So I've become a real lazy bum. Mom is taking really good care of me. Feeding me a carload of supplements with every meal, giving me pain meds when I need them, assisting me as I need it with mobility. And I sleep a lot. On top of mom a lot of the time.
I'm also present to what's happening with me and with mom. I'm eating and drinking and using my box regularly. I wag my tail frequently. I'm doing the best I can. I'm an old cat now.

I've been suffering with arthritis in my spine for who knows how long, as shown on yesterday's xray. You know us cats, we're stoics, we never let on that we're hurting until we've got one foot in the grave.
Dr. Kris gave me a steroid shot yesterday that should last for two weeks. And several cans of Urgent Care food that I've been gobbling up since we got home yesterday...because I'd nearly stopped eating and let my weight get down too low.
So I seem to be on the mend, barring something at this point unforeseen in my recovery.
We're hoping the one shot will get me over the hump with pain management and getting my food intake back on track. If that doesn't do it, we'll talk about longer term solutions.
Anyhow, glad to be back with y'all. Purrs and meows!

Mom's beside herself. She keeps assuring me I don't have to try to take care of her, too, along with just trying to keep myself together. We both fear that my time might be short.
Pray for us both, will you? Thanks, dear readers. I love you. Beeg

Last night I climbed onto the very same table while mom was painting. I stepped on wet paint on her palette, then walked on a finished painting! Mom wasn't happy about that at all, needless to say. And I momentarily wound up in the dog house.
Crafty mom, though, was able to carefully cover over my paw print. And then she humbly apologized for yelling at me.
Then she said, "It's only a painting. You, my love, are forever."

P.S. Mom snores lightly when she sleeps on her back. Don't let her know I told you!

Meanwhile, mom and I are camped out at home, having ourselves a bit of a stay-cation. Which means mom doesn't have anywhere she needs to be for a couple weeks, so mostly we're home together and I get to watch her make art.
See you again, before the solstice.
