In More Recent Years…
Eventually, with love, patience and treats, Wesley came around. He stopped stuffing himself into desk drawers and started hanging out in my closet on a shelf – making himself a nest out of my sweaters.
Years later, he started following me around and becoming a complete lap cat and my shadow. To this day, Wesley sleeps with me every night, and as I blog, he tries his hardest to lay on my laptop while I type. Instead, I set up an oversized warm wool pillow where he naps (and is napping right now).
Wesley is turning 17 years old in January. He has irritable bowel disease, hypercalcemia, and early renal disease, but that doesn’t stop him. He loves catnip and chasing jingle balls after breakfast. He has helped “nurse” my other cats through their own health problems and he’s become best buddies with my husband and my cat Romeo.
Wesley has been, and continues to be my loyal buddy – and I will always be by his side the way he has been by mine.
