"Colbert" is hanging out in the small animal intensive care unit at school right now, getting re-hydrated. We did some bloodwork this morning, and it looks like she has hepatic lipidosis-the same disease that Muffin has...She's acting great though, you really can't tell that she's as sick as she is! Tomorrow she is scheduled to have chest and abdominal x-rays, an abdominal ultrasound, and then she will get a stomach feeding tube so that we can get her all the calories she needs to recover from her disease (since she's not eating much on her own). I'll see if she can live without a sweater over her tube, we don't want any more incidents of sweater paralysis. I'm still hoping that we can find her owners, but Jim and I have really fallen in love with her, even though she has only been with us for a short time!
