Marvin update (one)

Marvin spent the day in the kitty hospital getting fluids and care. Sadly, there doesn't appear to be any change in his status. The vet said along with not eating or drinking, he's also not regulating his body temperature. At home he camps on a heating pad or a lap pretty much all the time, so no telling how long that may have been going on. He now has a heating pad in his "room" which is helping.


I was afraid to visit him at the hospital tonight, fearing that if I did my emotions would catch up to me. And sure enough they did. It's so hard to see a loved one struggle and be powerless to do anything.

He was really restless and took some time pacing and exploring before he wanted loves.

Once he warmed up to loves he didn't want me to leave him again. I've said this about a thousand times and will keep saying it, I love that our 24-hour vet is across the alley and that they have generous visiting hours!

Marvin's usual vet wasn't in today, but he'll be in first thing in the morning. Hopefully he'll have some ideas about what's going on and some treatment plan options. Right now, we're still in the dark.

  Hang in there Marvs, and please eat! I'm worried about you.
I miss your endless cuddles throughout the night.

  1. I understand this heartbreak and I, as have many, shared the same feeling of hopelessness and tears while wanting desperately to help our fur baby. Marvin, I pray the vet can find something, some new information for you through the VIN to be of help. Love to you and the family.
