It’s risky. A woman of a certain age writing about her cats. Readers might throw around phrases like “cat lady” and “crazy cat lady”. But it’s a chance I’m prepared to take.
Our 15-year-old Head of Household Security isn’t well. In addition to hyperthyroidism, he has pancreatitis and a bit of kidney disease. It’s thought that once we get the pancreas sorted out, the kidney will improve. We certainly hope so.
Spice is sick. How sick, we weren’t sure, so we took him to the vet on Wednesday morning. Taking a senior cat to a vet is like logging onto webMD. The symptoms could be the common cold, or deadly cancer!

Animal Aide in St. Thomas apparently tried to adopt them together but no one wanted two senior cats. They were both 11 at the time. So Chloe was adopted separately and we came to learn about Spice …
I simply don’t believe in outdoor cats except in the two cases I specify in this randt. And I will randt you why!
Some people say it’s insane to spend hundreds of dollars on an operation for a cat when you can replace him with another one so much cheaper. None of those people live in this house.
Last fall, our little family expanded in the most delightful way. For a while, hubby and I have been debating the pros and cons of hearing the pitter-patter of little feet in the hallway and in November, it finally happened. Yes, we adopted a rescue cat.
