Kitty Update

Well over the last week the kitty has gotten really sick she lost 1 lb she only weighted 2.0 lbs. She had to stay over night Saturday at the vets for IV for fluids, check-up and to get a stool sample as she has really bad Diarrhea and slept 24/7.

Well we brought her home Sat w/
antibiotic/ parasite medicine and special vitamins and special kitty food. Well this morning she is getting sick again and is not drinking and she has bad Diarrhea again. They did say she may get sicker before she gets better.

We called the vet this am and off to the store to get her pedialyte and guess what Baby chicken food.She needs the liquid and the baby food to try and calm the stomach...

Eggplant Au Gratin

I used the homegrown eggplants I got from my mom to try and make the above recipe from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Eggplant-Au-Gratin/Detail.aspx . The only changes to the recipe was I cut and salted the eggplant to remove bitterness and moisture and I placed it in this larger bowl as I don't have ramekins. Plus who can get a meal out of a small ramekin?
I liked the recipe idea the only thing I didn't like as the seedy taste... it was like eating sunflower seeds in your Spaghetti :O)
