Cat Couch here ...

Sorry for the long absence! I haven't been to Blogger in a long time. I have my own issues that I'm trying to deal with, but I shouldn't have left you all in the dark for so long.

Chatham seemed to be getting better. Oh, yeah, he still has all those medicines to take (our fingers and hands bear the marks of his displeasure!) and get hydrated, but he is feisty (our "grumpy ol' man in a fur coat"), eating, pooping, demanding and bossy.

He has taken to begging to going outside.

We did let him out in the backyard for a little supervised walk and he really enjoyed it (and eating and barfing up grass, too).

Unfortunately, this afternoon we discovered blood in his urine. We did take a sample in to the vet, and there are no crystals. We have an antibiotic in hopes that it's "just" an infection. My husband was the one that took the sample in, and was quite upset - the vet's staff had to reassure him that Chatham has pulled thru lots of things and he was feisty (I had visited the office earlier today and Chatham scared the pee out of a puppy) and should pull thru.

Chatham will be 20 years old on June 13.

Wow. 20 is a long time, Hang in there, most senior of all the cats!

I think Chatham needs a little gray brother to pass all his worldly wisdom onto. I know of such a little gray cat who is in need of cat guidance.
