Step-by-Step: Making Aliyah to Israel

Documenting the very personal process of making Aliyah (immigration to Israel) by one very atypical Israeli-American girl. Aliyah on 17, August, 2005. Roadmap: What do you mean there's no roadmap?! Hang on, we're in for a bumpy ride! Ole!

They kitty is seriously stressing me out. She hasn't eaten anything since Saturday morning and then not a lot. Yesterday morning when I gave her her pill she yakked it up almost immediately but it was the only thing she yakked since she had nothing in her tummy. So yesterday after ulpan I took her back to the vet and explained that she wasn't eating but that she was drinking water (I witnessed the water drinking, though still less than usual) and that she is becoming lethargic again. Also, she has a bald spot (rapidly getting very big) over one eye and another on the back of her neck (very small still) and that is new. He took a skin sample and looked at it under the microscope and then said there didn't appear to be anything abnormal causing it but also didn't say why she has started losing her hair there. He said to make sure she gets her pills and to bring her back in on friday morning if she is still not eating. It seems to me that an entire week without eating would be very dangerous for a cat, particularly one fighting an infection! These are very small little creatures. She is still refusing food today although she kept her pills down so far. If she hasn't eaten by tomorrow I'm taking her to a different vet (and going into deeper debt --likely another 800 shekels worth). I don't know what else to do!
