Tank somehow developed two "hot spots" on her back and her Pemphigus Folliculitis (auto-immune disorder of the hair follicle) has flared up again due to her body trying to get things back to normal. It's a hard job, but we're seeing results. After a visit to the vet and an antibiotic injection, her skin has calmed down quite a lot.
We're on a feeding, cleaning and medicating schedule. She's got an e-collar on to protect herself from damaging her skin and I've been syringe feeding her a blended up mixture of wet food, kibble and high calorie cat/kitten formula. She's eating it up like a champ, but in small potions. That means her feedings have to be more often. In between meals she gets syringe fed water to keep hydrated and lots of treats. It's been about two weeks and time flies. It came to a point where I didn't even know what day of the week it was!
Tank recently started to eat her kibble and drink from her bowl unassisted, which is a good sign. I still feed her by hand. I'm paranoid about her going hungry or thirsty and even more so as to how her insides would react. I can't stand picking her up and feeling skin and bones. Feeding is every three-four hours.
She still lays around a lot and sleeps, which is fine. The fur/crusts on her ears have started to come off, as it did in her previous two Phemphigus episodes. The last time, I thought she was going to die. I feel differently this time. We caught it early. We'll probably be visiting the Dr. in a week for an update, wish us luck.
Oh and I decided to cut my claws into something more usable! See those up there? They are no more. Until Tank gets better and I no longer have to feed her, wash a million towels and cloths and slather medication on her skin, I'll be keeping them short. I'll be honest though, I can type so much faster now. :P
