So, our old gentleman, Archie, has made a recovery from the mystery illness that laid him out for 3 weeks. Those of you who had the patience to hear about it at Comicon...(bless you) know that we were caring for him, spoonfeeding him and all sorts of stuff. We thought he was checking out at one point. But, he must have cashed in one of his nine lives because, he's better! He's eating on his own and happy to do so. He's himself again! Now he only controls my actions every 4 hours instead of every 45 minutes...
He's 18 years old! Ha- the little butterfly hunter! He's got some zip left in him.

This is such a great blog Jill. I love all the photos from SDCC. You walked right past me at one point, and I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your painting, but I never want to be "that guy" you know :)

This is my first time here though, so I'm going to take a look around. Thanks for sharing.

No matter what the age cats are always the "Great Hunter".

That's great news about Archie Jill! It's always hard seeing our little companions ill.
Our cat Sammy has FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and it hits him harder every once and a while where he loses energy and stops eating enough. It's hard and sometimes scary not seeing him his usual playful self.

What great pics of the piglet! Sorry to hear he's been ill, I had no idea. Poor fella. Looks like he's got some pep back in his step tho.

That's great news about the Pig-butt.

On a sadder note, I just got some bad news about Lucky...
He'd been living down in Columbus with Meg's folks who took REALLY good care of him. He'd been on several medications and eventually lost his sight.
None of which seemed to slow him down too much. I think he was a little older than Archie, I can't remember who came first. Anyway he finally gave up his ghost this past week. I was bummed to hear it, but he had a LONG run for a kitty.
