Sunbath



Sweet old Grendel--still feral but getting more comfortable around us. I guess she should--she's been living with us now for over a decade. She lets me pet her when I feed her but only in her eating place. The rest of the time she prefers if we keep our distance.

I made a vet appointment for her--a geriatric check-up. She has begun to lose weight and I suspect our time with her is drawing toward an end. I want to make sure she is comfortable and that we are treating any ailments that are treatable. She has taken up so little space in our home but I know that being here--inside and safe with all the other cats--has made her life longer and fuller.

So sad that the fear gets so ingrained.
