Kitty’s in the Hospital

I came out this morning to find Kitty lying on the gravel driveway, crying, probably half frozen, and unable to get up. She’s paralyzed in 3 legs. We took her to the vet, and the vet thinks it is a neurological problem called “vestibular”, or something like that. Apparently she will recover. However, we had to put her in the hospital for 4 days because she needs to be fed and cleaned, since she will soil herself given she can’t stand or walk.

It was a pretty tough morning because I thought we’d have to put her to sleep. She looked terrible, not being able to stand. I do hope she recovers, but I also have to accept she’s over 15 years old and near the end of her life.
