In the last 24 hours Sassy has taken a real downturn. She is barely eating (although she spent 20 minutes with me outside today and nibbled a bit of grass). She isn't playing. She isn't cleaning herself. Not going to the bathroom much And most troublesome and the sign all cat-owners dread...she is spending 80%-90% of her day hiding away beneath a dresser she likes to be under.
Barring an emergency situation that would call for it to be done sooner, we will take her in tomorrow night after I get home from work. We'd have done it tonight, but C has to work. And we both want to be there if it is possible, but both agree that is it gets much worse, we will take her in on our own.
It is funny because I haven't told anyone in real life this yet. It is easier to acknowledge we are going to do this here than to say it out loud.
I'm just glad we got to have a few more good times together. Especially nice today to see her so happy to be outside when nothing seems to make her happy anymore. She ate a bit of grass, and then just sort of sat next to me in the sun while I pet her, occasionally head-butting my leg.
