Jeanie,

I should have been more clear. Jean is my daughter. I'm just "Grandpa" to the kittens. The vet said it was very hard to diagnose the exact cause or problem, but that was his best guess. But the cat was very bad, and would not make it.

Bob,

Our grand daughter brought him home when he was about 2 months old. He was a stray that had been hit by a car. He wasn't really hurt very much, just shaken. It seems that there is some kind of odd stuff going on. Any time an animal needs help, they wind up at our house or with one one of my kids. It's like they somehow know that if they get into trouble, they should come here for help! Anyhow, here's the pic.

Boy, he really does look like a Shepard. Very pretty color! Sounds like he has a great home.

One quick story. My son's future bride is going to vet school at U of MN. First time she met Helga, she (meaning Helga) was in her puppy jumping stage. Corrie is a very slight girl and Helga was about 70#'s and wanted to play. Corrie was sitting on the floor and put a move on Helga that the WWF would have been impressed by. Helga was flat on her back in Corries lap with the strangest look on her face like "what the h--- was that?" Now they have a mutual respect for each other. When ever Corrie visits Helga lays by her.

Bob,

A word of advice. Don't mess with Corrie! That was an interesting story.

Kittens are doing great so far.

Ed

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about Junior! That makes me sad.

I lost my wonderful cat, Shadow in January to a freak accident. We had switched rooms for the office and the bedroom and I think the furniture didn't have time to settle into the carpet. I had a habit of leaving the dresser drawers open and Shadow liked to sleep in them. We went to the movies one night and she must have jumped in a drawer when there was more than one open and because the dresser hadn't settled, it was off balance and the whole thing fell on top of her. When we got home we found her dead. I had her for 9 years since she was a tiny kitten.It was awful, it really broke my heart... I love animals!

That's really sad about your cat chiquitita. I worry constantly about my cat getting into things and hurting himself.

That's too bad about Shadow. That must have been quite a shock to find something like that.

Yes it was very traumatic. I still have trouble with it now and then it sneaks up on me. Such a strange thing to have happen when I feel I take good care of my animals compared to many people I know. I mean, I kept her inside so she wouldn't get hit by a car and she got killed by my dresser. It is rediculous.

I'm afraid you'll have a big fight on your hands trying to get one of those away from my daughter!
