Sassy sleeping

 

Sassy, who will be 16 shortly, now spends about 23 hours out of every 24 sleeping.  With arthritic back legs, he doesn't scamper about much!

Poor little guy with his legs given out... sad
Tom Wilson: He still manages to get around - hobbling smile
Awe - but you've made sure he's comfortable in his retirement.
Tom Wilson: Oh, indeed - and he is on medication to keep any pain from the arthritis down. He costs more to keep him healthy than it costs for me! No NHS for cats smile
Other than that, Tom, I'm sure he's a happy old guy.
Tom Wilson: Oh, yes - he's OK

Qu'il est beau. Il a un coussin bien confortable.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.
i suppose in his sleep (and dreams), he does not feel any or much discomfort, Tom.
Tom Wilson: No - and he's on medication to keep down any pain from the arthritis.

I am sure he is very happy Tom. Cats do tend to sleep rather a lot..
Tom Wilson: Hard to tell with animals, but he's very affectionate and doesn't seem to be in pain.
He seems to be eating well. Bet he still has dreams of being young.
Tom Wilson: Oh, yes - always ready for his meals smile Although, he had some kind of bite recently that meant a visit to the vet and he was off his food for a few days - we always know something is wrong when that happens!

A fine image, Tom.

16 is a quite good age for a cat...
Tom Wilson: Some time back one of the vets said that the oldest cat they knew of that used the practice was 23 years old!
