Sweet Heidi

Hello. Poor Heidi has not been very well again, so it was a visit to the vet today. It's the same recurring problem with her red blood cells, they are not reproducing as they should and she is anaemic, resulting in tiredness. There is no cure for it, all we can do is blood tests, and medicate, and monitor it. The vet said she will have a much shorter life, it's not possible at this stage to put a time on it.

She has had an injection and I have to give her a tablet every day, and we'll see how it goes. Poor little Heidi, such a sweet little thing, so affectionate, it's such a shame.

I'll make this a short one tonight, don't much feel like writing.

Thanks for popping in. Catch up soon. toodle pip.

  5. Really sorry to hear this Ilona. Always so hard when one of your furry family is ill and there is effective treatment available. I know you will do your best for Heidi as you do with all your family. So sad when their life is shorter than it should be. Thinking of you. Kristel

  7. She's lovely, Ilona and so are you for loving her so much. It's awfully sad that pets live a relatively short time compared to us. Recently two friends (who don't know one another) have confided in me that losing their dogs was worse than losing a parent.
    She will be taken care of and loved until the end of her natural life and that is, in itself, a wonderful thing. I do understand how you feel.

  14. Hi Ilona,
    I'm sorry to hear the news about Heidi but even though her life might be somewhat shortened by this disease, I'm sure it couldn't be a happier one in your care.
    Give her a hug and cuddle from me, another cat lover.

  20. So sorry for Heidi, such a shame. I'm off to vets again today with our cat who has a chronic skin condition for which there isn't a cure - only steroid injections. Something linked to her immune system. Sending best wishes your way. X

  31. Such a good mommy for this fur babygirl. She has been loved and pampered since you took her (and her babies) into your home. And, I know, she will continue to get the absolute best from you.
