Arrival Story:
I lived near the NJ shore, and there is very little to do in the winter. One winter day, I thought it would be nice to go to the local shelter and give out some hugs and kisses to all the little kitties who didn't have homes. Needless to say, I think I should stay out of the shelters before I become "the crazy cat lady."

He was seven or eight months old when I got him in February. The family that brought him to the shelter did not give a reason for surrendering him, only that they could no longer keep him. I know that some people only like kittens. In some cases, when kittens start to grow into adult cats, they often get surrendered to shelters. In even worse cases, people who rent properties at the shore for the summer have been known to go to shelters and "rent a pet" for the summer, as well. Most of them leave the animal in the rented property after they've returned home for the season. The realtors take them to the shelters after they find them left in the home. I'm glad Mozart's family took him to a shelter so he could get a second chance.

...On my Rainbow Bridge day. Mommy just sent a little whisper my way and told me I might be seeing my brother, Hannibal, very soon. She said something about skin cancer, and that she will be doing everything she can to make him comfortable until it's his time to cross The Bridge. Please keep my brother and my mommy in your thoughts during this difficult time.


The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then will you do what must be done?
For this, the last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
But don't let grief then stay your hand.
For on this day, more than the rest,
your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You would not want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me to where my needs they'll tend.
Only stay with me until the end.
And hold me firm and speak to me
until my eyes no longer can see.
I know in time you will agree
it is a kindness you do for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
from pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
who has decided this thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years.
Don't let your heart hold anymore tears.

Thanks so much for everyone's support, thoughts and purrs. It means a lot to me and my little family, especially Mozart. The metronidazole has reduced the vomiting, but not the diarrhea. Although I was told to wait until I was no longer giving to metronidazole to start the prednisolone, there are no contraindications for giving both concurrently. I started the prednisolone tonight with the hope that it will reduce Moazart's discomfort. I will try and update weekly, as time and fate allow. Please know, fellow Catsters, and the company who runs this site, that this community is what has always helped all of us survive and thrive in an environment that can only be described as incredibly supportive. Without the support of those who truly care, we are not living up to our true identities as humans and cat guardinas. Thanks to all who are there with us through this most difficult journey.
