From then until the end she always saw him and barked Mark.
    That is too cute. My old boss had a cat that could say her name, Mary. He would only say it when he wanted her attention, too.

    VET: She’s (Mona) not as stressed

    Mona’s Daddy: She’s been doing better, getting combative etc…

    VET: I am giving you enough pills for another 14 days beyond the current prescription. Would you like to try a “pet piller”?

    Mona’s Daddy: Sure! – I’ll try anything. But again I’d rather you send someone to do this for me – I’ll pay pay pay.

    Vet: *Laughs* we’ll see you in 2 weeks for X-Rays of her lung, because they wouldn’t show clearing up this quickly.

    Mona’s Daddy: Okey Dokey *watching Mona now HEADBUTTING the carrier door to get INTO the carrier since the exam is over.

    VET: Oh she’s ready to go home.

    Note: On the way out – there is a cat that lives there who could be Joey’s twin. Mona looked at him HISSED and growled. Everyone chuckles: oh she’s getting better.


    THAT Is great news. Doing the happy dance for you and Mona.

    I have to tell you that when I was HUGELY pregnant, our dog was sick and the vet that treated her of course, knew my parents, etc. small town, blah, blah, blah. They SENT a tech over to my house to get a blood sample and drop off medications for our Annie and never charged us extra for it. I was absolutely flabbergasted as MY doctor wouldn't do that for me.

    So does the piller work???? Why didn't they offer that to you in the first place?

    Like I said...it's all about location.

    I don't know why I'm enjoying the "pilling" stories so much, but I am. gabriel I'm so glad Mona's feeling better.
    Count your blessings!

    I think they did with Joey a few years back but I decided it was more work, and I'm still not sure that it isn't more work. I have one very PEED off Tabby.

    Cat "walking" story as mentioned in did you know thread:
    Before I had Joey, when Mona was about 1 1/2 years old, I decided it would be nice for her to be able to go for walks (instead of just watching the trucks etc., from the windows which she loves so much to do) I bought a harness and a leash, put in on her with no resistance. Picked her up carried her outside and put her down. *SNIFF SNIFF* at the sidewalk, ok honey come on, walk 4 steps sit down, *sniff sniff* the grass, look around. Get up 10 minutes later walk 4 steps LAY DOWN, *sniff sniff* the sidewalk. Come on sweety lets go... Get up walk about 6 steps see truck coming down the street - pulling on lease to get to the truck and see what it's all about. Go about 4 steps sit down... It took us TWO HOURS to go a HALF city block. This was the first & LAST time a cat got walked in my domain.

    The place where we go camping has a lot of cats on leashes. I guess if you want to take your cat camping, that's the way to go. I tend to think cats are happier at home with a big bowl of water and food and a fresh load of kitty litter.

    I tend to think the same thing Gutmutter - we are spiritual buddies

'beef,' 'steak,' and 'porkchops!'
    Not to bring up an ancient history topic (in the Animal Lover's thread, no less!) but I've found a photo of Sugar doing the "whining" thing I mentioned above!

    ...And the strange boy continued to weave in and out of her life, leaving her with a sense of wonder and amazment, but also, a feeling of loss, knowing that life might never be the same again.
