Prayers for an elderly & sick cat
« on: October 26, 2010, 07:07:24 PM »
Please pray for "May", my neighbor's sweet little cat.  She's 9 years old and has recently lost a lot of weight and become very weak.  Her owner isn't home much and I'm caring for May during the daytime. She just seems to want a warm safe place to sleep. Please pray for her comfort - and also that her owner will give me permission to adopt her so I can care for her full-time. Thanks!

Lord, have mercy on the sick kitty and her owners and all involved!

9 y.o. is not that old for a cat.
Love never fails.

Lord, have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Thanks - you're right, 9 is not that old, but she seems to be winding down, poor thing.

She's sitting next to me purring - perhaps absorbing the prayers. :)

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Through the intercessions of St. Modestos & St. Francis, LORD have mercy and heal this cat.  If it be Your will, may Theistgal become the caregiver.

Lord, have mercy on that poor little kitty.

Please take her to the vet even if her owner won't. :(

Yes, my husband and I agreed we are going to take her to our vet - will update thread when we find out what's going on.

Thanks!  (May says "Mew!) :)

She's holding her own, and her owner insists she's been to the vet again - I don't see any change in her condition.

However, she still has enough spunk to chase off any other cat that tries to sleep on HER blanket! :)

Lord, have mercy on May.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Thought I would update to let you know - May's owner told me this morning that "May is no more". 

:(  Thanks for all your prayers - I'm sad but also relieved she's not suffering anymore.
