Hi friends. So mum has postponed my appointment. She is in turmoil and knows that the end is close. It's just that when she came hime from work last night I was outside waiting for her as usual and meowing hello. I wanted a fancy feast and ate 3/4. I then jumped up on the bed and wanted cuddles before I got annoyed.
Mum slept poorly but as the sun rose, I got up and talked to her and had some food and drink, and have settled in for another nap.
With 2 hours before my due final appointment mum has postponed my euthanasia at the vets. She knows that this is probably a small rally, and we are only delaying the end but mums heart is not ready while I am so settled.
Sorry to bring you on the emotional rollercoaster.

Mum says I have been a good girl and not being scared of our niece, even coming up and smelling her stinky socks. Mum and miss Belle got up early and went to the shops, only stopping for sushi and being out 10am-4pm. They came home for a break, then went out for some non alcoholic cocktails and tasty dinner. Then there was kiddie ice cream cones for the walk home. Jyst a few 15,500 steps today. Mum should slerp well tonight!

Well it's been a week since that vet visit and I'm still hanging in there. Still eating and drinking and leaving little presents in the shower for mum to find. Mum is giving me love, singing and talking to me and whispering in my ear that all of my friends love me so much. Thank you friends - we love you too!!

I'm still keeping on. The vet called on Monday afternoon to check up on us which was nice. Mum only cried once on the phone, poor vet, but they must be used to that. Mum told her that I was stable and still wanting scritches and earning and drinking. I wanted a fancy feast for breakfast and for dinner. At first I didn't eat much of it, but went back for a few nibbles snd ate about half, which us pretty standard for me at the best of times.
Thank you friends for reaching out, we appreciate your kind soft words and surrounding us with your love xoxo.

Another quiet day at the house of Q. I'm still here and it has been ok today. I've slept a lot, but come out to the garden a couple of times. Mum has watched me eat and drink and now I'm curled up in the shopping bag snuggled with my head on Mr fish. Mum caught me purring there which has made her heart happy. These days are hard for her and she is trying to not cry too much. She's scared she'll never stop. Xoxo.

Mum had to work this evening, and was pleased that when she came home I got up to greet her. I got my fancy feast and licked up all the gravy and took a few nice drinks of water before taking a nap. That all makes mums heart feel better. Mine too. Kisses to everyone.

Mums made me happy and let me have a shopping bag on the bed tonight, so I've curled up to rest and am purring beside her. I've had my dinner, some water and been out to the bathroom. She's brushed my furs and talked to me and cried lots of tears. Thank you all for all of your kind words and love. We know so many of our friends have already made these journeys with their own friends. We appreciate your warmth and love.

So this one is hard for mum to write. Today mum took me to the vet, as I've been having a few twitchy movements. Just occasionally and mum wanted me checked out. We had a lovely vet, who was kind and gentle. Friends I've lost a lot more weight and condition. She did ask if they could take a blood test, but mum doesn't want me to undergo any more invasive tests. She knew this time was coming, but I'm not ready for the bridge yet.
I'm eating and drinking and still running out to greet mum at the door when she gets home. I'm still jumping on my mums bed and asking for scrtiches or a quick snuggle.
This was me when I got home from the vet, warming up by the heater after I asked for my fancy feast and had a big drink.
So mum is going to love me each day and give me lots of snuggles.

While I rested mum got up and had a shower and ate her breakfast. She got her two bags if donations, caught an uber and dropped them off at the cancer charity shop. She got her favorite sushi, had a quick walk round town then caught a bus home. I was still in the same spot.
Now lunch for mum, and a few more jobs before she heads to work.

I helped mum again today with sorting through more things to go to the charity shop. She detangled lots of necklaces, ones she had not worn in years and put them in little bags. It seems that 10 years ago, every outfit needed a dangly necklace to accompany it, and now fashion has changed. She is glad, as she no longer gets bad knots in the back of her hair. She's got a lot that she needs to drop off at the hospice charity shop.

On mums way home she saw this little kitty sitting under this fallen branch. Mum stopped and asked if it was ok, or stuck and needed help. It meowed and climbed out, and rolled around mums legs then showed her how it got back undrr the branch. It was just playing!!

Mum had a restless sleep last night. I was up bugging her about something she couldn't figure out, and she had to get up go the bathroom lots. So many times she figured she must of had some sort of bladder issue. She intended to ho go the after hours doctors, but by mid morning after a shower and lots of water she felt better. Today was lots of naps for both us girls, and tonight we hope to sleep better.
Winter weather has now arrived, with it being 7deg C most of the day and now hailing outside. Our heater has been on all day, the first cold day of the year for us.

Mum did go to bed at 10.30pm last night. She tried to read, but after 2 paragraphs she had to give up. She had an early start, but hadn't expected to wake up at 4.30am, tume for tiktoks
So it was dark as she walked to work, but these white flowers were glowing, as they darted around in the wind.
Tomorrow is s holiday, so mum is looking forward to doing some pottering about and chatting to me!!

Mum forgot the annual art show was on this weekend until she got an email at 8am. She breakfasted and got herself down there for a quick wander and although she liked a couple, most were very pricey. This cat was more magnificent than the photos show and was $5000.
So she spent the afternoon at the cinema seeing the Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, which was a bit dull and slow, 2.5/5. Then curly fries and a lemon lime and bitters, and a long slow bus trip home.
I was glad when mum returned and enjoyed my feast. Now the heater is on - its a chilly 8deg C here tonight!

Mums night shifts are over, and she was glad when 7am rolled around this morning. Rather than tumble into bed, as the day was sunny and a warm 17 degrees outside, she put the bedding into the wash and popped it on the line. Her eyes started closing after having her breakfast, so she admitted defeat and had to nao for a couple of hours.
As the afternoon felt like spring, even though winter is just starting mum went off to return some parcels and library books and pick up groceries.
After dinner, mum decided to put her new winter quilt and blanket on the bed. As soon as it was on, I jumped up and rolled around on it and went straight to sleep. Mum thinks I love it already! Just when she wants to go to bed!
