I have this wonderful cat named Albert (whose name changed to Boots after my youngest sister couldn't quite pronounce Albert) who has been around for a whole 14 years this month! He grew from a scrawny little rat-like kitten to a strong butthead cat and now has grown old, into a thin and calm kitty who loves getting scratched under the neck and sleeping on the couch. He was diagnosed with FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, much like HIV) a few years ago, and he has been doing pretty well since we got him on medication. Unfortunately he has recently been getting more ear problems, as well as anemia, and he is losing a lot of his fur due to his immune system winding down. It is rough to see him suffer and we are considering putting him down in sometime in the next few weeks :(
He is my little guy and I love him so much. I will try and make a few more little doodles about my favorite memories of him soon.
