Prayers For Hope

We rescued this sweet thing today. She is very ill. Skin and bones, dehydrated and very weak. I am not sure she will make it. We cleaned her up, dressed a wound, gave her medication for tape worms, and are giving her water from a syringe. She is loving her warm spot in a box wrapped in Charlotte's old robe. Lots of purring and though she is too weak to play, her head follows a toy crocheted rope the kids made for her. She can not walk without falling down but since she does not appear to be in any pain, we decided to wait til morning....the vet I talked to would want to put her down. The kids want to give her a chance. They are calling her Hope....hoping she makes it. PLEASE say a prayer for Hope tonight.
Zach just hollered down to me that she was drinking water and eating some high protein "special" food we bought her. Maybe there is Hope.

Oh Bren, you know how much I love kitties. I have already said a prayer for Hope. I have to go to the dentist tomorrow, but will try to check in the afternoon. Been thinking about you, my friend. Winona

Hi Bren,
Poor thing. Hope is a lovely name. I think the purring is a good sign :)
She's in good hands, so she has hope too.
Hugs,
Sharon

Oh I hope she makes it too. Such a shame that someone would do this to a kitty.

Bren,
A kitten that we now call Eli wondered to our home in the fall. Poor little guy. He had worms, and had to be treated 3 times. Eli also had kitten lice that was draining his little body. We had to give him a bath very careful not to get it in his face or ears. The lice was on the underside of his neck. He has grown in the last few months into a beautiful young cat. He is very loving and acts as if he is thanking us all the time for saving him. He has beautiful fur now and his antics make us laugh. I hope your story turns out good too.

Oh the absolute darling. What a blessing that she has come to you...either to get better or to spend her last days with love and kindness. I have two little kitties just taken in abandoned near a lake..who can turn them away. Prayers for Hope.
