I know the feeling, TL. My old sweetie has trouble walking around. She has a basket with a blanket she likes but when I'm sitting down, I bring her to the couch and we snuggle.

TL and GG, how old are your kitties? We have one kitty that is 21 and so far he's still pretty spry. He's deaf as a post though.

Shreddy is 18 y.o. He doesn't look old, but he can't jump like he used to and his balance isn't as good any more. He also sleeps a lot, even more than before.

A friend of mine has a 19 y.o. female cat. She is going deaf, so she meows louder.

Elwing is 18 also. She's very talkative, which makes her a lot of fun DH likes to have conversations with her, although he admits he sometimes doesn't get what she's saying

She does have arthritis, though, so I can't let her sleep in the bed with us anymore because she might jump off and hurt herself. It's hard to believe she's been with us almost 20 years. That's 2/3 of our marriage.

Louie meows VERY loudly! Poor guy. I've inadvertently snuck up on him and scared him.

Have you tried the Metacam Feline for your arthritic kitty? Worked absolute wonders for ours.

What is the Metacam Feline? I'm not familiar with that.

Our previous elderly kitty developed a form of dementia. She would cry loudly and seemed to be lost. Elwing isn't doing that, thank goodness.

Metacam is a painkiller for animals. Works REALLY well.

Good morning. 5:25AM here, woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. Having a cup of hot tea, wrapped in blankets, and searching for a movie. Have a great day, everyone.

Good day everyone.


Running into some turkey day kinks but I will survive!

Cold here today. The brass monkey is inside and our witch is wearing her insulated bra.

'Bout 20F and windy, which makes it feel much, um, brisker. It's sunny though and clear. Better than the last couple of days.

Up early today to finalize Thanksgiving prep, then lazy for the rest of the day. This cold weather makes "arthur" more apparent so I tend to take it easier.

Have a great day, everyone!
