Arrival Story:
Goodnight Sweet Prince: MACK passed away at home on Feb 21, 2009 at 10:30am. No vets, no needles. He is a late victim of the Toxic Pet Food scandal, but we had spent untold amounts of resources keeping him functioning and for the most part, happy. Unfortunately, his fragile health was damaged by negligent vet care: he was incorrectly given doses of an extremely dangerous drug he was not supposed to be given. ARRIVAL STORY 13.5 years ago: Actually, he became my guardian. Bought him at a pet store. I picked him up when his eyes just opened. He fit in the palm of my hand. Wished I knew what the pet store did with his brother as I wanted both to stay together. When I need a hug, he knows it and demands I pick him up so he can give me one. His little arms around my shoulders. He kisses by pressing his little nose on my hand, three times, the same way I kiss his head.

Mackie is very photogenic. People love to look at his pictures; his personality just shines through, he has a thousand magical expressions.

2008 News:
2008 Update: MACK NEEDS PRAYERS. He is very ill, the CRF has gotten to him. He has lost 5 pounds, and is fading. He is alive by sheer force of his will only. Thanks to all his feline friends. 2007 News: I survived the Great Poisoned Pet Food Attack in 2007. Thanks to my Daddy and Mommy and ITCHMO forums, and ORIJEN KIBBLE which helped heal me. I eat lots of different human prepared and store bought foods - I get bored easily!

I didn't think Mack would make it to Thanksgiving, and I don't know if he'll make it to 2009. But one thing I do know, the state of vettery is abysmal.
