I am on my way to take our cat to the vet. He means a lot to us. My step-daughter recieved him as a gift from her mother shortly before she died. My husband had him when we met. In fact one of the things I remember from my first visit to his house is the cat. Everyone remember's Simba. We've had him longer than my son has been alive. I'm really afraid they are going to tell me we have to put him to sleep. I don't know if I can do that. As if 2008 hasn't been crappy enough, you have to take my cat too?

Edited to add: Simba has to stay at the vet's. They are thinking liver, but bloods tests will tell us for sure. There still is the possibility that he is to ill and there is nothing they can do for him. If that is the case, the vet said she would recommend we put him to sleep because he would most certainly suffer. Best case senario is that he needs medication and will be back to his old grumpy self in no time.

I'm hoping everything is okay with Simba. My heart is aching for you right now.

Oh Holli, I'm so sorry. I hope Simba will be alright. I'll be looking for your update, and crossing my fingers.

My cat, Delilah, is my baby and if something were to happen to her, especially now, I would probably jump off the nearest bridge. Nothing that dramatic really, but I would be utterly devastated.
