No Longer a Widebody for Wednesday

Today we present our oldest cousin Chelsea, who is 14. Last year we featured her as an example for Widebody Wednesdays. Unfortunately, Chelsea was diagnosed with kidney disease a couple of months ago. As soon as Mom saw her, she knew without anyone telling her. Chelsea's eyes told the story, and her weightloss was apparent. It's fortunate that she had a few extra pounds on her. Her appetite is poor, but she's hanging in there, and her family is trying to feed her only the best of canned food. We wish her the best.


For the lady of our friends; Grr, Midnight, and Cocoa; we present another photo of floofy Sophie, Chelsea's much younger sister.

Oh poor Chelsea, that is a hard diagnosis. I'm glad she's doing well but its a shame she doesn't eat more.

Oh Chelse we hope you have a nice warm place to curl up on and rest. Renal failure stinks, my mums cat Puss had it and she liked to curl up on her blankie, and mums bed lots. Take care sweetie.

Chelsea, you are still very beautiful. And I think you are a very brave and wonderful cat.
