Progress?

From Diego’s adopter:

… just came from the vet! All his adult teeth are in and baby teeth are gone – he does have early gum disease that will need to be monitored- vet says he is 9 months old and seems a bit older than Maxie. Vet wants me to get going on teaching them about brushing – said it will take a month to get there! Slow and sure – vet clipped [their nails] – Diego a gentleman – Maxie was a handfull!

Jellybean finally ate. Not a lot (I’m sure his poor stomach has shrunk!) but it’s something. He went to the vet on Monday and stayed for observation. They gave him fluids and some anti-nausea medication. He still wouldn’t eat when we got home and was clearly (to me) still nauseated. Finally, on Tuesday morning, he ate some tuna — after turning down his favourite Weruva food and cooked hamburger. I took him to work and he continued to eat small portions of tuna. I can’t get over how much he loves it at work. He even seems to be getting used to the ride to and from; at least he doesn’t cry the entire trip. I harness him and anchor him to various door handles. That way he gets lots of stimulation but he doesn’t sneak up on the cat-nervous people. And I get to keep my office door open. He had a nice visit with Brendan:

Unfortunately, back at home, he wouldn’t eat again. My diagnosis is congestion, so I’ve started steaming him. We’ll see.

Rousette is gaining confidence every day. She comes running to snuggle when I pat the couch and she spends most of the night on the bed (despite my squishing her a couple of times!)
