Is time long or is it wide?

Skinny Cat is in the hospital.

She’d been having weight problems, but seemed to be getting better, i.e., gaining weight. I was sure of it.

Over the past couple of days, however, her behavior changed: While she continued to eat, she basically stopped moving except to get to the food dish and the litter box. She stopped climbing on to the chairs, stopped climbing into bed, stopped coming into the bedroom in the morning yelling at me to get my ass in gear and feed her the canned food.

So I spent the morning looking up and calling around to vets, finally finding one I could get to by bus and who would see her today.

The first thing he said, upon examining her and finding out how old she is—18—was, ‘You have some decisions to make.’

I find out tomorrow what kind of decisions they will be.
