Think good thoughts for our cat

Our beloved cat Maggie had to go to the vet tonight at 1 AM, and the upshot may either be a pinched nerve or more serious damage. We’re pretty doting cat parents and very worried for her, so please keep us all in your thoughts today.

Here are some pictures of Maggie, leading off with everyone’s favorite:


Sitting on her perch with her head off the side in what we call “depressed teenager” mode.


Here with our other cat, Harume.


The early years.

Update (noon Sunday): she had a spinal fracture, and she’s no longer with us.

  1. If the vet can’t figure it out, see if you can’t find a vet who does animal chiropractic and/or acupuncture. Sounds goofy. perhaps, but what my vet was writing off as “probably arthritis” in my dog (chronic bad limp) turned out to be a spinal misalignment causing a pinched nerve.

    I’m sending good thoughts to your cat.

  2. Thanks, Marcia… Yeah, when we were there at 3 AM, they didn’t notice the spinal fracture, but when we checked back at 11, they did. I really appreciate your posting, thank you.

  3. Hi Guys,

    I am thinking of you both tonight. She had a great home for the past 6 years!! I will call you guys later on this week, we need to catch up. :)
    Take care and kiss mae for me!

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about Maggie passing. Just seeing that picture of her in the sink made me smile–so I can only imagine the millions of smiles she must have given you over her life.

  5. I am so sorry. I can see that Maggie was a sweet and fun kitty and, having said good bye to more than one beloved cat myself, I understand what a loss this is. She was a very pretty cat.

  6. Maggie will forever be in our heart as a sweet and gentle being. I know that her spirit is now one with the universe and therefore with us always.

  7. I’m a new visitor to your blog, so maybe this doesn’t mean much, but I’m very sorry for your loss. She was (and is) clearly loved.

  8. Awwwwwww she is such a cute kitty. It’s so sad to knw she’s gone *cries* I hate it when I lose pets cos I love them so much. I’m so sorry for your loss

  9. So sorry. Such a beautiful kitty, I know you must miss her terribly. My black cat Cypress died a week ago, and you have my sympathies. She’d had lymphoma for a long time, and it turned out to not be as under control as we’d hoped. But we were fortunate to have had a lot of good years with her. I’m trying hard to focus on that, but it’s not easy. I’ll be thinking about you and Maggie as well.

    I’ve been delightedly following your work since the Paper Doll Boutique days, so you know.
