Our cats are aging, just like us, but they are closer to their end.
Petzel has kidney disease and is extremely arthritic, but he stays very active for his 16 year old deteriorating body. I think dementia is also setting in as he sits around yelling at the air. He eats, drinks, sleeps, and is more accepting of affection. He looks like a mess all the time, even after he gets his special cat wipe bath. Selfishly I wish he would gain weight and clean himself up.
I cannot tell if he is unhappy, and if I knew, what would I do.
The abstract colorful paintings, painted and/or cut-out fabrics, and beach trash clowns part of Collection Applied Design a Kim MacConnel Retrospective, at MCASD La Jolla, I found full of joy and delight.
It was like taking in an abundance of candy without the sugar and fat which makes me sick.
