Thank you for the update about your RL! I didn't know you have cats!! :) The pics of them all are gorgeous and I must admit to being a bit envious since our two cats (coming from a very very very bad place from which we more or less rescued them) never have been the cuddling type much, especially not with each other.

Still, we love our cats dearly and a few years ago it looked as if our tom cat might have cancer and for days until we got the results we suffered so very much. It turned out that it was just something harmless and so we haven't had to say goodbye to a beloved pet yet but we know that the time will come. Our cats are both 8 this year.

I loved to read your descriptions of the cats' characters, walks and sounds. And I hope for a small miracle so that you won't have to say goodbye again so very soon.

*hugs you and the cats tightly*

What a caring reply, Frodosweetstuff. Thank you. Your cats sound like they've found a lovely home with you. Although it is not likely they will ever become cat-snugglers, they have their own dignity, personality and beauty. And 8 is not old! Our Raoul, the one who is dying, is sixteen and a half, more than twice as old as your cats. I've had many friends that have had cats that lived into their late teens, even to twenty. You will probably have many lovely years together.

What a story about waiting for the test results for your tom. So much worry to go through! Yet what a relief it is when it turns out to be something that can be fixed. Thanks for sharing your story. I hope our Angelo will continue to have the same fixable ailments as the years go by.

Smooches,

Mechtild

At least that must be one consolation for you - that Raoul has reached a very good age for a cat. I've been wondering - have you tried homeopathic remedies for the cats, to make the situation more bearable? I've had good results with Bach flowers.

I do hope that Angelo will be with you for long long years yet!

*hugs tightly*

What are Bach flowers, Frodosweetstuff? I've never heard of them.

I know they say this treatment is no more effective than a placebo but I've used them for our cats and found them helpful. (Dilated with water or vinegar, not alcohol, though).

Thank you. I will look for this when I'm at the health foods store.
