how he's doing.
