I have had a number of emails inquiring about My health status, so I just wanted to let you all know that I am hanging in there. As you’ve seen in recent blog posts, I do spend most of My time resting in boxes that the Guardians have strategically placed around the house. I am able to get from box to box under My own power though, and I even still make occasional trips up to Kitty Valhalla to spend the day with Sir Thomas. I also make regular trips to My food and water bowls, and to use the litter box. Life is certainly a lot more challenging than it used to be, but I am not in any pain and I still enjoy the love and attention of the Guardians and The Brothers.
The Guardians have made a lot of changes around here for Me, including a fancy new set of stairs that they built and placed next to the bed. Actually, they built a ramp first, but the slope proved pretty challenging for Me. With the stairs, I can take one at a time, and stop to rest if I need to. Actually, I sometimes sleep on them because I like the feel of the carpet.
The Guardians have also placed a litter box, a food bowl and a water bowl in the bedroom, so if I need any of those things in the night, I don’t have far to go.
So as difficult as things are right now, I really am hanging in there, and the Guardians are too. Regardless of My condition, I feel safe and loved, and I still purr often. And I thank you all for your kind words, purrs and continued concern. And I know the Guardians do too.
