Marf got a fluid injection at Porter Square this afternoon, and Jude reports that she was up and about for a while after returning home. Jude placed her on my bed upstairs and she hopped down and strolled downstairs and hopped back up on her favorite chair, being a creature of habit and all. She's alert though mellow, and I even saw her kick up and sharpen her claws a bit. There's a dance in the old dame yet (toujours gai, toujours gai.)
A lot of people are asking where the Paypal at. Goodness. Thank you. I've set up a Martha Fund, for those who wish to give a little something to the cat. I feel rather presumptuous describing her treatment before Angell sorts it all out for me, but judging from the accounts I've read of cats with Feline Hepatic Lipidosis, the initial IV plus the tube feeding is pretty much the norm. So here are the money buttons; I added a page to my Amazon account too for those who like using that over PayPal. Just remember, no matter which you use, write a note if you want a piratey note in return.
And thank you all again. I'm humbled, yet heartened, to know that I have such wonderful, supportive friends. I can't speak for Martha, but I know she'll be grateful to feel better when she recovers.
The Martha Fund
Martha the Cat is a mighty pirate facing a terrible battle against Feline Hepatic Lipidosis, or Fatty Liver Disease. She will be undergoing aggressive treatment, which includes 24-hour care, IV drip, vet pokings & proddings, and a feeding tube for several weeks until her appetite comes back. Sadly, the cost of this will be more than just a handful of doubloons. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated by Martha, me, and Admiral Abbie.
(Abbie says "whats Paypal, there hshould be TunaPAl")
