    As most of you know I love animals. Especially cats. I have had one very docile Maine Coon Mix named Buddy. But I've been wanting to adopt another one. I've been in prayer about the right cat, that God would show me what to do and point me to the right one or bring one my way. We have had a huge colony of ferals and strays that I'd been trying to comfort, feed, water anything I could do to bring them love. But in the heat they've gone hiding, the Tom's have killed the kittens, foxes found prey. Except for this one......
    I started feeding a cat in January with similar markings but I don't know what happened to him. Then we had a series of evictions a lady with dementia and this little cat who needed food. I brought him can after can for a couple weeks. He started living in my yard. I gave him water, then one night it happened. He meowed so long for hours and hours and hours anything to escape the 100 degree heat. He was dehydrated, and active. but getting sicker. I opened the door. he streaked inside, voraciously ate a can of food and drank as much water as his little body could handle. Then he ran into a room with fresh litter used the box and "tolerated" a bath. As he's rehydrated and eaten his appetite is regulated he's neutered and we frontlined him. My docile big boy has "accepted him" one thing we noticed, when his ears move he looks like a Vulcan.

    I have 2 cats, 3 kids and one husband. When I figure out what kind of pet the husband is I'll tell you.

    The early symptoms are certainly there. Prognosis is never favourable.

    I have 2 cats. I've never had more than 3 cats at a time (then I realized that was a mistake and found good homes for them) I've fostered animals, until the burden was too much and I adopted them out at no kill shelters.... now I might be an animal lover, but that does NOT make me a crazy cat lady........it means I know what I can and can't handle. and in the last 11 years I've never had more than 2 pets at a time and this is the first time in 7 years I've had two.....AHEM!!!!

    Every CCL denies being one, so that is more evidence that you are on your way to becoming one.

    Not to mention that you have a rapidly growing thread about your cat.
    Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
