Little Kitty

Little Kitty update:
She's been home from the kitty hospital for a few days now. We have THREE different medications to administer. She's in chronic kidney failure. She's incontinent, weak and has horrible arthritis. What's so bad is the sub-q fluids. We have to hang an IV bag and give her fluids just under her skin with this really wicked big needle once a day. She doesn't like it; we don't like it, but she needs it. She's gained some weight, her coat looks better and she's more alert, but she is now officially as "special needs" geriatric kitty. It's palliative, not curative care. I feel as if I am running a kitty cat hospice.
