    What a sweet and handsome face!

    Seems a little on the thin side, but I look forward to the rejuvenation he will have at the Ploss household!

    He is so handsome! He looks like a wild cat. And I don't mean he acts wild, but he looks like a small version of a large type wild cat. LOL

    Welcome to a wonderful home Elan!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I've been Boo'd!!!

    Welcome home, Elan; your last name is now Ploss and you will be very well taken care of. Maybe you can now get a few good meals and fill out a little. Rest up, honey, your new home awaits exploration!

    I had the baby gates up yesterday. This morning he looked like he was wanting to come out so, down they came!!!! There I was with a squirt bottle in one hand and Feliway spray in the other. He growled but is now laying on the couch with me. He's going to be fine!!! The cats know he's here and aren't bothering him. They're just very curious. He'll be in the bathroom at night for a while for his own safety.

    Couldn't ask for a better transition!!! Look...

    Elan, what stunning green eyes you have! I am glad the others aren't bothering you, or you them. Welcome home, baby boy!

    I have a call into the vet who did his blood work. According to the notes I took, his bloodwork came back normal. He's way too thin not to have underlying issues. He doesn't eat much, has plaque and gingivitis. He does like Science Diet A/D. The other canned food hurts to chew.

    I'll let you know what she says.

    Look at that face!!!

    That plaque and gingivitis has got to hurt!

    There is dental food but it's the hard stuff. I wonder if putting Biotene in his drinking water would be an idea? I don't know that he'd be in shape for a dental.

    That could be the main reason he is so thin. Praying for an answer for Elan.

    He doesn't drink out of the fountains. He likes his water out of the tap. Still waiting a call back. He's been sleeping on the heated throw on the couch all day. I have a feeling I can leave him out at night. My cats KNOW he's old and are respecting him. Well, if it IS something bad, at least he'll know love, cuz I'm sure smitten with him!!

    Oh, Donna - thanks for giving sweet Elan the love & affection he sure deserves.
    He looks like a very soft kitty.



    I will miss you forever, my sweet Scooter Bug. You were my best friend. 9/21/1995 - 1/23/2010
    Goodbye, Oreo. 4/17/2003 - 9/12/2011. Gone too soon.

    Elan is still going strong!! We have had a setback, though. It seems he misses the litterbox lately. I now have to put wee-wee pads around the boxes. So far he's been using them. He is definitely deaf, as I tested his hearing by screaming at the top of my lungs as I stood behind him. He didn't flinch. But hey, he's gonna be 19 soon, so it goes with the territory.

    He loves snuggling next to me on the futon, with his front paw wrapped around my arm, my hand scratching his chin. I love him so much!!!

    So... he misses the litter pan. Doesn't hear. But he's a snuggle boy! Your Meowmie loves you and this post gives me the leaky eyes
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
