my kitty is back
When I got home from Kuwait a year ago, Max was a different cat from the one I'd left behind nearly eighteen months earlier. He didn't play, he didn't chase Mathilde, and he was hiding from us in the closet under the stairs. It was just the start of a year of vet visits, bandages, e-collars, and antibiotics.

He just chased Mathilde from the kitchen, through the parlor and living room, past my chair and up the stairs. He's been jumping up on chairs and beds, getting pushy about getting his scritches, and he even played with string the other day. We've been giving him wet food once or twice a day, and I swear, darkwolfie was opening the container the other day, and I heard Max meow "right NOW!" (His meows are very expressive.)

My kitty is back. He's been so brave, so good about taking his pills, so good-natured about going to the vet. I don't know how I got so lucky as to have a good boy like him, but I treasure him (even as I bitch at him for getting fresh with his claws). I'm a very lucky girl.

I remember the first time I saw Mulder play after the ordeal he went through when he had surgery for a broken hip. Giving a cat physical therapy can be emotionally gutting.

I'm glad your kitty is back to his old self.

Two things ...

First (and IMO most importantly ...) Thank you for serving. I salute you!

Second -- Yay for kitties!

You're welcome.

I really need a Max icon.
