Gray Tabby

Favorite Toy:
catnip anything

Favorite Nap Spot:
He loved to drape across his human parents

Favorite Food:
He really liked salmon and corn

He could smile and rather than "meow", he would complain; he was a champion at being a charmer and he sat in bed with us when we were sick

Arrival Story:
When we were new to our neighborhood in Sacramento, my daughter went to visit the next door neighbors and came home with a 6 month-old kitty, who became TouchNot.

TouchNot was, from the beginning, an old cat. He didn't do kitten things, and he would "m'gow" instead of "meow". He was a very confident and personable kitty who loved nothing better than a warm lap. He was a part of our lives for 19 3/4 years and is greatly missed. When he was diagnosed with chronic renal failure at 18 years old, we treated him at home for 18 months with fluids, herbs and supplements and epogen for his anemia. We also had two wonderful vets and a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner on our treatment team (see photos of TouchNot waiting his turn at the vet's and getting his acupuncture and moxa treatments on this page). He was well cared for and loved til the end. He is currently hanging out with his brothers Nigel and Schedoni in the constellation Leo, but he and his Rainbow brothers will be visiting us in the night sky during the November Leonid showers.
