Rosie’s blood test results (Day 33)

This morning, after feeding Rosie her two meals, I drove to the clinic (by myself, without Rosie) to get yesterday’s blood test results. I had to wait almost two hours because the results were not in yet.

When I finally got the piece of paper, I was already prepared for the worst, but I still […]

Rosie (Day 32)

We have not done subcut for two days now because the senior vet was worried that it could be ascites (accumulation of fluids). This morning, the senior vet said he would like to palpate Rosie’s abdomen.

Rosie ate a little bit of kibble this morning, and I gave her her wetfood meal and her meds […]

Rosie (Day 31)

Rosie ate a little bit of kibble for breakfast.

She gets five wetfood meals a day and she is more willing to eat now. In fact, she seems to like home-cooked now.

There was no subcut today as her tummy still looks very big.

Rosie eats (Day 30)

Rosie ate a little bit of kibble a total of 3 times today – breakfast, after-breakfast and lunch.

By now, we are used to the pattern – it’s all up and down. One day, she will eat and the next, she will not.

Rosie (Day 29)

Rosie ate a wee little bit on her own this morning. Just a little bit.

She is often intimidated by a crowd, feline or human.

But Heidi, Tabs and Tiger live in the “rest of the house” now, so the moment they hear the sound of kibble, they […]

Rosie (Day 28)

Today was a rather uneventful day.

Rosie wasn’t interested in eating again. The vet had already told me that it’s going to be up-and-down for an animal afflicted with liver disease.

We took Rosie out on the harness for some morning air. She didn’t want to walk, just sat with us to listen to the […]

Rosie’s 2nd acupuncture session (Day 27)

Rosie enjoyed her time at the patio today; she slept from 9am until almost 1pm!

Then, Connie came over to take us to the vet for Rosie’s 2nd acupuncture session.

The vet said Rosie’s pulse is still weak but we have to give it at least 2 weeks as […]

Rosie’s morning (Day 27)

Last night, I slept like a log.

This morning, I woke up at around 6.45am and guess what, Rosie was sitting next to the bed and the moment I woke up, she mewed loudly.

By now, I more or less know what each “mew” means.

Rosie wants food. And kibble has already been her favourite […]

Rosie eats on her own (Day 26)

After so many days of not being able to eat on her own, today, finally, Rosie eats on her own again!

It was after her subcut and she was having a nap in the litter box-bed (it made me think of a nap after a massage!) when Daffodil asked for food. So I poured out […]
