"You MUST be healthy, Bu!" ~ Chmurka...

I don't have good news.

Bu is still ill.

And much weaker now...

 

She has lost a lot of weight... just because she doesn't want to eat, eat by herself.

 

It's a vicious circle: the less she eats, the less energy she has - and the less energy she has, the less she eats...

 

So she must eat.

And now I have to force her to eat.

 

She only wants to eat when I put something in her paws, or straight into her mouth. Like an hour ago, when I fed her egg - she ate a big piece of egg, just like in her healthy days.

Immediately after eating she drops tired, and falls asleep, but still...

 

So I need to remind Bu that she MUST eat.

 

It's so hard to believe - a week ago she was a huge plump 232 gram girl, and I wanted her to get a bit more slim for the spring...

 

Bu's lymph nodes are not growing bigger - at least I think so - this is good, of course.

But so what, I just didn't know her health would deteriorate so much..

Maybe it's the antibiotics - they do much damage to the body, luckily she's been off antibiotics for 2 days now.

 

So all I can do...

...If I manage to make her eat more, I hope she will get stronger, that's all that matters.

 

Bułeczka is all that matters.
