Haven't posted in a long time. Just to refresh: I am kooky-cats (Lana). Not sure if I posted but my husband Paul Passed away 18 mos ago. Been a nightmare. Right after I was diagnosed with breast canceer. Had partial mastectomy, did almost 6 mos of chemo and 33 radiations. Doing well, had mammo and all clear. Hospice counseling after Paul's passing has saved my life. Met new caring friends, also on-line support groups. Have my 2 cats, Charlie and Franny. Charlie is a Russian Blue and my amazing support. Franny was rescued from a parking lot 2 years ago. Took a while but she is happy and trusting. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

They are lovely, Charlie looks very comfortable but Franny has that look in her eyes that says "not staying long here"

He is very jealous of her. aT first I thought that they would be friends but once she got comfortable in the house (she was petrified at first) he felt it was ok to attack her.
