Go Dawgs!

You may wonder:

  1. Why did he title a blog post after the University of Georgia's war cry on a day when Auburn is playing LSU ?
  2. Why did he put a picture of a cat on blog post that is titled with a canine, rather than feline, theme.

Well, the answer to both is simple. Our cat, Sabrina, is very ill and the the doctors at Intown Animal Hospital referred us to the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. Yesterday, Amy drove Sabrina to Athens and she spent the night in the Intensive Care Unit. She was found to be anemic and hasn't eaten since Wednesday. She is in danger of a couple of life-threatening conditions and we want to be sure that we do the right thing by Sabrina.

She's been in our lives for 8.5 years. Amy and I picked her out together after we had been dating for about 5-6 months. We got her in February or March of 1999 and has lived with me (and later us) ever since. She was about a year old when we got her, so her tenth birthday is not far off. Please say a prayer or hold a good thought for the next few days.

We received word yesterday morning that Sabrina's body is not destroying red blood cells, although her red blood cell count is still low. They felt that they would need to insert a feeding tube so that she could get the nutrition she needs. That turned out not to be necessary. Yesterday, she started nibbling on food, so that's a good sign. We should get another call from the hospital in the next couple of hours.
