Ali the black kitty just turned five years old a few days ago. It wasn’t a sure thing she’d make it to that birthday because she’s had serious health issues this past year, coming close to death too many times. Now, her veterinarian says she can’t survive much longer, and I know Ruth and Tim’s hearts are breaking.
Ali’s more than just a family pet. Ruth’s husband Tim has serious health issues, and Ali is his best buddy. When Ali does well, he does well or better. She snuggles with him, comforts him, helps him deal with the vicissitudes of dementia and his other health issues. He could be her kitten, for all the love and care she gives Tim. They are inseparable.
Now, this beautiful creature, this loving and sweet kitty is near her end. Prayers for Tim and Ruth while they prepare for the sad day they have to see their little companion pass into memory.
UPDATE ON ALI
Per Ruth (sunsetdragon): “I wanted to tell you that we got a call from our vet and she has new medication that we can afford that she is certain will help Ali. She has been on the phone with her mentor who is a vet back in Chicago, and Ali meets the criteria of felines who this medication will help.
We have hope.”
Good news! Let’s hope and pray this helps Ali to come through this medical crisis!
