Tessa update

Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post about Tessa. [hugs]

I'm back from the vet now, and she has a high temperature and is a bit dehydrated, but they don't know why. The vet did say that they've had a lot of cats with fevers lately. She suggested blood tests so I said yes, and will get the results back tomorrow afternoon. Tessa's also had a quick dehydration drip and an antibiotic injection, and some liquid antibiotic for us to give her twice a day.

The vet also said that her glucose levels were up, but that it could be due to stress and dehydration. Burmese however are prone to diabetes, and if she has that (which would be unconnected with her current problem) we'd have to give her insulin injections. !!!

I told Tessa she was a very high-maintenance-cost cat, but she's worth it. She's gone back to her heat-pad and is curled up there looking miserable. Claudia is beside her, looking concerned. :-)
