I never feel so alone as when one of my kitties is sick. I can't bear to see them in pain. My little baby girl Babycakes has some ulcer on her tongue that's causing her a great deal of discomfort. We are on Clavamox right now but it hasn't kicked in yet. My poor girl is hiding because of the trauma of the vet visit and it's breaking my heart that she doesn't trust me. I have to give her this medicine and I'm not sure how I'm going to do it since she won't come out. I was wondering if any of you have any experience with kitties with ulcers on their tongue. The vet did blood work and it came back clean so I have no idea what's caused this just that my baby hurts. Every time one of the kitties get sick I wonder how on earth I'll survive without them. I honestly don't think I can. Sorry for spilling on everyone but I needed to get that out.

8:57 PM PT: Got a 2nd dose of meds in. Thank God for tuna and that she's still hungry!

This is Babycakes

Wed Aug 24, 2011 at 8:39 AM PT: Well, we got dose 3 in and she's eaten some tuna. She's still hiding but between the vet visit and the meds she's pretty traumatized so I'm trying to leave her in peace. She seems OK otherwise so we'll see. She's still having some trouble with her tongue but I'll give it a bit longer before I overreact. I have to go to work tonight but I only work a few blocks away so I'll come home at supper tonight to check on her.

Wed Aug 24, 2011 at 4:28 PM PT: She's still hiding and I'm scared to death. It's breaking my heart to see her so afraid. And I had to go to work tonight though I went home at supper to check on her. She's under the couch. Some idiot I work with had to tell me about the tumor his cat had in his mouth and how his cat died. I freaking hate him right now!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
