Wouldn't You Just Figure

Holmes hasn't been eating much. So today, along with her fluids and vitamins, and antibiotics she got the deluxe examination from the vet herself. This woman has known Holmes since she was a kitten. I/we have faith in this vet.

Today, after the examination, Holmes got some Regalin, to settle her stomach. She has developed another problem that you would never believe in an 18 year old cat, tonsillitis. She now goes onto a 3 week course of Baytril (an antibiotic) and prednizone (a steroid) for the tonsillitis. They do NOT operate on 18 year old cats for tonsillitis. Not no way. This is going to be fun.

Her weight is down to 4 3/4 pounds. She needs to start eating soon.

Here's the current FDA Pet Food recall information. There was a recall this weekend.

If you could use something calming and peaceful, go see Echomouse's Otter Post, and leave Carrie a hug while you're there!

She's tiny. Hissy and I are sending her healthy vibes and maybe a care package of yak butter to fatten her up.

Holmes came up and woke the two of us at 5 am this morning, to play. It's her birthday. She's officially 18 today. She blocked the door when it was time for me to go to tai chi. She wanted to play in the bathroom sink.

She snarled at a crow that she thought was trying to chase away one of her friends, one of the cardinals. The crow was bigger than her, but left anyway. I'll go to tai chi tonight, it was worth it being here with her.
