Prayer Request for Callie the Cat

Our friend Jean is requesting more prayers for Callie. If you recall, we posted about Callie's diabetes in May.
Would you please add my cat Callie to your prayers for pets blog? She has diabetes and has been very ill with diarrhea lately and has been having a great deal of trouble walking on her hind legs. The veterinarian thinks it may be the diabetes medication that is causing her to have trouble walking, but both my husband and I think it is something more serious. Callie spends nearly all her time in the closet now. (She's only 7 years old.)

Thanks for your prayers.
Please keep Callie and all our sick pets in your prayers.

Prayer Request for Cosmo the Cat

Prayer Request for Astig the Dog

The following prayer request was left:
Please pray for astig, she's been with us for over 6 years and she's suffering from pyometra. She's been under medication for more than a week already, but i don't think it's working. It's so hard whenever she cries because i can't do anything to ease up her pain. I'd rather be the one in pain instead of her. According to her vet, astig has to go under surgery which will cost us roughly 9,oooPhp/195 U.S. dollars. Of course we can't afford that, so her vet suggested we put her to sleep instead of prolonging her suffering. I've other 6 dogs but still, astig has been part of our family so... We'll give it a week and see what happens. It's just so sad. I'm praying for a miracle. Please pray too that i make the right decision. Thanks for putting up this site, such a great help to all of us who love our dogs so much.
We ask for the intercession of St. James and Blessed Seelos, patron saints of veterinarians and St. Roch, patron saint of dogs to help Astig and our other seriously ill pets.

Message to Astig's owner: I found the following at this site:

In the late 1980’s another treatment protocol became available that might be able to spare a valuable animal’s reproductive capacity. Here, special hormones called “prostaglandins” are given as injections to cause the uterus to contract and expel its pus. A week or so of hospitalization is necessary and some cramping discomfort is often experienced. The treatment takes place over the course of a week. This form of treatment is not an option in the event of a “closed” pyometra as described above.

* There is a possibility of future pregnancy for the patient (though often there is too much uterine scarring). Surgery can be avoided in a patient with concurrent problems that pose extra anesthetic risk.

* Pyometra can recur. The disease is resolved more slowly (over a week or so). There is a possibility of uterine rupture with the contractions. This would cause peritonitis and escalates the life-threatening nature of the disease.

Lucky the Dog - Sweet Story

Thanks to my friend Ann for sharing this with me:

Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky.' Lucky was a real character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing.

Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.

It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this fact; she was just sure it was fatal.

She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders. The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her...what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through. If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want to leave him. The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.

The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalized f or over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.

Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap. Lucky stood watching Mary bu t he didn't come to her when she called. It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed.

When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life. He had covered her with his love.

Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day. It's been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky? He still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure.

I can't bear to lose Riley too. She is my little baby and follows me everywhere.

Praise Report on Honey the Cat and Big Mahalo to the Blue Cross Animal Hospital

This morning I had to bring our lost and eventually found cat Honey to the vet. She had a black looking toe which was sensitive to the touch. My husband thought it was a tumor. And, because she had been lost for a long time, we thought we'd better have her checked out for other problems.

The vet ran tests and looked at her toe. Apparently, the toe was infected. The good news is that other than a few minor problems, Honey is in good leukemia or FIV.

I know this has to do with the prayers we pray daily for our pets. Thank you so much!!

I also want to thank our vets at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital. They really do care about the animals they take care of without gouging the owner.

The veterinarians and their staff are in my daily prayers as well.

Prayer Request for Gozmo the Cat

Mary Ann left the following prayer request:

You are most welcome Mary Ann.

My little Emi is 8 months old, 2.9lbs. She is the sweetest, most full of life little long haired chihuahua. I recently took her for a spay and found her liver enzyme levels to be very high. After bloodwork after bloodwork, she has some sort of either liver disease or a liver shunt. She is not symptomatic at this present time but the vet says in time she will show signs. My husband and I cannot afford to pay for the diagnostics and surgery/treatment so we are at this time tryng preventative/alternative methods to protect her liver and pray to God her little body will pull through. Please keep her in your prayers that she will be strong enough to fight this off so she can live a long and healthy life with her big brother Chico, who will be turning 5 this month.

Please keep Emi and all our sick pets in your prayers.

Prayer Request and Praise Report for Jack the Cat

I received the following comment from Caroline:

I have offered some prayers for Midnight and hope that he returns safely and soon.

Please also pray for my cat Jack. I cant seem to find how to request a prayer on the board. Jack went missing earlier this year and his name is listed on this board. We have recently gone on holiday and had friends looking after him at our house. However when we returned we realised he has probably moved to another house as we were not there. I am heart broken all over again and hope and pray that he will return shortly to see that we are home.

Thank you

And, before I even had the chance to post the request for prayers, she left the following comment:

A few hours after leaving this post I received a call to say someone had found Jack. Thank God. I will continue praying for this wonderful blog and all the missing pets and their owners.

Thank you

Thank you all for your daily prayers as the Saints have once again interceded for our pets.

Prayer Request for All Animals in Danger of Being Killed

The following request comes from Erin in Florida.

Because animals do not have a soul like human beings, we will pray instead for those animals in danger of being put down and for their owners that they will find a more humane solution when they no longer want their pet.
This is a prayer request for two unknown cats that were just euthanized this morning, and for the other 100+ dogs & cats that the local animal conrol euthanizes every single week.

Just a couple of hours ago I was at our local animal control shelter to get microchips for my most recently adopted cats. While I was standing there waiting, a lady brought in her two cats to be euthanized. She said she had to put them down because her fiance was allergic to them and she could not find them homes.

I thought the shelter would put them up for adoption, but apparently if you request a euthanization, even on a perfectly healthy animal, they will do it right away. The facility is so understaffed & overburdened, I should not have been surprised. And I know that people like this come in every day. The staff there is very caring- I do not know how they handle the stress.
