Hi there. She is progressing nicely, and the fur is beginning to grow back on the abscess site. She still seems a bit thin, though she is eating well, and I am supplementing her diet with egg and milk, which she loves. But I have to confess that every time she hiccups, burps or makes the slightest sneeze, my heart leaps and I think there is something wrong. Her breathing is still a bit fast, though the vet thinks it is OK. I just can't believe that she was so close to death (about 3 minutes away if that surgeon hadn't come in) and now I have her with me, playing and loving as normal. She is picking fights with the others and hunting her mouse, and doing all the usual kitten things - it is great to watch. And when she cuddles up to me every night I feel so grateful. I have a problem with my digital camera which seems to have packed it in - as soon as I solve it or buy another I shall post some new pix.
