Up and Down

Cat Couch here:

Well, Chatham is eating well, and is pooping big poops. He fights the pills harder than ever, which I take to be a good sign. His back legs continue to give him trouble, and he's fallen and slipped a few times. He is still able to get up and down off our bed to get to the litter box, with the help of a big footstool. For the first time in over 20 years I'm sorry that we have mostly hardwood floors - a short-napped carpet would be easier for him to get traction on.

We took in another urine sample, hoping for more improvement. Unfortunately, the infection hasn't cleared up any further. Fortunately, it hasn't gotten any worse. We've been assured that this is not unusual for winter-time illnesses. I'm off to get more medicine now.

Thanks for all of your good wishes and kind comments.

Hi Chatham - we all keep thinking about you! More anti-biotics can't be fun, but it sounds like you are doing better. Winter is no fun for us senior catizens! -- Alberta
