Final Feline Ailments
LAP FUNGUS DISORDER

Symptoms: Having taken over a human lap, the cat proceeds to spread in all planes. This may be accompanied by secondary symptoms such as high volume purring, dribbling, kneading and snoring. The condition is highly contagious and several fungoid cats may infest a lap simultaneously.

Treatment: Topical treatment with proprietary anti-fungals is ineffective. Prompt treatment (as per Irritable Lap Syndrome) is required to alleviate the worst symptoms although in a number of cats, such treatment actually exasperates the condition. This disorder manifests itself periodically through the affected cat's life and there is no long-term cure.

SMURGLING

Symptoms: Varied: sucking at clothing, owner's earlobes/ nose/fingers/skin, drooling, glazed expression. Often accompanied by kneading and high volume purring.

Treatment: Ultimately incurable. It is possible to remove smurglable items from around the cat. The ailment may be transmitted to humans in the form of large laundry bills, misshapen clothing and chapped skin.

GREEBLINGZ

Symptoms: Random dashes to helter-skelter running through house in pursuit of unseen prey. Greeblingz are believed to be non-visible entities and some authorities have linked them to UFO sightings or feel that they may be diminutive other-dimensional beings. Cats suffering from greeblingz typically have wild-eyed expressions. There is a minor danger of greeblingz attaching themselves to humans; if a cat tackles such greeblingz, injury to humans may result. A very few cats are naturally immune.

Treatment: None known. Anti-epileptics are ineffective as the condition appears unrelated to other forms of seizure. Avoid getting in the way of a cat engaged in greebling hunting. Attacks usually subside spontaneously, perhaps as greeblingz return to their own dimension. These irritating creatures are not visible to human eyes, but no doubt the superior sight and hearing of cats enables them to see them.

These are all the feline ailments I have in my files, but I'll bet many of you know of some of your own!

More Feline Ailments
NON SPECIFIC INSECT INFESTATION (also NONSPECIFIC SPIDER INFESTATION)

Symptoms: A disorder more prevalent among outdoor-going cats and cats with access to attics and basements. Symptoms range from minor (the odd greenfly in tail, money-spider on fur) to severe (entire ecosystems of insects living on cat, spider webs spun between ears/whiskers, cat so weighed down with spider webs that it has difficulty walking).

Treatment: Minor symptoms can be treated by simply removing the infesting agent (aphid, ladybug, spider, etc.) and combing webs out of fur. If the cat suffers recurrent or severe symptoms an exercise regime is highly recommended since highly mobile cats appear to attract fewer greenfly (research into this factor continues).

IRRITABLE LAP SYNDROME

Symptoms: The cat appears unable to settle comfortably on laps, instead treading, kneading, rearranging itself, fidgeting, vocalizing, getting up and turning around, falling off lap and getting back on again, attacking magazines, needlework, computer keyboard, telephone, etc.

Treatment: Immediate treatment is essential. Drop whatever you are doing (literally if need be) and give 100% attention to the sufferer, otherwise symptoms may escalate and become quite distressing to the lap-owner. Only prolonged attention will cure an attack of Irritable Lap Syndrome. Like Collapsible Legs this syndrome is incurable, although attacks may be effectively treated as and when they occur.

More tomorrow!

Feline Ailments
Having conquered cat flu, triumphed over tapeworm and braved behavioral quirks, it is time to focus attention on some oft-observed, but little-documented, afflictions of cats.

COLLAPSIBLE LEGS

Symptoms: The affected cat places one side of its head on the ground as though cheek-marking the concrete, carpet, etc. After several such maneuvers, the legs on that side of the cat suddenly collapse, leaving the cat waggling its feet in the air.

Treatment: This involves placing the palm of one hand on the exposed belly and rubbing gently. There are side-effects though some feline sufferers attack the rubbing hand while others recover spontaneously, often after prolonged treatment. This condition is probably incurable and any cat which requires prolonged treatment after an attack will most likely suffer repeated attacks of collapsible legs throughout its lifetime.

SNUDGING

Symptoms: The affected cat repeatedly headbutts any available part of a readily available human and turns its head slightly so that the lips and cheek are rubbed against legs, arms, clothing, etc. This condition gets its name from a contraction of the phrase "soggy nudging." Snudging may well be a form of excessive scent-marking. A bad attack can result in soggy clothing.

Treatment: Give the sufferer lavish affection. Most attacks subside between 10 minutes to 1 hour after onset of symptoms. You may need to dry off snudged clothing or skin. Attacks recur frequently, usually when the most readily available human is engrossed in a TV program, book or telephone call.

BED-HOGGING

Symptoms: The cat spreads to take up all available free bed space at night. It then expands a bit more until any human occupants occupy the smallest possible area of bed. It may do this on top or underneath the covers or on the pillow. It is highly contagious -- any other cats on the bed will also develop symptoms of bed-hogging.

Treatment: The most obvious solution is to evict the cat from the bed. If this is morally unfeasible, train yourself not to give way as the cat expands. Buying a bigger bed is probably pointless as most affected cats can easily expand to fill standard, queen-sized and king-sized beds. Otherwise, simply train yourself to sleep while hanging precariously off the side of the bed. Attacks of bed-hogging have been known to last up to 23 hours (in one case a 3-day attack was noted by a cat-owner who was confined to bed with flu; the cat thoughtfully kept her company during this time).

More ailments tomorrow!

Hello Mary
Are you ANGEL Mary that your mom was telling me about? I'm always happy to meet new furriends up here, and mom likes to know who I'm hanging out with, too. Just to make sure I'm not hanging around with the wrong crowd, you know? Of course I'd never do that. I love mom too much to embarrass her, even up here where she would probably never know.

Leaving you all votes.

Little Miss
We are so sorry that your Mom is still so sad over Angel Louie. I know it was recently that Angel Louie went to Rainbow Heaven. Mom will feel better as time goes on. We still miss our Angele's Mary and Lucy, but it has been a long time since we sent Mary to Rainbow Heaven. Angel Lucy lived 5 years after that. Give her time and keep showing her how much you love her everyday. She appreciates it and loves you all so much. I will give you all votes today also. Angel, Pio, Gabby Jude, Angel's Mary and Lucy and our Mommy and Daddy.

Come visit me, Jude, Gabby, Mary, Lucy, Pio, Angel & Red Dawg.

Louie kisses
Oh Dear Louie, my Mommy is at a surgi center while my Daddy is having 2 procedures and you make her want to cry, but she is talking to a nice lady and won't. I was very little when they adopted me from a poor family who had to move. Mommy and Daddy were doing home visits for St. Vincent de Paul and that is how we met. I never got very big and then I got very sick, but I know they loved me very much. We will be all together again someday. Kitty kisses to you and your family also. I am going to throw you another vote.

Come visit me, Jude, Gabby, Mary, Lucy, Pio, Angel & Red Dawg.

Hello Mary
It's sad your mom didn't have you very long. My mom and dad didn't have me very long, either. I was just 2 1/2 years old when Bastet (^-^) called me to be with her. I miss my mom, but I know I don't miss her as much as she misses me. She loved me so much. We wish we could go back and be with them again, don't we? I know I sure do.

I left you another vote. Kitty kisses, too. Louie

Copper, Zuri, Noah & Katey.
Thank you for your kind words,
We still have 4 kitties. One of them, Jude is black. We adopted him from the vet about 3 years ago. Along with Red Dawg we think that we have enough 4 legged children at home to love. But, if there is an emergency kitty along the way to love, we will. Have a great day!

Come visit me, Jude, Gabby, Mary, Lucy, Pio, Angel & Red Dawg.

We are so sad that you had such a short time here on earth but you were very lucky to have a family that loved you so. Maybe your family will want to get another all black kitty to love not to replace you, certainly, but, there are so many that need good homes!

Come visit me, Copper, Black Jack Tate ( Tate for short), Zuri, Noah & Katey.

Mary came to live with us when she was a little kitten. She was living with a family who had to move and couldn't have any pets so we adopted her. She was always a little kitty and never grew much. One day we took her to the vet, because she was sick. We found out that she had feline leukemia and there wasn't anything that could be done so she went to Rainbow Heaven that day. Then we had to take all our other kitties to be tested and we found out that Lucy had it also. She lived for 5 more years. I remember Mary as being so little and sweet, but I don't remember much more. She did fit in and she became a part of our family. RIP Mary and Lucy. You are together in Rainbow Heaven and we will be together again someday!

Come visit me, Jude, Gabby, Mary, Lucy, Pio, Angel & Red Dawg.
