Kismet --> Home!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I'm still slightly holding my breath but Kismet is at home and doing wonderfully. I went to see her and she had been eating a little bit on her own, but Dr. Bob wanted me to bring her home and try her even for just 24 hours (she couldn't really get worse in 24 hours since she had seemed to stabalize)...so I did. Sure enough the first thing she did when she got home was throw upa nd hide, so I was really worried. But my mom was with me
and said just to leave her for a bit..so I did. A couple hours later I got her from out under the bed and my mom spent an hour doing reiki on her, and I put some rescue remedy on her nose and she fell right asleep. When she woke up I tried hand feeding her and sure enough she ate more then I'd seen her eat in weeks (purina luv...I know ). So then I watched a movie and just sat with her the whole time and she fell asleep on my lap for
about 2 hours, woke up and ate another meal of purina luv (I am ecstatic at this point).
Overnight she ate another little bit of food, and this morning I was able to hand feed her again!! She is much less jaundiced, drinking on her own, and has urinated and had a bowel movement, which means her digestive tract is working again which it wasn't before.

I really couldn't be happier right now, she hasn't hid since, she doesn't move around too too much, as she is still REALLY weak, but she is alert and wants to know whats going on.
The other cat (Cello) was funny, and actually hissed at her when she got home, guess she smelled like vet, but in true female style she just ignored him, what a girl. (!!!!!QUESTION!!!!!!: what can I rub on thier noses so they smell the same again....is it corn starch or something???)

So as of right now I'm not force feeding her at all, I have about 12 different moist kibble to try, since that is her favourite right now, but being a cat I'm sure she'll change her mind. The vet thinks since she is eating, we have to try to leave it up to her now, since the assist feedings are very stressful, and we've gotten her over the organ failure hump.....it's up to kis now. I know lots of force feeding people are going to b e screaming up to the high heavens that she isn't getting enough food/nutrients, but at this point I have to start listening to one person, the man who saved her life, and who will take her back at any point she gets worse.......she has come this far with his treatment so I'm going to keep it up.

I think she's going to pull through....I really do........
