Reprieve!

Au ate roast lamb and biscuits last night.  When he jumped into bed at 445AM to ask for biscuits, I raced to the bathroom and listened to him crunch away.  Target rolled out of bed and put his face in the bowl too.

I left them to it and went to the kitchen to slice some roast lamb.  I offered it to Au AND HE ATE IT!

Target couldn't believe it. "Lamb before 5AM?" he asked.  "Is it my Gotcha Day?  Is it Au's Gotcha Day?  Is it your Gotcha Day, Mummy Cat?"  He purred and purred which added to our happiness.

Au has had another mouthful of biscuits so I'm deliriously happy. 

Cooking roast chicken for lunch as it's Au's favourite.  Paws crossed everyone! 

PS this is a pic of Target looking smug after a predawn lamb breakfast.

Go Au! I am rooting for you to eat! Actually, I know just how you feel. But let me tell ya, food really is great! My momma had to start feeding me with a syringe to get me to eat again but once I tasted it I was ready for more. She would feed me yogurt that way and it is yummy! I don't know if you can eat that but your mom might wanna give it a try. We are praying for you.
Snuggles,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Saw your comment on Lorenza's blog and came over to wish Au well. We're happy to read he's eating better. We have our paws crossed for him. Have you had the other cats tested for FIV? Maybe there's something you can give them to keep them from getting full blown FIV?

Don't know if they have allergy shots for cats. Jed [we're dogs] takes allergy shots once a week and they really help him.
