None any more. Unless I count

Favorite Nap Spot:
On a flat cardboard cat scratcher when I'm not in bed. Then above me

Favorite Food:
Since he's a CRF cat, I give him Fancy Feast and Syringe feed him too

Being beautiful, he used to fetch, loudest motor, force petting


Arrival Story:
I got him as a small flea infested kitten from my son's roommate. He was the last of a beautiful litter of Birman kittens to be adopted. Can you imaging that? We later got his half sister, Missy Missy, who is a Tortie Point and extremely fluffy. I will post pics of all 5 of our furry freind soon. But Catbrother is and always will be the true love of my life,

Cat Brother passed peacefully away November 17, 2009 . He battled Cronic Renal Failure gallantly. It was his time to pass over the Rainbow Bridge. He and I will be best friends forever!!! The Mr. Q name was short for his Qualities which I expounded every day to any one who would listen. I never tired of telling people about him!

Forums Motto:
Mr. Q which is short for his qualities

It has been 3 months since Catbrother was diagnosed as in end stage renal failure. He's still with me but eats little except what I syringe feed him twice a day. He's still very loving and I'm grateful for every day we have him with us!

Catbrother diagnosed with Kidney Failure

Catbrother was diagnosed with Cronic Renal Failure(CRF) the first week of June 09. I have loved this cat so much since he was born, it is hard to bear the fact that he will not be with me forever. He's seen me through the death of my father, brother and mother, the roller coaster ride of my marriage and much more.
He's on subQ fluids twice a day and I assist feed him with a syringe to get the calories in him to maintain his weight. He still eats , drinks and is tidy. His care takes a lot of time every day and my husband helps. His last labs were not good, but the vet increases the fluids to 150 ML from 100 and adding another treatment and he's doing well I think. We wil recheck labs on Friday.
I read and read at first, but now I do what comes natural. I love him, care for him and cherish each part of the day he's still here.
We lost our female calico, Catdaughter, 2 1/2 years ago and that loss was great, but she was more my husband Bill's cat than this guy who " loves his Mommy so very much!" Or at least that is the mantra my husband and I sing about him.
I wrote a little song when he was a kitten. Really more of a short poem I sing to him.
It goes like this.... "He loves his Mommy so very much, He's soft and fluffy to the touch, he love's his Mommy, he love's his Mommy. " It's short and dumb but we like it!

He force pets which is to mean he's in your face or lap demanding it. He used to fetch when he was young. He has the loudest 'motor" on earth!
He's the oldest of our five cats and the greatest love I have ever known.
He won't be with me much longer but he will be with me in heart forever and that is a promise!
