Oh my gosh, me too. If anyone cries in my presence, so do I. It doesn't have to even be in front of me, come to think of it. I've had happy and sad tears on occasion just from reading this forum.

Cave, thank you for your comment on little Beau cat.

In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”

Oh sweet Beau!

I always cry also. I have to leave my poor cats behind when I go back home, but they will be with Gwen. I am taking Azia with me this time.

After this, I'm taking all 3 of them. I'm already so upset. As you saw in my post of changes, later on I will take my cats also.

With love,
~Cat

I'm worried about Shreddy. He has gotten very, very fussy about food. He asks for food and then eats a mouthful or looks at and at me and walks away. Yesterday he hardly ate anything. He was walking around without having his tail in the air. He also has the foulest belches one could imagine. He seems a little better today. He ate the leftover food overnight and has his tail back up.

I phoned the vet for an appointment yesterday. I guess they were closed for Easter Monday. I left a message.

Might have been a bit constipated and it resolved itself overnight.

No sign of that in the box, which he is still using. I may have to start keeping track.

I have an appointment for this afternoon.

Tax, You said your cat belched. Perhaps the reason for his tail being down (and now up) was a gastric problem that didn't involve the nether end but the upper end. Maybe the belches got rid of the gas that made your kitty feel bad.

But it's a good thing you'll be seeing the vet just to set your mind at ease.

I'm not sure if belch is quite the right word. He does this funny chewing thing and then the foul air appears. It's been getting worse for about two weeks, maybe a little longer. I think there may be some gastric upset. The foul smell isn't all the time, but often. Yeah, I will be anxious at least until we have seen the vet. Appointment at 15h40 today. Stirling is coming with me. It's in town, so the drive will probably be a half hour or more and then I will have to find parking.
