I will give you a quick rundown of my life with Aunt Cheri and Uncle Don and then turn this over to the beans to give you a Georgie update. It has been five weeks since I moved here and I am settling in just fine. I LOVE my Uncle Don!
I follow hm everywhere - to the kitchen, bathroom, office. I even beg for food from him (with the other cats supervising of course). I sit on his lap any chance I get - when he is on the phone, at the computer or watching TV. If he ignores me (how dare he?) then I tap him gently with my paw. If that doesn't work then I give him a love nip on his arm,. That usually gets his attention!
I do miss my humans from before but things are not so bad here. When we had company the other day, I met a nice guy who has hair the same color as mine! We hit it off real fine! Us gingers need to stick together!
As of Sunday Georgie who was diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease and is in ICU at the vet's, has eaten a bit of tuna on her own - a great sign that the feeding tube might not have to be in long and that she is feeling better. This photo is from Sat. and she is still a bit loopy from the anesthesia and not feeling well. She looked so much better a day later and hopefully even better on Monday.
Monday we will meet with the internal medicine specialist to determine when she may be able to come home and how we will be monitoring her. Georgie seems to know we are there and purrs up a storm, with little chirps every now and then. There is another Georgie cat in the next cage who got bit by a snake so there is confusion when the vet techs call out "Georgie's parents?" Two sets of parents answer "Here"! So now we are Snakebite Georgie and just plain Georgie.
To tempt Georgie to eat, she has a buffet of food in her cage at all times. She is also fed through her feeding tube every couple of hours, plus insulin and other things running through and IV all the time. I will continue to update on her and sincerely thank you all for your support, sharing of our donation page (see in the sidebar or under the blog header), comments and donations. We are finding that treating this disease is very costly - we will be upwards close to $3000. by the time she is home. Money well spent on our sweet Georgie.
I'm so glad that Georgie is improving! Paws crossed that she continues to eat on her own, so that the tube can be removed sooner than later!
We like helping Mom with her breakfast too :)
Good news about Georgie.
We purr he comes home soon!
Purrs Georgia and Julie,
Treasure and JJ
Glad to hear Mr. Kitty is still doing well and that Georgie is improving! Purrs and prayers <3
Paws crossed for Georgie. It sounds like she is getting the best of care.
We hadn't heard about Georgie being so sick until we read your blog today. We hope she will start to eat more even if she just grazes and wanders off and comes back to it again for a few more bites.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Continued purrs and purrayers to Georgie; we hope she'll be able to go home soon.

So glad to hear sweet Georgie is improving. Good vet care is expensive even for not-so-serious problems!
What are the odds of having two Georgie's in the vet hospital at the same time?
Purrrssss to Georgie!
We are so glad to hear about the continued progress Georgie is making. We are so very hopeful and we are still purrin for a full recovery.
We're glad Georgie gets better ! We're happy that Mr Kitty loves Uncle Don. Purrs
I am glad to hear there is more improvement with Georgie and hope it continues.
It is good to hear Mr Kitty has settled in so well.
Thanks for the updates on both kitties.
Mr. Kitty, we're glad things are working out well in your new home and you love your Uncle Don. We're purring like crazy for Georgie and hope she is better soon and come home.
Georgie, we're stopping in to add our get well wishes and head butts for a speedy recovery.

Continued purrs and prayers for Georgie! What a coincidence that TWO kitties side by side have the same name. The name "Georgie" isn't even that common for that to happen. Wow!
Hope she is home by the time you read this!
Oh, we are so very glad to hear she is eating a little on her own. From our understanding that is a very very good sign. Healing purrs for Sweet Georgie.
I am very glad Mr. Kitty has adjusted so well. And I am praying for Georgie to continue to recover.
Mr. Kitty! We are so glad you're enjoying living with Aunt Cheri and Uncle Don. That makes us really happy!
Yay for Georgie doing even a bit better. We'll keep on purring and praying for her, and you.
