::breathing a huge sigh of relief::

Leila is on the mend!

She's a long way from alright, but she's definitely getting better. Look, she's sitting up and feeding without needing any help from me or the much-hated pipette!




She's still very wobbly, and as you can see from the picture, has a tendency to lean over to the left, but her eyes can focus again, she's very close to being her normal chatty self, and she does seem to be getting stronger with every day that passes. I'm sure it won't be long before she'll regain control of her bowel and bladder, and her equilibrium should start to gradually improve over the next week or so.

The vet was very pleased with her progress this morning, as was I. She was given a vitamin shot and was put on a drip again to take care of any possible dehydration issues, but we weren't asked to make another appointment. This must mean that in the vet's considered opinion, Leila's well on the way to recovery; a view I began to believe in as well when she insisted on climbing into my lap immediately after her breakfast:

I don't have a dancing cat icon - so Snoopy must suffice.

Thank you. She's my baby and for a day or two, I was really afraid for her, so you can imagine my relief.

Yay, indeed...although she does seem to have developed a strange attachment to her cardboard box.

But it's smelly! Still, I'm letting her keep it for now. The paper and cardboard recycling men will be here on Tuesday.
