We’ve had some limited experience with injections, but both Liz and I were not great/comfortable with needles. And it turns out that Liz couldn’t bring herself to do the subcutaneous injections, so I needed to be the one.
Tonight, I happened across this moment where Daisy was lying next to Phineas… but then Phineas decided he needed more greens. So what did he do? Climbed right over Daisy, of course!
Liz took Phineas in for another checkup today, and we got some really sad news. Phineas is not doing well, and it seems like he’s not likely to recover back to full health.
Phineas has… not been doing well, lately. He’s had problems going to the bathroom, has been fighting all his medication, and most worrisome of all… he’s really lost his appetite. Which is a very concerning and dangerous sign.
Tonight, it seemed that Daisy got herself underneath Phineas. And then Phineas just decided to… take a nap?
Like, no grooming, no work. He just decided that it was time to sleep.
It’s rare that I see him in here, and it made for a nice little framing for the photo I took.
Was spending a little time sitting with Daisy and Phineas. After they got super cozy, I was able to set my phone on the ground to get this close-up photo.
Not the greatest photo in the world, but I wanted to capture this moment where Daisy was leaning hard on Phineas… and the two of them just looked like the best of buddies.
Came downstairs to find Phineas sleeping. On closer inspection, I realized he leaned right into a food dish and didn’t seem to care one bit.
I went about vacuuming the area, and even got the vacuum right up to the entrance here. Phineas? Didn’t move an inch. Not at all. He was so still, for a moment there I thought we had maybe lost him.
It’s a challenge, updating this blog when I really don’t leave the house all that much. I used to take more photos when I was walking to/from the train, and well… we really don’t do that anymore.
With all the work that’s happened on the first floor recently, there was no good space for them. But they’re back now, and staying with us in the interim… until everyone has to locate again (once the final floors are installed).
Tonight, we worked on getting the bunnies moved from their current area… over to the newly demo-ed living room. We’ll be pulling up the floor in the main hall area, and so it’s another game of shuffle while we move things (and bunnies) around.
I didn’t see the full sequence of events, but here’s how I imagine it went down: Daisy was sitting, content in the Hop ‘n Flop. And then when Phineas came near, she kind of army-crawled her way closer to him.
Look at that little mug.
