Edited to Add: Sorry I have been pressed for time and often up-load photos without explanation.
This is our eighteen-year-old (?) Demi. She has started to look her age over the past couple weeks and asked to come into the house from the shop on April 16th. She spends most of her time sleeping by the wood stove, where we have also provided her with fresh water and food.
She is obviously wearing out but seems happy and eats well, so aside from giving her extra fluids, we are letting her rest. We have been through this final stage of live often enough as our cats age and know what signs to distress to look for. She is doing okay and we hope she can drift off peacefully into the forever sleep snuggled in her warm bed.
