Vic

And now I'm up to date with cat photos, some bad news about Vic.

He's been off his food for the last few weeks and lost some weight, so we took him to the vet and they did tests on him. The vet was the one who first saw him when we found him and now he's saying he may have got his estimate wrong and Vic's older than he thought. Anyway, he's got kidney failure like Claudia had, but it can strike some cats younger, and Vic did have a bad start in life as a stray. The vet said he can still have a couple of good years (Claudia had three) on kidney diet food, but he's still not eating much and therefore not taking much of the antibiotic pills we're crushing into his food though he had an injection that was meant to stimulate his appetite.

If he doesn't start eating soon, he's just going to keep going downhill, making him the third cat we've lost in three years. Already his coat's losing its gloss and he's not moving round as much and preferring to stay outside when he used to come in for cuddles and to sleep on the bed. It really does look like Claudia in her last few days. but I suppose the good side is that it's been a sudden decline for him; he's been very healthy and active up till recently. He had a bad start as I said, but since then he's had an excellent life.
