Rollercoaster

Greetings, Fellow Felines!

Possum here. Pixie has had rather a bad week, hardly eating anything, though yesterday evening our Human managed to pursuade her to eat quite a bit, by adding a few drops of gravy from the Chicken Hearts and Liver Fancy Feast, instead of the tuna. It has a stronger smell, you see. 

On Wednesday, Pixie submitted to her infusion (poor Pixie, I think she was feeling too weak to resist). 

Mummy felt quite despairing mid-week. I heard her talking on the phone with her Daddy and I know she was thinking it might be time to help Pixie to the Bridge, but then she talked to the V-E-T on the phone and he said there is a canned, moist version of the special Renal Diet, though he didn't have any in stock and will have to order it, which will take a few days. Meanwhile, the Lady V-E-T (who is his Mate) said that in the meantime, there is nothing for it but to add some drops of FF gravy to Pixie's dry food, because if she doesn't eat, she'll die. But only a very few drops. But I also want gravy added to My food, it's not fair that only Pixie should get it. So I went on strike and refused to eat until Mummy flavoured My dry food as well.

Fellow Felines, I love Pixie and I know she's very sick, but sometimes, I get quite angry with her, because it seems Mummy is devoting all her time and attention to her (even though she always makes an effort to make quality time for Me). Am I a very wicked kitty for having such feelings?

It's normal to be jealous when the other "sibling" gets the lion's share of attention, for whatever reason.

We're sending our purrs to Pixie, that whatever happens will be for her Highest Good.

You aren't being a wicked kitty, but you need to enjoy your beloved Pixie while you can. Some day you will have your mommy to yourself.

Oh Possum...Pixie...Momma and I have the deepest empathy for you. We are going through a trial as well and we feel your worries and emotions. xoxox

We understand how you must feel Possum. And NO, we don't think you are wicked. We continue to send purrs and say prayers for Pixie and that the canned Renal diet arrives soon and that Pixie likes it.

You are not wicked at all, Possum. It is really difficult when your sibling requires so much attention, and it's normal to feel left out. We are sending purrs and prayers to you all, dear friends.

Possum you are being honest and that's a good thing! Your mom needs a bit of a cuddle as she is rather worried. So be a good chap and floof up for her xox

Poor Possum, its hard on you too! It isn't bad at all, its normal. You feel well and you want to do fun things and get your share of love. Poor little Pixie! Having been through this kind of thing a few times, we know how hard it is on everyone. We keep purring and purraying for you all.
