It’s been a rough couple of days. Our aging, arthritic kitty Beijing suffered a ‘collapsing episode.’ I drove her to the emergency animal hospital Sunday night where they immediately placed her in an oxygen tank. In addition to the arthritis and mild kidney disease we knew about, it turns out she has an enlarged heart, known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy along with an irregular heart rhythm. Our poor, sweet kitty.
The vet weaned her off of the oxygen and stabilized her overnight. I moved her to our regular vet Monday morning.
The better news is that all three conditions are manageable with medications. She gets to come home in a few days.
I’ve had two sad boys on my hands since sharing the bad news. It will be nice to let them know she’s coming home. The goal is a simple one: keep her feeling good.
Here are a few favorite pics of our ‘Beige’ enjoying life in the garden. I can’t wait to see her lounging there again soon.
