For non-regular visitors, Cardie is a cat that I am looking after while her very elderly female caretaker is in hospital after a fall. Cardie is very thin and small. She weighs 6 pounds (about 2.8 kgs). She has a poor appetite. She is currently staying at my home as I can monitor her better, especially feed her with very tasty food etc.
I took her to the vet and he diagnosed cancer of the colon/intestine and said it may have spread. I have learnt that she started to lose weight about 5 weeks ago. I also know that stray cats were entering the home of Cardie and her caretaker.
Cardie is doing fine. She sleeps well, eats a bit, has gone to the toilet and has played today. She is kept apart from my cat Charlie. Thank you for the interest in Cardie and your support. You can read some comments about her here.
Regular visitors might like to see her. Here is a picture I have just taken:
I’ll keep you posted.
Update: Here is another picture taken with flash:
Important note: I have a little bit of a problem publishing this picture. I have criticized people for exploiting the cat in videos etc.. I want to make it clear the reason for this page is to show concerned people a picture of Cardie. This page has advertising on it (automatically generated) but will probably make a very small amount of money i.e. $5 over a long time, as a guess. I’ll be donating ten times that to Kays Hill Sanctuary over the New Year. This is an animal sanctuary supported by Ruth and Babz in the north of England.
If people think I have done wrong in publishing this picture today I will remove the page. Just tell me straight if I am right or wrong.
