Hello, Lovetra: I am sorry to hear of all the challenges you have been facing this last little while. I hope for the best for Idjit ... and for you, too, as you recover (physically and emotionally) from the mugging! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

GT :-)

Yeah, that mugging was the last straw for my job in Stockton, CA, Americas #1 for car thieves. Guy on a bicycle hit me on my tail bone with his front tire. I was pulling a dolly type luggage cart that he -'flipped' me over. He grabbed my computer case and took off. Landed, head right shoulder, hip, knee, twisted ankle. Concushion was the worst.

I pray that the Vet is wrong about the tumor too. Snickers was simply old,old age. 17 years! Beautiful, vibrant calico! Idjit would let her eat first out of her bowl and finish what the cat walked away from with her tail proudly displayed showing attitude and gratitude to the dog. That was one of lifes little pleasures to watch a hundred 125lb wolf-shepherd mix and a 15-18 lb cat.

I'd have loved to see those two together! It's amazing the power a cat can wield (with the help of humans who forbid the dog to harm the cat).

Until she died of old age, Muffins the cat ruled the realm. When Sandy, the stray dog, arrived and acted like this was home, we simply had to adopt her.

The first time Sandy saw Muffins, she chased Muffins and we got after her about it immediately. Once Sandy knew that Muffins had priority, she never again threatened Muffins ... and for Muffins' part, she was willing to tolerate Sandy's presence, once she knew that Sandy "understood" how things worked around here.

That's a great story GT! Hilarious!

I had a cat named Frisky. She was callico and half siamese. I adopted her from the Human Society when she was 3 weeks old. She was found with her siblings, on the side of the road, eating their dead mother (sorry - I know that's gross). She was so tiny and starving....so special attention had to be paid to her.

Over the next 3 years, she became my baby. She would follow me around, take naps on the couch with me, she even made a hole in my boxspring and slept in there at night. The only problem is that I could not leave her alone. I tried to go away for the night and Frisky got so mad that she broke all my crystal vases (on the counter). I was NOT happy.

Then came little Sampson. He was a 6 week old kitty that was given to us (owner could not take care of him). Well...unlike GT's heart warming story, Sampson and Frisky did NOT get along. Sampson would chase Frisky under the couch and try to scratch her. I thought over time that they would get along, but the fighting just got worse.

So off to the in-laws did Sampson go. The funniest thing is that the day we gave him away was the day he started spraying. Ooops hehehehe.

LOL, good timing with Sampson! Your crystal story reminded me of something similar that Muffins liked to do.

She knew she wasn't allowed on tables or counters but she always tested our tolerance anyway. If she got into serious trouble (we might have given her a slap to the flank, or my wife's favourite thing - catching Muffins and wiping her face with water) then she would retaliate by sitting on a chair by the table and then "innocently" start reaching up and knocking things off!

It was annoying, depending on what she was knocking off, but it was quite amusing, too, to see her personality and "cat attitude" coming through.

GT :-)

Snickers was tiny and just barely had her eyes open when she came to our house. The eyes were all pussy and she stank something awful. Idjit found her and had her in her mouth when I saw the kitten for the first time. I thought the dog had done her wolf thing and killed the tiny fur ball. Didn't have a clue where she came from.

Someone had evidently, either thrown, or put the kitten in our back yard with Idjit and 3 other dogs. I started feeding the kit, not beliving she would survive. Idjit would curl up around her as she slept and clean the kit like it was her puppy, growling when the other dogs came close.

I think she raised that cat as much as we did.

It is amazing, the affinity that one creature will have for another. It seems that some animals are much more sensitive than others ... just like humans, lol!

It has been a long time since I updated about Idjit. She has done a great job and has pulled through. She is 13 years old and a has gained weight because of the lack of activity I think some. But she is doing GREAT. So far no return of the tumor.

Like me though she sure has slowed down but then we are greatfull for every day we have her. She is starting to play some with the other dogs since the leg has healed and she has gotten rid of the plastic collar to prevent the licking.
