I Miss You

Thank you for all of your kind comments and sweet wishes for Frodo.  We stopped by the Vet’s yesterday to get an update.  He still isn’t using the restroom but they give him about a 75% chance of regaining those abilities.  So today they will show us how to “express” a cat (manually help empty his bladder) and send him home with stool softeners.  We’re thrilled he’s coming home, although the thought of a cat on a laxative in a house on the market is not a pretty one. :P

We got to see Frodo yesterday and got lots of happy purrs and cuddles in.  The entire staff remarked what a sweet and friendly cat he is and how much they’ve enjoyed him.  (Of course, for what we’re paying this week, they’d BETTER say that. ;)

In the meantime, I’m still juggling painters and cleaners and roof inspectors and garage door-fixers and handymen and carpet ladies and hobos and realtors.  The house is supposed to go on the market at the end of the day.  I don’t see that happening.  But it’s still early…

I miss the days of catnapping with my cat.  And drinking fresh coffee.  And browsing your blogs.

Now I gotta run!

Our cat was recently sick (crystals in his urine) and we needed to watch his catbox to make sure he 'went'. Since we have another cat, we needed to separate him. We have an ex-pen that we set up. Clothspinned a sheet on top so he couldn't jump out and put his food, bed and catbox in there. If you are afraid of a big mess, you could try that with your poor kitty.

I hope all goes well with Frodo and the house. Hang in there!

So happy to hear Frodo will be okay. Good luck with the house selling. I bet it goes fast, it looks really nice. Your pictures made me miss the prairie.

Glad to hear that Frodo's chances of recovery are good. Can you keep him contained to one room?
Years and years ago, our cat was hit by a car and we paid a gazillion dollars for the vet to basically reconstruct her entire jaw. We then fed her from a tube in her neck for 6 months. Love knows no bounds.
She lived a very happy 8 years more.
She was an amazing cat, so friendly and loving. She talked to you as well.
