First, some very good news.  My brother and sister-in-law got home about 9pm Wednesday.  The flight went fine and my sister-in-law is feeling pretty good.  She is going in to see her doctor today, just to make sure her lungs are OK again, but my brother feels that her problems on that score are over.  Thanks again for all your purrs and prayers.

This is Twizzler, Meep's new brother.  That's his name because he is long and skinny and likes to twist around a lot.  In fact, he's a chocolate Twizzler.  He's a Meezer and he likes to talk a lot.  That suits Meep just fine, because Meep likes to talk a lot, too.  He is FIV+, like Meep, and about five years old.  He is very friendly and he and Meep took to each other right away.  The Mom and Dad brought him home from Dr. Wendy's vet office on August 22nd.  He was found roaming around by himself, very skinny and anemic, very near the vet office and Dr. Wendy took him in to try to find him a home.  No one knows why he was on his own, but he has a very good home now.  Twizzler had to be isolated from Meep until September 19th because he turned out to be a little sick when he first came home and because they had to run his feline leukemia test twice, just to make very sure that he didn't have anything bad that he could give to Meep.  You have to be very cautious with FIV+ cats because their immune systems are compromised.  Meep and Twizzler got acquainted through the door while Twizzler was isolated, so that when Twizzler finally got to come out, they already knew each other a bit.  Now they play and snuggle together all the time.

                                                 Twizzler is a chocolate seal-point Siamese.
                                                 He fit his way into Meep's house with ease.
                                                       He stayed by himself-y
                                                       'Til they knew he was healthy.
                                                Now he and Meep love each other to tease.

I am so glad that Twizzler and Meep could live with each other, and they could snuggle to each other and won't feel alone.

Twizzler has very beautiful eyes, and I like it~!!!!

What a beautiful cat! And did you know that I just LOVE Twizzlers? You can't buy them in Italy, but my human-grandma ships them to me from time to time. Humans really are great creatures.

Keep them fun limericks coming!

I am glad your brother and sister-in-law are home, and that your s-i-l is doing well.

Twizzler looks like a lovely Meezer. My mom loves Twizzlers, but sadly she can't get them in Germany.

Twizzler is adorable! i like siamese cats cuz they look like German Shepherds :-)

The Devil Dog said...

Twizzler is very cute. The very first cat mom remembers having was a siamese cat. That was before we knew mom was allergic. I am so happy Meep has a playmate. Being alone must be no fun at all.
I will send Lucky over to your sister in law later this afternoon. Tell her to expect the face washing, but it really is sweet and makes you fell SO special. ha ha ha

Twizzler is looking like he doesn't want to be disturbed! So happy to hear your sister-in-law is doing better!


Caesar and Princess said...

We were praying for Meep and hoping that their family would heal after the loss of Buzzerbee. That was soooo hard, such a big change after taking lots of care of Buzz and keeping him comfy through his last days with his earth beans.

We are so glad that Twizzler came into their lives.

This is a cute limerick as usual.

We are also thrilled to learn that your family is home. Home is the place to be, and we hope your sister in law continues to improve.

Great news about your sister-in-law!

Twizzler is a handsome mancat, much like myself. His eyes are the same blue as mine! Meep and Twizzler are lucky to have each other. I know I would be lonely if I didn't have my sisters to snuggle and play with.
