Last night I brought my kitty Niobe home from the cat hospital.
She was heavily sedated from dental surgery, and could barely walk. She wanted to get back to her usual household routine, but could barely stand, much less walk. Despite the fact that she was literally dragging her legs around, she was her usual sweet self.
I, as you can imagine, was pretty dismayed by all of this. I stayed with her, and tried to comfort her as best I could. (In fact, I fell asleep with all my clothes on, failed to set my alarm clock, and totally overslept.)
Why does this all seem so familiar???
(Niobe is an old girl, and in addition to her bad teeth, she is starting to have kidney troubles. We'll be monitoring this situation. This kitty and I have a deal....I give her all the love in the world, and in exchange, she is going to live to be sixty years old!)
