The good news is that my kitty is on the mend! It turns that her thyroid is out of whack. Like off the charts hyperthyroid that actually makes cats eat less and act lethargic. She started meds on Saturday and already seems like her normal self (other than still being too skinny). She's eating like crazy now (they gave her an appetite stimulant at the vet to get her going) and I'm thrilled that she won't be leaving us so soon.
OK- D is already dressed, so I'm off to make coffee.
