    You are a sweetie and I miss seeing your posts. Oh, and the kitties all say hello.

    Hi again ... I will answer you soon -- I got sidetracked by a horrible poster who decided to mutilate his kitten by "declawing" him (i.e. amputating part of his toes). Sometimes it's really hard to read what people do to the animals who depend on them.

    Hi, you. It's still incredibly hard to be without Eini -- I still have SO many moments when it hits me again that HE IS GONE and I just lose it completely. Honestly, I think it has hit me so hard because he was so young and it was so unexpected -- I really thought I would have 10 or more years with him so losing him has just been so, so painful. I know you understand, and I love you for being so supportive and wonderful.

    Just wanted to wish you, Dennis, and all the babies a very happy Thanksgiving. I am very thankful for C-D friends like you.

    part 2 ...

    It's hard, as you can imagine, not knowing exactly what is going on. As long as he keeps demanding treats, which he basically does every time I walk into the kitchen and he hears the refrigerator door open , I have hopes that it is not something deadly-serious.

    So how are you doing? I know you've had the recent losses ... I haven't lost a kitty since 2010 and I want to go at least another 8-10 years without one of those horrible things ...

    I need to take Quinn in for a dental. How did your elderly, fat, grumpy kitty do? (Your description made me laugh! )

    Sending many (((hugs))) back to you ... now I have to get back to teaching stuff! (Darn work! )

    Hello, my sweet friend! Thanks for asking about Eini. I haven't posted another update because there's not much to say -- he is still hangin' in there. Still eating (HEARTILY!!), drinking, using the litter box, cuddling, etc. -- all wonderful signs, of course. BUT he is STILL off-balance and his head is still very tilted. I have moved his head with my hand and it's definitely not painful to him at all -- i.e. it doesn't seem to be a permanent head tilt, if that makes sense, where something has happened to his neck, but rather he is tilting his head for balance? Which makes me think it IS some kind of infection that is affecting his balance (as you suggested a long time ago!). I took him in for a 2nd 2-week injection -- wanted to get more meds into him before re-doing his blood work, since I had such a hard time pilling him. I may ask the vet to give him a 3rd 2-week injection before the blood work, if that's "allowed."

    [end of part 1 ... too long ...]

    Candace, that photo got to me again ...

    We love ALL our kitties, of course (how could we not?), but some are really extra-special, aren't they? And Tiggy sounds like one of those.

    I am crazy-busy (again!!!) this week (lots of "extra" grading of papers & exams) but will write more later. I hope you are having a wonderful week.
