Ziggy is a 14 year old Domestic Shorthair. My family adopted Ziggy when he was a very young kitten from a friend at school whose cat had a litter. He was the last boy when we finally got there to pick one out, and he was the runt, with a stumpy tail. His mom was ignoring/shunning him, and we had to teach him how to eat and hand-feed him because he was eating the litter when he first came home!
At this age, he basically just likes to lay around near people. If you lay down on the floor, he'll come and snuggle with you. When we go to bed, he's always right there waiting to get a spot. He does have a small "fake mouse on a string" toy he plays with once in a while, though! He also enjoys taking the dry food out of his bowl with his paw and then eating it off the floor. I don't really understand that, but it's cute!
Ziggy will definitely be in my prayers, and you, too, to accept whatever happens. He has had a very good life, I can tell! God bless both of you!
He's a likeable mellow guy. Sorry he's got a serious health challenge, hope he can overcome it and enjoy life a bit longer. What more could anyone, critter or human, ask?
Healing energy and blessings are being sent to Ziggy and, you, his wonderful person.
What a sweet story! I'm glad he's found a home with you, and I'll keep you all in my prayers, God bless you!
Thanks everyone for your kind words. Ziggy is on chemo now (pills) and is doing well except for a low white count. He has an ear infection and isn't thrilled with the medication he's getting for that or the oral antibiotics he's getting for his low white count, but he's still a big ol' pile of love and eating! =)
