bean update 4

It's going to be a long few days. There isn't much that can be done to make Bean feel better right now...the steroids will take time to work, if they even do. So she is restless, constantly moving, meowing and "clicking" [that sad, weird meh-meh-meh thing that cats do when they are in pain]. She is up and down, up and down...she lies down, twitches and moves around, then gets up, walks around, sometimes falls when her back legs don't quite cooperate, heads to the litter pan, then back again, lies down, only to repeat. And repeat. And repeat.

This is the hard part about having a pet...you feel so helpless.

It sucks to have a sick pet. Been there, done that, don't want to do it again (but I will, because it's worth it to have animal friends). Sounds like you're doing what you can do.

Sigh...yeah, it sucks. And just like you, I'll do it again and again. TheBean is a rescue kitty, almost two years in the shelter...I knew that she would have troubles, given her medical history, but that didn't stop me from taking her home.

Thanks for listening, and for the kind thoughts...
