Well said, LBF. :) I've got a few monsters who are just like that and though they make me want to scream, I can't imagine the house without them. :)

Holy crap I just realised Bob Seger is another good god of mine. He's currently touring but it only goes to remind me that I live on a cold foggy Atlantic island. Nobody comes here. (I'd better keep my mouth shut since the Eagles are coming here fo the first time ever in July.)

Sakura, I'm glad Peggy seems to be doing better, even if it is a drowsy better :) Hope to find out soon what's causing her fur loss!

Matt said if I can find places for them I can have as many tanks as I want. I'm not sure he realises what he's done. Now all I need are extra outlet boosters.

I was wondering why I kept getting up so late... Alarm clock isn't set for daylight savings.

Knock on wood, but I found the perfect job for me. I just hope the employer responds...

I very gently put just the very tip of the eyedropper into his mouth. If he is gasping or breathing heavily, wait until he opens his mouth. It helps. I can't say if this method works or not but it's how I tried it. It's like the fish equivalent of feeding soup to a sick person.

Peggy did well at the vet because she LOOOOOOOOOVES the attention. Haha, the vet was actually trying to annoy her so she'd stop purring because the vet couldn't hear her heartbeat. Vet put her on prednisone for a week so we can rule out any possible allergies. If that doesn't help her stop with the licking/chewing, then it's probably behavioral and then I imagine things get tricky. :/ If it's an allergy, then I'm 99% sure it's a food allergy since this is an indoor only kitty.

Peggy does have Siamese in her somewhere (wouldn't know from her fat stubby appearance though). She is a talker too. Jen, I think my cat and your Old Man are related. Haha, except Peggy is a grump when it comes to other cats.

Crowntail, have you been to a vet? From what I learned today, it could be an allergy and if it is, they can treat it.
Yup, actually a few. We've treated her for worms just in case she had them, did a flea dip and constant flea treatments, tried different foods in case it was an allergy, nothing worked. She is still the same. She's happy most of the time, never breaks skin, so for now it's fine. Just a bit annoying.
