well i grew up with cats, i will be 20 now and one of the cats that i have had since she was a kitten is still here - she is 15/16 years old. she was the family cat, i recently moved out and took my dog with me - however Lucky kept getting injured by other animals outside as she had several cuts on her neck, this year. she went to the vet and he said that it was to do with her immune system, she had an over active thyroid and she had to operation to sort that. i also recently found out she was deaf. she could scratch this until it bled and was red raw - i put breathable bandages on her which worked for a little while and my mum tried to keep her in - however she would escape. well as i live in a flat i decided it would be best if she stayed with me, she has always been an indoor and outdoor cat - but i thought she would like her home comforts and lots of TLC. yesterday was the first time she stayed at mine, and she was great - i even allowed her to sleep in the bed with me Well today is a different story i gave her some food, she ate some then walked into the hall and started calling me, as cats do - i walked out to see if she was okay. obviously i couldn't shout on her because she cant hear me but as soon as she saw me she came running. she went into the kitchen as i did the dishes and did the same thing again! lately she has been walking about the house calling me as if she is a bit worried. she is meowing constantly, she has actually gave me a soar head she is meowing that much. Now every time i look at her she starts meowing She is loving sitting on my lap as a type - she is purring away any advise for little old lucky?
