Well, this is a bit of a long story, but ever since Sophie turned 8-9 years old, she's been havng some digestive issues. She kept vomiting up her wet food, and eventually we had to stop giving it to her. She's been losing weight pretty steadily over the last year or so, and on her last vet appointment (Aug 18th), she weighed 4.8 pounds. However, we started her on some new meds to help soothe her digestive tract and she's back on an appetite stimulant. Yesterday I was eating some pastine with parm cheese and I couldn't get her off me! She was crawling all over me, like she used to, and when I gave her a tiny shred of cheese she scarfed it down. She's been purring up a storm lately, even for my dad. I was so worried that she might not make it through the month. It's so great to see her acting fiesty again, like she used to. I don't think she'll gain a lot of weight before she goes back to the vet on Monday, but if this keeps up, she'll be back up to her healthy weight before the year is over, I hope.
