Lisa, maybe take a steps back from any decision making just this instant.  You're clearly upset, and very worried, and it's understandable when Leo has been sick.  Have they said which type of this illness he has?  I've been reading up on it, and it appears to take one of two forms, one of which will often respond to treatment very well.  I ask because I wonder if this is what your vet is contemplating?  It's so hard for us when we're faced with a very sick cat, to know what to do for the best.  We love our cats, and because of that we don't want to see them suffer.  But it can also lead us to panic and pre-judge a situation. 

I would perhaps caution "wait and see" for today, and have another chat with your vet.  Worrying about work isn't helping this situation, and it's difficult tot hink straight when you have so much on your mind.   :hug: :hug:

Me, Moray, Malt & Barley are all sending uber-strengff snoozles and soothing vibes for Leo.   :hug: :hug:  :hug: :hug:

Just been on the phone to the vet again as Leo woke us up being sick and I'm pretty sure that there were little blood clots in it. He said he thinks it's probably the steroids that have given him internal ulcers. He looked awful after  he'd been sick and I thought he was going to die there and then  He got up 5 mins later and sat by patio door so I have let him in the garden an he is sitting in our beach tent we have. Vet was talking about changing his meds. I am not sure I want to do this. I hate to see him like this but the vet (after all that's hapened) seemed to sound surprised when I said I wasn't keen on this idea. I have no clue as to how work are going to react now. I am due back tomorrow. I've had the last 2 week's off with him and 1 of those days was unpaid as I have no holiday left. I'm dreading letting them know I won't be in tomorrow.
I think as soon as 9am comes I am going to call the vet out and end his misery. I seriously cannot see him ever getting through this  :'(

SORRY ONLY JUST SEEN THIS AND CAN ONLY ECHO ALL THE GOOD ADVICE

MY LATE NAPOLEON HATED BEING IN THE VETS BUT WAS VERY ILL BUT PULLED OUT ALL LEADS AND STUFF BUT IB A PREVOIUS VET HE TRADHED HIS CAGE COMPLETLEY.

THEY LEFT IT SO I COULD SEE WHST HE HAD DONE AND COULD HEAR HIM SHOUTING AS I ENTERED THE VETS.

HE LIVED FOR A LONG TIME AFTER THAT BUT ALWAYS REGRETTED TAKING HIM BACK TO STAY AT VETS

GO WITH YOUR HEAD AND TRY AND STAY CALM, LISTEN TO YOUR VETS ADVICE AND WHILE HE SEEMS HAPPY AT HOME AND OK THEN I AM SURE HE IS

GOOD LUCK, SUCH A HARD PLACE TO BE

Thanks ladies. I have been writing everything down since he came home from vet 2 wks ago. He is usually a very feisty cat who only really tolerates me and my 5yr old daughter. He isn't overly friendly to anyone else & has a bad reputation for his attitude but we love him and wouldn't have him any other way... I long for that fiesty  boy back  :'(

Its horrible when anywhere other than their own environment stresses them out to the point where you have to bring them home isn't it. He needed to stay on those drips but it's too much for him.

 He just rolled over and showed me his lovely belly which is more like him. It's just a rollercoaster of emotions. He was my baby when I couldn't conceive naturally and never thought we would afford ivf. I feel so stressed having to go back to work tomorrow and leaving him as I've been out about 3 times in last 2 wks. I will dash straight home at lunch.
I work in a contact centre and it's stress stress, abuse, swearing, and more stress.. about 90 calls like that on a Monday  :shocked:

Pray my day goes quickly  :thanks:
