MAXMOM here...

Hello there to all my friends across the world!
No, this is not a kitty blog!...but a little diversion from my normal posts.
I've been rather busy in the past two days and apologise for my absence.
I thought I'd surprise you all with this special kitty picture...

You see, this is "Monty" - our Vet's cat - a kitty that really touches my heart.
He was originally a rescue kitty and has been the heart of our Vet's waiting room for a number of years.
He's the largest cat I have ever seen and he is formidable in his determination to assess every patient that enters the premises.  Indeed he has become quite a legend in his environment.

The reason I'm posting a picture of him is that I know he is sick at the moment.
I am not sure what his prognosis is, but I just wanted to pay tribute to this beautiful creature and the joy he has brought to all our lives whilst we have anxiously waited for our own pets to be attended to.  I am very fond of him and I do hope that he will get better soon.
Get well Monty!



If you'd like to see some more pictures of my new puppy whose anticipated arrival in our household is still three weeks away please visit:

Thank you, Mrs JP for putting up your lovely post!

(Hopefully I'll be visiting the pup again this weekend)
In the meantime, I send you all lotsaluv and...
Have a wonderful weekend!

I once had a big kitty too! I got him for free and from the day I brought him home, he cost me a pretty penny. His original owners never told me he had any medical problems. I'm glad I got him though instead of him remaining with the original owners. They hadn't even gotten his shots. My poor kitty has passed on almost 2 years ago and I still miss him even today.

I will keep Monty in my prayers. He sure is a handsome guy! My old vet used to have a cat who roamed around but the one I go to now doesn't.

I checked out that blog and your boy is so darn cute!!! I can't wait until you get to bring him home. Then we can have new pictures every single day!

Hi MaxMom
Thanks very much for introducing me to Monty. I must say he looks a very fine fellow. Personally, I haven't quite made up my mind about cats yet. Dome in our neighbourhood seem nice, others scary!
Toodle pip!

Power of the Paw for sweet Monty!

Oh C, your new pup is adorable! I know you can't wait to get him home!

KB said...

Love the photos of your little guy. He is looking more and more like a real dog every day! Awww, and he's so cute!

Get well Monty. I must say, however, that I'm glad that you're not in my vet's waiting room. My R would have apoplexy. Apparently, he's so obsessed with cats that the vet has learned to put a cat in a crate on the opposite side of the "procedures room" when she needs to do anything unpleasant to him. He just stares at the cat, not noticing the needles or anything else! Don't worry, she does it in such a way that the cat isn't scared at all (our first question)!

Monty is a handsome fellow we hope and pray the cause to his illness will be found and he will be good as new soon,
