...that sounds an aweful lot like you're describing me!...except for the "he" part.

My cat which looks like a lab rat- white with pink ears- broke its leg at 5 months old and I paid 1500 to get it repaired by an orthopaedic veterinary surgeon. It is now bionic. And yes, I am mad.

To spend all that on a tiny rat-like moggy of course!

You mean ..............(since you did not copy over the last symtpom) you don't lick your paws then?

 ;D


Hmmmm - you're certainly not suffering from 'end of the line when brains got handed out' like my cat; *that* much I can tell you for certain.


A set of glasses might help perhaps??

 ;D



I often wondered about that with dubdub (the cat).
How would one know if a cat needed glasses and would there be such a thing?

Aww...thanks! (I took an extra one while I was there...kidding.)
I do manage to avoid the temptation of licking my paws.

LOL - Iko, you ARE very observant.

You know how long it took me to find a piccie just like that??

I meant it as a 'double-entendre' since I addressed the problem of glasses both for cats and squarish triangle.
But thanks for pointing it out anyways; I'm sure not many would have noticed otherwise.
 ;D

Not only clever but also steadfast of mind.

I'd still like to know about glasses for cats though if anyone can oblige .
Possible? Not possible? Contact lenses perhaps? Tell me to shut up and get lost maybe....
