This is Betsy, and if anyone has any healing thoughts or good wishes to send her way she could certainly use them.
Today we found out she has Diabetes, plus some sort of lump on her pancreas. The vet doesn't know right now what might be the cause of the lump.
Betsy is staying overnight, possibly all weekend, at the hospital to have repeated tests to see what the appropriate amount of Insulin would be for her.
She's never had to stay at the vet overnight and I know she must be terrified. She is a little feral cat we adopted when she was a kitten; my husband literally snatched her from the jaws of a raccoon 10 years ago when she was only 5 weeks old.
I don't think I'll get much sleep tonight. I wish animal hospitals had the same options as hospitals for humans, then at least I could go sit in a chair beside her.
Anyway, even if you don't post them here, any and all healing, good thoughts and wishes for Betsy will greatly appreciated.


  1. Oh, no! I just finished reading Tammy's post about the passing of Boone, her big Dogue de Bordeaux and now this.

    Pets give us so much joy but, almost inevitably,they break our hearts by leaving us too soon.

    Best hopes and thought for you and your kitty.

  2. Oh my dear, I'm so sorry to hear about your Betsy. I would be going through the same thing as you...thinking she would be scared and not knowing what was going on. I agree, they should have an option of letting people stay and give comfort. Here's hoping that everything works out for the best. Will be thinking of you and Betsy.

  3. Vicki, thank you for your kind thoughts and wishes for my dear little Betsy. I think they worked!

  4. oh!!! God bless her . my wishes and prayers are with her.


  5. OC and Seema, Betsy is home now and doing fine...I'm sure your prayers and wishes worked!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
