Day 6 - She seems alert, same as yesterday
We syringe feed her again today. She is now more cooperative and we manage to get around 1.5 to 2 table spoon of k/d wet formula into her.
She slept in the crook of our arms again. The end of her tail was twirling around softly as we sang and spoke to her. After 2 hours of intermitent feeding and resting, she went back to her kennel to rest more. We'll see you again this evening, our little girl.
Update on evening visit:
She peed in the afternoon and again when we visited. It was a lot and diluted. Looks like the kidneys are still not functioning properly as normal pee is low in quantity and very concentrated.
She did not eat in the afternoon so we syring fed her again. I think we got her to eat at least 10ml of slightly watery k/d wet formula.
She should be feeling better as for the first time these few days, she laid down on her side and placed her head on my forearm before going into a very deep sleep within seconds. Her whiskers started twitching during her REM stage. I believe she was dreaming about running around at home again.
On the home front, we had expected Yuan Yuan to miss Xin Xin's absene the most as she was the one closest to her. However, Yuan Yuan's behavior did not change. It was as if she had never known her adopted mum at all. And surprisingly, Chang Chang's daily routine had changed. He ate less, started snoozing on our bed which Xin Xin had always been very fond of, and had been calling out for no particular reason. We are not sure if he misses Xin Xin even though they had been bitter enemies for our affection since CC was a day old.
