    DefaultKiwi says.... (NLR)

    Thank you JL!!!

    Dan picked her up from the hospital saturday while I was at work. She was still pretty doped up and confused. :-\ But, she had a good sleep, and ate with a little encouragement.

    Now, she's eating on her own! Her appetite isn't back to 100% yet, but we're getting there. She's bright and alert and pretty much back to her old self again.

    So, THANK YOU for the warm wishes and good thoughts/prayers.

    Here are a few pics of her this morning:

    Looking alert:




    I was worried for a little while there that I would never get the pleasure of watching her play again....




    "Ewwie... I smell like hospital... must get clean!"




    Thank you all again. :-* :-* :-*

    *sigh*.... no. :-\

    Her stomach was very dilated and full of fluid on thursday, but went down significantly friday. so... ???

    I'm going to take her back to my vet for a recheck tomorrow, and get a blood test done to check for pancreatitis. If it wasn't that, then it was most definitely either salmonella or clostridium poisoning, most likely as a result of me switching her to a raw diet. :-[

    Needless to say, no more raw feeding in this house. olice:

    Glad she's feeling better, it is so scary when they are sick.

    Once they are okay though, it makes you appreciate all the little things again.

    I hope you find out what it was.

    So glad to hear that she is doing better - she's a cutie (even if she's not a lab).
    Hope the progress keeps up!! Thanks for the update.

    So glad to hear a happy update on Kiwi Kitty. She should become an Honorary JL Mascott! I agree, she is a beautiful baby!

    She looks good. And I love those markings - I have never seen markings on a cat like that before. Very unique!

    I didn't realise you were feeding her raw. Did the vet say that the raw was probably how she (assuming she did...?) contracted salmonella?

    Yuppers. :-[

    However, she was also on a medication that (as a side effect) suppressed her immune system. So it wasn't so much the raw diet as it was a bad combo of the two. If that's what she got, anyways. :-\
