What a week

It's been quite a week, and it's only Wednesday. Oh dear.
Monday evening the ever inquisitive Mischa helped herself to half a pack of Trident gum, the sugarfree kind that's loaded with xylitol. In case you are unfamiliar with it, xylitol is a sweetener that is toxic to cats and dogs. It can cause their blood sugar to drop, which could result in seizures, as well as liver damage. Basically, it makes you wonder if you should even be consuming it as a human, but according to the google, our human metabolisms can handle it. Right.

So the last few days have been super fun as you could imagine. We spent Monday night getting checked out at the 24 hour animal hospital where she spent the night, last night we picked her up and this morning it was back to the doctor. Mischa is home now and doing well, her liver levels are a little elevated so she is on medication and goes back to the doctor for a follow up on Saturday.
The little troublemaker, happy to be back home after a long day and night in the hospital. 

PS. The red bandage on her arm is from having her blood drawn, she is now bandage free!
