Updates and thanks....

Update on our boy ..
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the thoughts, prayers and purrs for our Jasper. Last night after another day of eating hardly anything Barrie decided he was going to risk  a extra appetite tablet. The tablet seemed to help a little and Jasper ate some food. Today again almost nothing so Barrie is going to try again. Jasper is wanting to stick as close as he can and is sleeping much more. We are still hoping so much that he will start to eat something on his own but we also realise that those levels are all the time creeping up and we fear they will overwhelm our sweet boy. At the moment he is not hiding away which is a good thing and he is still also at the moment still  our sweet boy, we will do whatever needed and fight on. We have had 18 months after there being almost no hope back then so the fight is on to get more months. One of the best things I did way back in 2008 was to start a blog for my sweet boy and through that blog we have made many wonderful friends and shared so many ups and so many downs. I hope we can share much more and I know you all are helping so much. Thank you all so very much..

 Two days ago it was warm enough to sit outside with dad and I sat in the flower barrow with dad in reach to keep stroking me while I got a little sun on my furs. It is now back to cold and the heating on..

Love and hugs to all my friends.. GJ xxx

sun puddles often help lift our spirits GJ when we aren't feelin' so great. I do not know your bloggy and so am not sure how old you are only that it sounds like you have kidney failure? Is it irreversible? I am sorry to be asking. WE have a foster kitty Leo who is about 7 years old and developed fatty liver syndrome and he has had a feeding tube in him for almost 4 weeks now...he is just starting to eat again on his own but the tube must stay in until he is eating at least 200 calories a day on his own. I hope you can stay comfortable and still be near Mum and Dad, paw hugs, Savannah

I do feel what you're going through
We had Tabitha as a kitten then when she was 10 yrs she was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. Her last four years she had a great time went with us to our caravan by car and was a firm favourite,despite having her injections she adjusted. She outlived my husband and was a great comfort to me and went on to live a further two years, I was heartbroken for it was then I felt totally alone. I think of Ginger Jasper most nights if I can't sleep I hope you have him for many more months , he has rallied before and may well do so again, My love to you all

Darling GJ

I'm soooo worried about you. Its been a joy to read about your life every since i stumbled upon your blog last year. I've sending all my purrs and prayers to you all the way from a little sunny island called Penang in Malaysia. Fight on GJ, you've done it before and you can do it again.

Tummy scritches and purrs, GJ!

Kari said...

So sick and still such an exquisitely beautiful and loving boy. God bless you, darling, we're praying hard for you. We know you came through before and will do it again.
Have you gotten fluids yet? Dehydration sets off a vicious cycle in cats.
We wish we were by your side to tell you how much we love you and how much you mean to us. All of our love to you, precious boy, always.

Stay close to your people, Ginger Jasper; they'll give you strength, just as you give it to them. But eat some more, too.
