Nick Survives

I hadn't posted since I returned home in July. Nick was so thin and barely moved around. I hugged him, loved on him, talked to him, and of course, fed him some of his favorite foods. He loves avocados so he got a little taste when I had some salad fixings. I also broke down and gave him a teaspoon or so of canned cat food 2 times a day to try and fatten him up. After a couple weeks he seems to have gained back all the weight he lost, and he is running around the house playing with Cooper like he used to. I just returned from another few days away and I guess he didn't think I disappeared this time. He is doing fine, just old. He needs to hang on for a while, he will be 18 next March, and I am just not ready for him to go.

Oh good! What a relief! We need good ol' Nick! He's such a sweetie.

I'm so happy to hear he's still with us. I had wondered about him. You just can't replace a mother's love, much as I'm sure Holiday tried!

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I had a great day, all things considered!

Nick survives, but the husband is barely holding on. Dig a big hole.
