Good luck with your kitty, I hope she's feeling better soon! jmc

Today, finally, four days after the surgery, Tania is EATING AND DRINKING. I think I have my Tania back, alive and sort of well..

She has a nice soft half-inflated pro-collar for a pillow, she is herself again, eating, drinking and loving, and being my friend again. I have my friend back. Oh JOY! This has been horrible, but I think I have my friend back. I am starting to feel happy again.

All I can do is kiss, cuddle and love her.. Oh joy! Tania seems to be back.
Eleven more days, and she can have her stitches and collar removed. This calls for a cruise south to warmer climes!!

Your residence is the whole world, just like it is for us on the Internet.

es Mark, but with that physical component intact. Tania is my connection with physical reality. She is on the mend!!!

I know what you mean. For a long time my Siamese Fighting Fish was my contact with the real world. Now it is my adolescent female cat, "Avalanche." I don't really contact human beings that much either but when it happens, it makes up for lost time.
Glad your cat is doing better.
Where are you docked now?

Mill Basin Brooklyn NY. The Marina behind the Kings Plaza Mall. Bob

I know that area. It's cold there this time of year. I'd be docked in Miami or somewhere further south. ;-)

I think Tania is going to be my last animal companion. I am 62, and I don't believe it's fair for a pet to outlive it's person..

You have no family or friends who would take a cat should something happen to you? Even if you left it in your Will that they would be paid until the pet died? As soon as we move I'm going to cover our cats in my Will. I'm older than you are and it's occurred to me something can happen at any time. But even young people die of accidents and disease or become disabled. It's comforting to know your pets will not end up in a kill-Shelter should you no longer be able to care for them. Most likely mine would go to my son.

Get a dynasty of gerbils or hamsters.
It's hard to outlive those.

You're right about that - those guys are lucky to live more than a year or so. I used to also have pet mice when I was in high school, which were kept in a room away from the cats, of course. Those little babies never lived very long, but they were lots of fun. Not as much fun as cats, though. Nothing can replace a purring cat.

Unfortuately for me, I loved both gerbils and cats at the same time. You can surely guess what happened to the gerbils. Emotion: smile
