For some reason, Dragonheart seems to find Merlin's ears delicious!
Update on Dragonheart: Dragonheart is doing much better. He took his antibiotic yesterday without any fuss. We were back at the vet this morning for IV fluids, and everything went well. His took his fluids without any fuss, and his temperature seems to be back to normal. The vet removed the IV feed today, so hopefully that will be the end of it. Dragonheart's blood work came back normal, except for slightly elevated leukocytes (white blood cells) which indicate his body is fighting off some sort of infection. But everything else was normal.
Dragonheart is a little quieter than normal now, but is eating, drinking, and using the litterbox, and even playing a little bit. So hopefully he is on the mend. We do have three more days of antibiotics to give him.
Thanks to all of you for your good thoughts, purrs and prayers. We all greatly appreciate them.
