I went over to visit Tara at my mum's place today, and brought her chicken breast meat.
Here's Tara, lying very contentedly in the porch.
We think Tara is just an extremely choosy eater. Right now, her current favourite is sardines with rice. She eats the chicken as well.
That's her eating up the remnants of her lunch. I can see she is slowly filling up (no more skin and bones). But there is still some nasal discharge. The cough has stopped.
