We first saw Milly might be on the road to recovery when she began to wash herself and then drank an amazing amount of water. Her progress was slow but yesterday she noticed the decorations in the hallway and gave one, just one, a pat. We were so pleased ,since for days she had either curled up tightly or sat and stared straight ahead. To day she is looking out of the windows and eating a little more. Her breathing is still very noisy but now we feel certain she will soon be just fine. She does look extremly serious and as if she was just checking things out.
