Magic is doing ok-ish. Her blood sugars remain shockingly high despite a change to insulin glargine and escalating doses. I am delighted she seems robust and resilient but now is the time to let the treatment work.
She is such a chilled puss that on the way home from the vet school I decided to chance taking her to see my Mother in her care home. She adores Magic and it is just a pity she cannot have an animal with her but sadly she can barely look after herself. It is a lovely place and often the staff with bring in their dogs and let the residents pet them. There is no official therapy pet scheme in places but they are very open to having animals there.
The home were happy to accommodate my feline companion and, though my Mother's memory is poor, she loved having Magic there as she did all the sweet scratches and kisses she used to do with her.
Magic was so well behaved and a very gracious lady content to sit beside my Mum. When we came back up from the conservatory she was happy to be taken out of her travel box to be cuddled by some of the staff and was relaxed enough to nibble and groom their hair.
