Someone Has Been Praying for Kitty

...and this is to let you know, whoever you are, that your prayers are having a good effect. THANK YOU!

Kitty has taken three voracious meals today. Yes, I know, only three is too few at her tender age, but it's her call, not mine. And it's better than nothing, which is what she had been taking. Tomorrow perhaps she'll feel better, thus eat more often. I'll try.

Her diarrhea has also cleared up. She now has normal stools and that's terribly important.

She purrs as she drinks her formula.

She has a white tummy, white chin, white paws. The rest of her is gray-striped, except for the patch in the middle of her forehead, which is champagne colored. Pink eye rims, dark spot on nose.

UPDATE (Wednesday): Kitty is now taking big meals every 3 hours, drinking eagerly. Her problem appears to have been a blocked intestine, which has since corrected itself. Now she drinks eagerly.

At least, I'm hoping that's all the problem and that nothing else will show up later.

I am happy about this. I am sitting with a very plush, substantial purring cat on the sofa beside me - I hope in a year kitty is just the same. But cuddlier. Miss Tilney isn't the cuddling sort, alas.

Thanks to both of you.

Margi, what a cute name for your cat, Miss Tilney!

Well, I am not going to be around this cat a year from now or even six weeks from now. She's going back to her littermates (in another foster home) as soon as she has stabilized and gained some weight, and then she will be put up for adoption by one of our local animal rescue organizations.

But meanwhile, we are indeed enjoying one another!
