I am just feeling a bit like my life has been taken over by my cats. Between cleaning up after them, trying to feed Widgit every 2 hours or so, pilling her and giving fluids, I am tired of this. I try to just take it in stride and remind myself that they are blessings but that is getting old. I should be thankful that they don’t require minute by minute care.
If it was just one of them, things would be fine. Yesterday Mooshface threw up and pooped all over the bedroom carpet. It took me a good 30 minutes to clean up. It probably because she ate TOO MUCH but I know her anal sac issue has been bothering her too. Since Widgit’s kidneys don’t work and we inject her with fluids, she pees A LOT! I laughed a little when I took her in for weighing the other day. They said she gained 5 oz up to 7 lbs 2 oz. I should be happy but I know how much her weight fluctuates with her water weight. The litter gets cleaned minimum of twice a day but often everytime I go in that bathroom.
Widgit is still not eating much. She loves her ahi and ono but look at me crazy when I try
chicken, baby food or tuna cat food. I’ve figured out that she doesn’t like things from a can. The pouches are better; she’ll lick all the gravy and leave the pieces for Mooshie. She does munch on her prescription dry food but not enough to sustain herself.
I’m going to try to do some gardening today just to get out. My back fence “covered with vines” is hardly done. I haven’t gotten out consistently and now the vines are already growing back.
I guess that is life; I’m just looking for something that isn’t a total chore!
Have a great weekend! I’m trying.
