Pixie needs some good thoughts!


We need some special healing thoughts or prayers for Pixie today. My daughter came out of her room with Pixie in her arms and a long piece of thread, like sewing thread sticking out of her mouth. I tried to gentle pull the string out but it was STUCK and doing that seemed to really hurt Pixie, the string broke ;-(, so I knew that was not a good thing.

I threw on some clothes and rushed her to the vets. The vet could not see the thread in her throat so now Pixie is in the vets and they are going to try to induce vomiting. If she doesn't vomit, or they don't find the thread the vet says she wants to have her transferred to the emergency vets for the night to watch her, and of course surgery might be necessary.

Pixie is just over a year old-she is a tiny little girl that we got along with her sister last Valentines day weekend from a pet adoption fair. It is the first time we have got siblings like that and these girls love each other and have always been together. Pixie is the more shy of the two and the more scared, Ashe her sister is a very confident girl but Pixie looks to her sister for support a lot so this has to be really hard on her to be in a strange place without her support system.

I feel bad, I guess maybe I should have just rushed her to the vet when I saw the thread, but I was really hoping it was just in the top back of her throat, so I really was not sure what I should have done when I found the thread.

Anyway, will let you know when I hear what is happening and hopefully Pixie will be just fine for Christmas.

Oh Poor Pixie. When I was a kid our collie ate a spool of thread. He came down the hall with thread hanging out of his mouth. My mom kept pulling and pulling and the thread just kept coming. It finally came out. I guess he just passed the plastic spool but he was a big collie and not a little kitty. We'll be praying for Pixie.

Sending good thoughts to Pixie. I hope that she vomits it up and that surgery isn't necessary.

Poor Pixie :( Just a week ago I pulled a string out of my cat's butt. It was risky but thankfully it wasn't stuck on anything. It's always tough to know what to do in a situation like that.
