Nushi update: I posted the update for her vet visit yesterday. Bottom line is she couldn’t see anything wrong with her ears so likely this is just part of the healing process. Sure enough the day I made the appt (Wed) was the worst of it, it was better yesterday and continues to be better today. I haven’t seen any major spasms, and only a little head scratching. Still glad I checked.
For today, she continues to have a great appetite, especially in the morning. This morning she was holding her right eye closed, which is the eye that had the cloud in it when I first got her. I put an anti-biotic drop in it around noon, and she opened it up a little after that. Open a bit more this evening. Her voice is also a bit scratchy today, but that could be because she meowed the entire way to the vet the day before. Quiet on the way home though. That’s a pattern I’m sure many of you have seen with your own fur babies!
Nushi played with 2 different toys today and even ran after her spring and swatted it around!!! The improvement in her movement is most obvious when she tries something like going up stairs. I think it was Tuesday that she wanted to check out the front yard and then went up the stairs to go back in. It was a one stair at a time, wobble, reset, go. Today it was a smoot motion! Was able to use food for the shot again today. I added a 5 minute warm-up of talking about food and how I know she doesn’t like the shot but that it was what was making her feel better. Let her smell the food during the last part of the talk and then my helper of the day talks to her while I put the food down, and keeps talking to her while she eats and I give her the shot. Fingers crossed it keeps working.
That’s all for now. Go Team Nushi and Go Mega-Orb!!!! Shirin
