Likes to chat with the outside cats. He loves to Play "Fighty Bitey "and "You can't catch me but I can chew your feet!"

Favorite Food:
Turkey Turkey and more turkey. One day he'd like to eat a live one.

He can see thru walls with his Heat seeking turkey-vision (or is it Turkey seeking heat vision)


Arrival Story:
He arrived in a paper bag with the words "Take him or he's going to the pound" I said I'd find a home for him. I did. Mine.

He has no fangs. He hates the outside yet has the need to sneak out from time to time. He's named Pen because I was tired of calling him "get down" or "Shhhhhsh" or Oh jeez you scared me" so I put him on the floor and told him the next thing he goes to is his name. He walked over to a pen on the floor and played with it. (he's lucky . If I waited a few more minutes it could have been catbox)

Pen got sick all of the sudden. He had what looked like an abcess but in reality was a tumor. It grew rapidly and within a matter of two days it went from a small swelling on his lower lip to his entire jaw. There was nothing they could do. He lost weight from being a healthy 10 pounds to less than five almost instantly. Even though he was suffering he still would climb into bed and sleep at my side. His last few days he began to sleep wedged up at my side. Something he hadn't done since he was a kitten. He still had an apitite but eating was very painful and he would wince at every bite and claw his face to remove in an attempt to remove the painful jabs happining within. I took him in yesterday morning. He passed in my arms. He was more than just a cat to me. He was my best friend. I was diagnosed years ago with a life threatning illness. The doctor at the time told me I may live five years. I fell into a deep depression and became self destructive. I was an alcoholic drug addict that felt like my soul had left me and my body was left empty. I just wanted my body to catch up to my soul. I had no reason to wake up nor any desire to. Pen pulled me out of that state. He was my reason to continue. I had to make sure he was going to be ok.
He saved my life. The doctor was wrong. I've been living ten plus years with this condition and to date I have yet to show any major symptoms. This would not have been possible without the love and caring of this little kitty. He was my family. To say I miss him is an understatment.

Rest in Peace

See ya on the other side

Last week I lost a tooth. It hurt like hell. I got a nasty infection from it so the human took me to the hospital. My mouth is all swollen. Turns out the swelling is not from the tooth but a tumor. My kidneys are failing too. The doctor told me I have about two weeks. I wanted to say thank you to all the kittys that have been my friend. I wish you all the best.
My human is making sure I am comfortable but I cant close my mouth too well and I'm very drooly. I have antibiotics to help with the tooth infection so that pain will subside soon.

I've had a good life and would not change a thing.

I'm returning to the hospital next week. I suspect it will be for the last time.

My human is a wreck. I'm trying to let him know it is ok but I'm weak and can only put my paw on his. It seems to make him worse.

It'll be ok.

I'll see ya all in time.

Human is good:
Human feeds me.
Human Human feeds me.

Human is Bad:
Human takes me to the vet where the dirty Vet takes my temperture. That vet is a pervert.
Human sticks me with needles and fills me up with some sort of fluid. I look like a damn furry hot water bottle.
Human has refused on mutiple repeated requests to feed me turkey or a fresh whole chicken.
Human continues to feed me "no- Protein" food that appears to be made in... get this... CANADA!
Human won't leve me alone and keeps asking if I'm ok.
Human wont let me clean myself in my own time he says i'm getting knots in my fur. So what? I like em! The Human keeps trying to brush them out then he cuts them out and keeps threatening mw with "A BATH" whatever that is.
