Hello and thank you to all....

Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.
Since the recall tragedy, I've been reading the many many informative posts on this site. I have to say, you ladies (and guys) ARE ON IT! Thank you so very much for everyone that has provided valuable info.

I’ve been planning on introducing myself to everyone, but in light of what's been going on the last few weeks it just didn't seem proper. They’re so many more important issues I just didn’t want to waste anyone’s time.

Though I'm new to cat forums, I'm not new to having cats as my companions. Been through the whole CRF with two of my loved ones, Konagirl & Simon (SySy). Simon (17ish) passed away in Sept 2005, while Kona (19) passed in Feb. 2006. Both had been diagnosed with CRF in 1999…..of course later that brought on the other issues, high blood pressure, anemia, etc to name a few. But both Kona and Simon were ‘tough’ cats. No matter how much we were going through they still had time to cuddle and purrrrr….they loved to be loved. The sub Q’s, meds, diets, allowed us to enjoy many years of happiness. I owe it to the Cat Clinic of Orange County (Dr. Diane Steinberg). She’s the one that proposed the Sub Q’s; most other vets around here just didn’t think it was an option (1999)….certainly not for a pet owner to do by themselves. Diane said nonsense, the treatment does prolong their life AND you can do it. I’m glad I did.

I still have two cats; my big boy Sake. I found him as a stray (‘97) when he was a kitten.
He looks like a blue pt, but has ever so slight tab in him (very faint stripes in tip of tail).
Plus his size (19lb) tells me he must have something else in him.
My other cat is Penny. She’s a torti. You know how some torti’s can be. She had belonged to my neighbor but he really didn’t take very good of care of her. When I told him I was feeding her, his response was “you can keep her.†O.K., she’s mine (’01) Straight to the vet for check up she went. Now she’s happy and warm inside my house.

I would also like to thank Clixpix once again, in the public forum, for her kind intro p.m.
Thx Clixpix.

Anyway, I’m glad I found this forum. Once again, thanks to everyone for all the valuable recall info. You cannot depend on print media for updates.

Dear Sake and Penny's Dad:

Thanks for the intro and gosh, you did so well to keep Konagirl and Simon going for so long with CRF, with good quality of life! My angel girl Moti passed just over 2 years ago from CRF; she kept going for 7months from the diagnosis, but she was not a really robust girl. I was just glad to be able to ensure her good quality of life for those months, thanks to our wonderful Dr. Ahmed and his "dream team". A good doctor and staff make all the difference; I know. My angel Sunny was an almost-record survivor after his diagnosis with FIP; he kept going for almost five good years thanks to our great Dr. Tremazi and his staff, and the "miracle drug", Immunoregulin.

THANK YOU for adopting Sake and Penny and loving them! Sake sounds like she could be on the Birman side, or a little bit Snowshoe with Lynx Point coloration. Penny sounds wonderful. My Tarifa is tortie, too -- and the sweetest cat anyone could imagine! I adopted her from a dear friend who does rescue/adoptions. When I told her I needed a cat who could fit into a large feline family, right away, she said, "Torie" (her name given by my friend). Not once has there been any friction between her and the others; right from the start, she was absolute purr-fection!
