I was up all night with our Jimi Cheezsteak.  He'll either be 14 or 15 on June 1st (we can't remember the year and the vet where we took him when he was small is out of business).  He suddenly lost all control of his hind legs.   DH took him to the vet yesterday and we were told this isn't uncommon in older cats and small dogs.  He's on antiiinflammatories in case its due to something pressing on his spine.  But it's just as likely to be cancer for which they can do nothing.  He scoots around the house pretty well, doesn't appear to be in pain, and is eating well.  He can't make it in/out of his cat box so we've set up a pad next to it (plastic underneath a soft towel).  We know this is probably the beginning of the end (vet told us to prepare for it).  We just want to give him every chance and hope his passing is gentle when it comes.  All prayers and kind thoughts happily accepted.

He's still hanging in there.  The antiinflammatories don't seem to be doing him any good as there has been no change.  He is becoming more lethargic so we're just loving on him as much as we can.  

Thanks to all of you.

Jimi Cheezsteak reached his 14th (15?) birthday with us yesterday, against all odds.  He entered into that last, deep sleep sometime this morning, at home and in comfort.

Thank you to all who reached out to me.  It meant so much.
