Charlotte: An Update

Just a quick post tonight, but Charlotte is feeling much more herself.

Her appetite continues to return, and she's starting to get her spirit back.  I know that when she first got home from the hospital, Maera became obsessed with her.  Charlotte couldn't flick an ear without Maera coming over to thoroughly sniff every inch of her.  I KNEW Charlotte wasn't herself because she just lay there and tolerated this treatment... sure, her ears were back, but there was just no fight there.

Well, yesterday Maera came over to sniff her, and Charlotte slapped her across the face.

And she is regularly begging for milk at the refrigerator, and using her hyponotic eyes on me.

So.  Her prognosis might not be a good one, but for the moment, we have our Charlotte back. Grumpy, demanding, sweet, imposing, talkative, loving Charlotte.


  1. Such good news! We hope she continues to recover. Isn't it scary when they don't act like themselves?

  2. Never has a whap across the face been so welcome!! Here's hoping that she's on the up now!! x

  3. Oh, that indeed is good news! She is so sweet, it's terriable to see her not feelin' herself.

  4. Hoping Charlotte is still doing well. I was just spending some of my lunch hour catching up on your blog...I can relate to so much! I too neglected both my blog and reading others' blogs this past year dealing with first my sick horse, then my friends'...fortunately, everyone is better and I'm hoping it will be a little while before another shoe drops! I very much enjoy your blog and hope you'll find time to pop on now and again and catch us up on your sweet furbabies.

  5. Gosh -- a month ago?? I really hope things have continued to improve . . .

  6. That’s really great news! I’m glad Charlotte is doing well after that terrible experience. Isn’t she a darling with those sweet and lovely eyes? Hope Charlotte can recover fully. I miss seeing her full of energy and happiness in her eyes. Have a wonderful and blessed weekend everyone! See ya around!
