Tabby is Better

Regarding Tabby's severe constipation, we have been doing what the vet suggested (Laxitone every day). And, since she has not been drinking, my husband had the idea of using a syringe (no needle) to give her water orally. (yes the vet told us wet food is 75% water, but she has not been eating wet food). She has been nibbling at a bit of tuna and turkey when it is offered.

So now, at the end of her third day of home-based treatments, Tabby created a sizable pile of nitrogenous waste  :)

We are going to keep our vet appointment for tomorrow just to be sure she does not need something else. We made it in case she needed an enema or xrays for blockage.

Thank you all for your purr-ayers!!!!!

(ps - I am wondering if we might be the only area in the US that has not had any snow this winter)
