All through the day I keep praying - "She will live and not die" "God is restoring health unto her" and many other verses from the Bible. We haven't even started her on the medication which has side effects of its own. All your prayers are highly appreciated.

Sorry to hear of your cat. I empathize. I have lost many dogs and cats.

But, I do want to say, everything dies. And everything that dies is precious to someone, somewhere. But that doesn't change it.

Which is harder? You as a child losing a pet to death? Or, watching your children lose a pet to death? A parent knows the answer.

Sometimes, it's just time.

Me and my mother don't always agree. She was going to give Lucy the meds. Lucy is in no condition to take the meds right now and in general the meds have horrendous side effects. I talked to the vet and she said since the thyroid is only slightly out of range it's ok not to give the meds. I prayed that my mother has a change of heart and agrees not to give the meds and she did. I am so happy. I said "Thank you Jesus" Lucy is doing a little better (knock on the wood) she is eating and scratching a little less but still scratching herself.

Wonderful to hear, poor kitty.

You are going everything you can for Lucy. She is well blessed and I'm so happy that your mother agreed with you. Good news that Lucy is eating and scratching less
Still praying.

So, unfortunately Lucy is not doing better. She is still scratching herself. And now she started coughing again as if she is choking. Happens only once or twice a day, but I was hoping that it self-resolved. I am torn as to whether I should take her to the vet I mean the whole scratching started after we took her to the vet. She must've had an allergic reaction to something outside or at the vet's office. The vet's office didn't let us in because of covid, they just picked up Lucy and took her inside. I thought of taking her to a different vet but to my total shock it appears there is a real crisis in the vet's profession. At least here in New York. I went on Yelp and started reading reviews for vets in my area. Most of the reviews are totally atrocious - the pets being misdiagnosed, neglected, mistreated and died so I really have reservations about taking her to the vet they do more harm than help. Honestly I don't know if she is going to make it. It really pains me to say this I love her so much, I mean she's been with me for the past 15 years. I keep praying that the Lord spares her. I think maybe the Lord is trying to teach me about Heaven. I struggle with the concept of Heaven. I mean I believe in God and Jesus with all my heart. And God has helped me and delivered me more than once. So I have absolutely no doubts about God. But I still struggle with the concept of Heaven, life after death. It just seems too good to be true. Please continue praying for Lucy. Thank you so much.

Continued prayers for Lucy. Poor Kitty. I want you to know that Heaven is for real (good movie too). It really is too good to be true. I really believe our pets will be there too. That is just my prayer. I know God gives us the desires of our heart.

Thank you for your kind words. It is the only reconciliation to know that if she passes she is in a better place. I was really happy and doing well. I started my own business, finished an online course. Things were looking up and then this happened. Thank you again for listening and for your prayer.

So sorry to read this Marianne333
Things seemed to be getting better for you and Lucy. Praying Lucy will be healed ny The Lord. Nothing is too hard for Him.
I believe in heaven, but it is hard to imagine what it is like. We know animals will be there.
Praying and God Bless you and Lucy.

Thank you so much for continuous prayers. I keep praying too I think God heard my prayers and she is a little better today. She does not look miserable. There is a park near by where I live where I go often on the weekends. It has a lake, birds and butterflies. The air smells of freshly cut grass. I look at the sky and think I wish that this is how Heaven is. Even though I think it is infinitely better. Thanks again, God bless.

Praying for you and Lucy. I am glad to hear she is feeling a little better. I know she means a lot to you. The park sounds really nice.

It is like a roller coaster with cats Marianne333
Really pleased that Lucy is picking up. Your park sounds lovely. I like going to places like that too.
I agree, the new earth will be even more beautiful.
Still praying.
