Great News

The specialist saw Savannah on Tuesday, and decided that she looked okay to him, and would be better off without further surgery.

What this means: Savannah should be able to come home as soon as she starts eating on her own! Woo-hoo! We don't know if that's in a day or a week, but it should hopefully be soon.

What else this means: We should be well and truly covered on the financial field, thanks to the kindness of everyone who has helped out. Anything extra we take in is going to the animal hospital, so if you still want to send in money send it to them directly (address is here if you need it). Thank you all so much - for passing the word, sending emails, posting auctions (23 hours to go!), checking in, and of course for sending money. We'll still keep everyone regularly updated on how she's doing, of course.

I posted pictures (here) that we took of Savannah yesterday. We think she has decided that Heather's lap is just the right size and shape for her. Still doesn't like it when you touch her back legs and flanks; must still be tender back there from not really using them for two weeks, or they're still sore from the accident (or both). She likes to wander around and hiss at the other cats, and really doesn't like it if you stop her from getting into places she wants to get into (like the boiler room, or the operating room). She's going to be a handful, I think. ;)

Thanks again, everyone!

I am glad to hear the good news. I am amazed at the constant goodness there is out there. When all you hear about are such bad things, it is nice to learn of the generosity and kindness of people from all over. We all do come together to help.

Happy News! FYI - a lot of cats don't like their backsides scratched or pet until they've established a level of trust with you. Don't take it personally. Odds are in 6 months to a year she'll let you pet her backside.

they do have amazing recuperative powers don't they. She'll be home and ruling the household before you know it. Good luck keeping her out of places that you don't want her to go. Personally I gave up on that years ago. 8)

Good to know about the backside bit - that's news to me. :) I think my wife is far more worried about her misbehaving than I am, but then, she's had cats before...

As for keeping her out of places we don't want her to go, all I'm really concerned about is keeping her from eating/terrorizing our eight birds (whose pictures I will post one of these days). :)
