Miserable Monday

Hi everyone. I am going to take a short break from blogging because of Phoebe’s health. She had been doing so well eating, but she seemed weak so I took her to the vet Saturday.

She was dehydrated so she got her fluids. Her weight went down again despite eating well  and is now 4 pounds 12 ounces. We are waiting on some blood work results that will be in on Monday. Her anemia has gotten worse too, but we don’t know if the cause is kidney disease or something else.

Annie at McGuffy’s Reader will still run the Friendly Fill-Ins on Friday if I am not blogging then. I just want to spend my time with her just in case we don’t have much more time.

All purrs and prayers are appreciated. Thank you.


  1. Ellen I am so very sorry to read this about Phoebe.
    We understand her struggles and we sure wish we could help you somehow.
    But please know you are thought of and we send you lots of prayers and hugs
    Cecilia and Madi

  2. Ellen, I am so sorry. When my late Coolidge quit eating, I liquified his tinned food and fed him with a syringe. It helped, but nothing works forever. Bitter fact, but we all know it. . . .I will pray for a turnaround for Phoebe, and for acceptance and peace of heart for you, if the turnaround is not to be.

  3. Oh dears, sending very best get well wishes for dear Phoebe and hugs for Ellen.

  4. Ellen, I am so sorry to hear that Phoebe is not feeling well. You and Phoebe have my prayers and I understand the break from blogging to concentrate on her. I have not been feeling well myself so haven’t been around this weekend. Prayers for you both are on the way and hugs, too. Thinking of you… ♥

  5. Oh awnty Ellen, we are so sorry. We were just tellin’ our furiends ’bout how pawsum you are and all of your amazin’ kitties. We’re sendin’ hugs fur all and lots of purrayers. Purrlease, ifin you need anythin’, let us know. we’re here fur you and Phoebe.

    Luv ya’

  6. Oh, Ellen, this sounds really bad. I think it’s a very wise decision to spend as much time as possible with Phoebe – either way, you and she will benefit from it. Even if she recovers. Which we hope. <3 <3

  7. So sorry to hear Phoebe isn’t doing well. She most certainly has been trying her best to not let her considerable medical issues get her down, bless her heart. It’s a lot for a little girl to go through – we hope she rallies again though – but I know that I would be doing the SAME THING…….lots of hugs, catering to her needs, just being a Mom for whatever time you can have with her. As I said, I hope she rallies for you……….

    Love, Pam

  8. If I may give you an advice, don’t stress her, don’t let her suffer, don’t insist, it’s a very hard decision but sometimes it is less egoistic to let them go. I know it very well.

  9. Oh Phoebe, please get better. We were hust getting to know you and your so darn pretty.
    ?Sending thoughts and prayers and purryers (from Jasmine) to you and your mommy. ?

  10. I am so very sorry Phoebe is not doing well. I really hope things turn around for the better but if not, giving her much attention in her final days is the best you can do,

  11. So sorry Phoebe isn’t doing well. It is so so hard when they get sick. We sure send lots of purrs and prayers to you both. We will have all our paws crossed for you.

  12. Oh Phoebe – you are such a feisty girl ! Purrayers and POTP to you and your Mama and all who care for you so much !

  13. OH! Miss Ellen! We will certainly be praying for you and Phoebe. We hope she will be well and you enjoy yourself with her. We love you so much.

  14. Oh, we are putting our paws together in prayers for dear Phoebe. We hope they can discover the problem and get her back on the healthy road again. Mom is sending lots of hugs to you, dear Ellen. We’re sending purrs and soft paw pats.

  15. Oh no, I’m so sorry, Ellen. Sending purrs, prayers, and love to you and Phoebe! I hope the vet is able to figure out what’s going on so you guys can get her back healthy again! Enjoy your quality time together <3

  16. Those prayers are always coming from our mom to Phoebe, and we kitties send purrs and POTP. Please let mom know if you need the anemia medicine sent. Love to all. We know Phoebe will be delighted with the extra attention. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  17. We’re so sorry to hear about Phoebe. She was doing so well. Hope it’s just a setback, nothing more serious. Our thoughts are with you as you await results. We are purring and praying for Phoebe,

  23. OH NO. I haven’t hardly been anywhere on the CB and look what I missed. The opportunity to be as much as possible to be there for precious Phoebe. Ellen, I am devastated for you and your husband, Phoebe, Grammie and all the babies. I’m not going to let her out of my thoughts.

  24. I’m so sorry to hear about your sweet Phoebe. Please spend as much time as you can with her. I hope she gets better xo
