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.
