    Steroids also boost the appetite, so maybe Merlin will eat better.

    I know how hard it is to see our babies getting old and sick, and to take that final decision, but he'll tell you when it's time. Just keep him free of pain and give him lots of loving until then. I so wanted to take Fister back home for just a few more days, but his quality of life would not have been good. So, even though I miss him, the decision was a good one. You will know, too.

    Give Merlin some gentle kisses from me!

    ((((hugs)))) to you, dear Slick.

    Thanks for all your replies everyone. Merlin has been eating well up until this morning. He's on Hills A/D which is a very smooth pate and when I add warm water to it, it seems to go down well. This morning Merlin didn't eat that much and I'll be out all day but will monitor it tonight. I've promised him that I will be with him forever and that he won't be alone when the time comes and I will move mountains to make sure that happens.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    To my dearest Merlin sweetie, Meowmie just lit another candle for you: http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/...g&cid=18279823

    I'm doing so much better! All your good wishes and prayers have brought my appetite back!

    I am sending all my love and wish I was there to cuddle up next to you and help you feel better.

    Love always from your devoted lady Sparkler

    Oh my love: I wish I could expurress how much you mean to me. Purrease don't wurry 'cause I'm OK so far. I'm eating good but I'm sad 'cause I can't eat my krunchies any more. Mewomie gives me soft food and it's really tasty. I've always loved soft food but up until now I only got it as a treat. I'm lucky now.

    My Meowmie has put a heating pad underneath my napping blanket on the couch so I stay nice and warm, but not as warm as I would be with you by my side. I wuv you so much my Sparkler.
    Purreverly yours
    Merlin

    Meowmie here: I'm quite surprised on how well Merlin is doing. He really is anxious to eat morning and night and his output is good. He gets his pain med and the prednisolone twice daily. He hates taking it but I've got it down to a science now. Thanks everyone for your good wishes.

    Merlin continues to eat like a pig - something I'm not complaining about. He has taken to sleeping on my closed laptop lid (I have another screen that I use) with the heat of the lamp keeping him warm. Due to the fact that his input and output are good, I'm not worried yet.
    He told me to tell you all thank you for the well wishes and candles lit. His quality of life is still quite good so I think I'm a long way yet before saying good-bye - or I could just be in denial.
