No selfie today I enjoy my spring feelings !
Dammit, for once I wanted to make a selfie I can't find the camera !!
This week didn't start very well for Kim. She drank a lot, ate little and as soon as she had eaten she had to vomit. She also did a we we twice on her carpet and made bigger business in the entrance hall.
The whole week I observed her and noticed that she could only lay down with a lot of difficulties and she meowed in pain when I touched the far end of her back and had lost a lot of fur at the beginning of her tail. Her nose was running and she sneezed all the time. It was just awful. Finally we took a decision, she was 20 years old and we wouldn't start to torture her with all kind of medication only to keep her alive for a few weeks more. With a bleeding heart I called the vet and asked her to come, as I didn't want that she would be put asleep elsewhere then at home. She also was so blown up like a balloon probably from all the water she drank. She wouldn't fit in my carrier.
We fixed an appointment on Friday at noon. And then happened something very strange ! Kim who had always known what I intended to do, before I did it and even only thought about it, like going to the groomer, must have felt something, because she suddenly disappeared, I just saw her disappearing on our little graveyard where all our animals are burried.
It had been a long time that she hadn't been outside, and I was very worried, but as it was only 9 am I thought she will be back by 12 ! Unfortunately not ! The vet came earlier so I couldn't even tell her that Kim had disappeared, and she told me to call her for another appointment. I was so down I wanted to have this behind me and proposed Saturday morning.
In the afternoon Kim still wasn't there ! Behind our house are all very high weeds and thistles because it is an empty ground. With boots I made my way until our fence from the other side, scratched my hands and nearly fell, but Kim was nowhere to be seen. I gave up !
At around 9 pm Mr. G. suddenly shouted "she is back" ! And there she was, went to her bathroom, tried to lay down, didn't eat but fell asleep. I was so relieved, I thought maybe she is hiding somewhere and will die alone as some cats do. Therefore I had no courage to call the vet for an appointment and Kim is still sleeping in the bathroom.
I will see over the weekend now, maybe she will get better ?
These were the last pictures (I thought) before she disappeared. She still looks so good. I only want that she doesn't suffer. Now I'll observe her and wait. She hasn't eaten anything the whole day, but drank a lot. I suppose it is like with all cats .... the kidneys !
Rosie fortunately is in good health and even plays outside with leaves or with whatever moves.
Our walking stomach Arthur, refused a beer, but has put on weight which made me very happy because at one time he was all bones and fur !
