    Some of you may remember my 17 year old little buddy, Lightnin' the cat, who was found in a taxicab engine compartment as a tiny babe. Well, Lightnin' is still with us, but he's been slowing down a lot lately. Mrs. G took Lightnin' to the vet this morning and they diagnosed him with cardiomyopathy. Vet says about the best we can do is keep him comfortable and it shouldn't affect his life up until the end. Lightnin's made a career of being comfortable so I don't see that as a problem. Doc says it's hard to say how long he'll last - six months or years. You never know.

    Anyway, if you have an extra prayer or good vibe, I'm sure Lightnin' would appreciate it. He's happy enough for now. ;)

    Sending a prayer up for Lightnin'. I have a feeling he'll be around for a while just to beat the odds.

    Prayers are sent for Lightnin. Give your furry little guy a scratch behind the ears for me. May he live a long healthy life for many years to come.

    Cats are the best!

    If you need a replacement, I could send you 18 year old Ruger and his 19 year old mom, Kiki.
