I had a hard time sleeping last night. Maybe it was the full moon, or maybe it was because I spent some time with my sister and her family and it brought back memories, but I just kept waking up all night and having nightmares. Finally, at 6:30 in the morning I got up to reorient myself and remind myself that I am safe. Tempest and Perdi were really helpful with this as they were up and wanted attention. Patrick and Lucy were sleeping.
I’ve found it important to get up and eat something after I have nightmares like the ones last night. If I just keep laying in bed, my head will spin out. And, it’s like I also don’t always know where I’m at after those kinds of dreams. This morning I had to do reality testing on myself to re-orient.
Because I didn’t sleep well, I’ve been taking naps on and off all day. It has been nice, and Patrick cuddled with me during one of them.
Patrick and Lucy are still plugging along despite their health issues. Patrick had a hard time eating last night, but I think that is because he saw my sister’s dog yesterday. Today he is doing much better. Lucy’s eating has gotten better, too. Still, we have to feed them both about four times a day or more to get them to eat all of their food.
It can be quite overwhelming to take care of sickly cats, especially one with cancer. Time consuming too. I do it anyways, though, because I love these guys.
