In the fall, Mollie seemed to be not feeling well. She was lethargic and slept all the time. (Yes I know she’s a cat but “all the time?”) Anyhow, I put her through blood tests, x-rays and eventually an ultrasound to find out that there is nothing wrong that can be seen. *bangs head on table*
After whining to my vet, she thought that it may be a digestive issue and recommended a low level steroid every other day (just like I gave to Hazel for her GI issues).
I was willing to give it a try. It’s not expensive and maybe it would help. (I also had some left from Hazel that weren’t expired).
It was a miracle! Mollie is now as annoying as the other cats (almost). She is demanding pets and hugs. She’s been coming downstairs to commandeer my lap (much to the dismay of Gracie). It’s been the rebirth of the old Mollie although a little less active with a touch of grouch.
She will be 16 in the spring so I know my time with her is shorter than I wish. I am delighted that she is enjoying her days. We don’t have any idea what was wrong. It could be as simple as acid reflux. (A bellyache makes me cranky.) The good news is — no tumors, heart or organ disease. This was my holiday gift!
Mollie and the gang wish you a great weekend.
