The topic: Little update


He wanted to sleep, I saw him with his head down a couple of times. Then there was noise outside and he got off the bed.  He just sat on the little runner next to the bed.  Then I watched him walk outside, still pretty wobbly, I went out with the camera and took a couple of pictures of him. He came over to me, I put the camera down and held him.  It got really warm, he wanted down. He just sat there, dazed.  I picked him up and took in inside and put him on the sofa. 

I felt his ears, they were much warmer than earlier and I was able to get his temperature, he has a fever, 102.8°. 

Poor baby.

How’s he doing, Diane? I’m so worried about him!

He seems to be a little better. We had a little nap earlier, he was right up against me. Later he got up into the bay window in the family room by himself (it’s right behind the sofa).

He’s not really interested in food right now, but he is more alert and his eyes are looking better.  He’s not looking so worn out (although he still looks worn out). I called his name in a let’s play type of voice and his head perked right up. And he’s watching me.

The vet has told me on many occasions that it will take at least twenty-four hours for the full effect of the fluids. And he’s also told me a cat who is dehydrated just feels crappy.  Like we do when we’ve had too much to drink or have the flu. The body just isn’t working like it should.

But the fact that he is looking better and he is being a little perkier, is giving me some relief from my worry.

And worry we do, right?
