cat and mouse

i am in pain. i am in love.

Well, the good news is that the presumptuous cat does not have a GI obstruction or any masses in her abdomen that are obvious on x-ray. The bad news is she's hospitalized overnight for tests, I.V. fluids, and observation, as she's lost over a pound (she's down to a little over six pounds; she's a tiny kitty, but this is ridiculous) and she's obviously Not Well.

So we're waiting to find out, basically.

Cross your fingers for her. She's the Complaint Department, but she's nearly seventeen, and there are probably limits to the invulnerability conferred by even her attitude.
