|Cat and Mouse|
UPDATE: Please see the update at the bottom of the post.
Toots and I are heading to the vet here in a little while. My beautiful cat, Pearl, about whom I've written (here) before, my constant companion, my best kitty bud, is very definitely sick. She does nothing but walk around in tight circles; she bumps into things whereafter she loses her balance; she had shit on her fur, which is an indignity that she would never suffer if she were healthy.
I fear the worst. I swear to god, if I have to say goodbye to her today I'm going to lose my shit. I'm already halfway down a pretty dark hole but if something bad happens, I honestly don't know what tomorrow will look like.
Wish her luck.

UPDATE: They think Pearl had a stroke or has some kind of brain lesion. Her right eye is fixed and dilated, and her left eye doesn't respond to light, although they think she has some vision in it. She's home now and we're awaiting bloodwork to determine what exactly the issue is, and if we're going to make a hard decision or not. I'll keep you all posted.
