    and don't let the ones who are clueless get you down. Your friend sounds well meaning, just completely ignorant of what you're dealing with. He sees effect thinking he sees cause. As for Nigel, definitely get him checked out, but it could be he's allergic to something, perhaps something in the food, or the litter, or a cleaning product. Dori was loosing hair for a while, until I switched litter and changed flea product. I'm not sure which one did it, but she's not scratching and pulling her hair out any longer. And her weight is evening out because she's not coughing up hairballs on a daily basis. Maybe try adding some canned food for him, in your room where he doesn't have to compete with the other cats, that may be the simplest and quickest change you could make.

    As to Burn Notice, we've been watching it from the beginning. We all love the show, even the kids. I'm not as fond of the final season, they seem to be working hard to destroy everything they've built, I'm hoping they end it well. I have the first few seasons on DVD and hope to one day round out the set.

    Take care of yourself my friend, try to relax and keep busy, and know I'm thinking about you.

      and we've used Frontline all along - I think it's the diet food or something he picked up from one of Dad's cats, or the constant battle with worms.  I treat him, but since they don't treat the others regularly, he still ends up infested again, even using his private litter box.

      I'm only on the 2nd season, I hope they don't fuck it up too bad.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
