We still have a ways to go, however, to be fully recovered. He still walks a little awkwardly, and occasionally wobbles, rather than moving with the fluid grace typical of cats. He has started showing an interest in toys and catnip, which is good. He and Jasmine talk to each other, although we're not sure if Fred can hear, we think he may be at least partially deaf. They also have the occasional spat where they swipe at each other and hiss, but thankfully no knock down drag outs. He is spending a lot more time downstairs and even exploring the house on his own.
I'm also trying to get his gut working consistently. When we first got him he was constipated and the vet gave him an enema. He was fine for a little while but then got constipated again. His belly was bulging and he was in such distress, really straining to use the litter box, that I took him to the vet and they gave him another enema. When he got constipated again about a week after that, despite the fact that I had switched him to some food that was supposed to help, I got him some tuna fish in oil. That got things flowing again. He is back on his regular food, with the addition of pumpkin, which he really likes. Hopefully we'll get his plumbing working consistently soon, but he has been very good about using his litter boxes (I have two set up, one upstairs in his room and one downstairs).
Here is a more flattering photo of him sleeping.
