It was Rory’s check up on Wednesday, and even though the abcess in her mouth is much improved, it is still swollen so she has another 10 days of antibiotics.
Dental surgery is still on the cards but the vet will review it in April when we go for a weigh in.
Unfortunately, despite cutting out treats and feeding “light” cat food, Rory has actually gained weight *heavy sigh*.
I discussed our plan to introduce a raw diet and the vet was quick to caution us on the pre-made “raw” diet foods you can buy as they have had animals present with all kinds of problems on those diets.
Thankfully I dont count pre-made as “raw” – how can it be?
We have whole heart, chicken livers and raw chicken wings ready to start introducing now we know her gum is definitely better, but as it could be a long process we are having to use the prescription diet food instead of the ‘light’ stuff. Thankfully I can get it online which works out cheaper. But its still a big chunk of cash in one go.
Rory is much better in herself and it makes me wonder how long she was feeling poorly 😥 😥 😥 I feel really bad about not noticing sooner 😦
She’s playing a lot more, having great fun chasing the laser dot (its her favourite) which is also great exercise for her. And while she’s gradually accepting that she cant have treats anymore, both her and Zoe come and stare at me each morning for their daily condition ‘pill’.
I’ve not been myself this week. I had a couple of sleepy and painful days after my activity last weekend but I’ve felt generally out of sorts as though I’m fighting off a bug. I’m either too hot or feeling chilled. I’ve also been feeling anti-social and today I have had the added joy of painfull eyeballs
But it’s not all gloomy. It’s my Littlun’s birthday tomorrow. She’s 24 😀 😀 😀
There will be gifts and love and cake!! 😀 😀 😀
