It's been a bit of a wistful week. We got the news that Sissy Willis had lost her beloved Tiny. We send our deepest sympathies, and hope that their memories of her bring peace, as our memories of Ivy bring peace to us.
And then, we read that Laurence is feeling Nardo's age, even if Nardo isn't, and reminding us that all wonderful things have a limited time here on earth.
All this on top of Maddie's case of goopy-eye topped with a rotten tooth. We are quite paranoid. We've been giving Maddie the once-over several times a day. Every sniff, sneeze, sigh, quirk are scrutinized to be sure it's not a sign of the impending end. I think our girl is quite fed up with us.
As for us, we'll be glad when Maddie's next senior-kitty check-up happens and Dr G tells us that Maddie is doing good. And we'll revel in every single minute we have with our cat.
