I appreciate that.
It was a tough call but I'm confident I made the right decision. You see it wasn't a slam dunk as many of life's most important calls aren't. Basically he was constipated so I figured the vet would give him an enema and that'd pretty much be it. Unfortunately a barium x-ray showed a length of 9" and a 1.5" width of "stuff" in there. After spending $700 to find that out and very little progress from enemas, I was told that the next option would be to go to a specialist and remove his colon. That's hard on a cat and afterall, cats (especially older ones) need their colons. So it was kind of a shocker but the circle of life continues and we'll grow from this.
I love the tabby markings. The M on the forehead, stripes and all. I understand cats being pals and all but then there's the saying that "dogs live with you but cats just kind of let you live with them..."
