Zoey continues to receive subcutaneous every other day and it has kept her healthy. In addition to the fluids, we've had to bathe her a bit more frequently because excrement is sticking to her hind quarters. Here is a picture of her after her most recent bath drying off in front of the fireplace.
On Saturday, September 5, Jim noticed Zoey stumbling around as her hind legs consistently gave out on her. She still seemed well and alert and wanted to move around, but unable to get very far. We feared the worst and after some quick Google searches called the emergency vet and got her there as quick as we could.
A vet tech followed by a veterinarian were able to see her quickly. The ruled out stroke and instead concluded it was dehydration and her kidneys not properly getting toxins out of her system.
They admitted her and got her on an IV for fluids and antibiotics.
She made progress throughout the weekend as her creatinine and phosphorous levels fell to normal levels. She impressed the staff there with her voracious appetite and they admitted to us with the condition that we brought her in, they expected her to have no appetite and to be vomiting the entire time.
We were finally able to bring her home Tuesday at noon time and with her came a bag of IV fluids and kidney friendly prescription cat food.
We've now given her fluids subcutaneously three different times and she's handling it like a pro. She has also put on a few much needed ounces in weight and generally looks better.
A "side effects" of sort with the IV fluids is that she puffs up a little and is a bit off balance until the fluids have a chance to evenly distribute in her body. Attached are two pictures of her after receiving her fluids. We call her our little lion when she looks like this!

I just discovered Kitty-Cam was attacked and spewing out Internet "crap" like we see in our inboxes. I had to which the site back to a default themes which is the blue colors with the tear drop logo. I need to rebuild the Kitty-Cam theme in order to get rid of this completely. Hopefully I can get that done over the weekend.
