I think she should be okay on the infection. I have been watching her really closely, and first sign of anything I'm going to take her to my cavy savvy vet.
I'm sorry about your cat. It's always hard dealing with special needs animals. I have several special needs horses too, and it is frustrating but rewarding.
As odd as it sounds, I don't think I've ever felt sorry for my boy cat. He has a twin brother to take care of him, and he's the most loving thing ever. He purrs so loud you can hear him coming a room away. I doubt he knows that he's broken. Yes, he can be frustrating, and has to have his pain medication which isn't cheap, and pills for his stomach problems.. honestly, it's nothing I wouldn't do for any of my babies. It's so great knowing I'm not the only one who can love an animal with a disability. A lot of people just want to give up.
