I thought I'd post a quick update about my cat, Layla, who, as you know, has been battling some health issues for the past year.
Over all, she's doing quite well. She is on 90 mg of Denosyl (a liver protectant supplement) every morning, and .35 cc of Prednisone every evening (a very small dose for keeping any inflammation she may have in her intestines to a minimum).
Lately, she has been turning up her food and even seemed to drop a bit of weight again. I thought the worst, but when I offered her a can of food from PetCo as opposed to a smaller pet store in my area this evening, she wolfed it down. Despite the fact that it's the exact same brand of food, there appears to be something different about the pet store cans. I'll listen to what she's telling me and buy only PetCo cans from now on. Maybe the ones from the pet store weren't stored properly (according to the expiration date, they have another two years before they expire...).
She's going to eventually need to go back to the vet for a recheck, but weighing her is the most important thing. So, I'm probably going to bring her along when I pick up her dry prescription food (which she just kind of picks at nowadays) just to be weighed. I'm not in a hurry to get her in for another exam, as she is stable and was really stressed out at the last couple of vet visits.
She spent some time in my room with me this weekend and pretty much purred continuously the entire time, despite me dressing her up in flowers. I love little moments like this. :)
