I am very pleased to write that the health of Charlie is improved. Though still having analgesic drops in his food daily, not jumping up on to the window sill to watch the world go by, Chas' is happily walking better & lets us stroke his back where previously it was sore for him.
I sense that he isn't totally recovered, & I wonder if its the painkillers that make him sleep more than usual (especially during the daytime). What I do miss greatly is him not jumping up onto my lap as he used too for a fuss, but I hope & pray that he will begin to once again enjoy the activities that he formerly used to.
Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts & prayers for Charlie.
