I'm sitting up with Beau tonight and I wondered if anyone had replied to my post and here you all are giving so much. Its so comforting to know others remember all Beau's little stories and funny little ways. Remember the Great Piddle that lasted 18 months and nothing worked? How the compounded valium that we rubbed on his ears just made his ears moldy but still didn't stop him piddling on the floor until I chanced upon a high sided litter tray and he took to it like a duck to water and no more piddles.
Anyway, tonight he is behaving very restlessly. He recoils at touch but can sit on my lap for brief periods but I can't touch him except to hold his paw for a little while. He is staring intently out the window even though it's pitch dark outside. He is barely interested in eating. He is afraid of the TV screen. I think his now untreated hypertension has caused some kind of neurological problem. Poor baby. I wish he could just curl up in my arms and rest. So I'll phone the vet first thing tomorrow, take the day off work and have my Beau put to sleep. I cant stand the thought of not having that little white fluffy warm special creature in my life.
Joy, I'm so very sorry to hear of Elmo's passing. It's so recent and must be so raw. It hurts so much. Please imagine I'm giving you a big hug.
I'll let you know when Beau has passed and I promise I will post a photo in the next few days. xx
