In the last few weeks, my cat Bonk has been losing her balance. She can't jump into the window anymore because of her balance. If she does manage to jump up there then she falls off the ledge. I am wondering if I should take her to the vet or is this just something I should expect since she is 21.
The other thing I have noticed is she is sleeping a lot. I know cats sleep a lot, but she seems to sleep so much more lately. Since we moved into our apartment Bonk has started sleeping with me. Bonk used to be a cat that did not like being held and certainly did not cuddle. In fact she was named Bonkers because we all thought she was kind of a crazy cat. In the last three years Bonk has transformed into this completely different cat. Now she wants to cuddle and will cry for me to pick her up. Her favorite thing for me to hold her and just walk around with her.
I was 14 when one of my brothers girlfriends left her at my parents house. I am so thankful that my parents allowed her to stay and become part of our family. I think you can see where I got my love of animals from.
When I tell people that I have a cat that is 21 most look at me in amazement. I wish I could figure out what the secret is so I make sure I do it with all my pets.
