Our beloved Calico is 20 yrs old. She has outlived her 2 children. I called the dr and he said to make her as comfortable as possible. That said, she has a bit of spunk left and when she wants pets she wants them NOW and is prone to nipping a hand to comply with her demands. She is the only cat I've had who actually 'talked' back when I talked to her. She always answers when I call her name.
I have spoken with his doc as well and he says, some dogs just don't have enough brain power to know their limitations....lol. Doc loves Mr. Bettis. Actually the ENTIRE vet office believes he's the bomb! Maybe they could take him for a week ;)
In a role reversal my doc called me and the doctor said...more stuff. I don't discuss my medical issues with anyone these days but felt that statement fits the post ;).
