    She's at the quiet time of her day, But I popped the top off her pet taxi which she is using as a house so i could feel her over, she is still nervous about being touched, if you touch her head and pet it she is happy even closes her eyes. if you touch her body on the sides at all she fences and makes squeaking noises of fear. however I do feel a wee bit of meat developing on her hips, it wasn't there before so a week of good food it starting to help, no changes on her ribs yet,but I'm sure getting back to her weight will take time. She had a bit of smooch poop today, on her floor.. but everything else is in her litter box like a good girl. Daphene thanks you for asking

    It's good to know she's doing well. I hope she picks up that weight she needs! Poor little girl. It just makes me sick to hear of such abuse :(

    Gabby, it's so good to know she's eatingmore! Her little body probably didn't know how to handleplenty of good food!

    How's the surgery site? Is it healing well?

    Oh, good! Do you have to put antibiotics on it or anything? She's probably got oral ones on board doesn't she?

    So cute, she's already taking off to hide :) She seems to be comfy with you!

    How are she and Promise doing? I think that Dog is a guardian angel, too.

    It was so deep into her face that the hole was filled withPenG and stitched up, the outside looks good, it's notknowing wht going on inside that could be the problem. She is onbaytril for her oral antibiotics, and metican for her pain. she was ona heavier pain med her first couple of days.

    however new discovery..we have all been so concentrated on her face wenever stopped to see how she hops.. one hind foot curled under... it iseither dislocated or broken somewhere in the hip/knee reagon.. poorbaby, that would make a excelent reason why she hasn't likedto be touched on the side, or picked up... she still kicked me withthat foot when trying to do her meds, looks like we will be doing xraystomorrow.. feel like an idiot for missing this....but thenshe also had 2 vets look at her as well.. but they were looking more ather facetoo....[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

I am just so angry right nowthinking of those **insert word I can't type here but use yourimagination** people doing that to her. :X

    Thanks for the compliment on the avatar, I love that picture of him, thinking of getting it printed up and framing it.
