Thanks all! MEWHENRYMAMA, Steve is the outside cat. He has an interesting story. My sister is a cat rescuer and has 25 cats at the moment. She rescues them, spay/neuters them and then tries to find good homes for them. My kids call her house the cat wonderland. Anyway, she found Steve (black cat) after he had been shot (some goon shot him for being on his car!).
Anyway, he is kind of a wild cat and we have a ton of woods. I do want to bring him in some day (and I do worry about him)…but we have another 17 year old cat that hates everyone except us. She has cancer and has a nervous disorder (and she's deaf). When she gets stressed, she passes blood. So, Steve has to live outside and in the garage (he can get in through a crack). We also sneak him upstairs past our other cat and he plays with my kids in the playroom…has a blast.
Ok, that's about it. Thanks again!

I'm sorry about all you are going thru with your furbabies. Sly is 10 and when we got him the vet told us that he probably would be around long. He outlived his brother Leo (who was the healthy one) and lets Zorra (2) know who's the boss when its important to him.

Welcome! I sure know what you are going through as we lost our rescued dog and two cats last year! It is such a loss but I would not have wanted to live without them having been in my life and giving them a forever home where they were loved! I hope you can tame your outside kitty and maybe he can move in! Ck out the Internet for info/ideas. I hope you will consider adopting more kitties to enrich your life and theirs. Again, WELCOME! Kitty hugs, Mary =^..^=
Sure wish I'd found this team before. My 17 year old boy cat died suddenly and it was the saddest thing ever. My 17 year old girl cat now has cancer and we don't really want to get surgery. Ugh. Didn't know cats could get breast cancer,but that's basically what she has. We also have a fairly new cat that lives outside (although I don't like to have a cat outside, because I worry). He is young and spry and it helps me see how slow the older ones are. Great to find this group.
