It's tough being without real news. All I see in the MSM is non-stop "Obama's going to save the universe" junk all over the place.
I know, I'm tired of it but I think the shine could be wearing off a little or will soon when he has to "walk the walk." BTW, nice kitty you have there, mine is my old avatar from 2004 so some might remember me. She is Muffin, born 1987, died 2004, was my aunt's cat until she was on her deathbed and asked us to take her in 1995. She was a Burmese. In 2002, she was diagnosed with kidney failure but we kept her alive for 2 and a half years. I lost another black cat, Pixie, last month, she was 16. Muffin was almost 17 when she passed on.
Sorry to hear about Muffin... my 4 cats send their condolences! I'll bet you've given all your kitties good lives though, what else can anyone ask for?
Some more bad news, I lost 5 cats in 3 years, most were older though. We lost Greystone in April of 2006, he was only 5, kidney failure. We still have his mother, Spunky, and brother, G.W. "Dubya," and sister, Whitey. We lost Pansy in August of 2006, she was 19, a diluted calico, she had lymphoma. Buddha, Boo, we lost in August of 2007, he was 17 and a month later, Corky, she was 18 and last month, we lost Pixie at 16. In 2007, we did get a new kitten, Rascal. When I was here last I had 9 cats, went down to 8, I only have 4 now. We tried our best with all of them, Boo had a high thyroid but he died before we found out, I thik the vets putzed around too much and this eventually led to his death. So I've been a sad Panda from time to time.
thats sad..Im a cat lover myself...I had 2 cats, Herbie and Mango, but I had to move here to Red Deer from Vegreville to attend college.Herbie and Mango are still at home in Vegreville with my parents...At least they are being well looked after even when Im gone and I can still see them when I come home for christmas...I would have brought them but the place Im renting....no pets allowed.
