    Hobie has not only stolen your heart but all of ours as well. :grouphug: Seniors are absolutely the best!

    Hello, everyone.

    Hobie is settling in wonderfully! He's been here a week now already. I've attached some pictures of him.

    @oldgloryrags88 Is he putting weight on yet?
    How did his Vet visit go?

    I think he looks better already!

    Just a question, in that first picture where he is looking straight at the camera, I notice 2 little "lumps" on the lower left side; are those some growths that he has on him?

    @les26 Click that image for a larger size. Is it possible that you are seeing the leather pink pads of his left rear foot?

    Yes, those are his toes! :p

    He is eating really well and he also got to meet my other 3 now. They are getting along well.

    Count me in also (obviously).

    Ahh, what a lovely 'older gentleman.' What's his story? I'd like to know, wishing that it's not a sad tale but I'm prepared if it is.
    Have you had an MC before @oldgloryrags88 ? If so you'll know how wonderful they are and if not you'll soon find out that they're half dog and half cat with the best bits of each.
    BIAS ALERT: They're just the best breed ever.
    This is a very optimistic thread for me as I hope beyond hope that my boy Oliver has a long life such as he has.
    TEMPTING FATE DISCLAIMER: All my fingers and toes are crossed; touching wood many times and all similar measures are in place, after writing the previous paragraph, and are fully functioning.
