Glad to hear that taxy, for both of your sake.

I'm glad Shreddy is getting some relief, Taxy, and that you are getting some quality memories out of this time. When I read about him not being able to jump like he used to, I was experiencing our almost one-year-old Monkey freely jumping and running all over the place, mostly over and under our 10-year-old arthritic pooch, Violet.

Hugs to you, Stirling and Shreddy.

That's good. Shreddy appears to have a bit of zest left!

Tax------- can you build a ramp or pile several flat cushions on the floor so Shreddy can get to the hammock easily?

I was tired and didn't finish my train of thought. As I watched Monkey and Violet while reading about Shreddy, it made me think about the circle of life. It effects us all. I am so glad Shreddy is having some enjoyment in his yard crawls and is adapting to his changing abilities.

What's great is that Shreddy keeps trying stuff. So glad his meds are working for him!

He isn't really having trouble getting into the hammock. That thing he did last night, I think was just to prove to himself that he could.

But, I like your idea. I have put a step stool next to the hammock. He doesn't seem to mind stairs. I'll see if he uses it.

You're taking care of Shreddy in a very loving way. Much karma is surely deposited in your Karma Bank.

Some people don't even treat their aging parents that good.

Here's a photo of Shreddy sleeping in his hammock. You can see the green step stool. The small table is several inches lower than the top of the hammock. It's where my herbs lived in winter. The table should make it even easier for Shreddy to get into the hammock.

So cute! Shreddy looks like a furry little mouse curled up in a next. Oh, don't tell Shreddy I said he looked like the enemy!
