Abby is home again.
She is perky and moving around. Or rather prowling around every inch of the house looking for a way out.
She would not eat at the vets and (except for the messy diarrhea) she refused to defecate at the vets. So they have sent her home with antibiotics.
The first thing she did when we let her out of her travel container was make a beeline for her litter tray and empty the fullest bladder I have ever seen a cat carry. She must have been in pain.
Although she has no sites of possible infection (except for where the drip went in) we have been asked to keep her in for a couple of days to watch to see if she vomits after eating. We have managed to get her interested in a few bites of kibble so far but not much. It’s probably better that she eases back into eating slowly anyway. She’s well hydrated from the drip and we have until tomorrow morning to see if she will continue to eat. The fact that she has started is a good sign. So far no signs of vomiting and she continues to alternate between grooming and escape plans.
It’s a good thing I went on my stash diet. Abby’s extreme foraging hit the hip pocket harder than any of the initial estimates. But isn’t that always the way? Just glad she’s home safe and making a full recovery.
