My wife works from home most days but sometimes she does what she calls a “site visit.” It is when she spends the day at one of her properties to make sure everything is being done correctly and to help out. She did a site visit at the property here in town the other day and asked me to drive her so I could have the truck if I needed to go anywhere.
While she was gone Frankie and Floki were enjoying the beautiful day on the catio while Chris was upstairs on the bed. I felt bad that he was missing out and since he has been having trouble going up and down the stairs I carried him down.
When Rose was ready to be picked up I didn’t want to leave with the cats out on the catio so I brought them in. When we got home Rose pointed out that Frankie was watching us from the window upstairs .
When we got inside we saw Frankie and Floki but no Chris. I went upstairs and found Chris on the perch looking out the window. So it was Chris and not Frankie up there.
I have still carried Chris up and down since then but he has also surprised me several times but going up and down on his own. My wife decided to watch one of her girly shows Friday evening so I left Chris on the sofa with Rose and came upstairs to write this post. A few minutes later Chris joined me on the bed.
I did receive the joint support Chews the other day but he was already improving before then. I did have my doubts about his problem being arthritis because of the suddenness of it and now I think maybe he injured his paw.
Of course it could be a little of both. With his old age and added weight jumping down could be hard on him. I don’t know. I’m just glad he is a little better.
Like with humans arthritis for our “kids” comes and goes…..the supplements keep things “even” so you may want to consider just giving him one every other day. They hide things so well it’s always a little difficult to know FOR SURE if they hurt. Nice to know he WAS able to go up and down the stairs though!
It might come and go like you say. Possibly because of the temperature or humidity.
I am glad Chris is doing better. How funny that he didn’t want to watch a girlie show.
I don’t blame him. 🙂
I’m glad Chris is doing better! My human wants to know what constitutes a girly show! MOL
I think it’s called Anne of Green Gabels.
Like you say, it is probably a combination of things – that’s what getting older is like. Glad he is better !
Thanks. It’s a relief.
I would still start Chris on the chews. It certainly won’t hurt him.
How nice that Chris is tackling the steps by himself, but he probably enjoys being carried some too!
I’m sure he does. 🙂
Oh my word, Chris looks like Michael Myers from Halloween! 🤣🤣🤣
He has had that weird look since having eight teeth removed 2 or 3 years ago.
Haha, I meant the pose rather than his actual face! Michael Myers was a real one for standing at windows and just creepily staring out.
That was my mistake. I thought you were referring to a different post. I need to pay more attention.
Glad things are improving.
Thanks. It is a relief.
