Prayer Request: Robbie

robbie picture

You’ll always know her by her white bib.

We were just about to go to bed last night when Robbie broke into a very loud seizure that lasted two or three minutes. Then she got up and walked to one of her favorite sleeping places and lay down. After some time spent soothing and comforting her, she seemed pretty much back to normal–and I didn’t have to make a midnight ride to the emergency veterinary hospital (which is always very hard to find at night!).

She seems all right this morning, so far… but let us have your prayers. Please! There’s only Patty and Robbie and me, everybody else in the family has either died or moved so far away, they might as well be on another continent. We need the love our cat gives us.

She’s 17, so we don’t want to put her through any severe and stressful medical procedures. Let her continue on the medicines she already has, and for the rest, rely on prayer and love and tenderness.

Please pray for us. All three of us.

    1. You were a great help to me when my lovely cat developed cancer, roughly six years ago. Be assured on my prayers for Robbie.

      Pets are greatly important. They are a gift from God.

    2. Thank you. Maybe if we’d had children, the loss of a pet wouldn’t hit us quite so hard. But that’s one of those hypotheticals that can never be put to the test.

  1. Oh, Lee, I’m so sorry to hear about Robbie’s troubles — and yes, I always keep the three of you in my prayers. I especially understand your anxiety and grief since I lost my darling Iggy in July. And I also know what it is to be left more and more alone as others fall away. I just heard from my last remaining relative of my generation — my “baby cousin” Alan in Florida, who’s now 77 years old. After telling me about two more deaths — the wife of his deceased older brother and a distant cousin on his father’s side — he called the two of us “the last of the Mohicans.” My only other relative is the daughter (in Texas) of another deceased cousin. And that’s my whole family. I still weep for Iggy now and then.

    So yes, I’ll keep praying. Poor little Robbie. Poor Lee and Patty. My heart is with you.

  2. Well, I see I was labeled anonymous again. Don’t know what is up with that, but will
    try again. Meanwhile, doesn’t stop me from praying.

  3. Absolutely agree with all that pets are a gift from God. And I completely empathize; I was never blessed with children and every loss of a pet hit me hard. I will be praying for all of you.
