Good Days Bad Days
Rascal's mom here. We haven't thought about cat blogging much, but I wanted to give you all an update on Rascal. Here's still with us, having his good days and his bad ones.
On the good days he wants to go out and make his rounds. He knows where the mice and chipmunks hang out, so he can usually be found there.
He knows where the safe and comfy catnap spots are.
And he's ever faithful to accompany me when I go out to the garden, and keep me company while I do various gardening chores.
On bad days he doesn't want to go out, doesn't want to eat, doesn't want to be bothered. On days like that we debate whether or not to take him to see Dr. C. We know that in all likelihood, if we take him, he probably won't come home again. It's hard to be brave enough to face that. His annual check-up is in August and hopefully he can make it for that.
Sometimes we wonder how he keeps going. He's all skin and bones and pretty fussy about food. But as long as his good days outweigh his bad, we'll hang in there with him. We hope that when his time comes, he'll peacefully fall asleep and never wake up. If he does need help to cross the Rainbow Bridge, we just hope we'll know when he's ready.
