Teelady1, we tried to keep him comfortable. I worked extremely hard for the last few weeks. He was having trouble making it to the litter boxes for poo, and we were constantly cleaning the floor, his hair, and his bedding. I didn't know how much longer I could keep it up and I was beginning to flare badly. Obviously he was more tired than I, so I just kept going for him.
Pickles appreciates your kitty kisses, and I your hugs.View Thread
We thankfully have two other cats we adopted from my friend's family when she passed away. They were only 1 year old then and are 10 now. There is always that void created by missing the unique personality of each pet, but we do eventually heal enough to accept it. I'm glad you are finding joy with your 2 little dogs. I know you "babysit" for the grand dogs often, which must be fun too.
Today we buried our cat Pickles. He was a friendly, playful, snuggly cat who adopted us about 6 years ago. His last month was difficult for him, and the last couple weeks he needed hospice care from us. Last night he communicated he didn't have any energy left, as we said goodnight to him in his toasty bed. This morning we found he had died in his sleep.
He loved kitty kisses and would give us a double head bump whenever we said "kiss, kiss." So if you would like to send him some kitty kisses, I'm sure he would enjoy them. Thank you all.View Thread
Cynseel1, I'm a side sleeper too, and my shoulders can complain. I've found it best to have a rather firm or overstuffed pillow and to pull it down against my shoulders. That way my head is straighter in line with my spine and raised enough to take weight off the lower shoulder. Make any sense?
Some nights I'm simply better off on my back though. I just can't seem to fall asleep on my back, even though I usually wake up on my back, LOL. Now, if I could just figure out how to take pressure off my hips, knees and feet too...View Thread
