a bit of progress


Last night I posted on FB that I was hesitant to go down and see Miss Lucy.  Before I open that door every possibility is possible (Schrodinger is in full force) and I could imagine that she ate every bit of food and was begging for more.

Finally I put on my big girl pants and went down and sadly most of the food still seemed to be there.  Maybe an ounce was gone.. maybe.  I turned and saw that some of the dry was gone - which is something.. junk calories are better than no calories at all.

Then I saw this


first firm stool since I got her!  YEA!!  Nice to know I was right about the Clav.. and just when I was starting to doubt that might have been it..   Sadly she did vomit, but it was 90% hair, so I'm not going to worry about right yet.

Lucy, like most girl kitties and quite a few boy kitties, has developed a thing for my husband..


Probably because he doesn't medicate, he doesn't groom, he doesn't poke nor prod.. I can't blame them.  He helps me water her but patting her and distracting her.  Last night I was able to get it all in her the first try with no leakage.. all in all a good night.

Now if she'd just eat, and eat heartily..

  1. That is one great firm stool! I know, only cat owners and rescuers can get over excited over a firm stool :) I know how hard it is to achieve sometimes. I hope Lucy starts eating well soon. She should, she is just a K short of lucky!

  9. WooHoo! Great photo to see (and yes, only on a cat rescue blog will you find people photographing and discussing poo... well, you might find it somewhere else, but that would just be strange)
