Just back from today's visit and Minstrel is looking so much better. He still a poorly puss... but without his collar he looks so much more comfy and less clumsy!
He is still being fed by a tube, but now has fresh food available to try and eat and, though he looked a little interested, he still hasn't taken the leap! The 'usual' Minstrel wouldn't think twice about missing the offer of food...
Whilst we were there, as well as a lot of paw padding, purring and generally being silly, Minstrel treated us to the sight of him digging to Australia in his litter tray and doing a wee ALL over his red body suit! NICE! But at least he got up and is 'going'!
The boys came again today to give him a cuddle. The eldest is a little reluctant but showed some interest in what had been done to him, especially as you can actually see the wire in his jaw, so we had to explain exactly what had been done.
Minstrel has had an injection of antibiotics today which will last him 10 days, so will have less daily injections... and is now off the intensive care list! At last!
We also managed to start paying his bill today, thanks to all you wonderful people who have helped us. I can not express how grateful I am to you all... for donating, sharing and you kind words of support. We have now raised 55% of our total so have a little way still to go... but I have every faith that we WILL get there and we WILL get our Minstrel home (minus an eye of course!)
