Thank you all so much for keeping our precious girl in your thoughts. I am trying to resist the temptation to follow her everywhere she goes. A little while ago, she tired of lying by the fire and wanted to lie on the dining room floor instead. I was hovering over her for ages and then gave myself a stern talking to, the little girl probably just wants a change of scenery! So, I restrict myself to checking on her now and again instead.
It's probably that daughter is upstairs as well and Tippy can hear her from the dining room (that's where the stairs are).
She is not eating much today, but still drinking and using the litter tray. She always went out for a little walk in the garden today. She is a bit weak and wobbly though and doesn't get very far.

Y'know, I can't help thinking that a kitty who is so ill would only stay with you this way for one reason: she knows that she is loved. I hope that gives you great comfort.
That is so lovely - it really is a comfort, thank you so much

Tricia - I think you're right. My Daughter has been the centre of her world ever since we brought her home from the shelter nearly twelve years ago. Because she had such a troubled start to life, the RSPCA weren't going to send her to a home with children. But, when she was brought out of her little cubicle, she crawled onto my daughter's chest, crept up under her long hair and snuggled next to her neck. We were approved pretty much on the strength of their interaction and they have been inseparable ever since.
I was so unsure as to whether to include her recent photos here - but in the end, I decided to put them in. She looks so sweet and is not different than the Tippy we have always known so chose to include them. It was a difficult decision.
