We’re three days out from our vet visit. Rumpy is feeling much better but, to be clear, he is still very sick.
We’ve just come in from a walk outside in the yard. We went from front to back, he took a poop, and now he’s exhausted and lying on the bedroom floor.
Rumpy is eating! Not normally, but he is taking in nutrition and that’s good. He won’t touch his regular food and he wouldn’t eat the special diet food from the vet’s office (of course), but he will eat chicken and rice, so the vegan is loading up on chicken at the grocery and cooking him some grub.
Peanut butter has always been a favorite Rumpydog treat, and he’s been getting a good dollup twice a day covering his medicines.
But doesn’t Rumpy love cookies? Actually, he’s not eating cookies like he was. He loves the Milk Bone marrow bone treats, but only the large ones. There were a few left in the cookie jar and whenever I give him one he’ll eat it. But not the little ones, and no other treats. Which is OK, they have almost zero nutritional value anyway and he needs to eat stuff that will build him up.
I am exhausted and after getting up to feed and care at our regular 3am time, I went back to sleep and didn’t get up until almost 10am. Today I’m going to the grocery for more chicken and rice, then hang out with the gang. We need some time together. This morning I woke to find myself surrounded by cats. They are all concerned and showing it each in his or her own way.
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for being here for us. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.
