Worries about a setback and a vet visit

On Wednesday or Thursday Cleo threw up two huge hairballs. I was really nervous because she didn't have an appetite for several hours afterward, but then in the evening she suddenly had an appetite again.

Cleo's vet appointment was Friday. I kept her from peeing overnight so that they could do a urine draw, but then she peed in the carrier on the way there. Saturday morning we tried again, but that time I didn’t keep her from peeing for long enough, and they couldn’t get enough urine. On Tuesday we’re trying again.

It took a couple of days, but Cleo is now scratching her castle instead of my rocking chair. She sleeps inside it or on top of it a great deal of the time — sometime I can’t get her to come out so that I can take her to bed with us.

Last night she spent in the study for that reason; in the morning, however, she hopped the baby gate while the dog was outside, and came searching for someone to give her breakfast.
