The topic: She’s giving up (or is she?)


After the fluids last night, she's showing no improvement this morning. She won't eat anything.

She did last ngiht, but this morning, nothing.

And she's really dehydrated. Again.

Holding her is like holding a ragdoll. She has very little strength. I think she's slowly starving to death. What little she eats goes right through her and a month of medication isn't working.

She was at the fountain outside this morning and Brian turned it on, so she could lap from the falling water. He said "you notice her breathing?"

Yeah, she's having a hard time with it.

I'll be calling the vet to make final arrangements this morning.

Or maybe I won't. She just came inside, crying in the kitchen. I placed different types of food in front of her, nothing interested her.

Then I scrambled an egg. She's eating.

I told Brian I'm going to give her fluids, but hold off on her meds today. Maybe there's something there that she's not processing. At this point, I can't see her doing any worse.
