I secured a job. I start this monday. It is still going to be a real tight week.
Thanks to contributions from readers like you:
Pen has low protien food.
He gets his home IV hydration which is pretty barbaric. It is basicly pouring Lactate Ringers (you old folk may remember that was the all purpose solution to everything on the show EMERGENCY!) under his skin. His body then absorbs the fluid and it in turn flushes out his kidneys. He gets a lump under his skin like he is a furry water bottle. Today he ate by himself but something new is going on. He doesnt want to lift his head. It may just be that he is in pain as the back of his neck is where the IV gets inserted.
Poor lil cat. He's not out of the woods but he is not starving and is willingly eating.
Thank you kind people. Pen is a good cat and his illlness happened at the wrong time.
I am in your debt and eternally grateful.
