Thank you @violette! I agree! Compared to how Minnie was - teetering between life and death - she is making a great recovery. Also agree the vet is a total gentleman and a very caring person. He has said to me, if I want to take a few days away, that they will take Minnie in and look after her, while I'm away. He's said this a few times, so I think he means it.
Sure have, @sassy! Today, Minnie has gone out in the garden on her own a couple of times and taken advantage of the lovely warm day and balmy breeze. Am hoping she will be able to do that lots more from now on!
