MY GIRL IS EXTREMELY SICK

UPDATES 2.15pm: Thanks everyone for your concern. I'm a bit short handed here with Janice sleeping soundly in my arms after her medication. She's still weak and it didn't stop raining yet since yesterday. I'll need to get her warm.

SICKLYJANICE01
It has been more than 24 hours and I have not had much rest. I’m still monitoring Janice’s condition with her sleeping next to me now. Ever since the “horn case” last Thursday, which did not show any signs of her being sick, she suddenly turned for the worst last night. Her stools were soft, slimy and bloody. She vomited every few hours with clear slimy substance, almost anywhere possible. Occasionally, I saw blood stains on the floor. She barely touches her food although she did show that she was eager to gobble something down. Worst still, she is still shivering now and the continuous cold rain throughout the day did not make things any better. She didn’t even want me to caress her as I normally did. Neither would she want to sleep next to me. This is getting weirder and scarier every single minute.

From the last visit to the vet, she suspected that Janice could be having some fungal infection or tumor. It could either be horns cysts or cutaneous horns but it was rather rare on a young cat like 9-month old Janice. These tumor-like growths are almost always benign. I hated the sound of the uncertainty and it weakened my heartbeat. They might have to run more tests on her to be certain. Argh... most tests! I was advised to apply some cream on the affected areas and monitor her condition for the next few days.

I have thought of surgically remove those “horns” although the vet did say that it was not necessary. It could also be benign fatty tumor but on her forehead and not on her body? I’m feeling very insecure now as the “C” word has always scared the daylight out of me. I just want to make sure that those possibly “might be malignant” parts be removed. It even got me in more stress when I saw one after another of my J Kitty rotating shift in keeping Janice warm. It was some wonderful sights but… my mind kept running with wild thoughts.

I guessed I would have to take my kismet downstairs tonight to accompany her for another day. Just look at that sad looking eyes and tired face of hers. It just hurts my heart deeply to see her so sick. I just wish this bone-chilling rain would stop and I also wish that I could have done more to stop her suffering…

Life has also been quite cruel for Auntie Deb as she would have to undergo yet another operation on Tuesday. Daddy and us J Kitties would like to send our prayers and purrs for her speedy recovery. We love you Auntie Deb... Get well soon too!

I am so, so sorry that Janice is feeling so poorly. I am purring my hardest for sweet little Janice to feel better soon. The "horn" things seem very mysterious and unusual for a young kitten.

Oh, Criz, we are sorry Janice is so sick! We hope she will feel better very soon. It is scary not knowing what is wrong or what to do for her. But you can't take care of her if you don't take care of yourself.

Purs, hugs and tail wags from all of us.

I'm so sorry to hear sweet Janice is not doing well. I am encouraged to see the other kitty try to comfort her. Perhaps that will cheer her and make her better faster.

I am purring and purring and praying for her to get well and the rain to stop.

Thank God she has you and isn't outside on her own dealing with this.

Please send Janice our best. That just breaks our hearts to read this. A young kitty should not have to be going through something like this. Please keep us updated.

Chris,
I hope Janice has only been infected, Like our Rosa in the beginning of this Summer: A fight with an unknown Cat, that was really dirty, and two days later her right chin looks like a golf ball. Filled with yellow and brown "stuff".
Our vet helped Rosa and after 4 days it was all gone. We have never seen that dirty cat around since then.
Rosa was helped by her sister, Felicia, to keep him away.
Even Cat sisters help each others.

we hope the best for Janice
