Thanks all. Maddy seems to be better by baby steps each day. Last night she was actually initiating some contact with us, although she still is mostly content to lay in the crate in the bedroom with water, food and litter nearby. She does look ruff around the edges and is walking very stiffly in her rear end. But she does have more energy and is now talking to us again. As long as I see some improvement I am willing to keep giving her a chance. I was supposed to call the vet today...well I tried, but they failed to tell me they were closed today, thinking this might have been a last minute thing as Dr Scott is usually really good about these things and since he is a personal friend I could call him at home, but and unless Maddy starts to go downhill will give him his off time.
I have a friend who told me yesterday I was being selfish....really...she's not in pain and is making progress and is responsive to us, she is a people cat so yes she is not totally herself, but much more so than the last few days. I will continue to give her both dry and canned food, monitor her intake and output and if she continues to improve will talk to Scott about what more we can do on Monday. If she goes downhill we will send her peacefully to be with Maggie and Bear. Both of who she loved and loved her. Don't know what more I can do at this point...
