Samantha seems to be doing better, but is having to spend extra time grooming because of the antibiotics. The steroids are chicken and liver flavored and she likes them, but Justin and I together couldn't get her to take the antibiotic. Jen told me to mix it with something she likes, so I put it in butter and put the butter on her. Putting butter on a cat is a little weird, but it's working okay.

I'm back from the vet. Possibilities include kidney problems, g/i irritation from the normal bacteria getting a little out of control, and the vet found a lump that might be cancer. There are a ton of things it could be, so we're starting with the cheapest and most likely option. They're rechecking her blood and I'm going to be giving her steroids and antibiotics for a little bit. I don't want to go for a biopsy or ultrasound if I don't have to, and the vomiting is the only thing that's been going on - otherwise she seems happy and normal. She got subcutaneous fluids and we're trying another kind of food, something that will let her lose a little weight.
