oh god...maude is just not doing well mentally right now...dementia or brain tumour?...she is freaking out and darting around like she sees dead people or something, her balance is off and her back end is weak...i don't think it is dementia, why does she have to be so freaking old?!...ask why i don't send her in for a ct scan to look for a tumour?...cuz rule number one in extreme senior and palliative care is you do not stress them out looking for something that you cannot fix anyway....if you cannot treat the cause, then you hope to treat the symptoms.
sunrise's euth is booked for 11:45 tomorrow morning at the clinic, we just couldn't arrange a home visit cuz the vets are all booked too solid. please don't be too scared little buddy, you are such a sweet, sweet cat.
so tonight i officially adopted maude and frodo AND i adopted dixie-chick too. i know she hates my guts and has for her entire 5 yrs of life with me but no one but me is ever really going to love her so i think i am better than nothing at all.(AND i already apologized for live trapping you twice and using a catch pole the last time we moved house and home so get over it, it got you here safe and sound really quickly to your beloved ogidie instead of waiting a week for you to get into a trap again!) besides we do have a few things in common...we both did adore ogidie, we both loved our amazingly special hook, we both miss truly gentle julie alot. AND we like the same bed too...so there you go, some common ground to build our family on...it is ok dix, you can still keep hating me even if i am now your family, it happens in families sometimes.
