Arrival Story: Finney was a gift to me from my veterinarian. I had lost my beloved soul kitty Alex and was beyond devastated. So depressed I wouldn't eat, my vet called me to the office to "talk". She presented me with this little orange hellion she named Finnegan because he looked Irish to her. Little did we know what a large boy he would become, he was such a peanut when she found him. Someone had abandoned him on the side of the road and when my vet found him, he was covered in fleas and had an upper respiratory infection. She said she would otherwise keep him but couldn't think of a better mom for him than me! So I took him home and now he's one of my two little scamps who run my house.
Bio: Finnegan helps me run my website dedicated to helping kitties with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, pancreatitis, fatty liver and other GI related disorders, http://www.ibdkitties.net/. Finney is thankfully healthy but my previous kitty Alex lost her battle to these diseases. I also have a blog: http://ibdkitties.blogspot.com/

Cat of the week, January 24, 2011
Hi everyone! We've been wanting for awhile now to get onto Catster and tell you what's been happening but of course the stupid fleas prevented us. After I had my toofies done, I came home and was freaking out bad. I was absolutely terrified of mommy, like BAD. Shaking badly, cowering in the corner all the time, it was terrible. I felt like I was losing my mind!
Turned out I was having a very bad reaction to the pain medication. mommy figured that out pretty quickly, called the vet and they said to stop it immediately. Took me a day or two to come out of it but I was fine after that. Since then I've been feeling fantastic.
Of course Lacey was hissing at me for a week after. sheesh. she didn't hiss at me the whole time I was in my drug stupor but as soon as I started coming out of it she was. BRAT! But all is good now. I had 3 toofies pulled. Two of them were already broken off and causing me pain and one of my lower canines was rotting and had to come out.
Lacey wanted me to say thank you to everyone for remembering her birfday. It was a really bad and scary day for us and mommy just couldn't deal with coming on here or trying to. Once I started to feel better mommy gave Lacey a little pawty and we made up for it. so thank you everyone for the love and prezzies from both of us!
OH! and I got a lion cut while I was getting my toofies pulled. I felt really weird for a week and didn't even want to groom myself. I never had one of these before. But I love it now, nice and cool, no hairballs, it's great! thanks again! XXOO
Finnegan's momma here. Please purr hard for him. He's not doing well since his dental yesterday. He had a bad reaction to his pain medication and has not eating since the night before. He's also suffering from paranoia now and is terrified of me. I had to syringe feed him via the vet's advice and he was shaking so bad the entire time like I was going to kill him. I am so distraught right now, this is so awful. I want my boy back! Please purr!
Thanks everyone for helping me celebrate my 7th birfday. Momma is depressed because she does not like me getting older. Not one bit! I can't really help it mommy, jeez. I'll try and stay a baby as long as I can. Mommy says I'll always be her baby boy. I could use some purrs though. Going in for my dental this Monday and they are going to do something to me called a lion cut. ROOOARRR! I always knew I was a big lion. Lacey had her dental last month and she's feeling so great she's been running all over the house like a kitten. So I hope that happens to me. My toofies have a lot of gunk on them. I don't like the vet at all though and I hiss a lot and stuff. Please purr it goes well and I come home with brand new sparkling toofies! Love you all! Miss you! XXOO
