Oliver

...Happy New!

I am so sorry this year did not start out with a bang on the blog!  However, inside the studio, and everywhere else here at BB, we have been rockin!  I have never had a year get off to such a great start!  We even have a speaking engagement and two trunk shows under our belt with many more to come!  I will get back to that shortly as well as showing you a sneak peek of some new designs this next week!  ...So excited to share exciting new and designs with all of you!  I have truly missed you!  

Anyhoooo.... I have have to show you my latest love of my life.... Oliver.  
Oliver was given to me for Christmas by my husband... and honestly, he is just amazing and the sweetest thing ever!  He won me over ten times fold!  Ever since we brought Oli home, he had sever diarrhea (which we have been working diligently with our vet to get rid of).  Other than his stools not improving, Oli was enjoying his new & active life at our home.  Then, all of the sudden, last Saturday, he took an unexpected turn for the worst.  We ended up taking him to the Vet ER.  After many tests (with no answers), we learned that his white blood cells were extremely high and that he was indeed suffering from neurological disorders.  (These were awful to watch and see him not be able to get rid of - my heart broke!)  After more vet visits and little or no improvement, we ended up signing our rights back to the owner/breeder.  Since Tuesday I have been just sick... However, after visiting him twice a day (hoping my love will help him!) at the pet shop...  I see a spark inside of him lit up again for the first time since Saturday.  I have never lost the faith, but I had exhausted my options and had to "let go" and pray that he would get better and receive the intense care he was in need of.  Although he has a long way to go and we have no answers - (other than a rare, but possible, side effect caused by one of the meds) as to what is causing the neurological disorders... I am hoping one day we will be able to bring little Oli back to our home and give him all the love he needs!  So - if you get a chance... a little pray for our little guy Oli would be greatly appreciated!  Stay tuned.... :)

I feel badly for little Oliver. What a precious name too. Our daughter wants to name her little boy Oliver.
But anyway, I do hope his health improves. He's a cutie.

Glad to see you posting again and very glad the year is off to such a good start for you.

Your blog posting is touching. Good luck with your journey with Olli and I hope he will be back in your home and in your arms one day.

Happy to see you back on your blog. Your designs are wonderful and we always miss you.

What a sad thing to happen. I know of another person who got a new kitty and it had genetic problems, so you never know. I always get strays, so many gene mutations, and they tend to be hardier, but I lost one this year to a genetic heart problem, so was surprised to find that can happen.

I hope they can help Oliver and he can find his way back to your home.

Stacy, I'm so sorry to hear about little Olli's health problems. He is just as precious as can be. We had a similar experience quite a few years ago with one of our kitties and it was very hard. I hope he can pull through and live a good, long life. ~Roberta

Omg!!! What a cute little guy he is in my prayers. I know you just have to be sick over the whole situation. He will get better.

Linda said...

Oh, so sad. He just looks like the sweets little bundle of joy! I will pray for him. Pets are like our children. :-)

What a cutie. I had a cat once named Fluffy who looked a lot like Oliver. She would have random seizures. The vets couldn't find anything wrong with her. She was my favorite of all my pets. She would get sick easy. She did live to be
8 1/2 years. I hope little Oliver takes a turn for the better.

When you adopt a kitten you get what you get. Sorry you didn't have the humanity in you to help this kitty. I pray for your selfishness. Sorry to put it this way, but I am sickened by people who only want perfect animals. Why bother? They will die one day from something, will you walk away on an older pet who gets sick, too?

As I laid in the hospital bed I started thinking that I had a show to do. I was hoping the Doctor would put me together so I could do the show.
