We are doing better

It's no secret, last week was bad. I really thought that we would probably be putting her down next week. I was making the plans.

But she is doing better and eating much better the last couple days. I think the appetite stimulant pills really helped. She even ate so much this morning that I decided to skip her breakfast pill. In fact she woke me up like normal this morning for breakfast and practically ate the whole can! I went back to bed after feeding her and happily listened to her wolf down her food from the other room. It's music to my ears.

I think her teeth cleaning probably contributed to a lot of her lack of appetite last week and now that it's been a few days that has probably helped.

She still gags some, but it doesn't seem to be as bad lately.

I got her some "Cat Milk" (it's processed so that she doesn't get digestive issues from it) and it was a win the first time I put it in front of her, but she has been less interested in it the last couple times. I'm still putting out little saucers of it though. Can't hurt.

Her favorite food lately has been what she always eats: Fancy Feast Grilled varieties (it's shredded and gravy covered). That's great, but we are still putting down all different types of food in case she decides to turn up her nose at the fancy feast all of a sudden. She is a cat after all.

Me and DH both think she feel s heavier lately too, but we haven't bothered to weigh her yet. I think we'd prefer to stay in delusion land a little longer.

So, I have temporarily returned to sanity. I'm still very bummed, but I feel like we have more time with her today than I did last week. That makes me happy.
