Better.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes for my brother. As you all know, Eddie is an elderly boy and pretty frail these days. His sense of taste and smell has deteriorated and he often has poor or no appetite. He has fair days and bad days, and yesterday was a difficult day for him. I know my mom gets very worried about him if he won't eat or gets sick when he does. I know I make fun of him yakking a lot or getting special food and eating arrangements but I know it's not his fault.

But today he was better. He's eaten at least a little of everything Mom has offered him. And he was talking to Mom and even purring again, too. So we'll take what we can. It's really all we can do.

  15. Wm, Wm! Miles is pleading for help from other Tomcat Stable members. Go to Kukka's comments and help him. We posted on his behalf to calm her down, keep Sanjee alive and let Miles stay in The Stable. We know she'll listen to her "Squilliam"

  18. You're a furry good brother, William ... I'm sure that Eddie appreciates your attention.

    A few weeks ago, Fudgie was acting similarly. Mom was furry worried, so she just let him alone and let him sleep. He's feeling much better and has been eatin' ... He really likes Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys in the "soufflé" recipes: chicken or salmon. I like 'em, too ... Perhaps those might perk up his appetite?

    Good luck and positive, healthy thoughts ...

  20. We haven't been visiting as much as we'd like and we're sorry to hear that your family had a scare. We're very glad to hear that Eddie seems to be feeling better now.
