It was enough of a shock last thanksgiving to deal with formerly 26 lb, blue eyed Flame point - Gentle giant Simba to develop acute diabetes now 12 lbs and holding, but now my formerly asymptomatic FIV (Feline Aids) feral save barn cat, Oscar is now wasting away and voraciously hungry. He suddenly is aggressive for attention all the time now. With me he has tripled his life expectancy that the vet gave him 13 years ago for this 17 year old geriatric mouser who tried to take down a deer in my back yard. Girlfriends and wives have come and gone but my cats have always been with me. Can't hardly imagine life without them. They are both half their weight from a year ago. It's only a matter of time with Oscar who has outlived 4 other cats so far. There is not a lot that can be done for him. When they both start suffering quality of life I know what I need to do and can't imagine life without these two little furry demanding and lovable monsters. Just a vent to folks I know who get it..
