if i had known the signs

sick to my stomach,
it’s all there in black, in white
all those early signs.

The Natural Cat
lists them all. I should have known.
but how could I know?

that weight loss mixed with
lethargy, vomiting and
digestive upsets.

Foamy yellow bile
and lightly colored stool. That
the random pee sprays

were anything but.
mood swings: good to bad. the trots
and all of that stuff

are symptoms, symptoms
symptoms of liver disease,
pause before next steps.
