Billie had a good day today! She ate little meals throughout the day and left her spot under the sofa to sleep in the sun on our enclosed back porch. It has southern exposure and warms up nicely and it helped that it was in the mid 60's today. Right now she is sleeping in the cat carrier that we use to give Toeshee time outs in. It has a nice soft towel and her pink nip pillow that I made her. She is in the family room with us, but has her own private space.
I have noticed she is moving more slowly now that the arthritis has been pointed out. It is in her hips. I can sympathize. Hip pain is so uncomfortable and has sidelined me many times. She never complains though, until I start to comb and brush around them. I can't blame her. I think everyone's purrs and prayers are working as far as her eating. I don't know if she'll gain any weight, but hopefully she can maintain it and not lose more. She's barely 5 pounds. Toeshee is close to 7! He's almost 7 months old and we're wondering how big he is going to be.
He is so, so naughty still! He jumps into the sink even when it has dirty dishes in it and tries to drink the "spooty" water. He will actually scale the backdoor frame and using his front legs for strength and all of his claws he will make it almost to to the top which is over 8 feet tall! He is an adorable and exhausting kitty. We have some moments of Momma /kitty bonding, but I am having a hard time connecting with him. I think it's just the kitten phase and as long as he gets affection and knows he is loved Toeshee will become a nice kittyboy. (I hope!)
It's hard to divide my time between four kitties a teenage girl and a husband who comes home tired and cranky from work. I feel as if I'm pulled in so many directions, and I wonder where the hours of the day go.
Well, Billie and I are still taking one day at a time. ...Oh, I just got up a minute ago and she wanted toe eat again! Yay Billie! (actually all 4 wanted nom noms) :)
I have so many blogs to visit. I just want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and comments. I am so worried about losing Billie, or any of my kitties. They are what keeps me going because they need me.
We send you hugs and purrs!
