All truth be told, the little guy had me worried and I am glad to have him back home. :o)
Stripe was also quite happy and grateful to see the kind comments and good wishes for him these past few days and wanted to thank you ever so much.

He came in Friday, had his dinner and then didn't show up on Saturday morning. At first I thought nothing of it. He has been neutered but still has the travel bug and goes wandering off every now and then. He usually makes his re-appearance later on in the day. He never stays away longer than a day.
So when Sunday morning rolled around and he still didn't show up I started to worry a bit. By Sunday evening I knew something had happened to him.
He finally showed up this morning (Monday) and his face looked a little funny. On closer examination he looks like he's been in a really serious fight. His mouth wouldn't close and his face looked swollen. He doesn't show any interest in food or water. He won't allow me to take a closer look in his mouth (growls, scratches and hisses) or face but I do get close enough to notice that his mouth smells really...I mean really bad. Oh oh...
This is where it gets kind of gross so be warned.
Well...it turns out that Stripe has a broken jaw and a really nasty cut in the back of his mouth. The smell? Well most of you pet owners might know that smell. The cut in his mouth was infected with...maggots (Jamaica has a really serious screw worm problem). :-(
So my poor baby is in the kitty hospital tonight for the first time in his life.
How he got that jaw broken and that cut all the way in the back of his mouth (toward his throat) is completely baffling to us all. But then again, Stripe is the most curious cat I know. He probably stuck his head somewhere it didn't belong, as he usually does. :-(

The pictures above from top to bottom :
Max : I had just got my new printer, had just taken it out of the box and was in the middle of setting it up. I saw a flash of black in the corner of my eye and heard some scuffling. When I glanced over, there was Max sitting proudly in his box looking up at me with that oh so surprised look! He does it every single time. :)
BJ : I think this is his cutest picture yet because it's the only one I have that shows up his blue eyes! :-) He was actually staring at a lizard that was perched right below me. I don't think he was pleased when I snapped this picture and scared the lizard away!
Sebastian: Ahh...there are so many pictures of Sebastian that are THE cutest! Ha! How do I choose just one?! I don't know why I chose this one...I just love how his paw is sticking out. ;-)Sasha : I love this one because I think her colours are so pretty against the green lawn.
Stripe: I just adore this picture of Stripe. He was a kitten at the time and loved playing in this grass.
KC : Doesn't she just look like a perfect little lady? :)

What is it about dirty water that attracts cats so? :-D

This picture was taken a couple of days after I got Sebastian. I'm amazed at how fast he has grown since this picture!

My house is being painted. The window sills were painted a bright, crisp, white yesterday. They looked so nice and clean and it really freshened up the place a bit.

Well, Miss Rachel, I think your tummy has to be the most beautiful tummy I have ever seen. And no, I don't say that to all the girls.
And since you showed me yours, I wanted to impress you with mine :-D
No those are not tufts of fur...those are my rock hard abs...heh heh ;-)

He doesn't like it when people come by for a visit. In fact, BJ doesn't really like anybody...except when he's hungry. Then, then he is the friendliest cat you could ever meet. :) He's been this way ever since he was a kitten. He's never been through any trauma, except the trauma of birth!

She spends every other waking and sleeping hour outdoors. She drinks water only from every puddle, pool and every possible dirty watering hole that is outside. She apparently does not like the taste of fresh water in a clean bowl.
