Misty Mitten is doing really well. She has been confined for the past 3 days and up until this morning she had stayed in her cat box mainly sleeping. I had held dishes of food and water for her and she ate and drank well but didn't want to come out.
Ian went up to see her after breakfast this morning and she came out of her cat box to see him. He was able to pick her up and give her a cuddle, he brought her downstairs to show her around. She came out again at lunchtime when I took her some more food and lay onthe carpet in our bedroom. Her fur was a bit scruffy so I gave her a nice brushing as she can't use her back legs for scratching.
This evening she has eaten and drank plenty and is washing herself - all a really good sign.
Thank you everyone for all your lovely good wishes - they are obviously working.
