Her gums are ok. Thank you everyone for your suggestions and concerns. Kitty was back to normal by late Friday and by Saturday she was her old self. I always manage to overreact with Kitty as I'm afraid to allow any symptoms to linger. We have a feline holistic vet coming to the house on

Please pray for or send good vibes to my sweet FeLV+ girl Ember. She has a mass in her lungs and possibly eye cancer. She has been breathing faster than usual, though it doesn't sound labored. She was very restless last night, too, which makes me concerned that she's in pain or at least

Thank you, Beth, Sharyl, and Bonnie for thinking about my girl. She has a vet visit tomorrow. We’ll see how the lung mass has changed, and we’ll get a new cbc. Ember isn’t eating as well as I would like, but she sure loves her treats (Prescription Diet t/d – it could be worse). I've also caught
