Thanks Dawg. I really hope it is a case of getting well. He's 18. I'm afraid he's shutting down.

Taxy, I hope the vet had an easy solution. Something like the feline equivalent of Tums. Or mouthwash.

When we talked to our daughter on Sunday she told us she and her brother were taking her male cat (originally called Smokey but now he is Dan - he had a bad case of dandruff), to the vet Monday. He had a stroke back in January and he's been on-and-off with improving ever since. She was afraid Dan needed to be put down. But she didn't call last night and our son didn't post an "rip" on Facebook so I'm guessing Dan lives on.

I have two very environmentally conscious pets.

I just got a box of supplies and as soon as I opened it, Violet grabbed the packing paper and ripped it up into small pieces (her method of recycling ) and I couldn't get the stuff out fast enough before Monkey claimed the box as her next play fort!

Our poor kids. Turns out that our daughter's Dan The Cat had to be put down. He was around 14 but had had several strokes this year, on top of his hearing loss last year. That didn't stop him from nibbling radish slices from me at the holidays. Poor guy little. Gonna miss him when we visit this year. RIP Dan the Cat...

CG, I'm sorry about your grandcat. We lost our 18-year-old cat in January. So sad when they have been around for so long.

CG, so sorry to hear of Dan the Cat's passing. It is so hard to see them go no matter what the circumstances. Our mutt Joie was so sick when he passed but I still miss him, even with Monkey in our lives now. I think about the wonderful trouble those to would get into together and chuckle.

It sound's like Dan had a good life and was loved. He liked radishes? Is this normal for cats?

I've mentioned Dan to Gopher, he'll keep an eye out for him.

Condolences to his family.
