@Steve81 I hope the vet visit turned out ok. Our pets are family!
Fortunately everything is OK, but had a big scare. Max(imus) lost his footing and fell down a flight of stairs. At first, it looked like he was just going to walk it off, but the next day he wouldn’t get up, even for treats, nor could he seemingly stand, even with assistance getting up. At 12.5 years of age, that seemed pretty grim.

Thankfully there were no breaks / dislocations, and he’s back to some semblance of normal. Main problem is I’m not sure about putting up gates to block stair access. Had them when my kids were younger, and one time he managed to break most of his front toes on one doing who knows what. For now, He’s staying on the main level for the most part, and when he does go up at night, I’ve just been carrying him down in the morning (he’s ~50 pounds, so not a major sweat off my back).

128 this morning
I probably deserved more as it is Memorial Day weekend and my 46th wedding anniversary weekend.
Congrats, I see Gold in your 3-5 year future.
