150th Post Giveaway!

Thank you to those of you who were so kind to inquire about Graybee and cared enough to email me with suggestions and advice on how to help him with his feline hepatic lipidosis.  You are all wonderful caring people.

This picture of Graybee was taken yesterday!  After nearly two weeks of vet visits, forced feedings every two hours, IV rehydration, antibiotics,  giving him every kind of cat food, meat, Ensure, cat vitamins, Pedialite and anything we could get him to eat or drink, he is doing great!  His jaundice is almost gone.  He is eating on his own and drinking water on his own.  He has his energy back and is well enough to frolic in the catnip patch this afternoon!  He is his old self again, hunting and grooming himself and walking with us around the yard when we walk Jess (our dog).

We are still cautious and watching his food and water intake, in case he shows signs of dehydration again...a rather difficult thing to do with a roaming outdoor cat!!  Again, thank you so much for caring.

This is my 150th post, and I felt that a giveaway would be fun, so I'm going to offer a copy of Pat Cross' book, "Simply Primitive", as well as some wool.  If you would like to participate in the giveaway, please leave a comment with this post, and I will randomly draw a name from those who comment.  I will draw the winner's name around 6:00 pm this Saturday night and post the winner that evening.  Good luck, everyone!
