Lots has changed since the last time I wrote. Mom and I moved into a new apartment, so I've had to adapt my daily rituals to a new place. I used to spend a lot of my day snoozing under the blanket on the couch, but now I spend all of my time on the bed. It's by two windows, so I can sunbathe and look at all the goings-on outside. It's a pretty sweet set up I have there.
Ugh, the other change is that I lost a bunch of weight again. I hate when I do that! I don't do it on purpose though. It ends up that my kidneys aren't working as hard as they used to, so get this, I get iv fluids once a day. It's like I'm a patient and Mom is my nurse. But luckily I don't have to go to the hospital to get it. I was pretty grumpy about it at first because the needle kind of hurt. But Mom asked the vet for thinner needles and it's been going better. Getting fluids isn't my favorite thing in the world to do, but it's only for a few minutes a day and Mom brushes me to make it nicer for me.
Getting older is a pain, but I still enjoy my kitty cat life and since Mom takes such good care of me, I hope to have many more happy days ahead.
Purrs and trills,
Katie, you are a very beautiful kitty and look younger than your age. So sorry you have kidney disease but your mommy is an excellent nurse and is taking good care of you. Enjoy the view and sunshine from the window in your new apartment.
