    Surely tarasgirl. I won't fail to do it. Sombra must be wondering what she has dne to deserve so many hugs. 11_2_104.gif 11_2_104.gif

    Just checking in and wondering how Sombra is! Hope she is beginning to feel a little more playful, @golondrina, yes? :vibes::hearthrob::lovecat::hearthrob:

    Well no tarasgirl, I'm afraid Sombra is far from being her normal self. Fortunately in an hour's time she will get the last dose of the antibiotic she has been having for the last 5 days. She has completely recovered from her cold and as I mentioned before she is eating and drinking and using her litterbox quite normally but she is lying down most of the time. She hasn't been lying on my desk or sitting on my computer table as she did normally or following me around. She is not napping on her tree anymore or even climbing on it. . She does still sleep at night on my legs but she doesn't rush to my chest to do her kneading and offer her endless licking kisses when I wake up in the morning. In fact there hasn't been any of it at any time.

    I thought I knew all her hiding places but this afternoon she disappeared for a
    couple of hours and I couldn't find her. She finally reappeared when I was calling her but I didn't see where she came from. i couldn't help picking her up although I know she doesn't like that and then I sat on the sofa with her in my arms. To my surprise she went to sleep with her head and front paws on my chest. I didn't dare move until she woke up some 20 minutes later. It was the only affectionate contact from her since she became ill.

    Hopefully she will be herself again when the effect of the antibiotic wears off.

    Many thanks tarasgirl for asking about her. Excuse me for the long discourse

    Oh, no apology necessary, @golondrina -- I want to know how she is! It sounds as if she is still feeling the effects of the antibiotics. Sometimes it can take a few days to get back to normal, I've experienced. It is good that she is normal in all of her "vital" activities.
    Do you have a lounge chair, by any chance? My Tarifa used to hide in the back of my dad's lounge chair! And Elvis, when he first joined us, dug into the gues room bed's box spring cover and would hide up in there! Corrie angel found ways to squeeze under my dad's dresser and also under his desk sides. So if you have places like those, Sombra might be hiding in them...
    All the best to you both!:vibes:

    Sombra has fully recovered from her cold tarasgirl but is taking a while to return to her previous behaviour. She has however resumed her habit of lying on my desk when I'm busy at it and comes to me when I call her. She is not asking to play yet nor is she so affectionate as before although she has deigned to lick my hands occasionally. I wonder sometimes if she thinks I'm responsible for her illness and hasn't yet forgiven me.

    As for me I am fine thank you tarasgirl although I'm a bit bothered just now with one of my recurrent back aches.

    Thank you again tarasgirl, you are such a kind and sympathetic friend. :redheartpump:

    I'm so happy to hear that Sombra is keeping you company on your desk again and that she's no longer sneezing or coughing. Don' t forget to take care of yourself, @golondrina. Lovely wishes to you and Sombra.

    Thanks mama africa. You are always so present when I'm in trouble. Things are improving, not so fast as I would wish but the main thing is that Sombra is on the road to being herself again, naughty but affectionate.:catlove:

    Best wishes to you and your lovely Missy

    Thank you, @golondrina and I hope you are feeling better soon. I empathize. It can be very difficult to deal with!
    Hopefully Sombra won't stay "hurt" for long about that.
