Were now back from our Christmas holiday and Kalis
rapidly amended holiday
house worked OK. She was able to get at the wire on the roof
but she had to be at full stretch to do it so she didnt spend
much time gnawing it.
It was a bit of a struggle to get her to take her medicines. She
got bored of the porridge that I was mixing them with so I switched
to scrambled egg which she really enjoyed for a few days. Towards
the end of the week she was getting bored of the egg so I switched
to mashed up banana. This got us through the rest of the week but
she did miss a few doses when she refused to eat the medicine. One
of the vitamins comes mixed in a molases-type medium and it has
a very strong smell (and taste?). Kali doesnt seem to like
this very much and I think this is what put her off more than anything
She was very active most of the week, especially at night! She
seemed more like her old self so something seemed to be making a
difference. She seemed better during the middle of the week and
became more withdrawn again towards the end.
I wasnt able to observe the foot flicking/twitching properly
because she was in a different place and her behaviour was a bit
different anyway. She came out to explore the cottage a few times
but because everything was new she was very distracted with exploring.
Now that were home I was able to observe her in her normal
environment and there has been a definite lessening of the shaking/twitching.
It is both less frequent and less severe. However she still looked
a bit uncomfortable and sat hunched up for a while while she was
out and her poos were soft again this morning. They had been OK
Were off to the vets again tonight. I wish I had something
more definite to report and Ill see if there is any alternative
to the molasses vitamin supplement which Kali doesnt
seem to like.
