Cats help to heal
I adore cats. After Molly’s death in May 2020, the loneliness of not hearing those purrs and meows became overwhelming.
Life kept us busy during May, June, and July, so not having 4 legged little ones around made it easier. But as the summer dragged on, the missing laughter that the little creatures bring became intense.
December 5, 2020, rolled around, and we picked up our first bundle of joy. Lily a 9-month-old chocolate point Siamese. Winning her over took a while. A year later and she has become a blessing. She has her only little quirks, and we adjust to her whims. (link)
Hard to believe Lucy celebrated her first birthday on 9-17-2021. We brought her home exactly 8 months ago. Two-thirds of her short life, has been with us. Sad when they start to get bigger and not a cute little bundle of fur as when you bring them home. We all know baby animals are so adorably cute, hard to resist. She was such a tiny little kitten, just a handful. Home coming.
And if you’re familiar with Siamese, you know they never quite grow up. Now she is still a handful of mischief. Do love every minute of it… well maybe not sometimes as you can read below. But keeping them healthy and inspired with fun things to do, they can bring you hours of laughter and joy.
She has graced our home with laughter and love. A happy, comical cat, and also mischievous.
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.
Saved many cat toys over the years. They received mild abuse, but most never used.
Then Lily joined us 8 months ago and Lucy 6 ½ months.
I dragged them out of boxes stored from our move 6 years ago. Our then 10-year-old Molly only played with a few. No point in having them scattered on the floor when she wasn’t interested. Continue reading
Being a responsible cat parent, you know spaying has to be done. But risk of anesthesia is always present. Words pound in your brain, “Everyday across the world hundreds of pets are being altered.”
The troubling part is, you have a special connection to your furry little family member, it becomes a personal thing. As with Lily, I tried to keep busy. Ready to drop whatever I was doing to go get her asap. You want to rescue them from the scary place of unknown smells and sounds. And let them know you haven’t abandoned them.
Injection for pain
They gave her an injection of Buprenorphine-SR, a slow-release medication for pain. It lasts for 3 days, and it could disorient her during the duration. A few times when sitting she fell over, sad to see her listless.
