It's all about the Caffeine & Kitty Treats

Johnny Today – 01/29/20

My nerves are totally on end.  Any positivity I had is drained out of me completely.  I’ve spend the last 2 days cleaning up after Johnny because he has stopped using the litter boxes entirely.  I spoke to a veterinarian that I met online last night.  He says that it sounds like Johnny is suffering from feline dementia.  He’s nowhere near his usually cuddling self.  I already miss that more than anything else.  Sometimes it seems like he doesn’t want to be touched at all.

Last night I woke up to Johnny crying in the back bedroom.  I went back to check and see if he was okay.  He apparently tried to jump up on the bed and he couldn’t make it.  I have a round pillow that is about 3 feet long and there is a permanent dent in it from where he always lays.  I put him up on the pillow and he quieted down.  I looked close at his bed in the dining room.  Sometime during the day, Johnny urinated on the bed and he was sleeping on it.  I felt so bad for him when I found that.  He also urinated in Misty’s bed which was right next to his as always.

Last night when I brushed him, I had his fur coming out in clumps.  I brush him twice a day and he usually enjoys being brushed.  He usually turns for me when I brush him, and he stands perfectly still for me.  Last night I had to hold him in place while I brushed him.

I made the decision to have him put down because I can’t stand to see him suffer anymore.  I will do what needs to be done for his comfort.  It’s all I can do for him now.

My name is Chris Blackwood, and I'm coming to you live from the deep freeze up in northern Minnesota. These are the sporadic musings, ramblings, and rants of a middle aged man who isn't exactly thrilled with the direction America is taking today. I'm extremely opinionated where news and politics are concerned. I call it like I see it and I don't mince any words.

Life is too short to stay quiet.
