Thanks to those who sent us their support. It must have worked because Copper came home tonight, back, apparently, to normal! I can't tell you how relieved and delighted we are.

It is true that her kidneys are failing but she seems to have had an infection that made her poorly, so she has antibiotics plus medication and special food to help her kidneys function better. She goes back to the vet next week for a check-up and more blood tests.

The dogs seemed really pleased to see her - Meg was nearly in the cat box with her and Tess has been following her around all evening, which gives Felix, the usual recipient of Tess's attentions, a break. Cass, in his usual style, "welcomed" her home by trapping her in a corner and holding her there with a hard stare.

I suppose at her age we're on borrowed time, so we'll just make sure her quality of life is as good as it can be for as long as possible.

Sorry to hear about copper but glad to know she's back home again : -) All you can do is take each day as it comes and enjoy every moment.

Thanks. She's been for a check up tonight and all is as well as can be expected. She's really bright and active, so hopefully the medication and the special diet will keep her in good shape for a while to come.
