LittleBit Update

So far, so good. After her last barf-fest (just before my previous post) I took all her food away so she didn't have the chance to hork-and-hurl. Haven't given her the dry food since. However, I have been feeding her micromeals of just the canned food blended with filtered water, decreasing the water-to-food ratio to the point where her next small serving should be just the canned food. If she responds well I'll head to bed. So far she doesn't seem to object to the tiny, infrequent portions. Hopefully whatever is in her system (and I know it wasn't our germs MrsL ) is working its way out and she'll be fine in the morning. At least she seems to be the same generally as normal. She's a pretty lazy cat to begin with, so no telling if her lethargy is normal or illness-related!

Just like last time, I checked our plants - no bit marks or anything. Not much she can get into unless she found something strange on the basement floor.

Fingers crossed, it will be an uneventful night. Himself has to be up by 8:30 to get to his state-required pep-talk because he's still on unemployment. Better him than me.

It must have been hork day for cats...Latté puled that yesterday, too, soon after she ate the canned food.

I managed to get insulin into Smudge last night, as long as I don't hold her down I can pinch and shoot into her flank.

CG, I'll keep my fingers crossed that your kitty is on the mend.

PF, glad to read that you got the insulin into Smudge. I hope this technique continues to work with her.

PF, what a pretty lady. Her colours are gorgeous and unusual. I nearly missed the pix. I closed this tab and as it was closing, I thought I saw something, so I opened it again. You had posted the pix while I was typing a reply.

She's Chocolate Point Siamese and I believe tabby. Her tabby markings were more prominent when she was a kitten and much lighter. She looked like a cup of coffee as you were stirring in cream.

Shrek must have her baby pics on his computer.

How's your kitty doing today CG?

Shreddy is sitting next to me with his paw on my arm. (aww)

Earlier today, I saw a squirrel in the backyard, so I put some walnuts right next to the patio door. I put the rest of the walnuts on the bookshelf, where they would be handy for squirrel feeding. Shreddy was watching. He saw the squirrel come to the patio door. Later on I saw Shreddy checking out the bookshelf. I think he was looking for the walnuts, so he could tempt a squirrel to come to the patio door.

I subscribe to Beagle Freedom Project, an organization that rescues beagles from medical testing labs. While this is not my beagle (Beagle's legs are much shorter!) I loved this pic. Boo is a different kind of hound, (a Harrier?) but looks beagle-like, and was a medical experiment dog too, enjoying her first taste of freedom:
