A Little Parker Pie Update

Hi Kitties! Here I am in my Daddy-Crafted blankie enjoying some whiffs from the open door. I wanted to let all of you know how I am doing. It's all OK for now. The 'rents are still astounded at my appetite, I eat like a little piggy and love it when I get special evening treats. In the days before this rotten cancer, treat were fair game for all four of us. If treats were out we'd try to outsmart each other to get more than our fair share. Now my brother Rudy and Puff and Powder don't even try to horn in. It's as if they know I am sick and they let me have as much as I want. They don't even beg for evening treats when I'm sitting next to Mommy. I think my sibs are pretty awesome.
I am so very tired now. I have no pain. I sleep almost all of the time and I struggle to walk to the kitchen to get noms. Every once in a while I miss the box. It's embarrassing, but the 'rents are so cool about it.  I can't lie kitties, I dream a little more about the Bridge every day. I hope I rally for the sake of my 'rents...but I just don't know. I think I might be ready to meet TOWCB*, I hear they are awesome. I send all of you smoochies, I am never too tired to do that! We just take it one day at a time.

Oh Parker, we are glad you have a good appetite still, but don't be afraid to go if you are ready. Your family will be sad, but they don't want you to suffer either.

**smooches**

Mariodacat said...

Oh sweetie - we so understand what you are going thru and how tired you must be. I'm so happy you gave us an update and I'm sure it was a hard one for your rent to type for you. It's going to be very hard on your rents and sibs because they all love you so much. But none of us want to see you in pain or having trouble walking, eating, whatever. Your rents will do the right thing at the right time - probably when you tell them you are just too tired. From what I hear - the OTRB is a fabulous place and you'll be running around like a kitten again. We love you precious Parker. Yikes Parker, do you know how long to remember you are a bootiful girl instead of a tom? I finally got it!!! Love you sweetie.

Forty Paws said...

Oh Parker! We are glad that you are enjoying the whiffs from the open door. And that you are eating tons of food and getting lots of treats. Your sibs are being very good to you in letting you get all of the treats. They realize that you aren't feeling very well. We will miss you so much when you cross over. But we understand that it might close to the time for you to leave us and to meet TOWCB. We send you tons of smoochies Parker Pie! Purrs, purrayers and headbutts too!

Max said...

It's ok to miss the box every now and then--it keeps people on their toes ;)

I'm glad you still like eating. That's my favorite thing EVER, and as long as you like eating...that's all good. I think you'll probably know when it's time to tell the people that you're ready to go to the bridge, and they'll be ok. For now... NOM ALL THE NOMS!!!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

brandi said...

We have been thinking good thoughts to you, Parker. Getting old sucks (believe me, it does), and getting sick sucks too.
What nice times we will have when we are Over There. So don't be sad.
Candles stay lit here pretty much all the time. For all our friends already over the Bridge, for all our friends who are ill, like you, and some time in the future for me and all the other senior ones, too.
Many ((((((hugs))))))!

Parker, we are so proud of you for the strength you are showing, and so impressed by the love and respect your siblings are giving you. Mom and Dad have cared for an ailing kitty before, so they understand the daily struggle your parents must be going through. We will keep purring for you. If we wore hats, we put on our rally caps -- but maybe we'll just be rally cats for you instead.
