It's been about three weeks since the cat pulled a doozy on us, eating string and having a liver infection. She is healing slowly but surely. On her first check up she has lost a little of weight on her scrawny self, but her appetite is good, her litter habits are good, and we are continuing on with the antibiotics. The vet wasn't particularly worried since she had been through a lot with surgery and all.
She's been keeping a very low profile, sleeping on the floor of my bedroom during the day, and right next to me at night. There's been a lot of petting and purring going on.
Her sexy old lady cat belly scar will eventually be covered in fur and all of this will be a distant, yet terrible memory.
