He's doing better, thanks for asking

Mr. Gomez is quickly becoming his usual pain-in-the-ass again, thanks to the doxycycline and prednisone the vet prescribed. It didn't take long after the first dose for him to start looking a little better and start pestering us while we tried to read or watch television. The prednisone makes him very thirsty, so he's been drinking tons of water and, of course, peeing a lot. He woke us up in the middle of the night, but wouldn't go outside because there was a thunderstorm going on. Instead, he decided to whiz on the carpet. Bastard.

We'll find out for sure if he's got a tick-borne disease sometime next week. If so I'm glad we caught it because those things can get really bad (fatal, even).
