For my cat Montgomery's return to health


#1

My 12 year old cat Montgomery was diagnosed with diabetes a few months ago, and my family thought we were managing his condition well with insulin injections.

However, over the past few days he has gotten weaker, constipated, won’t eat and is generally lethargic. We took him to the vet today again today and he has to be hospitalized for the next few days because he has ketoacidosis, a life threatening complication with a high mortality rate. He is being treated with IV fluid therapy, insulin and symptomatic care, and when my brother visited him after work he said he seemed more alert and was eating (a good sign).

It is my hope that God spares him for a little while longer. He seems to be comfortable, outside of this acute incident. I know God’s will be done, but if you can please send prayers for his recovery, and pray for us, I would be so grateful. He’s such a sweet, good-natured boy. I’ve never loved an animal like him and had him since I was in college, my heart is so full to think of losing him. Thank you.

Praying for your dear kitty Montgomery. Dear Jesus, I ask in Your name to please help this kitty get well if it be God’s will.
Holy Mary, St. Joseph, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Francis de Paola, and St. Gertrude of Nivelles, please pray for Montgomery.

(If you haven’t switched to an all-wet-food diet for Montgomery, you should. Had a diabetic cat myself for years)

Thank you so much, Tis_Bearself. If he pulls through this, we will definitely be adopting an all-wet-food diet for him.

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal (Montgomery). You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into Montgomery’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. He’s doing better today. I’m not sure he’s totally out of the woods but he definitely seems stabilized for the time being. Please keep up the prayers. God bless you all.

St. Francis of Assisi, Lover of all Creation

Heavenly Father, You created all things for Your glory
and made Montgomery and his family stewards of their
precious cat. If it is Your will, Lord, restore this cat to full
health and strength. Blessed are You, Lord God, and holy
is Your name forever and ever. Amen.

(Oh, this is painfully relatable. One of my dear cats had to be euthanised after suffering with diabetes a few months ago. I pray that your kitty returns to health.)

Hear our humble prayer, O God,
for our friends, the animals,
especially for those who are suffering;
for animals that are overworked,
underfed, and cruelly treated;
for all the wistful creatures in captivity,
that beat their wings against bars;
for any that are hunted or lost or deserted,
or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put to death.
We entreat for them all
Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them,
we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves,
to be true friends to animals
and so to share
the blessings of the Merciful.

Dear Lord, please pray that the cat gets better. Amen


#13

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be…


#14

Thank you…he’s doing much better and although he’s slowed down a considerable bit, he’s acting like himself again.

So sorry to hear of your cat. It’s a sad thing to go through, and I’m not looking forward to it.
