I just wanted to let all my caring readers know that Monkey’s follow-up test for FIV (feline AIDS) was negative. So, the original test was a false positive. The second test, which has to be sent out to a lab, is fool-proof. This test was $115.00 but if it means my little one is okay, it is worth every penny. They think it was definitely an infection which lowered the white cell count but the medicine has been working.
So, after a week of being inside (and driving us all crazy) Monkey is finally out on another adventure! She has been getting increasingly better as the days go, with only 2 days left on her antibiotic. I stopped the appetite
As a result, Violet and I are relaxing in the backyard without feeling guilty leaving her inside. I hear her little bell every once in awhile so I know she is nearby and okay. When she gets hungry or needs to use her litterbox she will be home. Yes, she always comes home for that! Someone said she was going in their BBQ – I said I doubt it was our cat. Sure enough, it was the black feral cat that DOESN’T have the hot pink collar and bell.
Okay, well the brat cat just came home so it is time for dinner.
