Back in 2011 I was given a cat by my sister in law who she found injured near her house. She took him to the vet an got him all “patched” up, but it wasn’t until a couple years later when it was discovered he was FIV+. He had been having issues with his teeth and when I took him to the vet they tested him and thats how I found out. So I was given the option to either have him put to sleep or have his teeth removed and he’d probably live another 5 years. I went for the teeth option (duh) and he ended up living another 7 years after his diagnosis. Anyway he was a cool, chill cat and mostly spent his day sleeping and eating…I’m a freelance illustrator so I’m at home a lot and he would sit and watch me draw / paint. Miss him a lot.
