    vet assured me that clark is totally out of it..during the seizures and that it will take a few minutes after for his brain to rewire....when he starts having more symptoms ..then we review

    My cat is only 4 1/3 years old.

    So he has at least 11 to 15 years to go.

    And if I am killed in the line of duty and he outlives me then the lady upstairs has promised to take him in.

    I don't feel the same attachment to dogs (or horses) as I do to cats.

    While I would indeed spend several thousand $$'s on a cat, I would not do that on a dog or horse.

    Dogs and horses are a dime a dozen. You can even adopt them from rescue organizations for free.

    Rabbit pellets are not nearly as bad as dog or cat sh!t or pee.

    Rabbits are food; not pets...

    I recently had to put my dog down. His body was as healthy as a racehorse but he had a massive stroke.

    Not only do I still miss him but it ripped off the scab from my other dog's loss.

    I certainly sympathize with the decisions you will be forced to make. God grant you strength.

    it is funny what we tell ourselves...my dog is healthy but for the massive stroke....clark is healthy but for the suspected tumor
    i had a friend just put down her 22 yr old blind and deaf cat...she let it go way too long but that was her decision..

    I've watched many dogs grow old and had to put several dogs down. It never gets easier. The only good thing is that after a while, after the grief is no longer raw, you remember that friend when he was in his prime. I don't know what that all means, but I know I don't want to do without dogs in my life. I'm sure I'd feel the same way about a beloved cat. Hang in there, Bones.

    the meds worked for a while...the seizures are starting again...i knew they would...so far he is coming out of them fine....

    o i have dogs too...yesterday.....two of them locked up....and there was damage....i was running thru the yard trying to get to ernest t. who was screaming....i knew loki and him had locked up...hubby forgot and let the terrorist out before loki finished eating...it just went poorly...hubby is going....he is fine....i am screaming...his eye is bleeding....so i get him to vet....full physical and eye check...has a tear in eyelid...started antibiotics, eye drops and pain meds...vet is afraid a tear duck is damaged..(they cant fix that) may have runny eye....so far ...so good...well ernest t. hates the eye drops...he is such an ass that to give him pills i toss a few treat pieces down on floor with the pill...he hogs all of it up...

    hubby refuses to go more than 6 furbabies.....i run them thru the vet...at least once a year for check ups....and i do the all at once...like i told a friend..a helpless kitten shows up and hubby will suddenly say maybe 4 cats isnt too many...
