Roscoe's Health Update

HEALTH UPDATE

Roscoe had a morning visit from the vet today, she made a house call, and was given another IV. Roscoe spent most of the day resting and didn't eat or drink anything all day but was aware of his surroundings listening for his mom's voice. Before bedtime tonight Roscoe was offered to lick on an ice cube, which he liked. He then seem interested in eating and was offered some of his favorite cat treats that were broken up in small pieces for him, he ATE FIVE!

I have been worried about my brother and am letting the humans know about that. They have been really good about giving me time with hugs, pets, kissess, and assuring me that things will be OK. They said the best thing we can do is to let Roscoe know how much we love him.

Tomorrow they will take Roscoe to the doctor's office and we should know more about what is going on with things. Please keep your prayers going and all of your kind words and thoughts have made our family feel a little better.

If you would like to light a candle for Roscoe to get better soon please take this photo with you, if you want you can pass it along to your friends too.

A big thank you to Sassy for making the photo of Roscoe with the candle. We would also like to thank Zoolatry for the wonderful photo they made of Roscoe in front of the Italian flag. They told us that the colors of the flag represent faith, hope and charity. We are keeping the faith, we have much hope, and we thank you all for your charity in the form of your kind thoughts.
I will keep in touch with you and let you know what is going on.

Thanks for all of your support,
Opus

Glad to hear that you took some licks of the ice cube and ate something. Hope this means that you are feeling a little better and that tomorrow you will even feel better than today. Good luck tomorrow at the vets. I think that is really nice that the vet came to your place to make sure you were taken care of. They don't do that sort of thing over here in the USA, don't know why that is though.
Please, please, please get better soon. I am so worried about you.
