Oh, no, your kitty was sick? Poor baby.

My cat in Italy had a stroke last Friday and had to be put down. Dario is devastated. She was 18, but it's still hard.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that.

Thanks. It was especially rough, since she'd not been doing well, but the vet had given her some medicine that had really made her a lot peppier and happier for a few days.

She was a good cat.

Laren has had bad constipation and dehydration. I do what I can for her, but I had to take her into the vet in December and again this week to give her subcutaneous fluids and this time she needed an enema as well. She's lost weight since her December visit, and there wasn't much of her then! She's been ignoring the food I give her, and I'm hoping that was just not feeling well that did that. She needs to get plumped up a a little.

Are you going to be around at the end of June?

Yep. My sister's not even coming then.

Are *you* going to be around at the end of May? ;)

Kitty swap sounds good. I'll also be here for almost all of July--I may be going away for a week starting at the end of July through the first week of August. Conference paper pending, so we'll see.

Poor kitty is old and is going downhill at any rate...I just don't want her to be uncomfortable in the process.

Yeah, that's a hard thing with aging cats, seeing the quality of life decline. I hope she still has some good days.

She seems like her normal self--her elderly normal self. Lots of crazy howling for no particular reason, wandering around the house like she lost her car keys, and lounging off by herself in the same general vicinity of me and the other cat, who is a momma's girl.

She still has her pink nose and her attitude, so I take that as a good sign.

I remember the wild howling and the strange wandering. Keeping the attitude is definitely a good sign!

We need "likes this" buttons for LJ, complete with thumbs up icons.

And she ate again tonight!!

Of course, the past couple days, I've been feeding them store-bought food instead of her prescription food, 'cause they like it better. But the vet herself said it was better she eat than that she have prescription food set down in front of her twice aday that she ignores.
