My Dear Tommy Cat

Tommy the cat was very unhappy this morning and had to go to the doctor. Acted like his jaw was sore. At his age (18 last month!), I do tend to worry.

The vet says he's dehydrated, which is pretty typical for him, poor guy. They have him on IV fluids and said he was doing fine as of this eveing; waiting on blood work befpre proceeding. No obvious dental issues other than some exposed root (gingivitis), which would be enough to cause touch-sensitivity.

Here's hoping for the best. It's just me and The Slinker for now. She's wondering where her Daddy is.

Tommy's slept in my bed for nearly every night of his life. I'll miss him tonight.
