So, while the peace and quiet has allowed me to relax. The lull in activity has also forced me to look at things and realize the truth. You may not be able to tell from this photo, but little HB(who topped out at 10 1/2 pounds in her prime), is weighing in at about 5 pounds right now.
(And she was one tough kitty in her prime - she hunted mice and carried live chipmunks into my house - just for me. She would then "MAO MAO" at the top of her lungs, with her mouth full, to let me know she had a gift for me. She would wander the neighborhood and station herself at the edge of electric fences to taunt the large dogs who could not get to her. Tough. She is tough.)
While she is still drinking, she has almost entirely stopped eating her dry food. I've managed to get her to eat some tuna in the last day, but I feel she is beginning to fail. This morning, soon, we are making a trip to see Dr. Toogood to have a reality check. Wish us well.
When I took Jamie to the vet after losing a great deal of weight she asked when Jamie had lost all her teeth. Baby food kept her going a while longer. I hope you find the same...
Chief and Bert are sending good thoughts too!
