Thanks Dede. She was on the bed by my head this morning when I woke up. She is definitely better than she was last night but only ate a tiny bit this morning. She's upstairs sleeping. I can't give her the pain medication unless she eats. She obviously has a sore throat because she is constantly swallowing and when she did eat a little this morning she appeared to be grinding her teeth. I think her jaw aches too. The foster mom told me to watch her and if she seems to be in pain, then give her medication, if not don't. She says none of the shelter's cats get sent home with pain medication. I hate for her to be in any kind of discomfort but this cat will not take medication. She foams at the mouth and becomes hysterical. As long as she is sleeping I'm not going to bother her. I hate to see her hurting but hopefully in a few days she will be feeling a little better.

I hope Snowy feels better this AM. It has been my experience that the older they are, the more misserable they feel. The pain meds should help. As long as she is eating and drinking, I would not worry too much. I am glad this ordeal is over for both of you. > > Snowy is very lucky to have you. > Dede > > "When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God" > Mosiah 2:17 > > > --- On Tue, 6/24/08, Lynne <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > From: Lynne <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > > Subject: help please > > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > > Date: Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 7:21 PM > > For those of you have had female cats, at what point should > > I be alarmed about their health.
