flybabe, I'm sorry. It could have been anything, there are a number of kitten diseases. Please take the rest of the family to the vet for checkups. He could have passed whatever he had to the others...

I'm sorry flybabe

My new landlord and his wife foster cats for the local SPCA. On Sunday he was telling me about one kitten they have right now who has a neurological problem. He purrs and plays and is happy, then all of a sudden he'll be walking and will just fall over or bang into something. They're hopeful he'll adjust enough to still be able to lead a relatively normal life, but they're going to play a big part in helping to decide the quality of life the little guy could have, and if it's not good, well,

I guess that leads into my big news--Jack and I are moving next month! We're moving about an hour away, to the town where I'm now teaching. The apartment we'll be in is the lower level of a raised ranch home, and the house has a big yard with plenty of wildlife. There's a bird sanctuary very close by, so Jack will be in heaven! The windows are nice and deep, so I'm sure he'll be on patrol all the time. The place is completely renovated, but since the landlord is so cat-friendly, he's not asking that I pay an extra deposit for Jack, which is amazing.

I have some newish pictures of Jack and my parents' cats Leon and Logan that I'll have to post when I have time later in the week.

It's always nice to see some good news. And cat-friendly landlords are few and far between.

Lucia had some obvious neurological problems as a kitten and early 'adolescent', which was when we got her from the shelter. They told us a lot of stray cats are like that. It wasn't quite as bad as your landlord's kitten, I don't think, because she never fell down while simply walking, but she did often crash into things, and when she tried to move any faster than a walk it looked like one of those suspended swing roller coasters, with her back rolling strangely and her legs flying every which way. Eventually she mastered running, but she still occasionally crashes into things if she gets excited and goes too fast, and she's never been able to jump well--about half her jumps end with her falling unceremoniously back on the floor on her butt, and even the jumps she nails aren't very high. It probably wasn't until she was a year old or maybe even a little older that she made it to this stage, though. Basically, it's as if she has some motor control problems (e.g. running) she slowly learned to compensate for, but also some coordination problems (e.g. how to properly direct her body through space) that she's never really been able to overcome. I don't think she'd do well outdoors. But she's a happy cat, not bothered at all by her clumsiness and fine for an all-indoors life where there's no major opportunities for her to hurt herself.

Aw man! I want that snow shoe!!!

After 3 weeks with the cat door propped open, I closed it last night. Posh is the only one going through, though I've heard it swinging so I know the others are trying!!
