Sooooo...This will be a short post. One update, really:
Yep. I brought kitty back to the vet, where I spent another bajillion dollars on more tests to figure out why her eye thing is back. It's probably nothing (or it's something really bad). But most probably nothing serious at all. Probably just a touch of kitty herpes. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go stare at my cat.
