The topic: Requesting prayers, healing thoughts, positive energy….


Anything that might help.

Last week, Red started making this horrible gagging sound when he ate kibble I put out at night, the treat stuff.  It’s not big, it’s small little cylindrical pieces.  Then I realized his meow was getting raspy.

Like Lonee, he’s mostly feral.  With her, she got weak enough that I could grab her and get her into the bathroom to feed her (I wouldn’t try that now, she’s feeling much better).  I tried to get Red this afternoon and he left part of a claw sheath in my hand and ran up into the rafters.  I didn’t try to get him from there.

I’ve been emptying out the garage and giving him canned food with a little water added, hoping that he’d eat it.  I’m scared something might be growing in his throat. I’m hoping/praying he’s just got a sore throat.  If it doesn’t show any signs of resolving, we’ll have to do what we can to get him into a carrier.

We’ve got a net for trapping back in the shop, never used, still in the original shipping package. And earlier this year, we got Brian some trapper’s gloves, the kind with Kevlar in them.  And today, I figured out a way that we might get Red into a carrier. By holding the carrier in front of the hole in the door from the garage.  If Red thinks I’m gonna try anything, he’ll leave the garage and go into the house.  If there was a carrier there, he’d most likely run into the carrier.

Brian’s reluctant to do anything right now, he thinks it was be too traumatic for Red. But if Red gets any worse, there won’t be a choice.

So, if you can send any kind of positive energy his way, I’d sure appreciate it.  He’s a great cat.

He could have just picked up a bit of a kitty cold and has a sore throat. Maybe try to give him some antibiotics in his food for a couple of days and see if it helps, if you can get him some food by himself.

I agree with Norah.  One of our cats had the exact same symptoms, and the vet examined him and noticed his throat was red and looked sore.  One injection and a couple of days on amoxicillin mashed up into some baby food later, old Murrfy was fine again.  In the meantime, purrs and prayers and positive energy coming your way from us.

Poor Red, I hate when they don’t know you are trying to help them. You have our good thoughts, prayers, white light and whatever else will help.

You have both prayers and good thoughts.  Poor Red, how to communicate with him?  They get so scared.
