No news this morning, so no idea what her condition is. It’s the round one, who is 7. Bad night all round.

So, could be a stroke. Could be a growth on the brain. Slight chance it’s an infection. Options are £££££ referral scan, or wait and see what develops, with antibiotics and sedation. Can’t really see the benefit of that as it then leaves more questions.  So we wait and see.

No, she’s intubated, and we will see how the next day is.

Well, my daughter (whose cat she effectively is) has visited and spent a little time with her. Some progress, so we shall see another day. Daughter actually works for the vets and now is going to that hospital for her shifts tomorrow, so we will get a better update, hopefully.

This is her in better times..

Better news today, she's had a poo, and is able to eat soft food, so the tube is out. Recognises Miss Jaded.

Diagnosis not really cleared up yet though...

edited to add, I've just seen a video of her, quite distressing.

In my car today I drove over a squirrel. It hesitated mid-road then darted across as my car
approached it. I couldn't brake, as I was being tailgated. The sound as my wheels crushed its
body wasn't nice.

That's such a shame De Sisti, not a pleasant experience at all.

Better news on our front, she's improved enough to come home! Still a way to go, but fingers crossed.
