Jack Update

I know, I know, it's all I'm talking about. Scroll past if you don't care. It's kinda the biggest thing in my world right now.


So this morning and afternoon, he ate a little bit! We got him some of the uber-fancy canned foods that are packaged and presented like people food. When I set him in front of the dish, he ate! Slowly and with lots of pauses, but it *has* been days since he's taken solid food. He ate a little bit again when I set him in front of the dish again just now.

He still has not peed or pooped. The insides of his ears are still yellow. But I have to believe that eating, even if only a little, is a good sign.

We were going to spend a few days in Vermont on college tours; the plan has been revised. Adam and Elayna will still be going, but I'll be staying home to monitor Jack. (If he'd started eating this weekend, I'd've gone; Judah will still be here, but he works very long hours, and I'd like Jack to be checked on frequently.)

So yeah. Keep thinking good thoughts for the doofy kittyboy.

*stretch again* Adam and Elayna will leave soon for Vermont, and then I will try to get caught up on the massive backlog of work and e-mail.

I am very glad to hear that he is taking food again. Poo and pee will come eventually, once there is something to process.

You've done well. I've been through this a few times.

Happy to hear that Jack is doing better, even if it's only little bit by little bit. (And don't give the frequency of Jack-related posts a second thought; this is a member of your family, for PsTB' sakes, human or not!) I will continue to keep him in my thoughts.

Continuing to send happy thoughts Jack's way (and yours!)
Glad to hear that he's eating a little, hope he keeps improving.

It's ok, talk all you want. And yeah, eating is a good thing!
Well wishes and good thoughts being sent.

The waiting-for-poop thing bugged me with Sarah. You missed, like, a month where all I could talk about was monitoring litterboxen and putting bacon grease on plates in case the cat wanted bacon grease.

Oh, man. What a /relief/ that is. Now, let us hope for the excretia, which may be a weird thing to hope for, but such is the life of a kitty-parent/partner/whatever.

Glad to hear. Eating is a good sign.
