Othello has lost a lot of weight suddenly – as in over the past two weeks. You can practically feel his hipbone when you pet him. I think we’re due for a visit to the vet – I’m hoping it’s just some parasite he’s picked up during some recent unauthorized visits to the outside world (he’s gotten almost as bad about that as Obi). He’s not really a young cat anymore, so I have no doubt this is taking its toll on him, but he’s still drinking plenty of water, so that at least is a plus – he’s at least trying to stay alive here. Which is good considering how much I love my old cat.
