a combination of stress and joy

Man, what a trying few days. I love having my granddaughter here. She’s an absolute delight.

It’s upset the cats, however. We’ve had one that’s hidden in the basement the whole time, refusing to eat. Another that I’ve only seen twice, but at least when we did, he was eating. Another has stopped cleaning herself completely. She’s still eating, but something is up there. The other seems so lethargic that I have to wonder if, at twenty, this is finally it.

It’s stressing me out, in the middle of what’s otherwise a joyous time.
