    New Tuxedo Baby!

    A friend needed to re-home her cat. She's been looking for a place for a couple of weeks with no luck. I was considering getting a 3rd, although I was intending on getting a Devon Rex kitten...but really felt that I should instead offer to re-home her girl, Eliza. I brought her to my place...

    If Anyone Here Has Been Here A Long-ish Time...

    My Cable got very ill back last winter. She dropped over 1/2 her body weight & wasn't eating, so I chose to euthanize her. I took her to the shelter, & brought home a new furbaby, I/O (she's the cat on the left in my avatar) so that Ping wouldn't be alone. Cable was a sweet girl, and I miss her...

    Pixel, my 14 year old, left for the Bridge last night. :sniffle: i'd had her (& her littermate :angel: Mouse) since they were both about 7 weeks old. i'd read the name Pixel in a book & liked it - the problem was finding a 'companion' name. a friend suggested Mouse, & Mouse was a blue cat, so it...

    Cable's got cardiomyopathy :(

    Cable's been wheezing lately, so i took her to the vet a couple of weeks ago. vet thought it was feline asthma - gave her a steroid shot - & i had recently switched to a new, lighter-weight litter that i thought might have triggered it [she's a major flinger!]. anyway, it got a little better...

    Java has a sore paw!

    Java's left paw has a strange looking claw thing... looks like the pad has sorta 'split' at the base where the claw retracts. it's dirty looking & feels slightly warm... i'll be calling the vet in the morning, but figured she could use some of those powerful 'healing' TCS & in the meantime!
