A few weeks ago, I wrote about my aging cats, in Living with Elder Cats, prompted by Lucy being ill for a few days. This weekend, Lucy demonstrated further recovery. Coming into the house after a trip to the pet store, the bag of very expensive prescription cat food ripped open, spilling onto the floor in a rapidly growing stream. These bags used to be of heavy material, with a good velcro closure, as befits their contents. There’s been a downgrade in the packaging, without a downgrade in price, but that’s a story for another day.
At any rate, I was able to sweep up the mess and salvage most of the food. Lucy joined this operation, scouting out scattered morsels and gobbling them up, clearly enjoying the hunt. She hasn’t done this in years, and it was really fun to see her active and engaged with the world. Life in the old cat yet!
