Re: Sad cat news

Can't you board Sandy at the vet's while you're gone?

RE > long hikes through airports
you can get skycaps to drive you on a golfcart to your gate. Check ahead with the airline.

RE >  less expensive to fly... and ..I dread it, but have no choice.
Try to be open-minded. It could be fun. I gather it's not the expense that bothers you but the lack of choice. I spent 3 days on the train many years ago without the luxury of "a reservation in one of the larger rooms". It wasn't the best way to travel but it was quite entertaining. If time weren't a factor, and I could sleep in a berth rather than a seat, I would like it better than flying. Give it a chance; you might be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks so much for all your support and prayers.  The issue is not yet
resolved.  Today the vet was surprised at how much better Sandy seemed,
so she recommended putting off a final decision.  The problem is that we
are leaving on Thursday for ten days, and don't want to burden the persons
who will be feeding the cats, and also don't want to leave Sandy untended
if she is likely to go into a decline. Today she seems like her old self, but
the vet says that may end at any time.

Some time ago there was a discussion here of train travel. I didn't pay too
much attention since I had no experience to share nor any plans for such
travel. However, since we have given up our usual semiannual trips to
Chincoteague, Chet has decided that we shoud visit our youngest son in
Colorado. Flying is such a hassle, and he is just not up to the long hikes
through airports, so he and #3 son decided we should go by train.  This is
a major undertaking - involves a layover in Chicago and two nights on the
train.  We have a reservation in one of the larger rooms, and they promise
"red hat" service to handle our baggage, etc.  It would have been less
expensive to fly. Anyway, Chet is quite excited at the prospect. I dread it,
but have no choice.  I have laid in a stock of mysteries to keep me going.
At least the visit should be fun.  We are promised that our youngest
granddaughter will play in a soccer game - three-year-old soccer has to be
the most absure idea I have heard of in a long time. This three-year-old is
already competitive - dominates her six-year-old brother completely.
It seems that the Logan girls are the jocks in the family. My older grand-
daughter, now out of college, has had a go at competitive swimming,
all sorts of horsey sports including barrel racing, and crew at college. The
boys, unfortunately, have not been outstanding in any positive way.

All that doesn't make our cat problem any easier, but I am trying to take it
day to day and see what happens.  Again, thanks for all your support

Just had a call from the vet.  Sandy, our elderly, obese, arthritic, but

cat wasn't feeling well yesterday, and threw up repeatedly.  We took her
for tests.  Today she seemed much improved, but the vet says the tests
show almost complete kidney failure, and that her improvement was the
result of fluids they injected at the hospital yesterday. It looks as if
treatment could be difficult, painful and complicated, and not at all
to work.  So I guess it's time to let her go. I don't want to subject
her to
a lot
of misery if it ultimately won't help.  We're going to be away in
too, which would complicate matters. It makes me really sad, but I know
rather be put to sleep quietly than go through all sorts of treatments,
so I
feel that's the best thing for her.
Just one more thing in this depressing summer.
