Thank you, Diamond! *kitty nose kisses*
You rock, Diamond, and so do your monkeys.
Diamond needs a superhero cape. I wish I had photoshop on this machine!
I betcha there's some crafter reading this who can make him one real quick!
What an attractive kitty cat. And I mean that in a purely platonic human-feline sense, not the other sense. I'll shut up now.
Thank you Diamond.
Our kitty, Ziggy died last Monday. The house has been joyless ever since.
Ohhh :( Heartfelt condolences.
Thanks, he was 16, and although had suffered kidney problems and arthritis, he pulled through and was fine. But weekend before last his eye went odd,we thought conjunctivitis, but it was a tumour, coupled with a bladder blockage which the vet believed was ongoing for some time. He showed no pain or discomfort. Sadly he was too weak for the anaesthetic and didn't make it. But he had a well-loved, well-fed life/
I'm so sorry about Ziggy. May your memories bring you happiness until the joy can return.
Sorry to hear about Ziggy. The joy that echoes is that he had the opportunity for you to be in his life and that he lived a life filled with love and absent of pain.
I'm so sorry for your loss.
Diamond looks so totally blase - cracks me up. Well done - even if you don't give a hoot Diamond.
He looks like an old knowing soul.
It never occurred to me that there would be kitty blood donors. Does Diamond get to see what happens with his blood, and have any concept of what he's doing?
Just added a link to Diamond from my post about giving blood. (Just as well there are no photos of me involved.)
I think Diamond just sits there.
Thanks for the updates, which I'm passing along. Clark is heroic in his determination to live and heal, and Diamond is also a hero, though he probably doesn't know it. I've had (and have) a whole lot of cats because of exactly this kind of thing. Yeah, food costs money, and vet care costs money. And there's a lot of cleaning up to do associated with an animal or animals living in the house. The cats, they always pay that back 20 fold with their personalities, beauty, and love. In many ways life around here would be easier without them... but I wouldn't change a thing.
Also, they warm beds and keep the invisible things from stomping on you (they do that themselves)!
They do, indeed. I think I'd be lost without them.
do cats have blood types? should kitties with rare blood types be on call?
i just learned this! a, b, and ab. the a type is the dhs, but some breeds are a or b only. ab is universal acceptably of blood. the others need matched typed.
like 97% of dhs are type a
that's convenient. thanks!
deez boy does not look happy..
love his heart shaped fur on his chest. super lover..
now i just learned all about cat blood types! lucky that he was dhs as they all have the same blood type. the more you know.
Such a handsome hero! Diamond is an ace!

Super Diamond! (proof I'm no Photoshop artist...)

Thank you, Diamond.
