All afternoon, she hid under the bed and refused food.
We let Tiger out to accompany her.
But she felt better being alone.
Tiger wanted to help, though.
Then, last night, she came downstairs and sat on top of the book cabinet. I decided to sleep downstairs to accompany her. At about midnight, when I woke up to check, Tabs was totally gone. I checked the whole house three rounds and could not find her anywhere. So I raised the alarm and woke my husband up. I really thought Tabs had somehow escaped through the netting.
To my relief, Tabs was hiding between the chair and dining table. Phew...cats can really hide and not come out when they are ill.
So to play it safe, we put her back in Bunny's Place. Can't have another scare like that again. I even went out of the house to look for her last night.
This morning, she refused food again. This is despite the B-complex, which is to stimulate appetite. So I had to force-feed her again. Managed to give her all the medicines and she ate the food when force-fed. I added sweet potato and VCO to her food.
This is her hiding place now, on the shelf behind the clothes.
At least we know where she is.
I know we have to wait it out as we've done everything that the vet has advised. She just has to pass out all the dratted stuff from her gut to feel better again. At least she is able to retain the small amounts of food and there is no vomiting.
She is taking Metronidazole (antibiotics), Gentle Digest (probiotics), B-Complex, Laxatone and liquid paraffin (both to stimulate defecation). She has been urinating but not defecating yet. The vet said it may take up to 2 weeks to clear off all the stuff from the intestines.
