Back to Normal



Renn is feeling normal once again. He was better Friday evening, after I returned from work, and even ate a small amount of soft food at dinner-time. By Saturday morning, there was no sign that he had been under the weather. I think it may indeed have been a reaction to the flavour of food he was served. Though it had never troubled him before, I won’t take the chance that it is a permanent change; my big boy will not be receiving that variety again.

Saturday night was bath-night, and Renn was once more excited about the weekly event, demonstrating that all was well with him. I thank all those who expressed concern over his health and wished him well. Everyone reading this knows the worry a human suffers when a pet is inexplicably sick, and the relief felt when he recovers. Now, it’s back to living with Renn and the others as they are when they are normal…

  2. What great news to hear that Renn is back to his "old self". The nice thing about reading your blog, John, is that we all feel the same way - that our cats are part of our family and not just animals.

  4. Renn, I am SO happy for you and a whole lot for your Dad. There IS nothing worse than worry over a fur baby who is sick and no explainable reason as to why. We pawrents go to any extreme we can think of to make things better.

  5. Wonderful news! Answered prayers.
    We are all very relieved but probably not more than Renn himself who is unable to tell us why he was poorly.
    Hope you and he and all the kitties have a relaxing ,stress free day.

  7. Wonderful news! Well-done Renn.

    Bath night? For you John or the cats? Or does Renn like to visit you while you relax in the tub?

    1. Renn has, for some years now, become quite excited at the prospect of me having a bath. From this statement, one might assume that he celebrates cleanliness at last catching up to me but in fact I have showers most nights, baths on Saturdays. Renn loves it when the tubfills, and sometimes he stays while I bathe. I have no idea why he likes them; showers have no interest for him.
