Making Progress: WCB #26.
I want to thank everyone for sending along good thoughts for Macroom; it's been a stressful week for us!
As you may have read from Clare's blog, our little kitty has been quite sick lately. Our vet warned me there was a really good chance Macroom wouldn't pull though, but was hoping the medication she prescribed would make a difference.
I'm happy to report that after just 24 hours from his blood-boosting injection, and the first round of pills (two kinds), he's shown a marked improvement!
The past week Macroom has done little more than sleep. He wasn't eating, drinking, using the litter box, 'talking', interacting, cuddling...anything. He was breathing laboriously, and would just look at us...but not do anything.
After the shot and pills, he started walking around the house. He ate a bit of food (Chicken of the Sea? Thank you), and mewed enough to get Wicklow worked up.
Best of all, he jumped up on the couch, and cuddled with us last night.
So, another set of pills, and he's doing even better!
Eating more, 'talking' a blue streak now and then, following us everywhere, and full-blown snuggling.
His breathing is still a bit ragged, but when the vet calls tomorrow for an update, I can honestly tell her Macroom is doing a lot better.
Because there is improvement, we'll continue with this method of treatment until next Monday.
Hopefully, by then, he'll be much better.
I promise to keep you guys updated, and thank you again for keeping us in your thoughts!
And don't forget to mark your calendar for this month's Blog Party, Vegas, Baby!. We're all about giving in and indulging this time around, so start planning those entries!
