Friday Cat - Alex gets mellow

Here's Alex posing on the new quilt set, as long as he's close to mom or mom's pillow he's fine. Alex just went for a checkup and shots today so we will find out soon if he has any new developing health problems. He was diagnosed about a year ago with Inflammatory Bowel Disease so he's on a constant regimen of pills, prednisone and such. He's lost a half-pound in the last few months, so he's down to 7.5 lbs. (a year ago he was down to 7 lbs. when he got his IBD sorted out, then gained up to 8, but it's going to be a roller coaster on the scales I guess) -- just a little old skinny man, he is, and having a rough time but getting lots of love. Our little Super(cat)model.

Here is Duncan, wanting to take a peek at the "House of the (mostly) black cats" since he lives in the House of half black cats and half cats of other colors. He's always the one to give a big HOWDY!

- Friday Ark - Carnival of the Cats - This week's carnival is at House of the (Mostly) Black Cats on Sunday - - -

Alex reminds me a little of my friends cat (Beast - he use to be one but he is 20yrs old now so we call him B) he is having some bowel problems too.

But Alex and Duncan are both such pretty boys, I am sure they get tons of lovings.

Hi Alex and Duncan and family!
I'm Mini and I'm being hostess for the Carnival of the Cats cuz my Mom said I get treats for every cat that joins this week. Woo! I even put a billboard on our blog. hehehe
Alex, I get IBD too. YUKKY! I'm glad you got over it. It's nasty. How'd you get over it? I'm mostly better now but not all the way.
Duncan, come visit! We love for kitties to visit. And you and Alex (and your sisfurs and brofurs) can both be honorary catizens on our site too if you want to.
Good to meetcha! Yall are handsum kitties!
Mini the Cat

Poor Alex - he's not over the IBD. All we got sorted out last year was it was IBD and not cancer. Whew!

We all want to be Catizens! Got 4 more spots for 4 Mousketeers?
