UPDATE..GRAYCIE HAS BEEN RECOVERED! Our neighbor found her this morning. We have her at the vets over the weekend being assessed. She has gone from 9 to 3 pounds, so they are keeping her to rehydrate her, syringe feed her and warm her, draw blood to make

Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! A happy end ! I'm sooooo happy that you have your cat back ! Tears are in my eyes. It is so horrible that you lose a pet, because of other people, and you can't find it.; you feel so hopeless. But when you get it back... SUNSHINE !!! Hopes she recovers quickly and you can spoil her a lot !!

by bikermomfl 04 Dec 2011

being a major cat person I hope the long term outcome is good, I wonder since she was found so close to home that she had been catnapped and then dropped off and found her way home. When I was a little girl my mother took my cat to a 'farm' and dropped her off! She came home a month or so later and was so thin, but she came around and mother said if she loved us that much she could stay. Hope your girl recovers fast and you can hug her to pieces. I am mommy to 6, 5 boys and a girl Isis and she is my avatar.

hightechgrammy by hightechgrammy 04 Dec 2011

Isis is beautiful - what a cat story! We had a troubled kitty once who couldn't handle the other cats in the house, so we found her a loving, one-kitty home. They never changed her tags, and we got a call that someone had found our "lost cat." We got her back again. She never did adjust though and had to become an outdoor kitty - she sprayed everything - LOL Nitty was her name

hightechgrammy by hightechgrammy 04 Dec 2011

her back and had to turn her into an outside kitty because she sprayed everything. I didn't know a girl would do that! Her name was Nitty. She never did adapt.

OH MY HEAVENS! Great news, but such a HUGE weight loss but I see lots of hugs and grateful tears and the loving heart of her Mum that will soon have her on top again.
I will keep praying that she recovers quickly from her trauma.
What a pity she can't talk and tell her mummy all about her ordeal but I'm sure you understand her cat-talk. :-)))
I am so happy for you and Graycie.
Hugs and love, Meganne

Thank goodness! I just about jumped out of my chair when I saw this! You didn't give up and she knew it. She must have found her way back! A few more days and you will have her back - at the moment it's best she is where she can have the best care to make sure she is OK. She will be just fine once she gets home to you.

Vicki, I'm still just floating with joy! What has the vet said so far about her recovery? We need an update! Doesn't it make you wonder how far away from home she was all along. Maybe she was holed up just close by and was too afraid to come out...... I am just soooo thrilled and praying her kidneys and liver will be okay. Love and purrrrrrrs! Jan

2 comments
basketkase by basketkase 03 Dec 2011

That is what we are thinking, because she was found only 5 houses up, & by now so weak that she didn't resist help. The vet put her on a warmer right away (her temp was way down) and they will force feed her through a syringe with baby food because that is high in protein & give her subcautaneous fluid. Her only concern was her kidney & liver function because of her age (14) due to the starvation. From 9 to 3 pounds is huge!

basketkase by basketkase 03 Dec 2011

is high in protein. The vet is mostly concerned with her kidney & liver function right now because of her age (14) due to the starvation. She couldn't even stand on her own..she didn't have long to live on her own...

I knew it. You didn't give up hope and neither did she!! And with your TLC, she will recover, and the two of you will build an even tighter bond. I'm happy to learn that she is now a found kitty!!! Do not be afraid to stay at the vet's office with her. They do not mind. That way she doesn't think she is being punished for being found. They will let you stay during business hours. I'm sure they know what this means to you....and her.

God is great!! Our neighbor lost their cat at a gas station and it was 4 months later that they finally got him back. Like Graycie, he had lost weight. His canine teeth were both broken but he was back and got a clean bill of health from the vet. They capped his teeth and a year later he is showing no signs of his misadventure. I am thrilled for you and Graycie! God does answer prayers! Merry Christmas!
