We have been on pins and needles here for the last week. Our old girl cat is about to leave us. She is 22 and has intestinal cancer and began to noticeably fade about 2 weeks ago. She now will only take water. She would drink a little milk up to a couple of days ago but no more. Now she is just marking time. One thing that I do find interesting is our new boy cat is spending a lot of time with her, just being around her as if to comfort her. They never got along when she was well but now she tolerates him. Interesting.
