When to let go is really a decision that can only be made between you and Amos. You know him better than anyone, so you can best tell when he's uncomfortable. I do believe that our kitties have ways to let us know when they're ready, and it's all we can do to listen to what they're telling us and try not to second guess ourselves.

I do think that Amos would benefit from losing some weight to reduce the stress on his joints. A lot of kitties will lose weight when put on a diet of all wet food. Since older kitties often have declining kidney function, a wet diet has the added bonus of helping them stay hydrated.

The hunger and yowling can be symptoms of issues like diabetes or hyperthyroidism. I'm glad that Amos will be getting his blood work done soon. I find it surprising that the vet still has him on an annual check up, though. By the time the cats in our family reached 14 or 15, our vets always wanted updated blood work every six months.

I sent you an invitation to join a Catster group called "Olde Furts." It's a great resource for older kitties.

Sending purrs for sweet Amos! Please keep us posted. hug

Nope, no tree. Gramma used to have a little one she's put on the table, but we haven't had one since we lived with her. shrug

What's your tree like? Do you climb your it? Does it taste good? applause
