Default For Q-Tip

I know not everyone is a chatterbox like me, but I would appreciate positive thoughts and prayers for my kitty cat Q-Tip. (My current avatar kitty) He is hospitalized and very, very ill with Diabetes and Ketoacidosis. Thank you all!

Default visit

I just went to see him in the hospital and he looks awful! He perked up for a minute when I called him "Tip Topper" (he has a LOT of nicknames) but he's got multiple tubes and needles in him and is extremely lethargic. On a small bright note, he no longer has a fever and his glucose level went down a little. Thanks for the prayers and best wishes. -Kat

Eloi, Twyla and Sandoz raise their tails erect in approval for Q-Tip. They are also sending therapeutic purrs down from the after life.

Default really?

Were those your kitties? And is that an actual picture of them? Beautiful. And the names are wonderful. I especially enjoy "Eloi". I should have been an ancient Egyptian because I do believe I worship cats. Well, at least I admire them to a large degree. I think they are the most beautiful and graceful of animals. I must have been one in a past life... Thank you Bansai. I go to ICHC daily for perspective..

I do hope that tip will not be joining them anytime soon, no offense. I'd like to keep him around a while longer. But tell them to say hello to Inky..she's a love.

P.S. I got the Eloi and Twyla references, but Sandoz I will look up.

Default Eloi, Twyla & Sandoz

These three were felines that my ex-wife got custody of after the divorce. This was 25 years ago. They still seem very much alive to me. The picture is just an internet image. I suppose I could scan an old photograph and post it here, but the image probably wouldn't look too sharp. Nonethless, the picture I posted reminds me of the bearing, carriage and camaraderie (when they weren't fighting) that my cats shared. Eloi was named for a a race of little blue persons in HG Wells' "The Time Machine." Twyla was named for Twyla Tharp, a choreographer who worked with David Byrne and ?Billy Joel???, among others. As for Sandoz, yeah, I guess you'll have to look that up. I don't think I can imagine having three more wonderful cats in my life, but if I had three more today, I'd love them just as much. Hope everything works out for you and Q-Tip. Love, the ne'er-do-well.

Default my angels

I got the reference of the Eloi and Twyla, and I'm sure they meant a lot to you. Lil kitties are so unusually diverse in their personalities. Would love to see an actual pic. I am amazed at how beautiful cats can be.

I want my duck back, meaning my Tip loves water and has a tendency to "quack". (uh oh.. tearing up)
One of the reasons the diabetes went undiagnosed was because of that love of water. Diabetic cats tend to drink more than usual. He always has though. If the vets can get him to eat then he might be able to come home. But, as strange as it is, I have a chunky, picky cat. He's been offered a smorgasbord of delectable kitty type delights, but has never eaten anything but the normal food that I've given him. Go figure. Never thought a cat that DOESN'T beg for food would be a problem.

Well, if you have a pic of the trio, or any one of them I would love to see it. My stress level is up and kitties help. My other kitty (T-Bone) keeps searching the house for his nemesis. That is also a problem.

Babbling, tired. Worried. Thanks for your response!

Thinking of you and Tip.
