Bit better today.... but bad news about another cat

*** I won't be able to update for a few days as the mains adapter for my computer has broken. I don't have much battery power left!! I've sent off for a new one but it'll take a few days....***

Hi all,
thanks for the messages...
the good vet isn't in today! AARGH!
Back tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I haven't given Scoot any steroid today. He has been up and meowing, eating well and enjoying his new bed. He has had a nice sit in the sun and now he's back in his bed, asleep on his brains! He seems back to his norm.

I don't intend to give any more steroid till tomorrow night, and then only a half tablet. I'll call the vet tomorrow too. I'm wondering if to try a half tablet, every other day. He had such a good reaction to the half tablet on Friday, and only went downhill when the dose was increased...

Meanwhile, bad news from my dad :( 
he had to have his big black and white cat, Benny, put to sleep today, as a large blood clot left his back legs and tail paralysed. 
Poor Benny went into shock. The vet couldn't help him. Dad was in tears, it's not long since he had to say goodbye to his poodle. He has one cat left, Jimmy, who is looking for his playmate now. It's so said when they leave a playmate behind, isn't it?......

Love, tea & cake,

We are purring for Scooter and hope that the vet OKs the reduced dosage to help him feel better. We are really sad about your Dad's cat.
