sick kitty worries

September 6, 2009 at 11:08 pm (this and that)

Penelope has been sick. I guess she’s been sick for a while and I didn’t realize. She’s lost two pounds in about a month and isn’t eating well. Her liver enzymes are elevated and the vet doesn’t know why so Tuesday we are going to get her an ultrasound to see if we can determine what is up on her insides.

Today was better. She ate nearly a whole can of tuna and drank a lot of the tuna-water after a few days of only nibbling at her proper cat food, so good for her! Her eyes are brighter.

We are taking it one day at a time. I love her very much and so I am worried, but hopefully things will get better for her. I think the tunafish stimulated her appetite– she used to love drinking the tuna water when I used to eat fish, and she went the hungry cat equivalent of blood simple when she smelled it.

Poor Pod. She’s so grand.
