Kitty Kitty.

Well I usually try to blog a least once a week, It gives me a chance to gab to thin air. However lately I have been busy. You see my cat Tiger my faithful companion that never left my side through the foot surgeries and the crypto and the gallbladder surgery, kept me company while I was recovering. I remember many times being in pain and he come and lay right next to me and I would pet him and it would make me feel better it would take the pain away.

He was acting funny about a week ago like maybe he had eaten something that he shouldn't have. He was sick to his stomach and was lazier than usual. I took him to the Vet and to my surprise it was not what I had expected. All of you that have a cat should know what I didn't.

Tiger was diagnosed with FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitits) it is fatal disease that effects only cat by the progression of the disease he was either born with it or was infected with it at the shelter. Animal shelters are were they usually get it but is very contagious and your cat can be infected by drinking out of an infected cats water dish, coming in contact with an infected cats liter box or just playing with an infected cat.

Right now he seems to be OK, he is on an oral antibiotic with is clearing up the infection in his intestinal tract. However he will always be sick he will never get better fluid will continue to fill his abdomen and then his lungs until it is difficult for him to breathe. We will at that time put him to sleep.

So my wish for this Christmas, when I look under my tree this is what I would like to see.

We finally named our snake. We thought Jaws was an appropriate name for the little guy!

Frosty Melted : (

Joshy's Frosty the Snowman melted in the rain yesterday, and is he still mourning the lost of his snow friend. I told him that it would snow again and we would be able to build a new one. He is not convinced.

As the song says "as he waved goodbye, saying don't you cry. I'll be back again someday."
