Mancat Monday: Remembering Cupcake

Cupcake, Forever Loved

Some of you might remember that our dear friend, Rachel, lost her kitty, Maxie, earlier this year.  

Rachel also takes care of a feral colony.  She does a great job of taking care of them, and the ferals are lucky to have her.  

One of her ferals went to the Rainbow Bridge last week.  

Cupcake was an independent mancat who liked to wander around.  He loved his ginger kitty "brothers" (though not from the same litter), and he used to cuddle with them.  Cupcake also used to play and cuddle with Peri, another kitty in the feral colony.  

We will all miss Cupcake.  I never met him, but I felt like I got to know him through Rachel's messages and letters to me.  He seemed like a special guy. 

Run free, sweet Cupcake!

Lita's Vet Visit - An Update

Lita is in her cat carrier at the vet's office.
Hi everyone, it's the Mom today with an update on Lita.

As some of you know, Lita made her way to the vet yesterday.  Thank you to all who left purrs and prayers for her on Facebook - we appreciate the support very much!

I decided to take Lia to the vet because she has not been herself for a couple of weeks.  She is spending a lot of time under the dresser, and she is not as enthusiastic about food as she usually is.  She's usually the first one in the kitchen when I open a can, but there have been times lately where she doesn't even bother moving from where she is when she hears a can open.

Given her serious respiratory issues, I thought it best not to guess about what's bothering her and take her to see Dr. S instead.  

She weighed in at 12.68 pounds.  Dr. S and I agree that while Lita is a little overweight, we would both be happy if she stays at this weight for the rest of her life.  I'm glad we're on the same page about this.  

He gave her a thorough exam.  He said her eyes look great, and her kidneys and thyroid feel just fine.  He said there is some bacteria on her teeth, but he thinks the water additive he's created may help with that (we have some here already because he thought it would help Carmine, too).

Happy Birthday, Jewel!



Today would have been Jewel's 20th birthday.  I have no doubt that she would still be with us, bossing us around, demanding treats, and telling Carmine to get his head out of her cube - if it hadn't been for that evil kidney disease. 

We miss you, everyday, Jewel.  You were such a blessing in our lives.  

We hope you have a most wonderful birthday today at the Bridge and that all our friends there are helping you celebrate!

Happy Birthday, sweet angel!  We love you!!

Carmine, Lita, and the Mom
