A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.

There are several feral cats who hang around Puff's house and Randy was one of them. Puff's Mom feeds them and tries to looks after them as best she can. Puff's Mom and Dad decided to try to catch Randy last December because he wasn't looking too good. They succeeded on December 10th and took him to the vet. Randy was pretty sick. He tested positive for both FIV and feline leukemia. He had an open wound on his tail, four teeth that had to be removed, fleas, worms, IBD and some kidney problems. He was also quite wild and quite capable of slicing and dicing any human who got too close to him. He lived in a nice big cage in the small bedroom, with a carrier to hide in. He got lots of medicine in his food, which he usually ate, until he got really sick. He was getting used to being inside and around humans. Puff's Mom found out that if she attached a soft brush to a stick, Randy would let her brush him. He even purred while she did it. Just before he went to the Rainbow Bridge, Randy even let Puff's Mom pet him with her hand. He was turning into an inside cat. Randy lived in Puff's house for a bit over two months and was apparently getting better, but then he went into a serious decline and had to be helped to the Rainbow Bridge. Puff's family are very sad.
Randy was a cat who lived outside. When Mom tried to catch him, he would hide. Then he got really sick And went to the vet quick. It was too late to save him, so he went Bridge-side.
