Some may remember that a few months ago, we were preparing to say adieu to our 18-year-old kitty Miss Missy. She had begun the tell-tale signs of checking out and we were sad, but grateful that she didn’t seem to be in any distress. Then, after about two weeks of the death watch, she rallied and returned to a (somewhat) normal cat-like life in our home. While she’s still not 100% accurate with her litter box and her appetite is greatly reduced, the old girl seems to have decided to stay with us for a little longer. She sleeps a lot and finds comfortable positions for her arthritis.
She still grooms herself to the best of her ability and shows remarkable agility for an animal who is 90 years old (it is 5 to 1 for cat years right?)
But her favorite thing of all is to cuddle with her favorite guy especially on a warm spring day.
How grateful we are to share our lives with our wonderful animal family. Hope you and yours have the same privilege and if you are in need of some furry companionship, just trot down to your local animal shelter and give a happy home to a needy critter.
Jim, Deb, Missy, Buster, Rowdy, Sammy, Mr. Mulder and DAVE!
