She’s doing well today. More animated and interested in what’s going on. And she’s eating really well.

Of course, her pellets of choice are the Garden Select, which are running low. I bought Organic and that’s not her favorite. I still have young pig pellets so once a week she gets a pinch of those. I’m just glad she’s having another good day. Hopefully we’re on the right track with treatment.

I swear as soon as I place my Chewy order, her taste changes! At dinnertime she was up on one of her hammocks, looking into the kitchen for food. So happy to see that!

Yay! Pets can be so fickle. I care for a neighbor's cats when they're away and it seems they are always adjusting food according to cat and according to taste and medical changes. Eating right is a big part of being healthy!

I haven’t updated on Gidget in a while. It’s been 3 weeks since her vet visit. She’s been doing well and has a good appetite. Tonight was the first time in quite a while that she had zoomies. She’s a little clumsy, especially when she makes a sharp turn, but she was moving pretty quick and was up on her hidey a few times. So I think she’s feeling good.

She is still getting Orbax and I plan to give that until it’s gone. I reduced the Meloxicam just a little to 0.25 ml once a day and I haven’t noticed any changes. I also give her Meclizine in the morning with vitamin C mixed in a little CC. She takes everything easily and then has some lettuce afterwards.
