Vic update

I couldn't answer all the kind comments about Vic, but here's an update.

At first things didn't look good. We've never been able to give him pills and even liquid antibiotic is hard, so we were crushing the pills into his food. He ate a few doses but then refused to after a couple of days. We decided to give up on the pills. Antibiotics only help in some cases, they don't even know why they do, and we thought they were making him nauseous so we're just feeding him tuna which he likes. He's eating that and perking up a lot. He also has plenty of water and K/D dry food available as usual but I don't think he's eating the dry food.

Anyway, he's looking a lot better, more cheerful and like his old self. He was spending all his time outside but he's coming in again and today stayed inside on a snuggler which we're taking as an encouraging sign as he hides outside when unwell. He's here now and has just had some tuna.

Greg just said he's in the latest cat play box. :-D [goes and gets photos, including one with an interested Ashley]
