Happiness is...

...seeing my Sunny cat eating again! Yes, we're slowly getting back on track. No more vomiting or "cha-cha". The Vet called today, and the blood test show she's got Inflammatory Bowel Disease and pancreatitis. Both VERY treatable. Basically, she'll be on a low fat diet, steroids, Vitamin B shots and something else that I don't remember. We'll have the blood test rerun in 30 days to check all her levels, but I think we're finely on the road to recovery. I gotta say it warmed my heart when my poor little girl finally started acting hungry and eating with gusto again.

In further explanation, normally I would not allow my cats anywhere near the kitchen counters. However, I currently have a doggy (Evey) on the sofa with a tummy ache from hoarking down too much cat food in the last couple of days. So Sunny gets to eat center of the island. Yes, I disinfect after every meal.

And finally, Sunny's special treatment has caused all kinds of sibling rivalry around here.
"Dude, seriously....? How come she gets all the good stuff?"

I am SO glad to know you disinfect after EACH meal! I sleep with a cat butt in my face most nights, so I really worry about these things.
You go Sunny!!!!!!
