Its monday and i have still not heard a word from the vet…
This morning I stayed home extra long with Delwyn not sure if it was her purring my belly or the fact it was freezing today that made me unable to get out of bed.

This weekend we left her brother Vaughn at the store, his so handsome and so spolied (by me)
I miss his morning and evening routine that involde at least a half hour of playing fetch.
He is still a bit skiddish jumps for every odd sound and hides when people he dont know enter his room.
But His such a lovely cat i hope people will see that in the store. His purr are the moste amazing on i ever heard and by now i heard a few..

it is very hard to foster kittens for a longer time and then give them up and as soon as a kitten gets sick the fostering time just gets longer plus you may just have that one and not the whole litter which means you get close to the kitten in a whole other way.

Markus one of my former foster kittens a little orange tabby i will miss him forever i think, i have his photo at work and by my computer at home and i just finsihed a scrap book page about him this weekend.
But i know His new Daddy and he has a great home and one weekend i will have time to go visit him and his adopted sister Gracie, whom I also fostered. she is a beauty and has a really funny background storie.

I learned when giving Markus up that when a cat gets sick and you tend to them its extremly hard to give them up so therefor Delwyn is ours.

when and if she gets well i will adopt her no one in the family would be able to give her up after all off this, even my mom called from Sweden when she got back home after the holidays and asked how Delwyn was doing and when i told her there was a small chance that it wasn’t FIP she said you cant give her up you have to send her here then…

well soon i hope the vet will call me soon i will get the result i dread and yet want so badly. I dont know how i will deal with it if the DNA says its FIP even if I try to tell my self it probably is, the fact she is still not worse keeps feeding my hope.. she is such a little cutie
The vet just called and told me the results had not yet come… (sighs deeply)
I asked him how long a cat normally lives with wet FIP his replay was simply I am very suprised that she is still alive
if it comes back showing FIP

I have to get back to work as i wont get any answer today i will try not to worry about it

Dewlyn back at the Vet

Today was the Vet appointment at the vet I take my own pets, it felt good to go there they all know me well… Delwyn was not whining when I toke her she just looked up at me with those sad huge eyes of hers, she has lost her voice it seems to come and gone a bit but she still purrs loud and clear some days more other less.

When we came in to the doc he was checking the paper work from the other vet and could not find any blood samples so I told him just to take new once, he looked at Delwyn and softly felt her belly, he opened her mouth and said it that it looked like FIP at a first glance. I almost broke down when he said it and asked what can I do for her, and please don’t just say keep up with what you do?? And how much longer do she has? And what will happen next? All these questions that constantly buzz around in my head came at once.

He said something about that she shouldn’t really be with us now and that it was odd that she wasn’t getting worse and that was what spoke against FIP.
He was going to take the liquid sample from her belly and asked if I could hold her or not,
Not of cause, I am a huge wimp when it comes to my pets…
I turned around and a tech had to hold the lil kitten while he toke the sample she whined just a little but His reaction was priceless for me…
“This is interesting it doesn’t look like FIP at all it looks like urine”
I could tell he was surprised and my doctor usually doesn’t say anything until he has test results.
So now my hopes are up a lot, but I have to be a realist in all this it can still be FIP I have to realize that.
The liquid sample is going off for DNA test a test that is 99% certain as far as I been able to read on the net.
When they did a blood simply Delwyn was crying loudly so loud that I was standing in a corner with my fingers in my ears and finally pleaded “please stop, are you not done soon” they asked me if I wanted to wait in the waiting room and I said “yes” and ran off… sheeeeeesh I am such a wimp. But she was screaming and crying and finally growling and hissing she got a light of fighting spirit left in her that little thing…
She peed all over the table so they got a urine sample too.

And we see her as the gentlest and sweetest cat ever (hehe)..

The Doc gave her a worm medication and prescribed antibiotics, as she isn’t treated for anything right now. He also said it could be a defect she was borne with if it’s not FIP.

He checked her catoracs and said that was not a regular catoracs that cats get by age it was a defect she was borne with and it did have an impact on her vision, but had nothing to do with the illness, there was other eye disease connected with FIP.
An operation would run somewhere about $2000 to $3000 and they could not do it here.
But he thought and I do to that it was nothing to bother with right now.

We haven’t seen that her vision is bad she isn’t clumsy at all.
The DNA test will take a few days
So now we have to wait again and wait and wait.

As soon as we got home Delwyn headed straight for my lap and purred loudly then for her food bowl she eats and eats and I have seen a increase in her eating of dry food and a decrease of her eating of human baby food (or erhm she is spoiled and don’t like ham)

When Lovisa got home later in the afternoon she called me and said she felt Delwyn was better she had more of her glimmer back in her eyes.. Can it be the antibiotics??
Who knows????

A few more long days of wait….

my first Wp post

Dinner is done and its late but the kids are baking so i have a few minutes to test this.

Me and the girls has just come back home from PALS where we clean cages and try to socialize and cuddle and play with the cats and invite people to play and meet them in hope of finding them good homes…

Pals do reject people and they have a no kill policie i think thats some of the reasons why i picked them… Every time i am there i fall in love with at least one often a whole bunch of cats and in the back of my head i think could ?? just one more??? But i know Pals will find them great homes eventually and while they wait i am one of those helping out making their life somewhat great… and then i always buy some silly stuff to Vanja, Alice and Chester.. today we found cat milk for Alice a bark bar for Vanja and actually Chester got nothing cuase he cant eat any fun things and right now my house is so filled of cat toys i really do not need a other one…

well the kids are about done so this will have to do, as my very first post in my new Wp blog
