Little Fleur didn't make it. Though the antibiotics did seem to work a little bit, her mouth didn't get any better...making it almost impossible for her to eat or drink. I have rarely seen so much stamina in a cat. Though she was very sick and very thin and should have been too weak to stand up...to the end she kept chatting, and walking and exploring on her wobbly little paws. Even at the vet, while we were waiting for the sedative to work, she kept exploring the office. She went peacefully and she is now resting by the lavender patch in the garden.
