the kitty

kiri is a very, very special cat. when i got her, she was 9. i got her off a petsmart rescue board because i wanted a lap cat who'd love me and be all over me.

kiri is definately that. she's so aggrivating sometimes because she wants to sit on me or directly in front of me all the time.

over the past couple of months she's been losing some weight. tonight i picked her up and saw that she's got a huge abcess of some kind in the right side of her mouth. she's also lost a significant amount of weight in the past couple of days, she's shedding like there's no winter left.

i got her in 1998, i suppose. i figure she's about 15 now. and she's been everything to me that i could hope for in a pet. she's sweet to me all the time, loves me unconditionally, and even forgives me when i'm mean to her (like when i've thrown her off my lap for the 38th time in a half hour).

i'm planning on taking her to the vet first thing in the morning, but have no idea what we'll find.

i hope she'll be okay.
