    I'm expecting

    His name is Yodi and he's 17. Has hyperthyroid and on one med per day. I pick him up at the beginning of July. He's got a bit of meezer in him and his colouring is all different shades of grey. Gee, sounds like the book.....

    Story is that at an advanced age, his human took him to the vet and his hyperthyroidism (sp?) was discovered. Human said put him to sleep and walked away. The vet surrendered him to the no-kill shelter and he's been there for months and months. He was adopted out once but was returned for bad behaviour. Duh!!! Stupid idiot decided to cut him off his thyroid medicine. Long story short, I've signed the papers and will become his long term foster Meowmie when I get back from Ottawa on July 2nd.

    He hates other animals so he's now in a cage by himself. I just could not bare to think of him living out the remainder of his days there. It's a very well run shelter and kept really clean with wonderful volunteers, but he has to be in a cage because there is no other place to put him, especially since it's kitten season.

    Oh yes and you should see his eyes light up when I mention the Catmobile and all the trips it takes.

    Congrats!!! He's gorgeous. I'm sure that he'll enjoy being in your home and I hope that you'll have many more years together. PT homes are the best.

    Oh he is beautiful. You are doing a wonderful thing for him by giving him the best place he could live. I'm happy for both of you.

    Time helps the sadness subside, but the memories remain forever.

    God bless you both.

    I also was thinking blue point Siamese when I got to the photo.

    Anyway, CONGRATS Slick! Yodi does look like a nice fella. This should be interesting for BOTH of you, lol, I suspect Yodi has his OWN Routines, given his age, ha haa, and being C A T, he is going to expect the servant to fall into line!

    So sad to learn he's been stuck in a cage for months and months. As an experienced Cat Owner, you know he may need some time to adjust to a room again, let alone a home. When I adopted my Cuddles 8 years ago (!) she had been at the shelter for 18 months. I put her in a room by herself (I had other cats here which you don't have) and opened the carrier door. She looked out a the large area, and backed in to the carrier again. It took about 3 weeks, as I recall, for her to feel comfortable in the room. So do leave the carrier available for a bit.
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Thanks for taking on this handsome old-timer. I think senior cats are very rewarding to have, because they are so grateful to have a furrever home.

    Congrats - Yodi looks like a lovely boy! He looks just like my RB Blue Point Meezer, Sam.

    I can't believe how anyone could have just abandoned him. Some people are such jerks, and should never be allowed to be pet parents. I'm so glad that he'll have a wonderful home with you for the rest of his days.

    He's your boy!

    Slick, I'm so glad Yodi is going to end up with you, he couldn't have found a better home. He has beautiful blue eyes and a coat to go with them. Like others said, he'll need some time to adjust and relax, but you know all about that.

    I so look forward to hear more once he's home with you.

    Yodi, you are GORGEOUS!!! You hit the jackpot with Slick, my friend. A better meowmie cannot be found. Slick, how can someone abandon their beloved kitty because of a thyroid disorder? That's just cruel! Mac takes his meds (which aren't expensive) and he's a healthy, happy, kitty. I just know you are going to give Yodi the best home ever!
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!
