Somehow, my cats multiplied exponentially.

Well, my Mom called me last night and asked if I could take her two cats. We had these cats since I was about 16, so they know me but one of them is very timid and is hiding right now. The other one (the one that always slept with me) is out and about. I am giving them free roam of the finished basement and keeping the door closed. The other two kitties are still upstairs and on the main floor. We have 3 floors.

Because of my parents divorce, my Mom is living with a roommate right now. However, she is deathly allergic to cats. She just realized that it's why she's had hives the past couple of months.. go figure ! The doc told her that if it continues, she will have a respiratory attack. Not good!

So.. 2 turned into 4 :) For now, anyways.


And for anyone who is wondering, Kass and Leo are doing great today. Kass is alot more active. I left them alone most of the day and only came to check on them at lunchtime, and to clear Kass' nose of crusties by steaming up the bathroom and holding him in a towel while he meows and I say, "ohh yes, I am so mean little baby..."
When I came home tonight, no crusties at all! Just a runny nose and a bit of sneezing. All the junk is almost out! Also, he was winding around my legs when I opened the can of food. His sense of smell is back.

Any chance you would want a 10 yr old female Siamese? She's probably got another 10 yrs in her.

She and I have issues.

Nothing wrong with being a "cat" lady Saph-anyone who cares for any animal that much is OK in my book!

I once moved into a house with a pregnant stray living under the house. After giving away with some of the kittens, we ended up with 8 cats we just couldn't part with. Good luck and enjoy your kitties =).

Leo started having a bit of runny eyes last night, they are worse when I got home today after work. I will keep wiping them with a warm damp tissue.. he's been sneezing too, I hope the antibiotics keep this at bay.
