Riley Is Eating

December 18th, 2016 at 01:17 pm

Riley is eating! (That is her in the picture on my sidebar) We were able to get her to eat more last evening and I even woke twice during the night to feed her. She was eating food off my finger. She doesn't have much energy, but she is still getting up and using the litter box. I also saw her grooming herself. This morning she did eat off a plate so that is also progress.

She has had two doses of her oral antibiotic. I'm such a pro at pills with this cat unfortunately. Both cats are loving the wet food too, which I knew since that was their evening snack. I just need to stock up on it at the commissary today. I think we will leave some dry food out during the transition, but I have a feeling they will both give it up.

In other news, our daughter's flight was cancelled last night. She was on the first plane and ready to go. They were waiting for some deicing of the runway in St Louis...which didn't happen so they cancelled it. She is now rebooked for this morning going through Chicago Midway. Her Chicago flight home is already delayed an hour. She is not happy about this. I would appreciate prayers that she arrives home tonight without any issues. I'm actually really proud of her! I never flew by myself at 19. Two years ago she was refusing to fly anywhere, so she is growing and maturing. And while upsetting to have flights cancelled and delayed it is a learning experience.

    Hoping that her Midway flight will be a go. It's cold and snowy here, but I haven't heard about delays and cancellations yet.

    Happy medication is working and kitty is doing better. It's so upsetting when our fur babies are ill. Hope DD's rebooked flight goes as scheduled. If delayed does she know she can go to airline's lounge and if not a member, can pay a fee [about $ 50.] to wait comfortably, light snacks, WIFI, some have spa services ,to not feel like cattle, herded along.
