Kitty Update

I am taking my personal day/floating holiday to care for the ailing kitty.

Penny made it through the night, though she had a bit of an accident and her cozy mat is in the wash right now.

Last night before I went to bed, she managed to scramble onto the futon (always swathed in plastic because of "other Cat" issues). I tucked her in there.

This morning, she was ravenous (not unusual--she's the one who wakes me at 5 to be fed each morning). I hand fed her a little, dribbled water into her mouth, then went into the bathroom. When I came out, we played "where's Penny?"

She had dragged herself into the kitchen (maybe 30'?) and was drinking from the water dish.

I am hoping that we have turned a corner. But I'm not holding my breath.

I figured that since she was looking so much better, I'd attempt to get her Prednisone into her. What a lot of fight there is in that sick kitty! I had forgotten the fun of "pilling the cat" since Sparky is so used to pills that she sits obediently and takes them.

I've swapped out her regular litter box (the Rubbermaid bin with the high sides) for a regular litter pan (I'll vacuum up the mess later).

I've remade her bed with her pink blankie and towels (and the plastic).

Plans for the day: knit, watch Penny.
Hang in there, Penny! Hope all goes well, Ann.

My thoughts are with you and the kitty. I hope she'll pull through.
