Stella update from vet visit

Stella had her second visit to the vet this week for fluids. She lost 2 ounces, back down to 3 pounds 12 ounces (she was 3 pounds 14 ounces). She seems to be feeling a little better. She’s been more playful over the past day or so.

The vet gave me two cans of prescription kidney disease diet food for Stella. I’ve been feeding the wet food (or rather leaving some in a bowl) for her every day. At the end of each day, the contents of the bowl are gone. No way to tell if Stella or Kiesha is eating the food.

Stella isn’t getting around as well. She has lost a lot of coordination with her hips. She still jumps up to the bed and back down but when she walks she’s not always stable.

She mostly sleeps and curls up with me every night. She still purrs and seems happy. I just don’t know how much more weight she can lose.
