Salem was the kitty that always hated guys. But when she met Joel that was a whole other story, he was the guy that she fell in love with and only guy she really liked.
She was the runt of her litter so she got the nickname Princess Salem
Last Thursday Salem seemed a bit off so I took her to the vets, they said she was dehydrated and her red blood cell count was a bit high but could be due to dehydration.
The rest of her tests came back Friday showing renal disease. Which our vet said that she showed signs of a kitty that was gonna fight her way back to being healthy, she didn't show signs of being ready to go to the rainbow bridge. Rest of Friday went well, Saturday too. She was drinking lots of water and low sodium chicken broth and eating food.
She didn't like the kidney food though once I brought it home, but still managed to eat bits of it here and there exp after I put some chicken broth with it. Sunday was nothing but chicken broth and water, very little to no food.
Today I woke up just before Noon to use the rest room, Salem was sleeping on the couch, perked up when she heard me coming, I got her to drink some water but she wouldn't touch her food. The last few days she was still wandering around, jumping on the couch and our bed to hang out with us, alert and still being Salem just a bit more tired then her usual self. I went back to bed to rest some more.
Today I woke up at 3pm cause our Orkin guy was coming. Bless his heart he didnt' do the inside when we told him that our kitty wasn't feeling well, he didn't wanna stress her out by spraying in the house, so he also took $30 off the price since he just did outside.
When I woke up though i got her to drink some water but still nada on food. I picked her up and she was super weak, her breathing started acting up, I started having flashbacks to when Slayer passed away in my arms almost 2 years ago.
She called out to me a few times as I held her but she just wanted to lay down on the couch, I let her, she was thirsty but to tired to do it herself so i gave her some in a syringe along with some more broth.
My friend Haley bless her heart was getting off work and brought me some pedilite, we opened it to give Salem a little, she drank it though the syringe but no sooner then that she jumped off the couch and her back legs gave out. I told Haley maybe its time to take her down to the emerg vet office. I didn't wanna give up on her, she was putting up one hella fight too these last few days.
I then picked her up as she cried for me i knew this was it.... it was the same cry as Slayer had when he passed in my arms. Moments passed as I told her to go be with Slayer that she was a good girl and I love her.
She passed in my arms tonight, I am thankful my best friend Haley was here with me since Joel is at work.
Salem is resting in the other room in her blanket for now til I can get her to the vets in the morning and make kitty arrangements
Thank you everyone for the thoughts and prayers though this tough time I love all of you
She isnt' now just with Bubbles, JR and Olivia but she is also reunited with her one true love Slayer I miss them all everyday but I know they are all not suffering now and chasing those birds at the rainbow bridge, til we all meet again my babies Mommy & Daddy love you guys
