    A happy day for JavaJo and the saddest for AJane...

    Your new dog sounds so cute, JavaJo. I hope he brings much happiness to your family. And Candor, your dog is very sweet! Thanks for sharing a picture!

    AJane, my heart goes out to you. It is the saddest day when you lose a loved animal. Especially for your children. That makes it even harder on you, I am sure. Keep those good memories close, they should help.

    Yeah, he sleeps a lot. Believe it or not, but he came to our home at 3 pm yesterday and he's already using the pee pads. He only had one accident on the floor today and luckily, it was in the kitchen where there is tile. He has these huge feet and he's always tripping over them. It's so cute to watch. My son took him to his uncles house tonight to show him off and my old boy cried. He was wailing when the puppy went out the door. He didn't relax until they were back home And here we were worried that he wouldn't take to him. Pfft.

    Its so nice the older one likes him. Mine had a wee fit( literally) I had to take him to the Vet, he was sort of acting like he had eaten something poisonous. Turned out it was stress and anxiety He didn't like the new kid at all.Now they are inseparable

    I'm so sorry, AJane. Like Paul said, it's the most selfless thing we can do...and the toughest. We know that's what we sign up for when we bring that tiny kitten home, but it's still gut-wrenching.

    Re: For animal lovers

    I'm so excited!!!! I think I'm getting a Bengal cat today! I've been trying to find a kitten for a friend whose cat died. In our area it is next to impossible to find kittens. They just don't exist. If you get a lead or see an ad in the paper, by the time you call, they're all gone. When I've had kittens in the past, people snap them up and beg for more. My one good queen disappeared about a month ago leaving me with one female who had a litter a year ago but none since. I think there just aren't any unfixed males in the area. Minerva (McGonagall) is a tabby with a gorgeous gold undercoat and a large orange spot on the back of her head. Some of you may remember me obsessivelly posting pictures of her as my avatar about a year and a half ago. So in the search for a female for my friend, I heard of this Bengal litter. By the time I called them, they only had one male left and I said I'd take it. I'm thinking baby daddy for my girl, but if he has problems with spraying, I'll fix him. He'll be mostly an indoor cat. I understand they are very active and extremely intelligent, and I think I'm up for the challenge. Wish me luck with the two getting along. I think Minerva is lonely. This time last year I had a dog and 3 cats.

    That makes me very sad to read....

    He has been licking it a lot.... and from the looks of the cut... the cut appears small-ish in size... but the blood has hardened in his fur... so I'm not really sure if there is another cut. He has let me pet him again... but when I go near the cut... he moves away quickly.

    He loves being combed.... though only part of him is nice and fluffy. In a not sooooo funny way... he looks quite funny. *winks*
