Well, when they’re holding court in in the bathroom and Lady Emeraude is on the throne, what do you expect of three black cats who think I’ll mistake them for her and feed them her food?
This is actually from a few days ago. Emmie hasn’t been feeling well and it seems the lymphatic leukemia is finally getting the better of her. Her eyes have been weepy for a while, then I began to hear a sniffle. This developed into an upper respiratory infection that at first we weren’t sure wasn’t just the dry air irritating her eyes and now. But it’s part of her compromised immune system through the leukemia, the excess of white blood cells, the lack of red blood cells. Where she used to eat just about anything I put in front of her I’ve had to coax her to eat, and sometimes she just doesn’t. It’s not unexpected. She’s come a long way from the summer, and November when she was diagnosed.
Yesterday she sat on my lap for the first time as I sat on the floor in my studio. I’ve spent plenty of time sitting next to her on her bed in the bathroom, but she never got to my lap or stayed there if I placed her there. I think, like most of the cats who’ve spent time in this house, she likes my studio. She is welcome here.
