Sorry to hear he has to have fluids every other day, but I'm glad he's feeling better and putting on a little weight! Sounds like he's still feisty since you had to get a bag for him!

So glad that Sir is feeling somewhat better.  Giving fluids is quite a job, and he is lucky he has you to do that  for him.
Sending positive thoughts that he continues to improve.

Are you warming up the fluids? Many vets say it doesnt matter, but it made a huge difference for Stefie  during a bit colder weather, in summer it wasnt necessary. Also, there was a huge differencebetween giving lactated ringers and saline, he hated saline and was taking LRS calmly.

Alex0, I have not been warming it up, because the faucet in the spare bathroom leaks horribly. Sad  Maybe I will move the whole operation to the master bathroom.

On a plus note, I didn't give him his fluids on Saturday night, and he beat me to the second floor and meowed at me, as though to tell me I had forgotten.

If you want to heat up the fluid, it is enough to fill some large pot or pan with warm water and put the bag into it fora few mins before giving the fluids.

Sir had another emergency vet visit not long ago, and I'm now giving him fluids every day.  He hates it.   Sad  At least he's not running from me yet.

He had blood in his urine the other day, so I put him back on anti-biotics.  thankfully, it cleared up within 48 hours, and he's back to his normal self, begging for my salad bowl and sitting on my big chair with me.

He's not ready to go yet, and I'm not ready to let him go.   Undecided

Thanks, Ned.  To complicate matters, for the first time since I found her, Lilly didn't eat this morning.   Undecided

I hope it is nothing serious with Miss Lily and for lots more quality time for you with Sir.

I also hope there is nothing seriously wrong with miss Lily.

Good lic with fluids for Sir, small things can make a difference, for example where you give fluids, how calm you are, which fluid, temperature of the fluid etc. Fluids do make a huge difference, so in the end even if he hates it, its only a few mins of that, and he will likely behave normally towards you otherwise when he doesn;t see the fluids bag and needle.

She ate, and then she threw up this morning.  We've never figured out what is going on with her tummy.  She has a lot more silver in her fur this year that she had before.

Sir is grumbling a lot, but so far, he lets me catch him.  I'm getting about 75 ccs into him now, rather than 100.
