I don't have anything to play with!

Best kitty on the planet.
This is Terry (terror-on-paws back in the day). He'll be 15 in October. Poor guy had a huge lump on his neck yesterday, and I was so worried it was going to be the Big 'C'. We've got angels though, and it turned out to be an abcess--an uncommon occurance that resulted from a puncture wound (he and "That Baby" play too rough. After all, That Baby just turned one, so he doesn't know any better). Anyway, over $300 later (and I think the vet cut this poor girl some slack), but he's going to be fine. When I first got Terry, I asked my boyfriend at the time to get me a kitten. I asked for a gray, long-haired, female kitten. For Valentine's Day, here was Terry in a red bow, but a black, short-haired, male, and four months old! Read that again. Everything is the opposite! Just the most amazing, friendly, angel in a cat's body. I hope I'm graced with several more years of his presence. Poor guy has already been through two life-threatening urinary tract infections, a stint with starvation because he hated Science Diet, and a thyroid problem that requires daily medication. But for an old man he's doing just fine. Posted by Picasa

Glad to hear your kitty is ok....

And yes he does look like he needs a new toy or two.... Poor guy has nothing to play with.

Oh Barb, that is such a cute pose! Topsy has a box full of bits and pieces that she looks at now and then, but unless I actually get something out myself, and throw it in her direction, she doesn't take any interest. But you should see her with a chicken wing. She throws it up in the air and tries to catch it...Ken and I have never seen anything like it! As if she is pretending the piece of dead chicken is still alive, and she needs to kill it before eating it!! Weird cat...
