I woke up to the lovely sound of Oreo chomping on his dry cat food. He didn’t have the energy to do that for days now. He barely had the energy to eat the canned moist food. How about that?
But then he was unable to jump from the chair to the bed as he did even last night. I felt sad again.
Ah, but when I gave him canned food he gave me his sign asking for more and I gave him more and he ate more.Then he came into my room and jumped up on the bed.
He is walking around pretty normally now so his strength seems to be returning. Now he is grooming himself–hasn’t done that since Sunday.
The only thing Oreo is not doing is talking to me. He is usually talkative despite being deaf.
I am not jumping to any conclusions. I know lots of you are sending endless love, Light and prayers for both of us. Words cannot tell you how much I appreciate your love.
I set Oreo up wth all the energy products in my house so he spends the day sleeping (mostly) right next to me as I work. I do watch him all day long to see that he is still breathing.
(Any other moms out there who spent every night waking up to see if their infants were still breathing? Did the same thing when my mom was transitioning and lived with us. I didn’t sleep all those months. I was so afraid she would need me during the night or she might fall down the stairs in the dark. Do all Moms do that even for their parents?
Oreo really is acting normal. Tell you what, I think I cried so much on Monday there is nothing left inside. Felt like making up for a lifetime of not being able to cry.Thanks for all your love that allowed me to release all those stuffed up feelings. My own well being needed that release.
I will continue to love my little boy. How old is a 20 year old cat in cat years? I keep telling Oreo he has the choice to stay or leave and I implore him not hang around for my sake.
Anyone know a good animal whisperer? I worked with a few. Some are great but many aren’t. I sure would like to know what Oreo needs and wants.
Thank you for loving us and caring enough to spend time and effort sending love, Light, energy and prayers. This whole episode is like re-living caring for my Mom. It brought us so close and I learned so much about life, living, the Soul and immortality.
Gee, my posts about that got lost when I switched hosting companies. I need to re-write it so those of you caring for parents can gain some insight from my growth experience.
I love you. Thanks for caring enough to read this. Leave a comment so I know you were here. I stopped mind reading many years ago. 🙂
