On Wednesday, I exchanged Elaina’s weight reduction food for one of her new favorite’s—Hill’s Urgent Care A/D with chicken—at my veterinarian’s office. At this point, Elaina can have anything she’d like to eat because the cancer can’t be cured. The nice thing about buying cat food from my vet is that I can swap it for a different flavor or they will credit my account if the girls don’t like it.
I also showed the vet a photo of the food we bought at Tractor Supply for Elaina and asked if Christie could have some. Other than a few bites, Christie can’t have any kitty crack (like Friskies and Fancy Feast) because it’s bad for her kidneys.
On my drive home from the vet’s office, I was thinking about Elaina—she’s on my mind constantly. When I parked my car, a brown box on my front step caught my attention. The package was covered in flowers and the words “Everything With Heart” stood out.
I was curious about the parcel, and so were the cats. As soon as I set the box on the floor, they started sniffing it. I got some scissors, opened the box, and when I read the note inside happy tears streamed down my face.
My cat lady crew sent me a beautiful bouquet (made by Farm Girl Flowers)! Since Elaina’s diagnosis, I’ve been sharing updates about Elaina with my girlfriends. I adore these ladies, and I feel fortunate to have such thoughtful, supportive friends.
