This sweater pleases me

No news yet on my mom's surgery. However, we did learn last night that one of Jim's aunts died yesterday.   Tucker is also not feeling well. He has a giant pustule on his chin (it's a severe form of kitty acne, like a giant sore. I've been to the vets and done research but can't find much information). I feel so bad about it; it must be quite painful and there's nothing I can do. He puked his breakfast this morning too. Purrs that he's feeling better soon. :-(

A couple of weeks ago, I made a bed from one of my sweaters and put it on the futon. Tucker was quite happy about that, and scrunched away.

That was very smart of you :)

Sorry to hear about Jim's aunt. I hope things get better for you all soon!

(as for the chin, does Tucker eat out of a bowl or off a plate? Sometimes just rubbing the chin on a bowl can be enough to set acne off on a cat that is prone to it.)

I've heard about the bowl thing, too. Brandi had problems. Sometimes there is a reaction to certain kinds of plastic. We had to change the kind of bowls we use. Metal seems to work best. The acne went away.
Maybe that's why Tucker is upset. He's sensitive about his looks. Let's hope that's all.

Purrs and "purrayers" to Jim and his aunt's family, to your mom and of course to Tucker, as always. Hope you find a remedy for his chin. :-/

Oh sweet Tucker! One of my angel kitties had one of these growing on his chin too. The vets said to just leave it, it'll burst and it did and it became a blister then healed up ok. But it was awful to live with! :-( Poor Tucker! Me and Charlie are sending you tons of healing hugs and purrs.

We are sorry to hear about Jim's aunt. Please accept our deepest condolences.

We hope mum is ok too! Hugs to gorgeous Sadie and Benny! Take care

Tucker, you look so cozy on Mommy's sweater and I bet it still had her sweet scent on it. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Many purrs to yours and Jim's family, and we're all hoping your Mom is doing OK, considering.

Mommy has had to lance some of our pimples, we squirm like mad but it does feel good once it's done.

Sorry about the loss of a family member. Sweet Tucker, red is your color. I enjoy Mom's clothes if she leaves it lying around. We hope Mom's leg gets better soon.
