This is what I did with the hole in my heart after Squeaky died. I had lived with him (22 yo) longer than anyone but my mother ( I adopted him when he was 8). I imagined there were others out there who needed me. I was in no way ready. In fact after Squeaky died I told the vet to take all my

Right. Weird for a person (which I didn't know they were doing!), but seems right for my Monkee. Plus, it's just a portion of the cremains- they only need 1-2 tablespoons (I hate writing even that though- sounds horrible!). But this is all new to me. I just like the idea of having a part of him

My Polly Go Lighty is a polydactyl tuxie girl... Does your poly drink w/ his / her fronts paws? Polly likes to scoop the water up from the bowls. She also likes it very clean. She will sit in front of the water bowl and mew @ me until I change it. I think she just drinks w/ her toes to

Glenda, Too bad you're not taking any more kitties :) My mom has a poly named Sunny. She's probably four years old or so. I never knew that was the technical name for them--we've always called them mitten paws. We used to joke that this happened from all the pesticides/herbicides in the water.

Melissa, Some days are harder than others. It cannot be easy taking care of a bunch of kitties, becoming a mother, in this day and age, dealing with family that depend on your support ,but seem not to be able to offer you any support when you need it. Something tells me you are a lot younger
