Praise Report - Callie the Cat

I received the following from my friend Jean of Catholic Fire. She has given me permission to share it with you here:

Dear Esther,

...I wanted to give you an update on my cat, Callie, and thank you for your prayers.

When I requested prayers for Callie, she was very ill with diabetes and a bladder infection. We brought her into the vet's office twice -- initially for the diagnostic tests and her medications and later on an emergency basis as she had labored breathing, she wouldn't eat anything at all and laid around motionless. We thought she was dying.

She was given fluids and blood sugar levels were taken. We tried everything we could to entice her to eat, but she did not eat for eight days -- then ate only small amounts of food at a time. She continued to sleep constantly , getting up only to drink water and use her box.

She now eats regular amounts of food, seems more active, and grooms herself. She interacts with us and seems like her normal self.

We think she may have had a reaction to her medication and have cut back to half the dose. The trauma of having to go the vet's office and getting hurt (She moved when the needle was pulled out and was bruised) and having a couple of doctors probe and poke her because they couldn't find her bladder must have been painful, too.

She is doing so much better now. We prayed daily to St. Francis of Assisi and St. Martin de Porres (my husband's patron saint). Bill saw a mouse in two unusual places right before Callie's health improved. Callie's middle name is Jo, so we prayed to St. Joseph, too.

Her getting better was truly a miracle and I don't think it would have happened without your prayer support. Thank you so much!

God bless you!

Prayer Request for Stimpy a/k/a FiFi the Cat

From Maura:
Please pray for my lovely cat Stimpy a/k/a FiFi who is 18+ (we are not sure of his age) and has had a few strokes recently. He had another stroke yesterday and has been at the vets since then and we are hoping against all odds that he can recover somewhat. He gets progressively worse with each stroke. We love him so much but we will have to accept whatever is God's will. Please remember him in your prayers and our family also as we are devastated.
Please join me in praying for Stimpy and all our sick pets and the animals who have no one to care for them or are suffering.

Thank you!

Praise Report from Elle the Dog


Hi Esther

It took me awhile to get here since my Mom never, ever gets off the dang computer.

Anyhoo, I'm not limping anymore but she still won't let me play ball. What's up with that?

I think she's going to wait until I see the doctor before she makes any decisions on what she'll do to keep me from being bored. Maybe I'll just get walks instead of ball.

What to know something cool? Sure you do! As soon as you posted this prayer request my leg started to get better. Yep, indeedy! Almost immediately. How cool is that???

Now the only bad part of this is I didn't get anymore high-end pain meds, which are kinda fun, doncha know.

So (may I call you Aunt Esther?),thanks for having this site for all us little fur people and lizard types (like Bosski)


Thank you Elle. Glad you are much better. You type very well with your paws. BTW, Aunt Esther is fine but since it reminds me too much of the Sandford and Son character by the same name, perhaps Aunty Esther would be better ;-)

Regards to your human mom.

Prayer Request for Elle the Dog

Please keep Adrienne's little dog Elle in your prayers. She was recently seriously ill.

The following is request left by Adrienne, (who prays daily for all our pets in need).
You might add or Elle to the list. She is limping today after playing catch last night. She already had one back leg operated on and it is not unusual for the other to go bad also.

Another 1000 bucks coming up - Sigh. This would make her worth about $5000.00 (but priceless in our hearts :-)

Prayer Request for Bella the Cat

Please keep Bella and all the other pets in your prayers. I posted a prayer for sick pets on the side bar.
My little cat Bella has been in the hospital for the past 4 days. She is having intestinal problems and doesn't want to eat. She is having x-rays today because all her tests are coming back normal. Please pray that the doctors will find the problem and are able to fix it. Also, for her healing and that she starts eating on her own. All prayers are GREATLY appreciated. I love Bella with all my heart and this has truly been very hard for me to see her sick. Thanks to all!

Prayer Request for Bender the Cat

Pete needs our prayers for his missing cat. As the owner of a cat who went missing for 4 months, I can really sympathize with Bender's human family.
Our cat Bender has been missing for over six months. We continue to search, but I sometimes lose hope. Anyone who wants to offer prayers for our little boy Bender, they would be most appreciated. For more about Bender and our efforts to bring him home, please check out Bring Bender Home. Yes, we made him a blog. :) Thanks, everyone! -- Pete --

Prayer Request for Callie the Cat

My friend Jean has requested our prayers for Callie:
Hi Esther,

I would like to request prayers for my seven year old cat, Callie. We just learned that she has diabetes. She also has a bladder infection. She is now on a special diet and taking medication for both, but refuses to eat and sleeps constantly. We are very concerned about her. Would you please add her to your prayers? Thank you.
Praying right now for Callie.

Prayer Request for Penny the Dog

k has requested prayers for her dog Penny
Please pray for my dog Penny. She is just over one year old and has had some digestive problems following her spay. She does well on the special food from the vet, but I know that is not the real solution to what is going on inside of her. Through all this she has maintained a wonderful spirit and is full of energy, but I know she is not truly at her best. Please help us find and solve the problem so my pup can be healthy and strong again. Thank you so much.
I am praying right now.

Thanks again to all of you who join me in prayer for these beloved pets.

Prayer Requet for Xeena the Dog

The following was left in the comment section. Please say a prayer for Xeena.
Please pray for our boxer Xeena. She had her spleen removed on 5/17/09 because they found a 7mm tumor on her spleen. We pray and ask for your prayers that the results of her liver and spleen biopsy come back benign. I cannot stop thinking about her and tearing up every few minutes. This is the hardest things I have been through and I am sure it's even harder for her to go through it. I'm afraid that she can sense all of our worries and fears about her right now. Please pray for our boxer Xeena so she stays with us for many more years. She will be 8 on July 1st and she is just too young for cancer take her. She is very strong but we need more strength from upstairs to help her concur this.
I am praying right now.
