Also spending time outdoors with us was Cissy.

The change in her as we near the end of her second week with us, is nothing short of miraculous. The vet caring for Cissy, who is not my regular vet but one I totally trust, told me at the start of the week to not be too hopeful about Cissy fully recovering. I reluctantly agreed with her, but it was only because of the difficult first week Cissy had with us--The thought that tough (and final) decisions would have to be made were very seriously being discussed with the vet and the rescue during those first several days. But as this week passed, and I was seeing improvement in how she was feeling, and that her strength and appetite were returning, I couldn't (and can't) help but be optimistic and hopeful that Cissy will regain her health. There is no doubt as the video below shows, that she still has some hurdles to get over because her health and especially her skin issues are a result of long time neglect, and won't be 'cured' in just a matter of a few weeks. But the video also shows that there is no doubt whatsoever that she is feeling better and Cissy thinks she is too--And today when she was standing in the yard, she was telling everyone about it who would listen. I think it was her best day.
