Colds, Computers and Cats with BONUS UPDATE

So last week we were on vacation. Time to relax, to kick back, to take care of some chores...

or, in the case of our house, deal with everyone having a cold, a computer with a dead power supply unit and to take a cat to the vet to find out whta was going on with her.

The cold/sore throat is fading.

The computer is with these fine people (because I had a spare $200 $300 ish to just throw around).

But the cat, the cat is breaking our heart. Mitts stopped eatting dry food about two weeks ago, so we got some wet foot too see if she had a problem with her mouth or something. She ate that for a bit, but then became less interested in it. So we went into the vet to have her checked out, they took blood and did tests on it. It came back showing that two enzymes in her liver were elevated. So we took her in for an X-ray to see if there was anything obvious. Her liver has basically shrunk, so we've got her on anti-biotics on the theory that mb it's an infection. They are doing nothing except causing her trauma: (freaked cat + droper full of anti-biotics = cat wrapped in towel to control her) + stressed human adults = super freaked out cat.

Unless some kind of miracle happens very very soon we're going to have to take her to the vet for her last trip. MITTS IS GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN SEEMING BETTER (water consumption and a bit of weight gain) TO LOOKING SICKER THAN EVER.

I feel like puking.

Awww, that is awful.

Well, I hope you and your family get well soon. I hope your cat's health gets better and hope your computer will probably get ok too.

I'm terribly sorry to hear that Mitts is not doing well. Liver failure seems to be the feline equivalent to cardiac disease in humans in that it's common and takes a lot of kitties before their time.

I hope Mitts responds to the treatment.
