No blog post Monday

I won't be blogging tomorrow. My cat (19 years old with an overactive thyroid) has gone downhill very quickly today. Took him to the vet yesterday about something else, they said it's not good and he might have cancer or a tumour in his gut. He perked up after the steroid injection, but this morning he wasn't himself. Isn't himself now. At least he's eaten something.

I've got to take him tomorrow - going to phone in the morning to see when they'll do it in the afternoon. My family are away, but they know about it. Got a neighbour taking me. Hopefully reviews will resume Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest. Had him since he was a kitten. He's had a wonderful life, and is a character in two of my wips. It's the right time to let him go.

Oh my goodness :( I am sooooo sorry to hear that! I love my cats like they're children, so I can understand how hard this must be. I hope you don't mind if I say a wee prayer for him.

Thank you. They become part of the family. I'm happy because he won't be suffering any more (it can't be nice, being sick every day. I think having to wait to do it is the hardest thing.

Thanks Lenore. That's why I like seeing pics of your cats. Turns out I really adore them!
