    RIP, Little Kitty; I'm glad you did the right thing, Star.

    What an incredible story Star, thanks for sharing. Unk, it sounds like a new door opened for you at the time. So many things do happen for a reason in life!

    Re: For animal lovers

    Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes. Its all so weird around here today. I haven't lived without a cat since I was about 5 years old, with the exception of one semester of college. I don't know what to do with myself without a cat around. I've had my pets die before, obviously, but I always had a second cat at the time. This is just bizarre. I keep looking for Little Kitty at my feet or watching for her when I pull in the driveway (she was an indoor/outdoor cat). If it were just me, I'd probably run out to get another cat today so I can start getting to know another interesting cat personality. This is the first pet death my kids have really experienced, though (my daughter was too young when my last cat died and my step-kids have only experienced a mouse death). So I don't want them to think that you can just replace a pet like a broken plate or something. So I'm going to wait at least a couple weeks to give them time to properly grieve. My husband already knows what he wants to name a new cat. Bon Jovi, of all things. He's not even a Bon Jovi fan, he just thinks its a funny name. I told him we'll have to discuss that one.

    Star,

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My Chaucer died of the very same thing, but he was a lot older and, at the end, I had to give him fluids like Unk did with his prior cat. The good thing about the CRF is that I am now super aware of watching out for the early signs of it - inceased thirst, especially. I noticed it with muy current cat a year after I adopted him. So far, he is still borderline CRF and is doing very well. We caught it in time and he gets the wet KD (kidney diet) food. Cats can't live on crunchies, alone. They really need the mositure that the wet food provides.
    I think it's great that the FORT was able to bring you together with Unk so that he could adopt Laurel and Hardy.
    So many good things do happen on this board, don't they?

    Star, I'm so sorry about your cat. I remember clearly following the saga here of Unk adopting her kittens from you.

    One of our cows had her calf this afternoon. My sons girlfriend got to see it. First time she's seen a calf being born, so she was thrilled. The mama isn't very friendly with us so I had to zoom, but I got a couple of pretty good pictures.
