in fact patches was spoiled rotten not just by me but by tigger lol. I don't think he learned how to bathe himself until he was 6 YEARS old(yes, I said years). but even up until shortly before tigger went over the bridge all patches had to do was walk up and plop down on the floor in front of tigger and she'd bathe him. she was almost 14 and he was 12. so i'm sure she'll take good care of blackie too

I bet blackie, tigger, and patches are all playing together. tigger wasn't actually related to patches but she turned from playful kitten to a motherly role just a couple weeks after he moved in. she bathed him and let him have the spot he wanted next to me.

the vet I use now..well the one molly and dusty use, I don't use her lol, is wonderful, really smart and caring. when patches had his stroke I took him there. I thought it was a stroke but I wasn't sure. the vet checked him out told me(I don't remember what wording she used but it was very caring sounding) she told me if I wanted to I could take him to a specialist who would do MRI, CT scan and probably $10,000 worth of tests....or since he already had diabetes for several years, at that moment couldn't move either limb on the left side of his body, his head was shaking back and forth and he wouldn't respond to his name like he had always done. I chose for him to be helped to the meadow so he wouldn't suffer anymore but also that he had lived a good life of 16 years. lots of smooches, lots of hedbonks, lots of nip-sqwerls pounced on and lots of kitteh nose prints on my windows.

so that whole time she had cancer and was in pain and that's why she was drooling because it hurt too much to swallow and that's why she lost a bunch of weight. i don't know how much she lost but it was a good amount. but the fact she was in pain for over 4 months bothered/bothers me still. they just kept giving me more antibiotics for her and wouldn't see her. i kept asking about bringing her in and they said they didn't need to see her. i'm still very mad at myself. i should have taken her to another vet for a second opinion because i knew she did't bite on an electrical cord. i should have taken her to another vet for another exam just to make sure. she'd just started with that vet anyway, it was only her second time seeing him. :*(

ok...tigger...I saw that she was drooling a little bit and there was a blackened area on her tongue one day. so I took her to the vet. he said she bit an electrical cord. I insisted she didn't because I had her since she was 8 weeks old and she was almost 14 then and it was not her personality. yes, I know it was still possible but just wasn't the way she acted. molly and dusty, I would bet money they WOULD bite a cord. anyway, he said she did and he scraped the black area off and gave me some liquid antibiotics to give to her for 2 weeks. tigger had been on steroids as an itty bitty and various antibiotics here and there for UTI or respiratory infections so she hated taking meds. so everyday twice a day it was a wrestling game between me and tigger leaving both of us upset, and me crying. all just to get the antibiotics in her. after 2 weeks she was drooling not only as much but a little more than before. i called the vet. they said something like give it a week. then they gave me another liquid antibiotic for her, a different kind but still twice a day for 2 weeks so more crying for me and more of both tigger and i upset. tigger wouldn't sleep in bed with me. she was drooling more and more, loosing weight. (i might be getting the details wrong such as she probably started losing weight after the first antibiotic? this happened back in 2009) i called them again and told them she was drooling still and they gave me a third antibiotic for her. by this time she didn't want me petting her, she would run away from me and hide under my bed. she associated me with getting wrapped up in a towel(immobilized) and having yucky stuff squirted into her mouth and then her mouth held shut until she swallowed. she didn't want me coming near her. that made me cry even more! i felt like i had to get the antibiotics in her though, she was losing so much weight, drooling so much that when she tried to eat dry food it would end up all soggy. patches would walk up to it and then turn and look at me after sniffing the food. then finally i took a picture of tigger huddled under my bed with drool hanging down to the floor and showed it to the vet tech and they said bring her in at *whatever* time today(i don't remember the exact time). i did and the vet said when he looked at her tongue that it "is very likely she has tongue cancer"

somehow I got into a conversation with furgy about molly jumping up on places and I told her about molly jumping on top of the kitchen cabinets when she was about a year old and tearing the wallpaper off the walls... here's a picture http://cheezburger.com/6095121664 I forgot to caption it before I clicked on it. I thought it was click on it to be able to caption it. ooops

Glad you liked ATM LOL! I agree with you that it is sad that there are so many kittehs (and goggies!) in need of a home. Here is Australia, the RSPCA (Royal Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals) have so many cats and dogs needing a home that they have been marked down! I hope no one tells them that they're on sale, they might be offended, aifinkso!

nope tigger, patches, molly, dusty....none of them wake up for fud. well at least that I can remember. I dont' remember tigger or patches doing it when they were itty bitties. tigger was about 2 weeks shy of being 2 years old when patches adopted me, so before that she was an only child. when she was itty bitty if I got up to the bathroom she'd go use the litterbox which was in the bathroom and then go back to bed with me. it was so cute up until the point where she went to the bathroom in the bed because I slept through the night. because I didn't get up, she didn't get up. she had to stay in bed with me. she'd also bring a couple of her toys that she could grab with her mouth, up into the bed when it was bedtime. lol she was such a silly, silly, sweet little girl. makes me even angrier how she died. I admit she wasn't sweet to vets and wasn't even sweet to me when I had to give her yucky medicine but she was just scared. anyway, when patches first arrived tigger tried to maintain dominance by sleeping up near the head of the bed/my head. well, patches slept up at the head of the bed on the other side of me. he was my snugglemuffin who was funny withouth trying

Thanks for asking about Suzie. She is fine now, and the infection that she had in the wound is now gone. She alternates between play time and cuddle time, as all kittehs should. I have never seen her chase her tail! Maybe she did when she was a kitten. Do you think that you will adopt a kitteh soon? I bet you are a great cat dad!

here's how dusty has me trained: i'll be working in the kitchen and he'll peek around the corner. i'll say "hi dusty!" and he'll run off. or i'll blow him a kiss and he'll run off. but if i say "do you want a cookie?(our word for treat)" he'll run all the way in and squeak(he still sounds like a kitten at 1 1/2 years old) meep meep!" i think he's saying yes maam or yes mommy! so i get the cookies out and hand them out to him and molly(who runs up. i'm not sure if she's running up to hearing me say cookie(she knows the word too, all of my kittehs had/have been taught it) or hearing the bag shake, or to what dusty says). so now he gets me to do this whenever i'm doing dishes or whatever in the kitchen. if i just go in there quick for a glass of water it doesn't happen, i have to spend a little time in there
