Malcolm Update

The little guy has an inflammatory bowel condition caused by, what? Trauma? Something he ate? It's impossible to say but the result is the same. Very little was moving through him, hence the vomiting. The food literally, had no where else to go. I saw the x-ray and this cat was stuffed and swollen. Poor fellow. The current course of treatment is several small meals a day of a high fibre mix, including wet food for fluid increase. he's also on medication to coat and soothe his stomach and intestines. He's thin and sluggish but hasn't vomited since he got home.

As for knitting, I'm working on the Top Down Bolero from Headwater Wools. It's the most bizarrely worded pattern I've ever seen and there's been a lot of ripping and re-reading. Finally, 25 rows in, I think I have a handle on it.
I also finished Tzarina. Pictures soon.

I'm glad your little kitty is home!Nothing like a little TLC along with medication to get him back on his feet. I hope he continues to grow stronger.
