I share my three-room condo with a gorgeous, affectionate but temperamental cat. Give him a "happy" pill every evening. He started out as a Chocolate-point Siamese, but after a year or two, his hair began to grow and grow and grow. Very thick. He doesn't talk much, which is fine with me. I live in a world of cat hair now. It's OK.

Oh Judith, I am SO very sorry for the loss of your dear Piccolo! :( What a beautiful kitty baby she was/is. I know she has crossed the Rainbow Bridge and is romping and playing with all of mine that have crossed over. It is never easy no matter how many times you go through it because each baby has their own unique and distinct personality. It gives me peace to see them in my mind in a grassy field just all romping and playing and running together, happy and free from illness or pain. God bless you hon. xoxoxo

Hi Heather - glad you found us over here in the pet pit.
Sorry about your lost Piccolo. How did he get such an interesting name? He looks so much like the little PITA mewing at me right now to throw this silly wire toy down the stairs so she can thunder down the steps and bring the toy back to me for more throws! I think she must have heard someone yell "Fetch!" and figured they must have said "FISH!" because she never fails to root out that (and only that) little toy and bring it back to me. And if I'm not quick enough to pick it up and toss it again, she will figure out a way to get my attention. And THAT's where the million and one stories come to mind... but fortunately (for all of us) not to print!
