As you can see she's still pretty sick. Although she did respond to the little mouse we got her.
She must be force fed and medicated every 6 hours. So midnight and 6am, midday and 6pm. Not sure how this week will work with my office but if it's too stressful I am taking this week off again.
So far, we are exhausted. Cleaning her up is a nightmare as you can expect. But the great news is she ate 1/4 can of food this am .... Yippee!! She is up and about this morning, scratching at the bathroom door (we can't let her out coz of the other cat). She is really wobbly but I am hoping a few days of home care and she will be much better.
DH - knee deep in runny smelly yellow poo at 5.45 am this morning, grinned and said - lets think of this as a dry run. Yeah. Good idea. Excuse me.... AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
I told my mum what was going on and she said "hey you guys were not that difficult. You slept through the night at about 2 weeks. This is more stressful than the baby idea coz she's sick. Now a sick baby, yeah, stressful."
You listening Kitty?? Your monkey mama here was a quick learner. Catch up will ya.
So now, here I sit in my lovely smelly bathroom, blogging. Getting ready for my first table reading in 20 years and wondering how all this will turn out.
This is stressful. No doubt. But she ate. She cuddled. She played a tiny bit and she has a been yelling at us when we clean her butt. I think this is ok? What do you think? She's really lethargic but she does move every so often, even if it's just for a wobble around the bathroom. She is using the little cat litter box even if it is all gloppy yellow liquid (tmi, got it).
Shall I stop expecting the worst? Anyone been through feline fatty liver disease with underlying infection? Any words will be most welcome.
