I remember when Capri was ill for so long (obstructions w/peritonitis, multiple abdominal surgeries ) I basically covered the floor with a foam mattress and dog beds, gated off the doorways and stairs into that room, and pretty much lived in there with her--slept, ate, read, crocheted and just sat, for probably 6 months or so--I had my laptop, the TV, good books, and the mattress was comfortable. Of course, she wasn't particularly interested in moving around and Kip was getting older too. Tish, our cat at the time, just took advantage of all of the soft surfaces.
And I had the advantage of not working and letting the rest of the family carry the rest of the home managing load--I just had the animals to nurse.
Actually, looking at these pictures, Kip is the one on the big bed in a nightie. Hmmm....I think this picture was actually after he had a lot of lumps removed; he had one that was growing right alongside his sheath threatening to grow into its tissues (as opposed to just under the skin riding on top of the muscle layers) and we took off a few of his other lipomas at the same time.
But the setup was the same when Capri was sick.
