    It sounds like she is doing well, especially for a cat her age. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you. She has hyperthyroidism and early stage renal failure, both of which we are trying to medicate (the former a little more successfully than the latter).
    We tried giving her subQ fluids at home, but it stressed her too much.

    We're letting her guide what help she will take, and she'll let us know when she's had enough.
    For now, she eats, excretes, is able to get up on her favorite chair, keeps the 2 three year old boy cats in line, is social, grooms...
    Take care - Steven

    She is an amazing kitty cat. Go, Miss T!

    I guess she is feeling a bit sprightly, my wife snapped a shot of her back upstairs this morning.

    What an adorable kitty cat she is! Go, Miss T! She has some Calico in her.

    I miss my kitties. I will, probably never have another one.

    Doc Bennett (who retired from Park Veterinary at the beginning of June) called her a tabby with a big white spot.
    The markings are know as cap and saddle. If she had no white, Teia would be a very dark tabby.

    Missy T is a bit under the weather today, had not eaten and only sipped a little water. Hid under the couch for a few hours, which she does not do normally.

    Maybe, today's dreary weather got Miss T down. I am a member of her fan club. Go, Miss T!

    She spent the night laying on a towel in the shower stall.
    Was awake and alert this morning, did drink some water.

    She's still up there, Mr Buff (the blond ginger) is keeping any eye on her.

    I got a roasted chicken at Shopper's after having breakfast with friends at Coffee Quarter.
    Minced some white meat up for her, which she did nibble.

    A few minutes ago, opened a can of kitty fish.
    She was tucking in to that as I closed the door to the bath so the boy cats would not try to horn in.
    Take care - Steven
