Penny did eat yesterday she finished her breakfast around 2pm, this normally is gone in about 4 minutes. She has not eaten much since, just a little bit of breakfast this am and did not touch her tea last night.She did have her home made doggie ice cream made with yoghurt and peanut butter, we have read that yoghurt is good for dogs on this medication, so everyone is a winner, especially as it gives us about 15 mins with out a squeaky toy being thrown in our lap.
Yesterday she was a little off color, but nothing to substantial, she whined a little and was restless for a while but picked up again later. I think sometimes when we know there is an illness we see maybe more than we would normally, but I am not sure this is a bad thing unless it gets out of hand. I hope we are not at this point. We are trying to give an honest account of each day. We will be taking her back to the vet again later and asking for another blood test to see what the status of the Lyme is and asking a lot of questions.
In a previous entry I mentioned about the "deal" that Penny and Murphy our young coon cat have. Just before Penny took ill this became very obvious when one of the people left the lid off Penny's treat jar. Now of course she can not get up to it, but she can smell it, and sat looking up. Murphy noticing the glassy look and smelling teats jumped up and deftly put in his front leg and pulled out a treat. This was not to his satisfaction so he tipped it off the top to the waiting Penny, who of course devoured it quickly. This soon became a great source of entertainment for Murphy, seeing if he could in fact hit her on the head with the treats and watching how quickly she could find and eat them. Dad came in and seeing what was happening put the lid on the jar, I was to busy enjoying the action to do anything like that. Anyway this is how the "deal" seemed to start.
I have a concern though and this is just after Penny arrived our other cat Ash brought her a Vole to play with that he had caught. I am dreading the thought of what this will bring come the spring! :-)
Take care everyone, hopefully tomorrow Penny will be back to eating properly and all will be well. We hope you all have a good day.

I don't always eat everything when I am supposed to. You'll know when you are hungry enough to eat - at least that's what I tell my Mama!

Love -
