Fiona in the Mirror
I hope you’ll forgive me for featuring my sweet and beautiful Fiona again today. Her dad found a camera card with an unbelievable number of forgotten photos. This one was taken in December 2010 when Fiona was nine months old. I imagine her wondering who that kitty was looking back at her. Of course she wasn’t seeing those reflective eyes produced by the flash. That probably would have freaked her out.
Normally I would save this photo for Caturday Art because of her eyes. But I found them so compelling, I had to use the photo in its original form. I am captivated by this photo and cannot stop looking at it.
I am certain some of you are curious about how Fiona’s doing. She continues to fight taking her medications. Giving her the subQ fluids is going slightly better. She usually whines and shakes while her dad tries to comfort her. Occasionally she tries to climb our of her PTU, which can cause the needle to become dislodged. I will not try to “stab” her again when this happens. Most days we manage to administer the full amount of fluid. She’s eating a bit more and not just treats; though, she continues to prefer those. We have more different brands of treats than I can count as it is impossible to predict which ones she will eat on any particular day.
Fiona sees Dr. Neel next week, and she will give you another report then.

So pretty! Elegant, too!
We hope you keep doing well,Fiona! Don’t fight so much, your pawrents are trying to help you, they love you so much!
Love that photo of you, sweet Fiona. Sending much love and many purrs your way…
Good news! Beautiful photo, too. We like to see all of your photos. And we love celebrating good news with you. Always. XO ❤
Fiona that is indeed a magical photo of you and we continue to purr for you.
Isn’t that the greatest thing when you find some old photos you have already forgotten?
We’re sorry to hear that Fiona is still fighting her meds. Is there any chance you can give them as an injection while she’s getting her sub-q? The head peep sometimes thinks that injections can be easier than pills, depending on the cat.
That’s a really cool photo! We’re glad to hear Fiona is doing well and eating more.
You are right magical photo! our best wishes for Fiona’s health… with love, Vera and 2cats2
That is a lovely photo. I have a big variety of treats too. My mum gives them to me when I won’t eat, and then afterwards I will usually go and pick at my proper food.
Fiona is such a beauty! We’ll never get tired of seeing her, no matter how many pictures you post of her.
I’m glad to hear that Fiona is eating a bit better. I know what you mean about having more kinds of food than you can keep track of, and that you can never guess what Fiona will like on what day. That’s exactly how my angel Rosie was, especially before we got a good handle on her renal disease. I’m also glad that Fiona is letting you give her fluids. It’s so hard when you can’t just explain to them that it’s all for their own good, but please know that you’re doing a great job with your sweet Fiona!
Purrs and prayers to Fiona! And purrs to all of you as well!
She looks very purretty. We fur sure know how ya’ feel. Mommy sez we have such a variety we kuld open a store. MOL Y’a just never know what’s gunna hit da taste buds at any given meal. Sendin’ purrayers.

What a wonderful photo of beautiful Fiona! We’re glad she’s eating better and getting her fluids. Crossing paws for a good report next week!
We love seeing both of you beautiful Fiona and we’re sending more purrs your way.
Fiona is so beautiful, and we bet she knows it too! We’ll keep sending purrs that her appetite continues to improve and she does better each day.
well, we’r trying again. For some reason it’s not allowing us to comment.
Just wanted to say hang in there, Fiona- you’re being so good abotu the sub-Q fluids!
Almost forgot, and Sampy would have killed me — he sends Astrid 2483756293476534 kisses and all of his love! Will you be his Valentine, Astrid? <3
That is a really neat photo – Fiona, you’ve got the laser beam eyes down pat! Glad to hear that she is improving with her fluids and eating.
As for not getting emails… that happened to us before with several blogs, and I finally checked my spam folder and saw that for some reason several randomly started going in there instead of my inbox. I just unmarked them as spam and it fixed the problem. Maybe that could be what is happening for you too?
I’m so glad to hear that she is eating a bit better. Poor little thing. That is such a sweet picture.
Sweet Fiona, lovely photo. Did you try Orijen treats? They are freeze dried all protein. Sage really likes them but Savvy won’t touch them

yur fotoz rockin awesum ~~~~~ 🙂
heerz two a happee heartz day oh love ~~~~~ kinda week oh end ♥♥♥ two all
That is a great shot of Fiona. I am praying for her, I hope the vet trip has some good news. If only there were a way to make her understand that the fluids and meds will help her so she shouldn’t fight it.
Fiona is such a pretty girl…….we’re sorry she’s still not eating well and fights her fluids sometimes….perhaps Dr. Neel will have some ideas and at least can reassure you that she’s maintaining and not getting worse. Sending her tons of POTP……and hugs!
I’m continuing to send purrs to Fiona. <3
We are so pleased that Fiona has started to eat a little more.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
What a beautiful photo of Fiona!!! We’re so glad she’s doing good with her fluids and treats. We purr prayers for her everyday. Thank you for keeping us updated. Purrs, Toby
We’re also very glad about this update! It still sounds like a nightmare though. And oh, I can relate to your treat stocking – my girls were the same when we had our worst medical struggle. It was so terrible, and I’m still grateful that it wasn’t any chronic disease.
Thank you for all your comments – I was laughing a lot! (Oh, and if you’re wondering: I love your Selfie blog hop, but I’ve right now no pictures for a selfie post. We’ll join you again when I’ve some more time)
That is so good to hear that she is eating at least. Make sure she gets plenty of water also. If she eats wet food, mix some warm water in it.
My Punkin lived for several years with CKD but last week his kidneys started got so bad I could feel them. X-rays showed they were larger than humans kidneys. He only wanted the watered down gravy from his food.
The radiologist thought he had lymphoma and I could tell he was in pain so Monday we had to say our goodbyes.
Glad to hear dat she’s eating a bit more.
