The stones did cause the UTI, but the surgery was to remove the stones lodged in there, not for the UTI.

Glad he's all good.

Princess Fiona: Are you a Cat Whisperer ?

I suffered terribly when they both passed on and at moment, just cannot as I travel alot for my profession and to see my two daughters who live in two different countries.

No, I just collect cute cat pictures and change them frequently. I am a cat fancier, have two of my own. I don't know what breed that baby is, but it's so cute! I'll have to start sharing my pictures of big cat kittens.

Here are my two, Smudge and Latté:

That is a long time for cats to live. I know what my granddaughter went through after her Siamese died at 17 y.o. Tasha was her best friend.

Smudge only tolerates me because I open the food cans. Latté is my baby, she follows me everywhere and Shrek tells me she looks for me all day long. She sleeps on me all night, she is also a talker. We got her after someone threw her away when she was a baby.

At one time I could honestly say I was not an animal person. Living on the farm, it didn't bother me when one of the chickens ended up on the dinner table, or when the pigs went to slaughter. Living in Texas, I was the one who called and watched the slaugher truck cut up the heaifer and pig for the freezer without any feelings of remorse. That is why we had them. Animals are here to serve us. And no, you can't have a pet because I will be the one who ends up feeding it and cleaniing up after it. But if I saw you neglect or abuse an animal, I would be the first one to report you.

But ater watching Animal Planet for so long, I do not understand how anyone can abuse or neglect an animal. When I see the conditions of living of some of those animals that the Houston ASPA rescue, I can't help but wonder about the heart of them when their will to live is so strong as to survive against all odds. Sometimes the animals are in such deplorable condition, I have to change the channel and come back later to see the results of the care given with so much love.

Latté wasn't even old enough to be weaned when a friend found her under a car in a parking lot. She had sores on her paws from the hot pavement. Friend already had 4 cats, so we took her. At the time we thought she was a boy Himalayan...but no she was a Siamese baby girl.

My granddaughter had a female Siamese named Tasha. She was my g'daughter's best friend. When my daughter (her mother) died, she cried and told everything to Sasha. Sasha was 17 y.o. when she died. She had her cremated and to this day has her ashes at her bedside. And the g'daughter is now in her mid 30's. I will always be grateful for Sasha. I was trying to deal with my own grief and was unable to be of much help to my g'daughter.
