Worried all day

My cat Joey was so low energy, so slow moving that I was afraid he might not make it through the night. He didn't seem to be in any pain. He just didn't seem to he himself.

He was a bit better in the morning. He's only on Day 3 of his antibiotics, with ten more days to go, so I guess this isn't unexpected. But it worried me. And I was worried about him all day.

Imagine my joy when I got home this evening and the old boy greeted me at the door. His appetite is good, though he doesn't want treats. He is affectionate, though he has a hard time leaping up on the furniture when he wants a cuddle.

As my vet told me, the important thing is that we "knock out" that kidney infection. If the amoxicillin makes him feel a little crappy before it makes him feel better, so be it.

I just wish the path to feeling better was smoother.

Gratitude Challenge -- Day 10

"Every day for 30 days, celebrate what you're grateful for, corresponding to the theme of the day." 

Day #10 -- Quiet

I require alone time. I know this comes as a surprise to people who know me casually, because when I'm out and about in public among the masses I can be a chatterbox. But I need peace and quiet to recharge, to feel refreshed and sharp and ready to face the world.

That's why I'm grateful I live alone.
