Re: Feline Follies

I've never forgotten that Casey found my family rather than us finding her. I don't know where she began, but I know that on one rainy night in November of 1998, she was a starving little cat who'd been on the streets and found an apartment with a few generous boys, my brother one of them. They took pity on that little waif and fed her and then they had a pet they couldn't keep. My brother asked his future wife, but her cat wasn't willing to share and the future wife's younger sister asked her parents but they said no. So my parents caved rather then send that little cat to a shelter. She was a little afraid of us for a bit, but became a wonderful house cat. She was my best friend for almost 15 years. As much as I love my dog, she can't purr and she can't sit with me like Casey could.

((((((Peach)))))) I'm so sorry about Casey.

My own dog and cat are getting up there in years (14 and 10 respectively; my dog is a rescue and my cat adopted us), so this is something that's frequently on my mind.

Re: Feline Follies

So sad. It was a little over 18 months ago that we had to put our Mycroft to rest. He had thyroid disease and we treated that and he was recovering when we noticed his ear was really bad. Took him back to the vet (I was very pissed because I was like "what the hell? you all did see this before?") and it looked like he had cancer.

They said we could do surgery but it wasn't 100% guaranteed because it was in his ear canal and so close to his brain stem. We decided it was his time. It was so hard and I'm beginning to tear up as I type this.

We had him since he was a kitten, 14 1/2 years and he was a trooper, traveling all over the country and to Germany with us since I'm in the US Army.

I miss him so much. okay, I have to go get some air. This is making me really sad thinking about my Mycroft.

That's how I felt about my two German Shepherds -- they were wonderful, but they didn't purr. I'm back to cats now.

Is Junior part mackerel tabby, auntiehill? I noticed the telling M mark on his forehead. And he does look like a big healthy boy. How big is he?

If I ever get another cat I'd love to get one like him. Or one with socks. Or an orange kitty. Okay, clearly I want another cat.

Cats are more fun in pairs. They have company when you're at work, as well.

I would but I would also like a boyfriend at some point. How many cats can a person get before they ruin all chances of dating in the future?
