She almost looks like her old self at this point. For the first time in a week, she's come out to join us in the living room, jumped up on the coffee table (this is her usual "domain") and jumped up to be with roomie on the couch watching TV. It was very re-assuring.
We're still having to feed her with the syringe, but she's taking more food more often. We're still waiting for a bm. It doesn't look like she's ready to try to eat on her own -- we offered her some sardines packed in oil (the smelliest stuff we could find) and she turned her nose up at it.
It has definitely been nice having her around while we watch TV. That hasn't been happening for more than a week. And when she does bless us with an appearance, all of the pampering and pushing the other kitties away from the food and water bowls and giving her a clear path to the litterbox would make someone think the Queen was coming...
And I guess she is, at that.
