Aww - I was hoping to see some "forever home" pics of Mousse :sad:

Hopefully he'll be on the road again soon, and this time for good!

I do too. He is such a sweetheart, needs some weight on him; I suspect there have been a few missed meals lately, due to the stress of his mother dying and then being hauled off to the clinic. He's eating OK now and is peeing well.
The clinic gave me his history today. In 2006, he had three bouts of a urinary infection and was treated with Clamavox and put on Royal Canin Urinary O/S. No episodes since. I'm willing to bet it was at least partly situational; maybe his mother went to hospital or there was some other family drama. Just speculating.
He has the lowest grade of heart murmur.
Otherwise, he's a healthy boy. Tiny little paws and a rat's tail but otherwise quite pretty, gorgeous eyes.
Not a lap cat yet, but could become one!

Badger,I think many people who do not know cats,or any pet for that matter,don't realize how much the loss of a loving owner means to them:sad:
I feel especially cats,are such creatures of habits,upsetting their world can cause all kinds of problems.
Just taking your cat to the vet and seeing the relief when he's back home,is enough proof of that.
Mousse has a lot of adjusting to do and I hope whoever adopts himwill give him time,time to adjust to a new life..
When my son got his now 14yr old Sheltie Trixie,after the owner passed,Trixie would sit by the front-door for weeks,waiting for her owner to come get her.
I am sure Mousse is in turmoil too..

Moussey is still here, holding his own with the mob, whom he more or less ignores. He is a very calm fellow, keeps to himself but doesn't hide. He enjoys lying on me when I am horizontal in front of the TV - prime real estate! Yesterday I caught him playing. All good signs.
No forever home as yet :sad:. His age should really not be a barrier; he is not on any medication, eats and drinks well. I feed him in the crate, safe from raiders, and when I start lining up the bowls he goes in there by himself and waits quietly for his share. Such a gentleman.
