 "Mom put me in some silly Halloween contest because she thought my picture looked scary.  HA!  I do not merely look scary I am scary!!  muahahahahahaha!  I love Halloween.  Now if Charlotte just felt better."

Charlotte Update...

 "Mom has heard from Charlotte's Mom.  This is the email she sent..."
Yes I do[PayPal account]. It is listed under this email addy[] and the name  julie hanes all lower case.
Charlotte is still here, still not drinking or eating that we can tell. The other cats are keeping watch over her (Dusty is stoopid but still sweet and a good 'healer kitty'). They stay near her. She is resting on a soft sleeping bag in a corner of the living room. Her breathing is fast (about 6X what the other cats' breathing rate is). She doesn't want to be touched or held. She'll put up with it for a few minutes then jump down and go back to her spot.  She's 17-18 years old now, and has tumors. I don't know if she caught pneumonia when Sean came down with it. Or a cold when Scarlett got one. Or if it's simply time.  For all I know she may pull through this ok. But she's gotten so scrawny and WASTED over the past year or two. And she has "that look" in her eyes right now. Kinda distant and unfocused. And the rasping of her breath is louder than her purr. :(  Her fur looks funny/different too, reminds me of a cat I had once who went in to insulin shock. Her fur looks kinda like that. We are (sorta) prepared to lose her, but sad about it.  I know you understand. She's been with us a long time. I just hope she's not hurting, she doesn't seem to be in great pain, just sick and possibly dying pain. ya know?
