It is said that cats have 9 lives. Mr. Bing came to us in 2001 and in 11 years fully used his 9 lives hunting, being the meeter and greeter in our house and running the household with 2 female cats. In July 2012 Mr. Bing was diagnosed with Hypercalcemia (too much Calcium in the blood). He was losing weight quickly, had diarrhea and occasional vomiting. I made the decision to treat him with complimentary approaches rather than submit him to surgery, chemo and ongoing medical care. This is the story of how we gave him a 10th life. Read earlier blog entries to see his progress.
As of this writing Mr. Bing has started to decline again. He has lost over a half pound (down to 7.2 pounds from 8) since Dec. 29. His appetite is less and he seems to be struggling with pain again. He is restless and has diarrhea again. He comes up frequently for cuddles and healing energy. We continue Raindrop therapy and Arnica but it doesn’t seem to be making much difference. I ask him to let me know when he is tired of this and ready to go.
