Why I haven’t been posting lately.

Oh dear Mechtild! I have been checking your LJ regularly and thought it strange that you had not posted for a while. I was only thinking earlier today I would e-mail you later to ask if things were OK, but checked your LJ just now and saw your explanation.

I'm so sorry to know that your beautiful, beautiful cats are sick.

I don't have any experience of the Siamese breed, but your Pixie, Raoul and Angelo are absolutely gorgeous! The photographs are really lovely, but what a horrible situation, to have them all so sick at the same time. They are obviously well-loved and have the best of care ~ but I feel so much for you, having to deal with it all physically and emotionally. It must be such a drain on your energy, with everything else in RL having to carry on as normal. I feel for your daughter too ~ will she be coming home now that she has decided against staying in college? Perhaps she will see her dear cats again.

Apart from our two Giant African Land Snails (who are interesting but not exactly cute!) we only have a dog, who we adore ~ but once upon a time three cats lived with us(ours were your normal, everyday moggies). We lost Polly to cancer when she was ten years old. She had two operations, but the tumour kept recurring and she did not recover. Her
brother, Spike, lived to be sixteen ~ as did our sweet Willie (real name Wellington, who had extra toes on each paw). They both died as a result of liver-failure associated with old age. Our Jack Russell Terrier, Holly, came along as a puppy when Willie was our last, lone cat. He was like her big, patient brother, putting up with all her playful moods when he would much rather roll over and enjoy a snooze!

I'm glad to hear that Angelo is recovering, and Pixie has at least improved a little. Poor Raoul ~ I hope that he will not suffer overlong. I'm sure you are showering them all with as much love and attention as possible. Hugs to them, and to you too.

You'll be in my thoughts. Take care,

Love ~ Blossom.

Giant African Land Snails??? I'll have to look them up! I'll bet they have pretty shells and cute antennae.

Your story about your three cats was great, and so familiar. Poor Polly! It doesn't matter if they're Siamese or not. The best, most devoted cat my mother ever had was her last one. It was not a Siamese at all but a half-tailed stray she adopted. But that cat died at 7 or 8 of cancer, too. So it happens across all the breeds, just as it happens to all sorts of people.

Rachel will now be coming home in September, so she may very well see Pixie again, but Raoul will not last that long. I am thinking it will be a week or two at the most, but then again I never thought he'd last this long!

Thanks for the message and thoughts, Blossom. Have a lovely June!
