One of these days this blog will return to a quilting blog with the occasional kitty news. That will be a relief because it will mean that Pokey's health will have returned to normal. Still not there yet.
After rambling around for an hour after she got home yesterday, Pokey settled on my lap and spent a lot of time there. And she slept with me for the whole night - that's a first. I was so afraid she'd be mad at me, but that hasn't been the case.
She's still a bit shaky and can't jump up high. But she's drinking water (only freshly poured cold water in a human glass, but at least she's drinking) and I finally figured out a way to get her to eat. She was having none of the special canned food, so she's now got special kidney problem dry food. And my other three cats Habibi, Howler and Lily do too, because when I tried to separate Pokey out at meal times it just made them all nervous and jumpy - no one was eating. I checked with the vet and he says it's okay, so whew, it's good to have her eating again.
Look at what arrived in the mail - the new Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran collaborative book. Woohoo. It's been a welcome distraction from worrying about Pokey but I haven't looked at it thoroughly enough to do it justice. But I have noticed this one is more Liberated than the last one, which is another huge Woohoo! I'll let you know more about it after I've read it.
