It is true love when you feed your cat his wet food with your bare hands because that’s the only way he’ll eat it. Sigh. He’s not feeling too well again today, not eating or drinking as much as we’d like. It’s probably back to the vet tomorrow. We were hoping that he’d be strong enough for his bladder stone surgery on Thursday, but he won’t be if he keeps eating like this…… Of course, the reason he’s not eating or drinking is that to get rid of such things HURTS. He’s always in the box, swaying quietly and stubbornly as nothing happens. My poor boy.
And me, I’m off to work today, working for a friend on my day off. I’d much rather be at home, with him, making him eat against all his better instincts. (I hold it right under his nose, and it’s as if he licks the food against his will. Pretty cute, actually.)
