Update on the D

DSCI0037Denver the Wondercat (AKA The D) celebrated his 18th birthday this summer. He was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease almost 2 years ago, and had done well until recently.

Since we returned from our vacation last week, his appetite has been off. He wants to lap the gravy from the food but not actually eat the meat. Grinding it up in a food processor gets a few more calories in him, as does sneaking in some cooking oil, but we all know things are not going well.CrpAngelCat

He still seems comfortable. He wants to lie in the sun and lick my husband’s aftershave. If my daughter comes to the house, he sleeps in her lap. He knows he is loved.

It’s just a matter of time now…
