Well apparently the BitsyCreations family was not meant to have cats. You may have read about our new cat a few weeks ago here. We did get him. We brought him home & he was instantly part of our family. We couldn't think of a name--after a few days of calling him "sweets" and "friend" and "love", we named him "Fred" because, well, if you had a smooshed in face like that, wouldn't you sound constantly congested? Think of how you'd say, "Friend". hehe
Fred is the sweetest little boy I've ever met--He purrs the second you even look in his direction and crawls into your lap to snuggle the isntant you sit down. We noticed Fred's tummy was a little bloated, so we set up an appointment with the vet just thinking we'd get to meet the new doctor and set up a time to have him (the cat--not the dr.) neutured.
Turns out dearest Fred has not only a bad hip and knee, but also has Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). It's basically a really bad virus he won't recover from. The vet gave us a matter of months. We've had Fred for only a few weeks, but like I said, he's already part of the family. Not to mention it brought up all the horrible feelings of losing our Muffs all over again. :(
I don't even know what to feel right now. My sweet hubby reminded me that it's not US. I know that, really I do. I just feel like I'm being picked on. Is that bad? I still feel ridiculously blessed. I have a wonderful life. But really? We just lost our sweet Muffs in December. It feels like yesterday. I can't deal with another sickie. :(
