Winnie update

She's been a bit peaky in the last week or so, being a bit more wobbly than usual, having trouble jumping up onto the bed and the sofa, so I called Dr. B. and asked if he could please come and take a look at her. He gave me some surprisingly good news. Yes, she's a little low right now, and he gave me a prescription to help with her blood pressure which is low, but overall, she's actually a bit better. Her gastro-intestinal distress seems to have cleared up and she's put on a teeny weeny bit of weight.

She's not going to recover completely, of course, but I think we might be over the worst. He said she's found a steady-state.

The difference came when I started feeding her chicken livers and hearts, minced up fine and mashed into her special veterinary food, three times a day. Chicken livers are good food for anyone. I've loved them forever, since my mum used to make them into curry when I was a kid. They've been a staple. They're jammed with iron and vitamin A and probably all sorts of other stuff.

It seems to have made a huge difference for my ailing and ancient cat. Imagine what it could do for you.

My kids used to enjoy "bacon roll-ups" until they found out what was inside.😄

I'm glad she's doing well... I popped over here today to see how she was doing.
