Precious Flower Update

Precious' blood work came back fine, except for low white blood count, indicative of a virus. She is being treated for a viral infection (intestinal.) This encompasses giving fluids and an anti nausea vaccine (this was done when I took her to the vet tonight.) She told me to withhold water and food for 12 hours, then give her water, followed by boiled human chicken. We need to get her gut working again, hopefully that is all it will take and she will be 100%. She is looking at me with the saddest eyes, begging for something to eat. She is playing and very happy now, hope it continues. Thank you all for the wonderful comments, what a great bunch of people the catblogosphere has!!! I love you all!

Starving a poor kittie for 12 hours sounds like a weird way to fix problems with the gut, but we guess (hope?) this V*T knows what (s)he's doing.

Purrrrrsss

We so hope this treatment works for sweet Precious. Perhaps the 12hour fast is to give her little tummy a rest and recover some.
