All about Mikey aka "Mikey Man", Obooba, "My Bed Pillow"
We all know how important nutrition is to good health. Food gives us fuel for energy and allows us to do things that we usually take for granted. The same goes for animals. However, when an animal is sick, or is in the hospital, it can often be very tricky to get them to eat properly. The term “anorexia” means that an animal is inappetent, uninterested in food, and has stopped eating. It is very important to keep the calories up in a sick patient since this is the time they need them the most. Nutritionists have calculated formulas for energy requirements for different sized animals that are healthy.

Every night when my head hit the pillow, he was there to lie across my arm. I would fall asleep with my face buried in his belly as his purr lulled me to sleep. I couldn't sleep without him.
That day, the stomach cancer was so painful he cried. I had held out in the unrealistic hope that I could kill the demon inside him.
The vet helped bring him peace and take away his pain. My beloved “Bed Pillow”, Mikey, drifted off to sleep and then the injection that would prevent me from ever seeing him again--remembered always.
