    I’m terribly, terribly sorry. I wish I knew something smarter to say, but it’s so painful. Taking my Simon to the vet this weekend, and I have the feeling it’s the same thing starting, as I went through it before with my Top Cat. You guys…you’re in my prayers.

    Please keep us updated.
    We feel what you’re going through. My kitty is ten, with a heart condition, and has so far outlived the vet’s prediction. I hope the same for your kitty.
    ::hugs for you and your family::

    I took my dog of eleven years in this morning to cross the Rainbow Bridge. I can’t tell you how sorry I am for you. It’s truly devastating to say goodbye to a fur-baby. 😥

    I’m so sorry the news. I lost a pet this year and I’m familiar with the pain. Big hugs.

    I’m so sorry. =( Miracles can happen and hopefully he gets better. I know how devastating it can be to lose an animal…they become a part of your family.

    I’m so sorry to hear that.

    I hope that the steroids help.

    I’m thinking of you and your family.

    We had a similar situation with our dog summer before last. So I understand a little of where you are.

    Okay, this is going to sound lame, but try adding goat milk to his food or just the warm milk straight if that’s all he’ll eat. You should be able to get it at least in powdered form if not in liquid form from either a whole foods store or a big grocery store. It’s much gentler on an animal (and human)’s stomach than cow milk and high in vitamins/minerals/calories. It’s used as an almost universal milk replacer for all species. My grandpa had stomch ulcers and he used it religiously to soothe them.

    Good luck.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
