we have settled down in our sub Q fluid therapy – that time of day where I get to stick it to the cat, that is the needle attached to the fluid line attached to the fluids bag for the gravity feed…..he even lay down and relaxed for the session last night.
Afterwards, I let him out and followed along as he went out to bite at some tall grass, which helped him throw up some foamy phlegm (clear not brownish). My hope was that a little grass chewing might help his stomach if upset and clear the way for more eating. We spent a half an hour strolling around on the front lawn. I tossed him a twig and he tracked it with his eyes and went over and gave it a bash with his paw. A lot of the time he just sat on his haunches looking around and taking in the smells coming to him on the breeze. For many years he has been a mini lion with about a 85 yard range. A lot of his outdoor time was curled up in the sun sleeping.
I was happy to see him out getting a little extra stimulation. I just wish his appetite would resurface more strongly. I may go rent an antelope costume and bound around in the living room trying to get his lion king self to bite.
tremendous tangent – I watched Madagascar for the laughs and there were lots. My favourite scene was a toss up between the little old lady whacking the lion with her purse and the moment where the lion wakes up from the first darting and asks for some help and everyone screams and a shower of tranquilizer darts land all around him and he turns his paw around and sees a dart has stuck in his paw….lights go out and then his drug induced hallucogenic psychedelic dream sequence flashes for a few moments. Hi-larious.
