Poor Bobby lived with his brother, Pauley - their sister Candy died last year. Bobby and Pauley were always entwined, or on top of one another, hugging. When they were about 4 mos old, they were the worst adoption I ever made to a very nice family with personal recommendations/references....They came back completely skizzed out, AC had to get them with neck-nooses, which made them spit and cough out blood for about 2 weeks - I was pissed....I was able to hold them upside-down and kiss their tummies when they left here....this was 15 yrs ago - to this day, they have NOT recuperated from their experience!

He was a huge 30lb, 4 ft long cat (not a leukemia cat)! He was 15 1/2 yrs old. He never cried, I could just tell he was uncomfortable. He seemed to have a tooth bothering him from the way he was eating and I took him to a dentist that did high-risk dental work. Sparky had an enlarged heart (no surprise due to his weight). When I took him in for his dental appt. I told the vet that he had not had a BM in a few days. I approved an xray. It revealed he had a mass in his intestines and the cancer had eaten away 2 areas of his intestine. I don't understand how cats can hide their pain so well!! By the way, Sparky had an eating disorder. We tried putting him on the Purina OM diet along with Pebbles (before she was a diabetic) and Sparky did not like it and was not eating enough of it and had liver problems. The vet just told me to let him eat and be happy. If we did not leave food out he would claw our new bed mattress, then eat tissues/toilet paper, lick plastic where he could find it. If you still did not feed him he would toss his stomach bile. I'm fortunate to have had him 15 1/2 years. I still miss him. He's buried in my back yard. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Natalie" <at...@optonline.net> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Wednesday, July 20, 2011 9:10 AM Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Please add Xana to the CLS >I am so sorry, Esther!
