Ups and Downs

This month we've lost two friends/former co-workers and my mother has been in and out of the hospital. Her mental processes remain fuzzy although her physical wellbeing is much better.

On the plus side, we've met with a pair of realtors who seem anxious to work with us on getting Denny's dad's house sold and we're reaching the halfway mark on getting the rooms painted upstairs. The decision to install Pergo on the kitchen floor means more work for Denny but in a way it would be a change of pace from all the painting he has been doing so he doesn't mind it too much.

Patches is being a bit of a problem: three times this month she's opened a window and jumped out, once staying out all night. She has also developed litter box issues and Denny's patience with that is running short. Hopefully I can get that worked out before I have to give up the cat, but it's just not something I have a lot of time to deal with while we're working on the house (which may be part of the problem).

I think we'll be glad to be done with the month of August.

She's probably missing your nightly walks, and perhaps your company.

Like you, she's itching to get back on the road.

I'm sorry for your losses. :(

Have you had Patches at the vet lately? My daughter's cat (also named Patches) stopped using the litter box. Turns out she'd developed crystals in her bladder, caused by something in the dry cat food. Vet put her on antibiotics and had me switch her food. She got back to the litter box by the second day.

Good luck to Denny with the floor. :)

no_news is quite right. A bladder infection or crystals can cause litter box issues. I hope the problem has an easy fix. And I also understand how you just don't need any more concerns right now.
