I know I have been holding out, so here is our pit bull Nilla. She is the most photogenic of the 3 we have... Because she sleeps so soundly...

She is ADORABLE!!! Is that her very own blankie, or does she share? Stan has his own, carries it around, snuggles with it, etc. gets upset when Stella borrows it...

She has her own which she will get if bored, but I put this one down to prevent her from wandering around looking for trouble while I game. She likes to nibble on the edges and then curls up on top of it when she gets sleepy.

Spider's been listless the past few days and we just found out from the vet that he's in kidney failure. It came on so suddenly and so strong that it looks like there's nothing we can do.

We're trying to keep him as comfortable and happy as we can for now.

That's rough, Q. I'm sorry to hear it.

Sorry Q.

So sorry to hear that, Q-Stone, that's heartbreaking.

Crap. I'm sorry Q-Stone and Yellek.

sorry guys. That's really sad.

I'm so sorry to hear that Q!

We'll miss you sweet boy.

Sorry to hear that about Spider. My family's cat of ~14 years encountered Kidney failure in early 2012 and we had to put him down. It's hard to admit that it's almost been two years but it still gets to me to think of it. I trust he had a happy kitty life and was very comfortable and loved during his last days.

Many, many hugs to Quintin and Yelleck. Aww, those pics of Spider... Heart wrenching.
And yeah, S0lidarity, I know exactly what you mean. We had to put down my cat of 13 years back in 2011 because of really advanced lymphoma. Still brings tears to my eyes after all this time.

Sorry guys, that blows.

Sorry to hear that. Good thoughts for you two.

My condolences. You gave him a good home.

Sorry for your loss Quintin and Yelleck. I think a lot of us have been there in the past and it is always hard.

Our Moose was only 6 when we had to say goodbye due to kidney failure back in 2010. We figured a orange tabby barn cat would wind up living forever.

Damn I miss that little sh*t.

My condolences Yellek and Q

Sorry Quintin and Yellek. I recall petting Spider on your stairs. He was a sweetie.

Sorry to hear that guys. Kidney issues suck.

My fabulous furball is battling the same thing. She's 18!
We have been doing the subcutaneous fluids for a couple years now and I know I am just borrowing time by doing that. She's still active and jumps! on the sofa but I see her get tired quicker than she used to. I know I am going to have to face that heartbreaking point when we realize her quality of life isn't there anymore and make that final vet trip. I will be a basket case then and looking for your emotional support too. Until then, I play with her each day to be make sure we enjoy whatever time she has left. Could be years... could be tomorrow...

I would have happily done subcutaneous fluids, but this came on just so suddenly, it wasn't a matter of his kidneys failing, it was that they had failed completely and it just blindsided us.

We had the exact same situation with our cat a few years ago and then our dog right before the girls were born.

So sorry, QS and Yellek.

Sucks That's exactly what happened to Moose. One day he's running around, the next he's curled up on the kitchen floor, barely moving.

Little girl decided that the cat tree was for her and not the cats. Phantom was not to happy about it.

I finally figured it out. Never used flickr before.

She is adorable.

Well it's been over 3 months since we lost Little. Tomorrow would have been her 5th birthday. After several trips to different shelters and gnashing over whether we were ready or not... today we met Blueberry.

He has a similar tuxedo pattern to Rascal, but with grey/stripes everywhere else instead of solid grey.

He's 1 year old this month (birthday unknown), so we'll probably just let him share Rascal's birthday. Tomorrow he gets a home and Rascal gets a new brother.

Picking him up after work, as we weren't entirely ready for a new cat with a segregated space yet. Got another litter box and doing a lot of apartment cleaning tonight, and then tomorrow, new kitty!

I'm sure this week will be hectic, emotional, and crazy all around. But we think it's time. Rascal has been quite lonely when we're at work and needs a playmate. And this new boy climbed up in my lap and took a nap at the shelter today. Hard to resist bringing him home after that.

Now... suggestions for a name? Because Blueberry is not sticking. :p

Heavy Weapons Kitty

Judging by that cat smirk you may as well just go with... "Trouble"
(Or that can be his middle name?)
