Slasher Sale for Sabbath!

I know I have mentioned our 2 cats (AKA our kids) Sabbath and Ichabod before on my blog but today is a very special post dedicated to Sabbath AKA “Sabby”. We noticed she has not been eating and had lost a significant amount of weight.We thought she had been getting more hairballs etc so decided to get them a different type of food in case the one they currently were on was starting to not agree with her. Nothing was working to get her to start eating again. What we thought to be hairballs we soon realized was nausea and vomiting when all that came up was foam, saliva, bile etc. She was not going to eat and she was starting to act less and less active. Desperate to help her we took her to the vet last week. They did blood work, urine testing, exam etc. Needless to say she was in anorexic/starvation mode, had a UTI and her levels for her pancreas and liver were very high. She is on the edge of getting the very deadly fatty liver disease. The vet said we were very smart to bring her in before it got any worse or we would have found her at home dead. Grocery money was spent between the vet and scripts but thank god that we did. We have been syringe “force feeding” her when she won’t eat on her own on top of administering meds that she fights us on taking. All while hoping after all the work she doesn’t throw it all back up.

She has her good days and her bad days. She is done with 2 meds which were a supplement for her liver and an antibiotic for the UTI and pancreas. We were unsuccessful with the antacid meds so the vet said to not stress her out with them ($28 down the drain there).

I called and gave the vet an update on how she is doing and had to go back in to get 2 new scripts and more of the special diet food. The one pill is an anti nausea and the other is an appetite stimulate. The goal is to get her eating atleast 1/2 can of this food from the vet a day. The more she eats the better she will get. However with her being nauseated it is really hard to get all that much into her and for her to keep it down. Hopefully these meds will do the trick. If she does not get better we will have to bring her back to the vet where they will have to keep her there for days force feeding on iv nutrition and getting her hydrated etc. They would also run more tests etc.

Now that you got the back story I want to let everyone know that I am running the biggest discount sale I have done in my Etsy shop to help with the vet costs, meds, special foods etc. We are trying our best to not have to bring her back to be hospitalized as it will be money we currently do not have and would have to borrow/loan/get credit etc. It would help if we were prepared incase it comes down to it.

So with this sale you can pretty much say I am eating the cost of supplies to make my items and giving everyone that uses coupon code SABBATH at check out 50% off their order (for any pre-made/ready to ship items – hit me up and we can discuss a possible separate discount of sorts on custom items)! If you have ever wanted something from my Etsy shop now would be the time to do it. Not only would you be helping Sabby out but you would also be getting something cool at a really discounted price! This sale starts today and it ends on 5/20. This gives you 10 days to take advantage of this sale!

    I have decided to extend this sale as Sabbath has gotten worse. We had to bring her back to the vet tonight where they ran more tests and have to keep her for the next two days to monitor her, give her iv fluids, nutrients and meds. Her liver and pancreas are getting worse. The levels have increased and she has actually lost more weight despite all the hard work we have been doing to fight this! Her skin has actually turned yellow which shows she is jaundice.

    If she is not better by Friday we have to make the decision for them to proceed with surgery to insert a feeding tube into her esophagus that will go directly into her stomach. With this feeding tube we would have to give her all her food and medicine through it until she improves (if she improves).

    There is a 50/50 chance this will work. If it does not we will have to say goodbye to her and let her cross over the rainbow bridge. I am trying to stay optimistic that she will be one of the success stories. Anyone that knows me knows that my cats are my kids. Frank and I are not having kids and our pets are our family.

    In order for us to do all of this we had to apply for Care Credit. Someone despite the fact I am already in a debt management program they approved me for enough for what the costs are at this moment. The part that is going to hurt us is when we have to pay it back. That is where you can help! Please spread the word about the sale I am doing in my Etsy shop! It qualifies for any premade items in my shop for 50% off when you use the coupon code of SABBATH at check out. I am also willing to give a discount on any custom orders. The only thing I will say about custom orders is that at the moment due to everything going on with Sabbath that they might not be done right away as I need time to be with her and learn how to take care of her if surgery is needed (which most likely will be). She will be my top priority. So if you want a custom item but are in no hurry definitely let me know! I am not sure how long I plan to continue this sale but it will definitely be ran atleast until the end of this month.

    Thank you!
