Thanks again to everyone for their purrs, prayers, and positive thoughts. We have started transitioning to the new food, and Merlin and Dragonheart seem to enjoy it. Devi, the one who needs to eat it, doesn't like it as much, but hopefully she will come around. Dragonheart seems to no longer be in pain since starting the painkillers. Merlin is still doing great. You can visit his facebook page to hear him purr.
