Frimousse’s docteure doesn’t puncture cats without a proper anaesthetic. And in the condition of an old cat like Frimousse an anaesthetic can prove fatal. The swelling of the stomach due to ascites doesn’t make Frimousse suffer, he feels the same discomfort as a woman expecting a baby. In addition to that the ascites would come back rapidly to the same level and a new puncture would be necessary within eight or ten days, with another anaesthetic.
So she gave Frimousse an injection, the same medicine as a fortnight ago, and we came back home. Frimousse spent much of the evening on top of his piano.
This morning he asked me to open the cat flap for him only a few minutes ago, at 8:30. That is very unusual. By, before, he “helped” me cut the meat for the moussaka I am preparing for our visitors tomorrow. What he ate represents quite a proper meal for him!
Thank you for concerning yourself with our sweet Frimousse’s health. How long will he still be alive? His docteure can’t say. She told us that Frimousse will become weaker and weaker and injections will no longer be able to boost his appetite nor walk about in his garden, and live his life.
