    I will have to watch again when I get home (I don't have speakers at work) but my cat also "chats" with various kinds of birds. It's very amusing.

    Sophia's cat sounds just like mine when she is talking to birds or flies. Never makes those noises at any other time. I wonder if it has to do with the wing action of both - that they both fly? Funny...

    Gustav (Gus for short) staring up at me at my computer. He enjoys sitting on paper, playing with his catnip ball, being hand-fed anything (no onions or chocolate of course) and playing in the water.

    Vladimir (Vlad for short)...also comes when you make kissing sounds or announce you have "poof" for him (sparkly round toys). The most utterly nice animal I've ever known, always ready to play but never purrs (he did when he was tiny):

    Lovely, and so different from mine! Is Thaisun a Havana Brown?... I could be wrong. It's been a long time since I thought about any breeds other than Exotic Shorthairs and Persians! It's fun to see all of them though.

    Thank you! Thaisun is a brown Burmese. I think Burmese in UK are quite different to those in US these days.

    I too enjoy seeing them all, especially the long-haired cats. I could never cope with one but I just love the way they look. It's funny how people go for completely different things, I can't see myself getting anything other than another Burmese any more even though it was only yesterday that I noticed teeth marks all over my Dend. kingianum and he's now bugging me to play fetch incessantly :rolleyes:

    I think it's more of a case of "couldn't possibly miss out on any action". Most curious cat I've ever encountered.

    These cat pics are making me feel better.

    Some of you might remember my cat Lefty from earlier threads where he was shown eating his favorite snack, cantaloupe. ( http://www.slippertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1042 )

    Well, he died suddenly on Monday night. I think what hurts the most is that when I was having a really sh$tty day, I would cuddle with him for some "fuzz therapy." And now that I am having some really sh$tty days, it's because he isn't here.

    Anyway, I threw together a cheesy slideshow trying to help us cope. If you want to see it you can go here... http://www.zerofournine.com

    J, You know - I've already said it.
    Lefty is at peace - I'm certain he's enjoying a nice big bowl of cantaloupe as we speak.
    He's also inspired me to eat more fruit. :)

    Glad this thread is helping you at least feel a little better. (((hugs)))

    I'm really sorry to hear that, I found your slideshow so touching. We was obviously very special to you.

    My first ever cat was a big white & ginger tom who also loved melon. I could never understand that.

    It's hard to come up with anything better to say than I'm sorry in that tears welling up sort of way after watching that, and I know just how you must be feeling. What also came to mind though is that sudden was probably better than months of vet visits and sickness, watching someone you've loved for years decline and knowing there's probably nothing you can do about it. I'm sure that's not much of a consolation though. It's a reminder for me that when Gus (who will be 13 this year) sits in the middle of the floor hanging his head in boredom wishing I'd comb him or play for a bit, I should probably put down my paint brush and do it while I can. You never know when the last chance to interact with a pet, family member or friend has passed.

    You are right Robin. Monday night he was cuddling with me on the couch for ten minutes or so. He came to bed with us like he always does, and smothered my wife with kisses. Then five minutes later he made a weird sound, and was dead before I turned the light on. It is consolation that he died with us, and that it was fast for him. I spoke to a vet today who confirmed what I already suspected. It was probably an aneurism that killed him. In all, it was a completely horrible event that played out as good as it possibly could have.

    The only thing I regret is not having more pictures and video of him. I realized quickly that you can never have enough of these things when you are missing someone.
