Love wins

“Being a mother is an attitude, not a biological relation.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, Have Space Suit — Will Travel

HERE'S the latest on Miss Shiva: She's continuing to recover! We're beside ourselves with relief and gratitude.

We still have no diagnosis, however. The results of her pancreas tests came back normal. We took her back to the vet for a checkup today and possible dental x-rays, but based on Shiva's near miraculous recovery from failing as rapidly as she was, the vet didn't think x-rays are necessary.

Her temperature is normal, she's now eating enthusiastically, bringing us her ball to throw, bugging us to go outside for a walk, and in every way, acting completely normal. The little lump on her cheek is a scab — not a tumor or an abscess from a tooth. We're guessing that the Boy clipped her with a claw, but the vet says her small wound in no way explains these three weeks from hell and her near-death experience. Dr. Flaming's best guess remains that Shiva either caught a virus or had a bout of pancreatitis.

We're keeping her on her "special" medicine and an appetite stimulant for awhile longer, though, until she puts back on all the weight she lost.

In celebration of her return to us, Hey Look is sharing this sweet video. It's the best!!
