In my new home.

Mum just entered my tree story in a contest on a cat site about nine lives.  She thinks we'll win.

Mum's Dad is near death.  He is still alive after 10 days of no food or fluids.  If he had not had a stroke he thinks he would have lived 100 years.  He must be a strong person.  Mum says Samantha lived that long in human years. She has accepted that he is dying.

There are serious ear problems.  Bits ear  mites are gone as are Blackie's.  Old Man's ears hurt and we think Little Cat has mites.  Mum says she's never had this problem in 60 years of cats.

Old man Black (we don't know how old he is, but he's missing teeth.  He was dropped here a year or so ago.  He was declawed.   Mum says that could have led to his death  by dogs.  We don't know how but he anded with an abbsess  the size of a baseball.  Phil had to even cut out gangreen tissue.  He said it had almost gone thru his lungs to the other side.  See photo.  It  was worse than shown.


  1. So sorry to hear of Mum's Dad. And everything else that's going on. Good luck on the story contest!

  2. I love Abigail's blog. I remember Samatha so well. I always love your cat family - okay all the family, cat and human. I am sorry to hear about your tree ordeal. I am sure it was frightening. Thank the Lord for the water. I am sorry to hear that Mum and Dad are having so many health issues. I will keep them in prayer.
