The current weather is weird, it just rained a little

The topic: To the vet tomorrow


I’m taking Ciara to the vet tomorrow at 11:00.  She’s still improving, but I don’t like how rapid her breathing looks. Maybe she’s just a fast breather, I don’t know but I’ll find out tomorrow. 

She peed in the litter box in the crate and when I was taking the clump out to the litter bucket, I came back in to find she’d pooped.  I took the whole litterbox out to the garage and used a paper towel to squeeze the poop.  It was a little dry when she started, but the rest was okay.  I’m concerned about her fluid intake, although she passed the hydration test, her skin popping back nicely and not tenting at all.

She spent over a half hour this morning cleaning herself and a cat who grooms doesn’t feel really bad. 

She’s eaten a little bit, even got her to nibble on some kibble, which she hasn’t done since she’s been crated. I’ve been adding water to her soft food, hoping to up the fluids she’s getting.

She’s responding to affection, she came out and let me pet her for the longest time.  I went in a little bit ago and she rolled over and gave me her belly so that I could comb it and give her some rubs on it.

I just don’t like her breathing.  It seems too fast.  I keep comparing her to the other cats. Wally is breathing a little fast, but her’s is faster. She’s breathing deeply, it doesn’t seem to bother her, she’s not gasping for air,  it just seems too fast. At one point, when she was purring for me, it seemed like she wanted to sneeze, but nothing happened.  I hope it’s nothing.  I pray it’s nothing.

I want her well.
