I've gained a little weight since I arrived...ok, maybe A LOT of weight but I'm happy.

Arrival Story:
I went to Petsmart on Saturday and he was there in a cage on the bottom shelf. I walked into the cat room and I heard this raspy voiced meow calling me and I looked down and he was looking up at me so intently. I could tell by his face that he's an older cat...he just has that weathered look. I know that a cat his age has a slim chance of finding a home. They named him Mr Magoo for whatever reason but I decided to change his name to something more fitting. They say he's 11 or 12 years old and I think he deserves to live out his days in comfort. Animal control brought him in so there's no telling how long he's been out there. He loves to be pet, he follows me around everywhere and he even sits with me on the couch and he's only been in the house for about 3 hours.

Bio:
I looked him up online last night and then I went to the Humane Society today and spent some time with him before I decided to adopt him. Everyone there was surprised that I picked him over all the younger ones but they were happy that he got a home though too. On the ride home, all he did was meow and talk my ear off. I think he knew that this car ride was different than all the others he's taken recently.

Second Chances


1 Year Bridge Anniversary

I can't believe it's already been a year since Snow died. I miss him and still can't believe he's gone. I miss you Snow. You were my buddy and were always by my side. Things just aren't the same without you. Hoping you're enjoying your time at the bridge and that we'll be together again some day. Love you Snow! Until we meet again...

 

Crossed the bridge today 4 Feb 2012

Snow crossed the bridge this morning. He's lost a lot of weight this last year. Still ate like a horse though. He always slept on the bed with me and he purred when he slept. The last few days he distanced himself from me so I'm not sure when he stopped eating. Then yesterday around 1am, I got up to go to the bathroom. Before I turned the light out, Snow walked around to the other side of the bed and squeezed himself in between the wall and the night stand and laid out under the night stand. I knew right then that his time was near. Had I not seen him go under there, I might not have found his body for awhile which really un-nerved me.

I put Snow in my bathroom so I knew where he was. He drank some water from time to time but he had no interest in food. He was extremely restless too. He'd lay down for awhile and then he'd get up and go lay somewhere else. I held him in my lap this morning for a little bit and talked to him and loved on him. He knows he was loved. I had a bunch of errands to run this morning but when I came home around noon, he had already crossed the bridge. I know he didn't like me fussing over him and he waited until I was gone before he crossed. I know he didn't want me crying all over him. With his trying to hide, I knew he wanted to go in peace. I just hope his passing was quick.

He knew he finally had a home to call his own and he was loved. I know he loved me too. I will always remember his little raspy meow that day I saw him at Petsmart, almost 3 years ago. My life is definitely better for having him share the rest of his life with me. Things just won't be the same without him. I miss his purr and I miss his face rubs against mine. His eyes were like no others I'd ever seen before...He'd look at me and I swear he knew exactly what I was saying to him.

Snow was my buddy and will always have a special place in my heart. Adopting him was the best thing I could have done. He showed me that senior cats are grateful and he showed me all the time. I just wish I had more time with him. He was my Snow Buddy and will be deeply missed. I love you Snow! Rest in peace, my buddy, and I'll see you at the bridge some day. Love and kisses always!

 

Need some suggestions

Mom took me to the vet yesterday because I've been lethargic and I have blood in my stools. I don't travel well and my nerves got the best of me and I left every kind of sample you can imagine in mom's car...both on the way to the vet and on the way home. Oops.

The vet did a fecal exam and didn't find anything and they did an x-ray and all they could see was the massive amounts of food still in my body. So, they think I'm constipated...which mom know's I'm not. My stools are rather soft and regular. But, she was told to give me some laxatone every day for a week.

The big problem is mom was told she has to keep my separated from the rest so mom can keep an eye on my bowel movements. The only place she can put me is in the guest bathroom. I go balistic when I'm confined to small spaces and I start clawing everything trying to get out. So, I'm still roaming free in the house.

The other issue is that I gained almost 4 pounds in 3 months. I went from 12.6 to 16.3. Mom was told I need to go on a diet. How is she gonna do that when there's 19 other cats in the house. The food is out 24/7 cuz mom would be attacked and eaten otherwise.

So, there's those 2 major problems and we need some advice. Can anyone offer any suggestions?
