Adopted this little girl today. She is a 6 year old female. Very sweet but very shy. She was found as a stray but now she’ll have a great home. 

Say hello to Arya  

Celebrating the one-year anniversary of Asante's adoption already! When she first came home she was so scared she hid in the corner behind the bookcase and refused to come out other than to eat o

For some reason, the text didn't save.The cat on the bed is Jack, the wild one.

He's seems comfortable enough to snooze with his feet in the air.

He's the top cat on the sofa, the other is Ebony, my 20 year old.

A long time ago she was just a sad sickly little kitten in the animal shelter.

Yeah, I know Bobby’s comfortable when he lies on his back and exposes his belly...right in the middle of the hallway.

And Skye has been particularly cuddly these past couple days, she fell asleep in my lap today, after headbutting me near to death!

20 years old!  That’s awesome.

Blimey - 20! That is impressive

Ours is either 17 or 18, and eats like a horse. Deaf as a post now, lost a couple of teeth, and too old to get out of the garden any more - she can't leap onto the fence. And she doesn't groom so well now, but thinks I am the cat god when I get the comb out!

But she does all the usual cat things - feed me, cuddle me, let me out, let me in, and sleep for 18 hours a day.

Tab "Hunter."  I brought him to the vet because he had a nasty cough, almost like whooping cough.  We got the devastating news that he has lung cancer, and it could be as little as one week left.

Four months later (!) still has the cough, and spits up sometimes because of it.  But he loves being with me, purrs up a storm when being pet or brushed, eats and drinks regularly, etc.  Is definitely breathing shallower and faster, and pretty much sleeps a lot when not hanging with me.  But still great company, and he hasn't told us it's time yet.

For reasons unknown Sam likes to go head first and squish his head against the wall in this particular cat tree

Dunhill gave a loud shriek and tried to bite me, Saturday night, when I petted his jaw. He has never acted violently towards me at any time for even when he has been sick or injured, in the past. I assume he has been in pain for a while, and it just wasn’t obvious to hairless apes, and he just couldn’t take chin scratches anymore (I pay a lot of attention to their behavior, which has caught some things before they got bad; not this time). I unfortunately wasn’t able to get him into the vet until today (and I called around, believe you me). He requires substantial surgery for resorptive lesions. I knew he had some dental issues, but he never presented pain like that until he did, and the vet we had been seeing had been checking his mouth regularly, and never thought it needed anything other than special food and being watched. The dental specialist he saw today thinks that Dunnie had some significant trauma long before I got him, and it finally burst out. That is apparently a common thing with cats his age. It’s not a cheap procedure, and he is scheduled, and will be getting kitty Percocet shots every few days until then. 
 

Funny enough, I have my own oral surgery (extraction, abscess ablation, and bone graft, due to a root that finally failed around a crown from an accident that happened ten years ago, with implant and crown after I heal in 6 months) scheduled for Monday. Dunhill is going in the Monday after (quickest I could schedule him). I’m lucky I can afford both: if I couldn’t, Dunhill would be getting his and I would just have to wait. It would have been nice if he could have waited a few weeks; if he wants grafts and implants he’s gonna have to pay for them himself, though.

Good grief - you're both going through the dental wars. Hope you both get through it just fine, and your wallet recovers.

That is if they don't get you both confused and give you a cat's tooth implant and fit Dunhill with human dentures....
