Before you question why, let me say that I’m not depressed because of the game/demo. I’m still attempting to get the demo out before I leave for vacation in mid-August, but my depression is hindering it a little. The reason why I’m depressed is because my pet cat, Molly, is going through a rather uncomfortable phase in her life. About a month ago, we noticed that when she would breath, it sounded a little rough. So, we took her to the vet, but according to the vet, they said she seemed pretty healthy for her age, which if I recount, is about 16 years of age at least, and that she may simply have allergies. So, we accepted that diagnosis and thought she would be all right.
These past few days, however, she seemed to get progressively worse. Her breathing is even more rough to the point of wheezing. I can’t even recall the last time she coughed up a hairball, because I’m beginning to believe she is unable to cough any up now, perhaps because she’s getting weak. She doesn’t seem to be taking in much food and water. Even her favorite treats and canned foods go mostly uneaten. When she does attempt to eat/drink, she seems to have a really hard time. I’m guessing that it’s due to whatever is making it hard for her to breath, so imo, she’s weak because she’s not taking anything in because she doesn’t have the strength to clear her throat and breath normally.
Last night I kept tossing and turning in my bed, because every little noise crept into my room, and I continually imagined it was her crying out, so I barely got any sleep. We’re going to take her to the vet again today. I’m hoping that maybe they can do something to treat her that doesn’t involve emptying the little money I have in my finances. I know that at some point, there won’t be anything we can do, but I’d rather see if there are options, and if whatever this is is something easily treatable. I don’t think I could coup with the thought of her dying and me standing by doing nothing if there was something I could do. If we can’t do anything, then at least I’ll have the peace of mind that I tried when she does pass, but even after that, it’s going to be rough for me for a while as her memory will continue to hit me hard. I don’t take the passing of loved ones well.
So that’s the situation right now. I know you all are looking forward to the demo, but be aware that while I’m attempting to stay on schedule, these things inevitably happen to slow the progress.
