Cleo is sleeping with us at night now

Cleo has spent the last couple of nights in the bedroom with us. Tuesday night, I was up most of the night working on my paper for my class; I worked in bed, so I just kept Cleo in there with me. When I finally went to bed, I decided to keep her in bed with me. I was awakened in the morning by a scuffle and Cleo jumping back up on the bed — I think she probably tried to leave to go to the litter box, and Emma chased her back in. I put her back in the study and went back to bed for a couple more hours.

Last night, I decided to try keeping Cleo in bed with us all night. To my knowledge she didn't try to leave but stayed on the bed all night; in the morning, she was lying against my legs, looking up at me with her wide yellow-green eyes.

I haven't given Cleo a fluid injection for several nights now. She's still using the litter box, and the level in her water dish seems to have changed, so I'm wondering if she’s drinking when I’m not noticing. Either that, or she's getting enough water in the mixture of food that I feed her. This morning when I returned her to the study, she went up to the water dish and sniffed it, acting like she was going to take a drink, although she didn't. I'll have to keep an eye on that. I'd like to make sure she's started drinking again…

It's also been almost a week since Cleo threw up anything at all, even just mucus. And she's been getting a can of food every day. And pooping, and cleaning herself all over now. And she played tonight, too! It seems my little darling is most definitely on the mend.
