... and I always swore that I'm make a bad mother.
Bunyip is doing okay; she hasn't gotten any worse, the wound seems to be healing nicely, and last night she even had a little water all by herself. On the other hand, there havn't been any vast improvements either - she's still not eating (although I am feeding her nutrient-rich cat specific milk (which she puts up with without much fuss) every few hours to keep her fluids up), still very lethargic and very quiet.
But she is healing, and she isn't dehydrated. Small steps. Me, I'm just tired and fretful.
****** UPDATE ******
Bunyip just ate a little bit of smelly fish cat food. It's her first interest in food for a long while, so I am most pleased! I will try her again later in the day on some more. If she eats, she'll be able to stay home (apart from a brief check-up tomorrow with the vet).
Yay for little steps.
