I just lost my kitty Henry yesterday. He was 20 years old. He got shot by a BB Gun (while he was relaxing in our yard) a few months ago. We tried to nurse him back to health. He was such a remarkable kitty, he seemed pretty strong. But he kept on losing weight. I was his main “care giver,” spoon-feeding him and then feeding him by dropper, giving him his medicine, etc., but in the end he just got too weak.
As you can see from the photo, he was a mighty fine specimin. He had a lot of personality. Very orange, and with six toes on his front feet, 5 on the back. (4 extra toes—the term for extra toes is “polydactyl.”) We loved him very much. By the way, that photo of him isn’t very old—he was plump and healthy up until just recently. You’d never guess how old he was.
I’m obviously really angry about the dirt-eating half-wit who has been shooting cats in the neighborhood, but I’m also just really tired. And sad. So, I thought I’d open a thread and ask others to share their pet pictures. (I have a soft spot for kitty pictures, but I can admire Mighty Fine dogs as much as anybody!)
So, please share your pictures, you stories, whatever. It’s never a bad time to see a nice picture of a cat or dog, (or rabbit, or ferret, etc.) and hear more about the animal. Thanks!
