    Amazing what a little love, care, and feeling wanted can do for growth (inside and out)!!!
    PS, Are you going to The Gorge this weekend? Your son's t-shirt suggested a possible Dead show in your future?

    Yeah he grew so fast lol , he is my piggy kitty though so I have to watch what my son feeds him as he likes to give him extra scoops when he begs ..
    I feel really stupid but Im not shure what you mean about the dead ?

    Sorry about that - there's a Grateful Dead reunion tour, and they're going to play The Gorge with the Allman Brothers and Doobie Brothers this coming weekend - I saw that you were from the Columbia River Gorge area...(?)..

    As for fat kitties - I feed a brand called "Chicken Soup For the Pet Lover's Soul Lite". First several ingredients are meats - no corn - might help with the weight concerns.

    The only places that have that food in my neck of the redwoods are the feedstores (they all do) and pet supply stores. Not Safeway, etc.

    Quote:Yeah I got very lucky and he isnt just huge he is really really mellow , now that my son is older he does get scratched a little in warning but when he was smaller the cat would jsut ether slink under the couch or you could jsut read his mind as he dangled from my sons arms " And people think cats are a pest"

    You know, cats (and all living critters) have their own "person"alities...once we invite them into our lives, it's up to us to work out any differences (ideally to OUR advantage!). All we need is the information THEY give us (via their behavior), and our ingenuity to make that behavior work for us. If the behaviour doesn't work for us, we need to reward the ones that do (works for kids too - get scratched=not working, etc., kisses are nice, yadda yadda). Anyway...Thanks for sharing your happy story! Those are always greatly appreciated!
