Visit to Diamond in Hospital

I visited Diamond in hospital this morning to take him some of his Kidney Diet food. He wasn't eating any of the chicken they had given him. He ate some of his regular food, picking at it slowly three times while I stayed with him. I was there about an hour.

He spent quite a lot of time grooming, had a good patting session and was settling down for a nap when I left. He stayed in the cosy they had provided for him while I was there, but I could open the door of the container ward and reach in to pat him in the cosy. I think he is quite nervous, and not surprisingly, as he has an arm bandaged up with a drip and has had a couple of enemas and extensive blood tests.

The blood tests show his kidney complaint, but they were not really bad. He is very blocked up with constipation and they are waiting to see if that clears. I have to ring at 3 pm for more discussion on his condition. Diamond asked me to keep his kitty friends posted.
best wishes,
Lynettea

I still keep purring for Diamond.

When I was sick, I didn't eat chicken neither. I ate just only stinky food like Salmon.
