Kitty Update

She's hungry! She's even eating a little bit of her dried food from the vet (to prevent more UTI) and it's staying down. Baby steps though - when she eats and asks for more I'm telling her she has to "starve" because she doesn't get more until a bit later. She's being good so far. Hasn't tried to gnaw my ankle.

PF, Smudge looks like she does have a "smudge" on her nose. You have two cute kitties.

taxy, so glad you and Shreddy can get back to cuddle time. There is something so relaxing when you have a kitty purring on your lap. Or chest. Or neck. Relaxing until they start to lick with their tongues. What are those things, razor blades?

My granddaughter's cat Tasha would sleep on my GD pillow at the top of her head. She liked to play with her hair while GD was sleeping. Then when GD would move, Tasha would pretend she was asleep.

CG, glad to hear your kitty is hungry and eating and it's staying down.

Shreddy ate too fast and horked. Next time I fed him I told him that he should eat slower so he wouldn't hork, and he did eat slower! (and didn't hork)

Addie, when Himself sits down in his chair to watch TV LittleBit walks up his chest until he's fully reclined so she can tuck herself right under his chin. He does have a beard of his own, but he looks more like a member of Duck Dynasty when they cuddle.

Thanks taxy! So happy she's feeling more normal - whatever "normal" is for a cat, that is.

They do have a way of worming their way into your life whether you want them to or not. If that is his place to sleep, then so be it. And don't anyone try to change it.

Yes, thanks Taxy. She's loving her food again. DH and I really thought we would have to put her down, she was so sick for so long.

He also seems to be feeling better today. He's been running around and even went into Stirling's office to get Stirling snuggles.
That is so good to hear!!!
