Sorry I dont have a picture for this entry, but I am in the middle of midterms now through Tuesday. Anyway, I just wanted to give everyone a quick update. Moki is now back to eating regularly on his own. He still wont eat much wet food, but he is chowing down a couple of times a day on dry food. As for his drinking, the sub-q-fluids has had a positive effect on it. I guess Moki doesn't like being poked with needles, because he has started to drink more ever since we started the sub-q-fluids. Moki still is not drinking quite as much as he needs to, but he is drinking enough now that we dont need to do sub-q-fluids everyday. At the moment, we are getting by on doing sub-q-fluids every other day.
One of Moki's good friends (you'll have to keep checking in, to find out who,) actually offered to send Moki a Platinum Drinkwell Fountain that they can no longer use. (We will reveal their name when the fountain arrives...until then we want it to be a surprise!) Anyway, it's our hope that the Platinum Drinkwell Fountain will get Moki drinking enough on his own that we can take him off the sub-q-fluids altogether. We'll have to wait and see. In any event, Moki's urine continues to appear normal, with no blood in it!
As for Moki's congestion and runny/stuffy nose, he is continuing to do well on the Tamiflu. While still not completely gone there has been a HUGE improvement! We can tell that Moki is feeling much, much better. All I have to do is just walk in the room and the minute Moki sees me he starts purring just as loud as he can. If I stay in the room for more than a minute, he insists on walking up to me, being picked up and snuggled. It's funny I have nursed many a cats back to health, but I have never encountered one as grateful as Moki. It's as if, he seems to know that his life keeps hanging on the line, and thanks to all your help, we keep pulling him back from the edge...It's hard to put into words, but I have honestly never seen another animal, so thankful to be alive.
