    I just wanted to give you an update on Ceira's condition.
    After taking her back to the Vets on Monday (10-16)..I was
    sent home a mild sedative..The frist night It didnt seem to
    work. As I feel Im not getting her to take her meds well..She
    is hard to handle. Mainly the fear for me is holding her the
    wrong way...or doing more harm to her then good...This
    morning I got her from her cage and she said " Hi, Kiss ME! "
    Those were her first two words she has said with in the last
    few weeks of her being sick...That made me smile..She is
    still twitching with her feet. But not as much as she
    was..Now my problem is getting her to eat her vegetables and
    fruit. She has been only eating her apples. This morning I
    gave her some kidney beans and oatmeal. She ate one bean and
    went for the oatmeal..I will keep trying more things on her
    through the day...I took another day off from work to be with
    her...My boss is not happy..But oh WELL....My animals are my
    I want to thank all three of you for your suggestions.

    Thank You

    Summer and Ceira
