The topic: Old cats
Hey, if you have an old cat who doesn't get around much, be sure to check his or her claws on a regular basis.
I hadn't checked Annie's in a while and imagine my dismay to see that three of them were actually touching the pad of her paw. I was lucky, I got out the nail trimmer and clipped all three and they just fell off, but sometimes, they actually grow into the pad and surgery becomes necessary.
One of her toes was a little more tender than the other two, but she's doing fine today.
By the way, I ordered another Drinkwell brand water fountain for the office. The one I got from CostCo didn't hold nearly enough water, it needed to be filled at least once a day. When I ordered the new one, I saw that they now have 72 ounce reservoirs, so I ordered two more of those.
Now, all fountains are Drinkwells and all have the larger reservoirs. Much more convenient.
And Annie gives it two healthy paws up.
