Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Quick Barney Update

I will do a real post Monday but I wanted to let everyone know Barney is good - the area where the fur was missing is already getting better on his chin - it was probably either a bit of kitty acne we caught early or he was hurt wrestling with one of his brothers and he was rubbing it because it was itchy. Either way it was better looking this morning and the fur is growing back. With the underarms we need to watch it but we don't really need to worry right now because it looks ok - no weird sores or anything. This could be him licking from stress so I need to watch, but I think that will be ok too - it looks like it could be starting to grow back already. His eyes are the only real issue and he is back on his eye goo - basically we just need to watch and whenever it comes back give him the eye meds. Lola was the same way as a kitten but has since grown out of it. The problem with Barney is that some of the eye stuff is worse then the cause so we just need to be sure that we keep the good stuff around - he is alergic to a more common one but even that he gets over very quickly - but it is just easier to keep track of the one that works well.

Thanks for all the good wishes - he was very not happy going to the vet but now is back to his normal, crazy self!

I am glad Barney is doing well now! Just in case it was kitty acne and it comes back, you could try putting a fatty acid supplement in his food. Harley had really bad acne with the black specks, missing furs, and then sometimes he would get big, red inflamed lumps under his chin that he had to get antibiotic injections for. Once he started the fish oil supplement, it cleared up in just a few days!

Hmm. I'm going to ask Daisy more about that supplement. Pimp tends to get the acne... Poor thing.

Glad to hear Barney is feeling better. Hope he can ALL better soon!

Keep feeling better sweet Barney!
I love his little devil picture.
I have been so busy taking care of my daughter who has the flu, that I am really behind in visiting again.
Hopefully, we'll get a breather from this soon.
How are you? I have been keeping you in my thoughts Amy.
Take care,
