Well, this is really fall, isn't it. Today is breezy, chilly and rainy, and I just want to stay indoors. Not enough sleep last night due to worrying about my old kitty; so, all in all, today is a down day, I guess.
The old kitty seems somewhat better today. He has a cyst on the side of his neck that has occasionally been seeping or bleeding a little, which it was yesterday. It bothers him sometimes, I know. His body language is telling me that he wants me to do something about it. He's about 17 years old, and sometimes he moans or groans in his sleep. He has thyroid hyperactivity, and has been on a thyroid blocker for just about 2 years now. However, he's been losing weight again lately, so I think his dose needs to be increased. The thing is that he's been my close companion for over 16 years (which is a year longer than I was married), and we have our little routines. He's been with me through several job changes and moves; and I dread the thought of having to put him down, which I will have to do if the expense becomes too much or if he's suffering.
As I stated, it's a down day today, I guess.
