Sassy update

I have an update on my little Sassy. Her appetite has picked up tremendously, simply amazing! She wanders into the kitchen to see what I'm fixing for her. The antibiotics seem to have made her feel so much better. She is still a little wobbly, I think that is due to neurological damage from the little seizures. At this very moment she is gobbling up Solid Gold Wee Bit dry food, made with fresh bison and other good stuff for her. She usually has hamburger a little on the rare side or fully cooked chicken cut up in tiny bites, no rare chicken for me or my animals. I tried baby food and she wanted no part of that stuff. She did like the canned cat food liver and chicken. Her ribs don't seem to be showing anymore. Her little tail wags all the time. I need to weigh her on a digital scale to see how many ounces she has gained. Due to my wonderful, loving 24 hour care I think she is on the mend and will be with me for a little while longer. Many thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers!!

Florida is really starting to warm up very quickly. The mornings are still cool but after luch it gets a little sticky. I am really going to miss the cooler weather.

Meagan, my daughter, works at the Covenant Presbyterian Child Development Center. One of the little boys, Kade, brought her a gorgeous bouquet of store bought spring flowers today with a note attached with a hand drawn heart and he signed his name in 4 year old writing. All those kids really love her! That made her day!

Haven't been able to see much of Libby, saw her last Thursday, maybe next week will be better. I'm having car trouble again so I'm pretty much limited to where I can go.

TATA for now!

I'm SO relieved Sassy is doing better!! I had been looking for news about her a lot in the pas few days. If you see Libby again, give her a hug from me, will you?

I am so glad to hear that Sassy is doing better. That is a relief. I bet that is a lot of worry off your head for right now. That was so sweet of the little boy to give your daughter flowers.

So happy to hear that Sassy is doing better. I think summer is here for us too. We've been between 87* and
90* for over a week now.

So glad to hear that Sassy is on the mend. You are such good pet mom! :) Elora has to go to the vet for annual checkup next Sat..it's always an adventure. They have it noted in her chart that she is "sensitive" aka....will rip your limbs off if given a chance to escape! lol!!

Mom told us about Sassy, and we're so glad that she's doing better.

Hey - we didn't get to see our mom either, cause she left us at home. I know that she wanted to see you, but without a car...well you know how it was.

We're already hearing her talk about going to Florida again next month. I guess we'll have to hide her luggage!

Oh, this is such good news!
I've been praying for sweet Sassy... and I'm glad to hear that she's doing better!

But Bison meat? REAL bison?
I have to admit that some of the special cat food I buy for my old Jazzy smells and looks delicious - and she just loves it. When she gets the regular Whiskas, she almost turns her nose up!
Why eat plain ol' Tuna when you can have Salmon mousse? ;-)

Oh, that is such fantastic news! You are right, your loving care did the trick.
