Tell Us About Your Senior Pet
Herman was a once-in-a-lifetime cat. He was brought in by animal control, run over by a care (in the face) and, frankly, a mess. But it was love at first sight, and when it was realized that he was ownerless, I knew he would be mine.
He lived a long life as an indoor-only cat, loved his dogs and most of his cat housemates. He was very friendly and outgoing, serving as a "pet therapist" in his younger years, cheering up the elderly in nursing homes.
He loved eating. He loved purring. He had a sense of humor. He was a sage companion. I miss him.
Herman shared his life with many pets over the years; 6 dogs and 3 cat housemates. He also enjoyed the freshwater fish tanks.
Herman was a cat who enjoyed dogs. He loved being "sassy" and giving them a little run for their money. He also loved curling up with his favorite canines.
- As Herman's appetite diminished from the effects of kidney failure, I mixed in plain yogurt with canned food. He loved this healthy treat.
- I provided several soft spots around the house for warmth and comfort as he got older and thinner.
- As he became hard of hearing (mostly deaf) in later years, I always did a "Herman check" before leaving the house to make sure he wasn't in trouble or not feeling well. Most of the time, he was just really sleeping soundly.
