     Mom has vascular dementia mixed w/Alzheimer's. Last night I went out for a few hours, when I got home everyone was asleep. I noticed a small amount of crunches on the table so I ate a couple of bites and wondered where they came from. It was cat food and mom had been eating them as a snack. Nobody noticed she had scooped it out of the cats dish. Boy you need eyes in the back of your head.
