    I am so sorry about Mike's illness.  Please give her a scritchie behind the ears (if she likes that, of course) from me.

    May you and your husband find comfort during this illness and in the coming days in the knowledge that Mike's has had a good life because you took a tiny stray Japanese pootie in.

      (I think of the old Jewish legend of the 36 RIghteous People whose decency keeps  God from  destroying the world) found her almost dead and took her to the vet. Mike was so sick she crawled over to her--she wanted to be petted and loved again before she died, I think (I can't hear Grizabella's song from CATS without thinking of that). The vet said she wasn't likely to make it, but Patty insisted on trying. My husband saw her the next day. She was too ill to even stand or niaow (Japanese cats niaow, not meow), but she made the silent open-mouth attempts.  I oculdn't bear the idea of her being abandoned again by another family. So I informed my husband that we were taking her.  

      When we were PCSing out of Japan, she panicked after they packed us out. She was sure she'd lose her people and Torachan, her big tabby soulmate who is half of their mated pair.  SHe only relaxed when she realized she was keeping her collar and there were enough carriers for all 4 cats.  SHe slept in that carrier for three nights to be sure she wsn't being left behind.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
