Update on Stella

She’s been recovering well (yay!) and so far seems to be doing better. I’ve been feeding her on my desk. She seems to eat more when I’m nearby than when I’m not.

Our checkup with the regular vet went well. She was pleased that Stella’s test results showed similar numbers to last December’s blood work. The kidney disease hasn’t progressed very much.

She played like a kitten today — I have the cuts on my hand to prove it. Feisty little girl. Twenty going on three.

She is showing her age: her hip muscles are almost non-existent because of arthritis and kidney problems that cause the kidneys to eat up any available protein source (like muscles). She seems happy and is not in pain.

It’s hard when you suddenly realize that the kitty who was with you through college is suddenly getting older. Every day with her is suddenly more special.
