Dear Joylina, I thought I'd write and let you know that Homer's doing very well, In fact, I can hardly believe the change in him. Before Christmas, he was starting to look (and act) a bit old and miserable, not wanting to play or go out much. He was also going a bit thin - he's always been a very lean cat, but at that time I could feel his backbone and his ribs through his fur...
Now, however, he's put the weight back on and, when he's not asleep, he's full of miscief again, playing and chasing round with our other cat, Marly, going out ot visit his various friends and lounging round in the sun (on those rare occasions it shines!). He's also got his appetite back and is interested in what's going on again.
Most amazingly of all, however, is that his miaow is coming back. (I don't think I ever told you, but he was so upset when Bradly went that his miaow disappeared completely, even though he'd always been a very vocal cat. He could still make other noises, but all his miaows were silent ones.) Over the last month or so, however, he's started to miaow again and, althoguh it's still a bit thin and reedy, it's definitely a miaow!
So, many thanks again from both of us for the healing thoughts you're sending him. We really do appreciate it - and I had a lovely letter from Haven House, thanking me for the donation I sent them (which I told them was being sent in thanks for the healing you'd sent to Homer).
With love and all best wishes,
