I hope she gets better tomorrow.

No, I work at a cats-only practice with hours of M-Th 8-9, F 8-8, S&S 9-6. There is not a doctor here every hour of the day, but a good majority.

I forgot to mention that last night about knowing even which eye is the problem - many times there a difference in pupil size but both could be ok for the ambient light - it makes it trickier unless the reflexes are not working like they should. Hopefully they'll get to the bottom of it soon! One thing I would ask about is if they have checked her blood pressure - if not see if they are able to do it at her next checkup just in case. High blood pressure can cause eye problems, though it is more common to have it in both eyes than just 1 - won't hurt to check.

Apparently the "wrong meds" will still do what was intended by the right ones. The difference is that they take longer to do it, so I have to check her tonight and see if there are any changes to her eyes.

The spitting up has stopped. She was being VERY affectionate last night, and she watched TV with me and slept in bed with me. I think the vet visit stressed her out.

I love my new kitty.

Yesterday I was out with my mom (she was picking out a new sink and faucet that I'm installing for her) and the whole time I kept bitching about how I had to get home to feed the kitty, because her feeding time is 6pm and it looked like I'd be almost an hour late.

I feel in debt to the kitty for keeping me company while Jess is away.

I had a cat that never cared for me much...until I took him to the vet (and more importantly, brought him back home). After that first vet visit that cat thought I was the best thing since catnip!

Hehehe! It was a bit of a pain getting Cricket into her carry case, but once the vet opened the door (after the exam was over) she couldn't jump in that case fast enough.

It's amazing how that works, isn't it?

I've learned with some of my more resistant cats that I try to put them into the crate face forward and when the lean backwards really hard I quickly turn them around and put them in backwards. So far it's working.

I lowered her feet first with the crate facing up. Seemed to work, because she was NOT going to go in face first while she was still concious.
