Thank You So Much!!!


This picture is about six months old. That's Twinkle with his best friend and litter-mate Sparkle. Sparkle is the father of all of those little people that they are lounging with. When the Moms would take a break, (there were two Mom's, it was one of those polyamorous cat situations), the boys would step in and keep them warm. Isn't that sweet? Sparkle and Twinkle are Oriental Short Hairs, which really just means ultra Siamese in different colors. They're smart and funny, high strung and delicate, and we love them.

I can't thank you enough for your love and kindness in thinking good thoughts for my dear friend Twinkle. I truly believe that together we worked some kind of amazing miracle. He was as sick looking as my friend Rudy2 who had died before him. He was thin, extremely thin, listless, severely dehydrated, and his eyes were half closed. It happened really quickly just like with my other kitties and I thought it was so cruel that God or the Goddess or the Universe or Mother Earth or whatever force governs it all would take one of my dearest from me. Of all the cats that had to catch this horrible virus why did it have to be Twinkle?

Then when I got to the hospital they said he looked pretty bad and wanted to keep him overnight, then they ran some tests and said they couldn't find anything wrong with him, then they gave him lots of IV fluids and got him to eat and told me that they thought he was just not eating because he had a cold and couldn't smell the food. What??? I'm still not totally certain that this is what's going on. Things have been so iffy, delicate, and scary with my animals lately so I can hardly take a nice big breath and feel totally at ease but for now I'm incredibly grateful and I'm just writing it off to his having some kind of upper respiratory virus that we have to monitor carefully, give him lots of food, antibiotics twice a day, keep him calm, as calm as you can possibly keep a high strung inbred ultra-Siamesey monkey cat like him, and make sure he's getting plenty of water. So far it's been working and I have all of you to thank.
