at least she's more comfortable now. Purrs and prayers. Hopefully you'll

Thank you.* Last night she slept curled next to me and when I woke up
she did upside-downy-head and purred and made me smile.

I do hope we will have more time together without her being in any sort
of pain.* She is sitting on my lap right now, purring and feeling better
thanks to the pain meds.* I'm giving her hugs and scritches every chance
I get.* Unfortunately, she also thinks I'm going to pop her back into
the carrier and take her to the scary place where they poke and prod and
stick her with needles.* When I go anywhere near where it's stored she

Unfortunately, she's still not eating much. * I have a liquid appetite
stimulant to add to her food but it doesn't do a heck of a lot of good
if she won't eat.* What she doesn't understand is if she eats she'll
feel better and I *won't* pop her into that carrier and take her to the

I'm glad she does seem to be feeling a little better and sleeping with
