Look who came to visit.......

You will never guess what happened today. My good friend Nellie is on a run away tour and is in the UK at the moment. Nellie went to see Speedy who has just had eye surgery and decided she could fit in a quick visit to see me. I was so pleased and watched out of my window waiting for her.
                                           Here she is now..  Hello Nellie...... I am so happy to see you...
                                          Nellie had a drink of cool cat milk to refresh after her journey and nibbled on some prawns and fresh salmon. We the walked in my yard and I showed her my lovely flowers..  We sat and just chatted about all our friends and before we knew it was time for Nellie to be on her way. We had so enjoyed the visit..  Safe journey Nellie... Come back soon...
                          You can read all about Nellie's journey Here Pop over and see it all..

   My vet visit for today..The vet checked me over and listened to what mum had to say. The diagnosis is definitely dementia and when mum asked was I in pain he said in his opinion  no I wasn't at all it was just the dementia that was making me yell out. The medicine is helping somewhat and I am using the new litter tray near the door and ignoring all the other one's. Mum and dad discussed the options with the vet and they said so long as I was happy and so long I had quality of life  and no pain then they would keep on with what we are doing with the meds and just let me plod on and enjoy life  as I want. Quality of life is the utmost important thing.

             Love and hugs to everyone.. GJ xx

GJ, getting old is a challenge, isn't it? The WDA understands. Being a bit forgetful and losing your place doesn't that life isn't still worth living and enjoying. Let us reassure mum and dad that you still have LOTS of love left to give. There is no pain just some confusion and with their caring support you can still be happy. They will know when that changes.

Sounds like a good report, GJ. Angel Princess and Angel Kitty Wink both yelled out like that, but eventually Mommy finally found things (her robe, extra nighlights) that helped. Good luck! XOXO

Poppy Q said...

We think you have a very sensible vet GJ. My vet said mum would know when her girl Puss had had enough, and Puss became very sad and unhappy at the end. The vet was right, mum knew when it was time.

So we hope you get to enjoy lots of time together.

You know, GJ, getting older comes with its privileges, so what's a little dementia between friends? Keep being happy, Dear Friend.

Glad you got a visit from Nellie!

Purrs,

How fun to have a visitor! I am so very happy to hear that you are not in pain, and you are happy. Aging sure does change things, but without suffering it is just more lessons - life take it easy, be in the moment and accept all the love you can.

I wish things could be better for you, Ginger Jasper, but at least there is no pain. You still know your mum and dad, and know that they love you. keep using the litter-pan, and try to be your old self, you wonderful cat.

Kitties Blue said...

G.J, we are so sorry about the dementia. Since you are not in pain, we know it is harder on your mum and dad than it is on you. Hope you can maintain your health otherwise, so that you can continue to do things you enjoy such as having friends like Nellie come for a visit.

Howdy Ginger Jasper, glad to hear you're taking things easy mate. Enjoy that sunshine. A friend once said, getting old ain't for the faint hearted, and they were right. You do what pleases you GJ and enjoy all those cuddles from your mum and dad. We're sending over some hugs to share around too! Take care oh fluffy friend. You're in our hearts. No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory

Little GJ we are very happy to learn that you have no pain. It's ok for older kitties to get a bit confused and we hope the medication really helps you with that and you continue to enjoy life to the full. How nice that Nellie visited you

We are glad to hear this report, Sweet GJ! It's okay--we all get a little wacky as we age. I know the Human certainly does some peculiar things! We are glad you are not feeling pain--that is good to hear. I am sure Nellie's visit made you feel happy--she came to see me too ;-) We are purring and purraying for you, Sweet Boy! XOXOXO

WE are glad you are feeling okay GJ. Our cat Megat sometimes forgets where he wants to go also and sometimes he sings loudly in the middle of the bedroom.Quality of life is always the best thing.

The first Funny Farmer we lost was Jenny and she had dementia, so we thought that might be what you have. We hope you continue to have quality of life for a long time.

The Florida Furkids said...

We think it was super nice of nellie to visit you.

Mom's Eskie dog Katie had dementia but, other than some accidents, she seemed happy. We hope that you continue to do well with the meds and enjoy life for a long time.

Kari said...

We all grow older, sweet Jasper. It's a part of living.
We just do our best and go on. Our gran cries out at night, can't use the human litter box, and is infirm in other ways. But she seems happy and we are happy for each day. You are always in our prayers, previous one. We love you so much.
