04:03 pm: More Busy
I called the dental vet today to tell him that Spirit still wasn't eating and could we come in to get more fluids. He was volunteering at the zoo (I forgot to ask on which animal) and called back and said he'd meet me at the office about noon and give her the sub-cue fluids. We did that, and I was explaining how badly she wants the snackies, but wouldn't even eat the pulverized paste I'd made, and he said to see if she'd eat it without the water. When we got home, I did, and she did lick up most of it, so I'll be pulverizing more. He also said that as long as I'm home and awake, she can have the collar off and she's very happy about that -- sitting on the kitchen window sill (the heating pad cover is in the laundry, so no heating pad on the table) in the sun.

Then I headed off to the grocery store where I bought bags of candy on sale. Since I have to limit my protein so much now, I still need something with fat and carbohydrates and that means sucking on a lot of hard candy.

Now I'm washing the cat blankies and online, and tonight I'm taking Steve, who helped me so much when I was in the hospital, and his wife Carol out to dinner. Carol has an unusual work schedule, so it's taken a while to get together. We picked a Thai restaurant that has wonderful reviews on the page, plus one of the families in our bookgroup rave about it, so I'm looking forward to dinner.

I'm sorry I've gotten behind in checking on friends' journals. I didn't realize that Spirit continued to have problems; dental and other mouth trouble for cats really is trouble. I very much hope she gets better. And I hope you enjoy dinner with your friends Steve and Carol. Bob and I are having one of the first old-fashioned casseroles I've made for awhile; I'd done a chicken, tomato and rice dish in the crock pot a few days ago and, although it was reasonable, we weren't in a hurry to finish it. So I eliminated most of what was left of the cooked tomato (terribly wasteful, but we weren't, apparently, going to eat it anyhow), cooked more chicken, cut up all of the meat and made a curry sauce; mixed everything up with the remaining cooked rice, popped it in the oven and the result was much more edifying than the previous incarnation.

Oh, you have good reason to skip posts!

I pulverized more snackies for her today, but haven't been able to get close enough to her so Shiva won't eat them. I go to Kaiser for labs tomorrow and I think I'll check the PetSmart in the same shopping center for soft snackies with similar flavors.

It was a great restaurant and we really enjoyed the food! I brought about half of mine home. The thing nobody told me is that it had two steps to get in, so I'll never be going alone!

I hope you all had a very nice dinner.
Good to hear that Spirit is eating - in a way.

She's still very picky. The food was really good, and worked out well for Carol who is an ovo-lacto vegetarian.
