She's 13 years old so this is not entirely unexpected, but it's thrown me for a loop. No, really. I broke down crying at the grocery store today. I am not a crier, so this is HUGE. Falafel's barely eaten since Tuesday. We've managed to get her to take tinned food, bits of cheese, bananas and cucumbers (her top three favourite treats). More alarming is that she's only drunk water once. Then today Mr Wrath found this huge, ugly, bumpy, hairless lump on her spine that wasn't there before.
We're taking her to the vet on Tuesday, and trying to keep her as comfortable as possible in the meantime.
Here's a recent photo of her with Ezri the cat:

Is George Clooney wearing one of Mr Rogers' sweaters? What's he saying, I wonder? Did you notice the bulge in the crotch area that many a female, Twitter-user found impressive? Is the bald-headed cop sporting a pornstache? Is that Anderson Cooper over there on the far right? But my favourite part is that the cop in the white shirt looks like he stepped out of a Wallace and Gromit film. He is trying very hard to be stern, and he's almost pulling it off. Best day of his life, or BEST DAY OF HIS LIFE?!
Here's my final attempt at making you smile:
