red panda eating bamboo

kitty update

Selkie ate a can of food overnight (at the hospital). Bloodwork is the same as it was a year ago, except she has a low hematocrit (red blood cell percentage) and isn't producing new red blood cells. They don't know why; some unrelated disease is one possibility, cancer is another, or it could simply be a sign of aging. They want to keep her and give her an ultrasound to check for lymphoma. I miss her.

Kitty update 2

The ultrasound was scheduled for Monday, so she is home for the weekend. She is better hydrated, eating some, still acting quite weak and creaky and slow, and enjoying attention from us but still preferring to stay upstairs rather than downstairs where we spend most of our time. (I think upstairs is warmer, but the OH says not at night.) We have instructions to encourage her to eat and drink. thanks for all your vibes, expressed or not

Hey papersky, my copies of your books arrived. The OH promptly took away the first two, saying "I'll finish them before you will," so I'm unlikely to post a report any time soon.
