Otis doesn’t seem to follow a lot of these, but he has been yowling at different times of day & staring off, then coming back to what he was doing. He will eat for a little while, stop then go back when I move it to him. Although, he is beginning to not eat his wet food. And he is sleeping a lot.
I have to give him two hyperthyroid pills a day and it’s a fight. We have to try to balance his quality of life with the need for medicine. I don’t want him to end his life with me forcing meds on him. He is still full of cuddles and love, just getting old.

We had a dog with dementia. She would go to the door, but face the hinge instead of the opening of the door and different things like that.
