The last two weeks haven’t been good for Bear. This 7 year old cutie’s whole world crumbled when his owner surrendered him to the shelter. Such scary noises and sounds, such an unsure future. Bear is wondering if anyone out there has it in their heart to give him another chance at a forever family, one that will never abandon him. For a rescue to help Bear we need a committed foster.

Lucy has gotten new test results back. She had another set of blood and urine tests done on Friday, and I got the results back yesterday. She definitely has a very low stage of kidney disease (again, it’s incurable), but the only things that came back as immediately alarming was a low potassium level and a low red blood cell count, suggesting she’s anemic; however, her stools look normal which means she’s not losing blood through her stool. So, I started her on a potassium supplement which, as the doctor stated, “might pull her out of the lethargic state”. Little did I know how well it would work. I came home from work today to find her jumping up on things I thought lost to her and she had a surprising spring in her step as well. I was amazed at how just one dose of potassium got her back to a state I haven’t seen in at least a month, but all too soon reality came crashing down on me. What hit me was the realization that the potassium supplement wouldn’t have worked so well if she wasn’t already in stage 1 of kidney failure. Just when I thought I had my Lucy back, I was hit with the realization that this can only last so long before she’s back to her lethargic state. “How long that will last”, the doctor stated on Monday, “can be determined only by Lucy herself.” •

Happy tongue out Tuesday! Stick out your tongue if you want treats!
Welcome to my new Instagram. I’m Jack and I have one eye because some mean cat scratched it out. Don’t worry, it’s all healed up now. I’m super snuggly and love people and I certainly don’t let having one eye get in my way. Believe me, I use it to my advantage. #cats#oneeye#maincoon#meow#tabby#jack#purr
