Thank you to those who have sent Cammie their best wishes, and those who have thought about her.
I took the princess to the veterinary just before noon on Friday, and an injection of Cerenia was administered. It was suggested that, though the medicine would start to take effect thirty minutes later, best results would be obtained by waiting a couple of hours. I locked her in the bathroom again, to see later if she would throw up any more. When I returned from work, a few hours later, no vomiting had taken place.
Cammie ate soon after. I kept her portions small, but fed her soft-food several times through the evening. She was uninterested in hard-food. The Cerenia has now worn off, and Cammie appears to be in low spirits. I think her stomach may be feeling a little queasy once more. Even so, nothing has been brought up, so what food she has eaten will go to keeping her organs moving. I hope, like the last time, she will improve as the food gives her strength, and the lack of upchucking gives her incentive to consume more nutrition.
Cammie weighed 4.27 kilograms at the animal hospital, which means she lost a pound in the few days she hadn’t eaten. I would like her to take in some hard-food, as this will put some weight back on her; it has no water, of course, but she is drinking again, after not wanting any water. The doctor stated that my princess was still hydrated; that was encouraging.
Now, my cat is in our metaphorical Recovery Ward. There always seems to be one of my roommates in that location. But as long as when they leave it, they head upwards, I don’t mind worrying about them a little beforehand. I just hope their stay is brief.
