This guy, completely makes my life.
I have a pretty swell hubby, and a charming baby, but for some reason, my cat is the cherry on the top.
It’s been a rough time for him. He was here before the baby and he’s had to adjust. Despite me previously not being a ‘cat person’, I am a convert. He’s pretty much my cat. I’m his primary carer.
After dealing with a baby, as well as an influx of visitors, he was pretty stressed. He ended up in hospital with a urethral plug which, if left, can be fatal within a couple of days.
Luckily, he’s all good. I’ve nursed him back to health and he seems happier than ever. On the vet’s advice we’ve started using a Feliway plug-in and either it’s a weird coincidence, or it totally works.
Bruce is like a more confident version of himself. He’s not hiding away all the time. Even when people are here he will usually show his face (unless it’s a big group). He even goes up to my sister and parents for fuss now. I’m so proud of the way he’s dealt with this. Hopefully we won’t have a recurrence. He’s now on Hills Urinary Stress food and I’m making even MORE of an effort to give him mummy time (even if it means I have no time to myself).
It’s crazy how a cat can mean as much to me as my baby and husband. Am I mad?!
