It has been a rough month for my little ones.
Sometimes we never know what causes them to get ill. Especially since mine are both indoors. No sliding glass door. No contact with other animals or people. We didn’t even touch another animal, yet they still got sick.
The ironic part, neither was sick because of the other.
Started with Lucy having loose bowel movements. Several days, and still no change. Soon graduated into her meowing and standing on the bed. Her usual MO for a no-no. Band her from the rooms with beds… after cleaning up several messes. Two plus weeks we had bedroom doors closed.
Lucy either did it on the bed or in the litter box. There could have been a third alternative. I’ll take my wins where I can.
Lily and Lucy both have red gums. There has been improvement since I first started on this quest. Lily’s breath improved. Their coat is silkier. Still, there wasn’t enough progress.
By appointment time for both cats, I made a recent purchase of cat food. Ugh.
My account of the day:
Tuesday, 3-30-2021, Lily scheduled to be spayed. The anguish a cat parent feels exists when you have to take your unsuspected little one in for the procedure.
“Why am I not getting breakfast?”
“Why is Lucy eating and not me?”
You see their questions in the expressions and muttered meows. Heartbroken, you know it has to be done.
Then the worries. Under anesthesia. What if things don’t go well? Try to block those negative thoughts.
Hey, it happens every day across the world. Why should a healthy cat have problems?
