Amanillo is lucky to have you trained to give him his way. They are so sweet. My Taffy was one month shy of 22, and my Tiger was 21.

Well I see the cats are chatting...
Amarillo is slowing down. He is still hanging in there. He wants outside in the mornings and we only let him out in the back yard. He can't jump on the fence any more and go over.
He walks the entire perimeter of the yard and comes back in to lay in his favorite chair.

Hi, Thor. I am meowing loudly in the living room but Mom is paying me NO ATTENTION! She just keeps at the computer in her room. The nerve! Well, I gave up and just decided to sit on her bed. She used to come running when I meowed crazy like that but not anymore. Perhaps I will try to throw up a hairball. That'll get her attention for sure. My brother Timon throws them up all the time.

Happy Thursday mornin' to ya'll . I know, it's 1:40 am and I'm still awake. I'll get to bed pretty soon now. Thor's already asleep on the futon here in the music/computer room with me.

Thanks for reading my blog and keeping up with Thor and me. I didn't tun any more red lights today. Don't want to repeat that experience again anytime soon. I mailed the money order in today for my fine. They don't take personal checks, and I can understand why.

Have a great day everyone. I promise I'll be back more often. emoticon emoticon

Hi Timon And Ebony, I'll write you tomorrow on my blog when I get back from that place again! Mom has put my taxi in the corner of the 'puter room. I checked it out to show her how BRAVE I am, and walked our very slowly. Guess I fooled her. Hope she can't find me in the morning, I'm going to find a good place to hide where she'll never look for me. Yep, in my taxi! That'll fix her running all 'round looking for me.

Hello young lovers...Er..Cat lovers! My mind went back to a song form a broadway show. Hope your day is going meowingly well.

Thor and I go back to the vet in the morning to see what's going on with his sugar count and if his infection has cleared up. I also think he's lost some weight, which he needed to do. He may be down to around 16.4 pounds according to my scale. He'll be blogging tomorrow after his appointment with Dr. Gail.

I went to the doc yesterday and had a small lesion taken off my nose and one on the side of my knee. We're sure it's nothing, but wanted to be sure anyway. Won't know for about 2 weeks. If I don't hear from my Dr. by then I know all is fine. That's how he handles the reports.

Decided I've been eating too much bread and peanut butter for lunch, so I started back on my Slim Fast Shakes for lunch again. They are so good. I like the chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ones. I buy the powder and add my own FF milk. It's cheaper that way. I make my milk for the skim milk powder. Much less expensive too. I'm having difficulty finding the strawberry powder. I'll just keep looking.

Have a good day all, and we'll be in touch tomorrow. emoticon

Good Morning All~
It's a rainy dreary day, so I don't think I'll get out for a walk. But I will def. get on the elliptical. I trying for 45 mins...

I currently have 6 cats. Peaches is the oldest around 10, we're not sure because we adopted her as an adult. Booboo, he's 6, my oldest son was working at a pet store when someone brought him in. He was about 3 weeks old & very sick. after lots of trips to the vet & 3 operations to help the pressure on his eyes. He is now a very big & strong boy who is blind. But he gets around wonderfully! And don't tell the others cats but he's my fave! Then we have the trio, Tai, Oliver & Amber they are 3. And Raven (aka miss,miss) is the baby at 2yrs.
I have foster a kitten once but I tend to get attached & then have a hard time giving them up! ;)

Wishing everyone a wonderful day!!

Move those bodies! emoticon

Elayne Mae: I have been where you are all too often. We lost three cats in 2006, and like you, I buried them in the woods out back, the woods they saw through the windows for their entire lives. I have little markers for each one. I find it peaceful to know they are still with me, even in that way.

The pain will ease, but it is so hard for awhile.

Elayne Mae I am so sorry for your loss. TIger did have a long life, what a great friend hw was to you. You were a good cat mama to him.

It breaks my heart every time I see a kitty dead in the road, but this is what happens when cats are let to run free outside whether by the owners choice or becasue they were dumped or born out of doors. SO terribly sad.



Joey is coming along wel, had a few setbacks I(collapsed lung, low O2 sats) but he is doing better! Praise God!

One bite, one day, one pound at a time. Remember you are worth the effort!

It is with a heavy heart that I write to tell you we had our 21 year old cat, Tiger, put to sleep yesterday, Maundy Thursday at 3:30 pm. That is Tiger's picture as my profile picture.

In February he became very ill with kidney failure..the symptoms of walking in circles, losing his balance, and not eating much. We expected to lose him that month. Well, after about a week he seemed to improve. He had no trouble jumping onto the futon, onto the computer and then to my desk to lay next to my keyboard. whenever I was at the computer. He did fine until Wednesday night. He went out as usual around 10 pm, and I called for him around 11 pm. As I watched him come across the yard I could see he was in trouble. I picked him up and brought him into the house. When I picked him up he cried out in pain. When I put him down on the floor, he crouched and didn't lay down. He couldn't walk. I laid him on the floor on a towel because I didn't want him up on something for fear of him falling. He would cry out when he went to change positions. His eyes had that blank stare...pleading for help. It was them I made the decision to call the vet in the morning.

We went on our journey at 2 pm and our appointment was at 2:30. As it turned out, Dr. Jean was behind schedule, so I had some extra time with him. I stayed with him and stroked him and talked to him as they gave him the medicine, and he went to sleep. They then gave him the second injection, and then it was over. Tiger had gone over the Rainbow Bridge. We came back home and buried him around where Taffy who was 22 and Sandy who was about 5 years old are buried. When I was walking toward the back door, our white feral kitty, Snowball, showed up to eat. Now he never shows up before 5 pm to eat. I don't believe that was a coincidence. My 4 year old kitty, Thor, was looking for him. They had become friendly with one another.

I know I will see Tiger, Taffy, Sandy, Tyke (from many years ago) as well as my kitty Midnight who I had growing up, again when I get to heaven. My ministers have said animals have souls and they do go to heaven and they have scripture to back this up. I have always believed that, so it gives me great comfort to know that they all will be watching for me at the Rainbow Bridge when my time comes, and we will be united for Eternity.

Rest in Peace Tiger. emoticon emoticon

so good to hear that Joey is over the surgery and resting now. I'll bet Marge is glad it is over.

ANGEL-BELIEVER...
I just love your two kitties; Tiger and Thor. Tiger looks so very old. Has he been in fights? Perhaps keep him inside. I hope Thor gets a better Vet. Keep us posted as to how they are both doing.

That is so true. I saw a dead cat yesterday on my way to work and also AGAIN on my way home today. I feel like you do, Mela. My two boys will NEVER see the outside unless they are in a cat carrier going to the Vet. I live near the foothills of mountains and coyotes are also a threat and has killed some of my friends pets. Kitties are safest INSIDE.

Mela: Unfortunately even slower speeds won't help cats. Unless they are barn cats, the only thing that helps is keeping them indoors. I don't know why people think it's cruel, it isn't. They live longer, healthier lives indoors.

That is good news Tracy!

On a sad note- I was driving down my street today (no sidewalks- 25 MPH) which cars zoom down from the condos at the top of the street. There was a beautiful cat dead on the side of the road - I was so shaken up and now convinced more than ever that Smokey will NEVER see the outside (unless it is in a cage on the way to the vet) - I called animal control to ask if someone could go out and remove him... I have complained numerous times to the township about the speed that drivers go down the road.. they used to have cops in speed traps, but they haven't done that for at least a year..

Good evening my Spark Friends!~

My GF Marge's hubby Joey is resting after his 7 hour heart transplant surgery. The next 72 hours will be very important in his recovery. Marge said there was so much scar tissue and the removal of the LVAD www.medgadget.com/archives/HeartMate
2.
jpg
, the defibrillator, and pacemaker made the surgery last a lot longer than expected. The heart is a healthy 40 something year old male heart and was in perfect condition. She was telling me now when he goes out in the sun he will need to wear sun block as their is a higher incidence of skin cancer among heart transplant recipients. There also can be no drinking and they need to be very careful of germs! All I can say is PRAISE GOD! Thank you all so much for your prayers!

Hi Angel,


Honey seems to be a computer cat as well. She just jumped up here next to me. She seems to be getting over the fact that she's bald! It's much better to have your cat with the same vet each time. Big places are too impersonal and can overlook subtle changes that can be happening. My oldest cat- Yoda - is 18. I took care of a cat that lived to be 25!!!

Oh My poor Honey...Bet She'll be glad when her fur grows back. They can be very self-conscious! Glad she has found a buddy in Chrissy so soon. That's too funny about your Simon Boy!

My Old Tiger Kitty is doing ok now. I have to accept the fact that he is old and I know doesn't have a lot of time left with us as he is 21. He spends most of his time here on the desk where my computer is. That's fine with me. I like to be able to reach out and pet him. Doesn't even sleep in a soft, comfortable chair..Guess her prefers the hard desk for some reason.

I'm changing vets and will be taking my big boy Thor in on the 24th to a new lady vet. It a Mother-daughter team. I got upset with my old vets because I saw someone different all the time even when I had made a specific appt with the one I wanted.I want who ever is seeing Thor to really get to know him. Plus, I called with a question about food on Friday and never heard back. I called yesterday and was tole the one who was working on that question wasn't in yet but would call me back when she came in..well, still no phone call and here it is after noon on Tuesday! Definitely time to change. I had to wait two weeks because I have to give Thor a calming med for 2 weeks before I take him in because he has anxiety attacks and the one time they had to give him oxygen. The Calmness worked well last time.

Hi Linda,

My Simon boy wants to be Honey's friend. I let him into visit. He loves everyone. My Marty boy sniffed her today while I was holding her- he cracks me up. I think he has no idea what she is with that haircut. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Everyone,

Honey is starting to look happier. She certainly likes to eat. She's been venturing out of the computer room which she shares with Chrissy, my 3 legged cat. I don't allow many cats in there as it upsets Chrissy. She and Honey share the big people bed, Honey gets under the covers.

These long hair kitties are beautiful, but a lot of work. Honey indeed looks upset, but is a beautiful cat!
So is Bast missing again? I hope he comes home soon.

I had a Himalayan that I used to have shaved twice a year, all except her head, from the knees down, and the tip of her tail. It was called a Lion Cut. Since she hated to be handled she got terribly matted without shaving so she liked the freedom. Honey might get to like not having lots of hair.

Well I showed Bast the pictures and flyers I put up to find him and he meowed and started snuggling up to me. So now he dissapears every weekend. I have an image of him looking for pictures of himself on stop signs and poles throughout the neighborhood.

Hoorah! Another cat SAVED and rescued. Both my two cats, Timon & Ebony, were left at my friends jobsite. She and her husband rescued them both and I became the owner. People can be so cruel dumping them like that. I am glad Honey has a good home now.

Awe...what a lucky kitty Honey is, and what a wonderful husband you have to have rescued her. It's nice to know she has a forever home now with people who love her. Can't wait to see her picture.

Hello everyone,
Well we have a new kitty. My husband found her when he went to check his Mom's house. She was starving and cold, all matted ( she's a long hair) How can people just let their cats go. We took her to the vet today, she's young, less than 2. We had her shaved and bathed to get rid of the terrible mats in her fur. I will post pictures on my webpage. Her name is Honey emoticon

Sandra, I know the grief you are feeling. That happened to me long after our Tyke died about 20 years ago now. It does get less painful in time.

My 21 year old Tiger, the one who has renal failure, wanted to go out at 1;30 this am. I let him out because he "goes" outside, not in a litter box having been raised outside on a golf course! Anyway, he walked right out to the gate, went under it and proceeded to walk up the street. I couldn't go after him since I had no shoes on and was in my pj's. I was a nervous wreck but DH assured me he would come back. Well, 20 minutes later I looked out the door and there he was, just sitting there waiting to be let in! Jeesh...But I'm glad he came back home. They can be as bad as kids when it comes to worrying about them. emoticon

I also used to go to Curves. Only quit because my work schedule became to hectic and Curves was not open when I could go.
Now I have equipment at home.

I woke up to the sound of my cat wailing at the front door. I let him in, tgho it was 4 a.m., and fed him, looked up and the kitchen was covered in ants. I spent about an hour cleaning the kitchen and wiping everything down. The first load odf dishes is in the dishwasher as the ants somehow made it into the cuopboards we keep the dishes in. All the while the cat is walking around the house meowing at the top of his lungs.
