Indie Is Dangerously Sick

I'd planned to do an excited post about my book tour, but I came home to a very sick kitten, and somehow I just can't.

At first, Steve thought Indie was lethargic and not eating because he was missing me. As a result, the alarm bells didn't ring until late Saturday night, when he took a turn for the worse and Steve rushed him to the emergency vet. We took him back this morning, and the vet kept him. They're doing tests but not sure yet what it is--he may have come to us with FIP, which is being complicated by exposure to a flare in Huck's chronic toxoplasmosis. Whatever, he's very dangerously ill.

I think I took all the heartache from losing Banjo last summer and poured it into the tiny kitten that showed up at my door a few weeks later. He's the sweetest little guy imaginable, and I'm so afraid.

I think we all kind of feel like Indie belongs to all of us since we've seen him grow up through these posts. Hopefully the news won't be as bad as feared. I'll say a prayer for him.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. We should get the test for toxoplasmosis back tomorrow; there is no test for FIP.

I am so sorry. It seems that we are always destined for heartache when we get our pets, but I would never choose to not have them because of all the love and enjoyment they give us in their short lives. My thoughts are with you and the little one. I hope he pulls through.

So sorry about Indie. I do hope the vet is able to help him. Such a shame when everything else seemed to be going so well for you.

Thanks so much. We've had him such a short time, but he has utterly stolen our hearts.
