Hoping that Solo will Regain Mobility, Final Farewell to Archie & A Day of Drizzle in September at the Lazy Vegan
It has been a rough week at the Lazy Vegan. Solo can no longer bring himself to a standing position. He can walk, but he has to be put in an upright position first to do so. This means when I leave the house and put him in his little bed, he'll be in the same spot when I return. He'll bark when he wants to get up, but we have to figure out what he needs - a walk or water. Plus, he had been getting up at 3 a.m. or earlier to bark...so it has been an exhausting week! A trip to the vet brought him some relief with painkillers, but so far there's been no change in his mobility. It is so sad, because he's totally alert and his appetite is good again...his body is just fading before his brain! I'm still hoping that the painkillers will help bring some mobility back. Otherwise, I'm having conversations with him about making the big transition. And in other Lazy Vegan news, the feline drama has come to an end and Archie is definitely moving with the neighbors and leaves in a few days. As sad as I am about this, I think it is for the best. I hope he stays safe and sound in his new neighborhood! Some day another cat will come into our lives, I'm sure...as I know from volunteering at the Humane Society, there are no shortage of cats up for adoption!
Today is dark and gray, which seems an appropriate color to remember 9/11...hard to believe a decade has passed...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY THIS PAST WEEK TO GRANDMA DEBBIE!!!
