Awwww bless cat...I'll look after you the best i can when i ain't working lol!! See, I told you everyone was really nice on the cat!!
I'm really greatful to all of you for helping to give her support on this matter, because to be faced with such a thing at our age is quite scary to say the least especially when you're only allowed 2-3 in your lifetime. Cat is a very active person, well, you have to be where we live cos it's a mile and a half walk to the nearest shop or bus stop.....or pub in her case lol!! She walks to work with me quite frequently, not to keep me company though...she just wants ciggarettes lol!! It is good for us!!
My dad has arthritis and is now about 53, but he refuses to have his hips and knees replaced til he literally can't walk anymore, not because he's scared of it, just because he'd rather carry on as he is very active due to his job and doesn't want to wear them away.
I am arthritic aswell, and will eventually need knee replacements...but we try and carry on and look on the brightside of life for the moment and will cross that bridge when we come to it.
It's cool living with cat, cos we can support each other when we need it...yeah we argue sometimes...but doesn't eveybody? When you've known each other for nearly 22 years(all our life) then what do you expect? I'm just happy i've got such a good friend!!
