The many lives of Tricia

Here's a short video I took of the monster recovering after having a catheter put in to help flush her kidneys earlier this week. Not even the cone of shame can keep her from purring like an eighteen-wheeler downshifting on the freeway. All of the fluids seemed to have done the trick; blood work taken yesterday shows that her kidneys are functioning normally again and her insulin levels are right where they're supposed to be, so I was able to bring her home last night. I'm going to have to bring her back in to the vet's about every other day or so for additional fluids to be administered and possibly change her diet to something more "renal" friendly, but those are small sacrifices to make if it means keeping Trish happy and healthy. The vet thinks she may have possibly had some kidney stones and that would explain her kidney values being all over the place, plus her lack of an appetite and vomiting over the weekend. It's rough being an old lady cat, but Trish is a fighter and has never been one to let something like age slow her down.
