Up Datier...

Well, let's see.

Katie hasn't thrown up since dinnertime, Wednesday.
Julie is showing no sign on infection and her spirits are good.
My digestive tract is back to normal.

And the cat.
He was more lively yesterday morning but I took him to the vet any way. They checked him over and took blood.
The results were... normal.
Dr. C called this morning to say that the bloodwork looked really good for a 15 yr old cat.
He does have a broken tooth that is a bit infected and he should have a good cleaning and perhaps an extraction eventually, but that shouldn't be contributing to the peeing problem.
He thinks that it is a behavioral thing and the listless and clingy was sulking because we were away for the weekend.

So I've ordered another moisture resistant mattress pad and
a waterproof overlay to put on the bed when we are not in it.
I'm also going to research behavior modification for cats.
If worse comes to worse we can try kitty prozac. But medication is a last resort.

So that's the way it is here. Thanks for all the advice and encouragement.

Katie Talk...

We were playing Candy Land. Katie normally trounces me, but this particular game I was keeping up with her practically move for move. I commented on this to her and she replied "yes, we're next-to-neck."

Well, it makes as much sense as the real expression.
