My baby "BABY" just passed before Midnight on Saturday night. I have been checking on her every 1/2 hour. The last time was around 11:30 or so, I did some reiki telling her it was OK to pass. When I went back in she was gone, and now I am a wreck...

Dexter is a Kitten Rescue cat that is available for sponsorship! He is about 9 years old. He was surrendered by his past owners after he became aggressive with their toddler. Dexter still exhibits his aggressive personality towards some people by swatting and batting at them, but he is nice and friendly with others. In addition to his unique personality, Dexter also has an enlarged aorta that requires him to consume medicine daily and undergo periodic examinations with the cat cardiologist.

I am posting this video to give others the courage to give their cat a subcutaneous treatment. I was really dreading it, but as it turned out, it wasn't too bad. I made three errors: 1 - not knowing how to twist the old needle off. 2 - not turning the flow off before pulling the needle out. 3 - not using the same plastic cap for the old needle that it came with. Also: four helpful hints. 1 - every time you do a treatment, move the plastic "cut off" wheel to a different area of the plastic tube, so it won't damage the line or let it leak. 2 - When inserting the end of the line into the drip bag, make sure you push it all the way in to avoid leakage. 3 - Use a box cut short and the end cut mostly out, with a soft warm weaving or towel in it to be your secound "pair" of hands to help contain your kitty and keep him or her in place. 4 - Use a bowl of warm water to put the line in if needed, so the fliud isn't too cold going in. Good luck and when you get that feeling of apprehension, overcome it with a feeling of determination to get the job done.
I created this series of videos to help others administer to their loved ones.... their cats, in the hope that it will help them set up
the subcutaneous treatments and also to give them the courage to do
it. I am by no means a veternarian and don't claim to be... as you
can see. I just love my baby and will do everything in my power...
which isn't much, to extend his life. He isn't even 4 years old yet.
And this great spirit has been sentenced to death by inheriting
polycystic kidney diease. I don't do it for me, but for him.... he's
always trusted me with his life and we have a very special
relationship. So this is the first of seven videos to set up the
procedure, and then the first treatment done with no training, just
research on you tube, thanks to the videos, and they are:
