|My old lady cat got pretty sick earlier this year, mostly some pretty common problems for older kitties: hyperthyroidism and some decreased kidney function.
She had very serious dental disease, though, and ended up having most of her teeth removed. That was where things started to get scary. She seemed to be doing well after her surgery, but developed a rare but serious complication, and had to be hospitalized, followed by a long recovery at home.
She is doing really well now. Her blood tests have been good, she is eating well and gaining weight, she's happy and active, and things overall are great.
The problem is that she may have forgotten how sick she was a few weeks ago, but I can't. I never want to take my eyes off her, let alone leave her for any length of time. I'm too worried that something will happen to her now, after all we've been through, and things that I wouldn't worry too much about before have me on the phone with the vet now (they must think I'm nuts).
It can't be good for her to have her mom so worried about her all the time. Anyone have some advice for me?
