Missy is still hanging in there. She was in renal failure about a month ago, and so we've been giving her subcutaneous fluids every day, and she's made a complete turnaround. It was a rough couple of weeks though, when she'd basically sleep all day, rarely coming out to be with us. We have set up beds for her to sleep in at all of her favorite haunts, so now there are beds in both of our closets, the bathroom and under each of our desks, so she can have her pick. But after a month, she's up much of the day, and has been eating so much I think she's actually getting fatter now. She looks good, for 17 years. This is her "Human Servant, I'm awake now, surely it's time for you to feed me!" look, which we get about 6 times a day now.
