emoticon Dear Shelly,
It was nice seeing your note, Shelly. I'm so happy to hear how Tiger is doing well.
I will let you know when I'll be at home instead of on the go. I may go to my Cancer group the same day Kathy heads home. The following week things should be getting back to norm. I've missed my daily routine with Spark People and all that goes with it.
I look forward to our next talk.
Love & prayers, Janis emoticon emoticon

Jainis, it's great that your sister is there. I know you are having a great time with her. My sister from Chicago will be visiting me in a few months! Thanks again for your prayers, and lets talk when she leaves.

God is so good! Praise and thanks be to God!

Yesterday was a joyous day! Tiger was acting more like his normal self. He played with a toy for the first time since he was hurt. I am so grateful to God. Today he has a lot of energy, and is not in pain anymore, at least I think he is not. Well, I know he is not in the same kind of pain which he was in before, I am so happy!

Thanks Missy for your prayers. emoticon

Dear Shelly,
Please know your precious kitty was added to my prayers when I saw the message, I believe that was two days ago, and I haven't been on the computer as much with Kathy here. We've been away from the house every day. Yesterday & today we have her 50th High School Class Reunion to go to. Today should be alot of fun!
Please know your prayer intentions are always a part of mine too.. Glad to see your Baby is doing much better.
Love you very much, Janis & Kathy emoticon

"Shelly, you can make something good out of this or you can waste it. How can you make something good out of this?" This is what God has been speaking to me in the trials I am facing. Thank you for the reminder.

So glad Tiger seems to be on the mend. God is merciful.

Thank you all so very much! Your prayers have touched my heart! emoticon emoticon although the vet said that our cat just pulled a muscle, or strained something it still was hard to see him limping, and throughout the night meowing in pain sometimes.

I knew that God was talking care of him; yet seeing him in pain was really... I can't even explain it. It was way beyond hard. I can't say I have ever felt that way before. On top of that, I feel so helpless, and all I want to do is comfort him and take his pain away. I have felt this way about family, but never an animal because my 2 cats have never been injured before. I know I would feel badly if my cat hurt himself in any way, but to have my cat in pain as the result of my own hands... that is something else entirely. Each time my cat meowed out in pain I knew I DID that, or he was in pain as the result of ME. I will never drop my cat again until he is 1 foot away from the carpet.

So yesterday was exhausting. I was so surprised that my body felt so beat up over this. I am not used to not having peace within my life even though I experience harsh trails, or circumstances. I had peace, but as as the day wore on my body had taken a toll, and although my mind was at peace, I felt the effects of the stress I had experienced... Does that make sense?

When my cat first started limping, and meowing in pain I told myself, ok, here we go. It is my way of bringing God into it. I gear my mind up, and put on the armor, and try to center myself in God. Sometimes this is hard to do, and I would say I was only half way there for many hours yesterday. I thank God that by the end of the night I was feeling completely better, mind, body, and spirit.

Today I woke up and I saw that Tiger was cleaning himself. That is a good sign! I said to myself, "Shelly, you can make something good out of this or you can waste it. How can you make something good out of this?" I decided that I will use this to strengthen my reliance on God. I said, ok God I will let you in this area of my life as well. I never had to do that in this area of my life before- not with my cats. Only one time did we have a bad scare and think that Tiger was going to die as the result of getting a rabies shot. That only lasted for a few hours which seemed like days. He was only a few months old back then.

You see I believe that God wants to get into every area of your life. He wants us to experience dependence on Him with our health, our finances, our relationships, I mean God wants to get in and do a work in EVERY area of our lives. If you don't let God in and learn how to rely on Him through it, well, the way I look at it you are experiencing all those emotions for nothing. We don't have to be successful in the way we think or act eacht each time. We just have to give it to God, try your best to rely on God, and try to figure out how God wants us you think and act as you we are going through it. That is what I have been doing.

I share stuff with you here to make God the center of my circumstances. I figure if I share this kind of stuff with you maybe it will help someone in some way. Not because I act the right way all the time. But I figure if I put it out there God will do something good with it ya know.

So, my cat has not moved around that much at all today. He is eating though. He has cleaned himself, which he did not do yesterday. I know my cat will be alright!

This is what Tiger looks like emoticon . emoticon

I know how you feel -- I loved my cat "Tumbles" and have no doubt he'll remain the Top Cat in my memories. Some people might not "get it" praying for an animal, but after a while they certainly do become "one of family." I will pray that you have wisdom on treatment(s) and their costs, and your cat's quality of life will be greatly improved. Hugs to you, and your cat .. Marilyn.

I will definitely pray for your cat. I've been through something similar with my previous cat and I know exactly how you feel. God is with you both.

Tiger doesnot have anything seriously wrong with him. The vet said that he probably just pulled a muscle or strained some legimients. If he was not improved in 2 -3 days we will be taking him back again for some x-rays.

Thank you for your prayers. emoticon Thank you God for taking care of my cat.

Verses in the bible have power, and God uses verses in the bible to give peace and healing in our lives. I sought God and asked him to show me something to read which would bring me more comfort. I looked in the baxk of my bible and looked in the section which has subjects and then verses to look up relating to each subject. I looked under the word peace and found this:

Job 22:21 Amplified Bible

Acquaint now yourself with Him [agree with God and show yourself to be conformed to His will] and be at peace; by that [you shall prosper and great] good shall come to you.

I am writing this because if anyone else on the team is hurting, or is has found themselves in a bad situation, I want these words to give them peace as well.

I am going to leave to go the vet now.

DEFIANTVEGAN thank you for your prayers. I just finished writing what appears below. I have one hour and 20 minutes to wait. He has been eating, yet remians mostly in one spot, under the bed. My husband has been home with me and we will move the bed if Tiger is still there when we leave have to leave his appointment.

I will post again when we get back from his appointment, which is 2:20.

My appointment for Tiger is at 2:00 and the time has stopped in my life. I just want to have my cat seen, and be told he will be fine; I want to HEAR the words.

But, I need to trust God and believe without the words being said to me that everything will be fine! I have been crying, and telling myself this would not have happened if I would not have picked my cat up. But it was not like I threw him down or anything. Why would a cat be in pain if he was just let go from your hands? Maybe he fell on his back leg the wrong way.

It is in times like these which a person needs to get real with themselves. I am telling myself that if I trusted God I would not be feeling anxious, and worried. I am no longer scared.

I am going to read my bible and say another prayer. Writing these posts have helped me. I am beginning to feel a lot better now. This is not the worst thing that could have happened to my cat. I know that the day will come when Tiger dies and the circumstance will probably a lot worse. I have never had any problems with my cat except one time he reacted badly to a shot and almost died- that was horrifying! Who knew that a common rabies shot could cause a cat to almost die due to a bad reaction to it?

There are times in life that you have to wait. There is nothing you can do; there is nothing which can be done. I know that there are times when a parent has a child who is undergoing a surgery and all you can do is trust God and believe the best. Such times are much much worse than what I am feeling or going through. I do not have kids. Although I do not call myself Tigers mom, he is very dear and close to my heart.

I will use these next few hours to rest in God. He has been here all along. I know that He feels my pain. God thank you for being here with me. I thank you that you gave me a husband who cares so much for me that he will do anything to help me feel better through this. God you are in control and you will not allow anything to happen to Tiger or me that I cannot handle. I say in your name Tiger is healed. I have been praying asking you to heal Tiger since he landed on our carpet. I claim your healing. I will no longer react as though you are not with me holding my hand. God you are in my heart. I feel you and I love you. Thank you dear God, I don't want to be here experiencing this. But through you dear God I have been given peace as I type out these words. Around 11:00 all I wanted was for this to be over. Yet, out of this experience my spirit was leaning against you. You held me up Lord. Although this was the last thing I wanted to happen today, I thank you that your Holy Spirit helped me.

I just went into our guest bedroom and Tiger was no longer under the bed. He was lying right next to the bed on the floor. I was so grateful. I believe God answered our prayers! I was able to give Tiger some love and observed him for a while. I did not touch his leg or any other part of his body except his head and neck as I was petting and scratching him with my nails.

After I lay on the floor with him for a while he wanted to go under the bed again. He likes to spend time under the bed, but I am also aware that if a cat is dying or injured they will seek a place where they feel safe, and away from others. As I was saying no to him each time he tried to move closer to the bed I thought that I maybe being under the bed would make him feel better, so I left him crawl back under the bed.

Tiger is eating, and I realize that this is a good thing. Het is no longer meowing like he is in pain, like before. I will be taking him to the vet, and will update this post when I know more.

I called our vet before I wrote this post and explained what happened and she said that maybe he strained a muscle. I made an appointment for 4:00 pm. I just called them back and told them I was very scared and worried, and they told me that he could be seen sooner than 4:00. I want to take Tiger in NOW. I called around to try to get Tiger in at any animal clinic or vet and I can not find a place which will see him sooner than my appointment at Highpoint animal clinic.

I am grateful to God that I was given an earlier appointment. After I got off the phone I felt at peace. There is not anything which will happen to me or my cat that God won't carry me through.

Before I felt so badly, and I couldn't stop crying. But people have been praying for me, my husband, and my mom. Also since I wrote this post my friends here have been praying too.

My cat is under a bed, and I can't get him out. I will not try to get him either becuase I don't want to perhaps injure something. I was lying next to him before went under the bed. I had to get up and when I went back to where he was he was gone. I felt much better being able to keep my eyes on him, but God's eyes are always on us and the ones we love. I know and believe God is taking care of us.

I am starting to feel sick. Why am I feeling this way if I trust God? Well, I am going to check on my cat again. I am afraid to move him, so please pray that he comes out on his own.

I know that much worse things could have happened to my cat, but for me anything that happens to my cats... it just hurts me no matter if it is a big or small thing.

11:00 am Thursday

About 30 minutes ago I was holding my cat and I let him go. However, when he landed on the carpet he let out a long hissing noise. I have picked up my cat 1,000s of times before and dropped him inthe same fashion he has never acted in such a way. After he landed on the floor he started limping! I feel so awful.

emoticon I can't help but to feel like this is my fault some how! I am very upset and I am crying. I have been praying to God ever since Tiger landed on the floor. I have faith in God that He is taking care of him.

I just want this to be over with. But I will use this day to totally relie on God. I know that it is in timesl like this that I must walk the talk.
