Cats can't read

You know what the vet told me yesterday?  That cats can't read and that means they don't know what the blood test results are.  Unfortunately, the blood test results show that my sweetest little Margo is in kidney failure.  But the vet told me that to explain (and maybe also to be a little funny so that I wouldn't start crying again) the fact that ever since we brought her home from the emergency animal hospital on Saturday, she's been seeming so happy and alert and responsive and willing to eat (more than willing to eat!) and groom herself - it just didn't seem to jive with the fact that we know she's dying or that we'd spent the whole weekend sitting on the couch crying.  She said that sometime kitties surprise us.  sometimes, with a bit of TLC, and 100 ccs of transdermal fluids every other day, they can often be around, and have a happy life, for a good while longer.  and I'm willing to do that.  Because she's my little Marjorie.
I love you Margpie - more than you'll ever know. <3
