Arrival Story:
My dad saved me and my sister when we were tiny little kittens. We both coud fit in the palm of his hand and he fed us with an eye dropper. He did such a good job that I decided to stay. He introduced me to my mum very soon after and she was a cat person. Now mum and I are inseparable - though she does say it would be nice to be able to sit down occassionally without me climbing up.

Wow! That was over 20 years ago! I've had 4 kittens. Alas, only Penny is still with us! I just wish she would move out. What is it with kids these days, they just won't get a place of their own. I love lap time, I hate having to go out, except to sit in the sun. I use to love to run around and climb trees, but stiff hips make that a bit difficult these days, it is hard enough climbing onto the couch for a snooze...

I'm not big on diary entries from the Rainbow Bridge but I just had to send a big thank you to my furriend Scooter (

Scooter is one of the administrators of the Olde Furts group on Catster and recently redecorated their main page. Such skill, such talent.... It looked fantastic.

Then, I had a closer look.

OMC! there I was with my daughter Penny in the banner! So flattering!

Thank you Scootie!

Mr Skins passed away today at 20.75 years of age. She had been off colour for a few days and went to the vet to get checked out.

On investigation Mr Skins was discovered to have many fractues in her top jaw with malignant cancer.

She passed away peacefully.

Thank you to all her catster friends for making her last days so much fun.

She will be missed.

Mr Skins mummy.

Do those words send dread through other kitties? I get scared. That happened to me today. My sweet breath following the extraction of my teeth has disappeared. My drool has had drops of blood, and my breath (as daddy puts so indelicately) smells like feces!

Mummy could probably have tolerated poor mouth odour, but I've also been a bit off my food and water. In fact I've lost 300gm over the last 3 weeks. Not good for an old furt who is underweight normally anyway.

So, once more I got prodded and proked. The news wasn't too good.

I have to go back tomorrow for the senior vet to check me out. The vet thinks I may have broken my top jaw somehow due to brittle bones. The smell is from food catching in my gums. I'm dehydrated and may need subcutaneous fluids. Oh for the health of my youth!
