Think I am losing Rosie
« on: July 20, 2012, 21:00 »
My little Rosie has been off color for a couple of days, she had not eaten anything for two days and when I brought her in yesterday I opened a tin of tuna for her.  This should have made her go wild but she just listlessly ate a few mouthfuls and went out again. 

Today our neighbor told OH she was in her garden and did not look well so he went to fetch her, he tried to keep her in so I could look at her when I got back from work but she pulled back the box blocking the cat flap and I do not know where she is.  I know cats go off when they are sick or at the end so I am frightened that we will not see her again.

So sorry, really hope you find her. It might be worth going out and checking under shrubs and hedges etc. She may just have an infection that needs treatment. How old is she? Have you noticed any problems prior to the last few days? There's not much we can say but send our very best wishes that she turns up again.

Rosie is 12yrs old, she has a thyroid condition which means that she is very skinny and needs to eat every two or three hours during the day, however on the plus side some of the neighbors think she must be neglected so they also feed her (she is an expert at begging), and I am hoping this is the case at the moment.

She has gone off before but only for a couple of days as she is a home bird.  Even though we have a cat flap at the back she will insist on sitting on the front doorstep till OH goes to work and lets her in, then she sets up a howl till I feed her, today there is no sign of her.  If she has gone off somewhere I think it will be in the back gardens so I am hoping someone will see her.  As soon as I find her she will be off the vets for a check up.

Just looked down and there is a little ball of black and white fur at my feet.  Rosie is home  :D
Fed her some food and she is just licking the gravy off the top so I mashed it up to see if that would help.  I wonder if she has a mouth infection?  Will keep her in till I get an appointment with the vet.

She has gone very thin, but I have been unable to give her her medicine for the last two days.  She is purring away and seems quite happy so hopefully she was just feeling off color.

When we thought Mili had gone we were so worried (she was up the neighbours pine tree for the night)  I know how you feel.  I hope Rosie is ok

so glad she is home for you and I hope she picks up  :)

If you think she may go wandering again, could you pop notes into the neighbours doors explaining she is not very well and could they phone you if she turns up at their homes again.  You've obviously got very understanding and kind neighbours if they feed her but by the  sound of Rosie she will not be ignored  ;)

Glad she is back safely Sandy  :D

Rosie might have something wrong with her teeth, or an abscess,, so the visit to the vet is  agood idea

One of our  cats had to take thyroid meds, and she was very skinny too. She was weighed every three months at the vet's as she needed very careful monitoring. It was a real  worry so I know what you mean about Rosie.

Good luck at the vet
