All about Coco
In order to keep indoor cats inside the house it’s important to make sure that doors and windows are securely closed. It sounds obvious but cats are creative and very determined creatures and if there is a way for them to escape, they often will. This is especially true when cat owners (correctly) make the decision to turn their outdoor cats into indoor cats.
Windows are a favourite way for cats to escape. Make sure that all of the windows cannot be opened by your cat. If a window is left open slightly, some cats will use their paws to open it more fully. If there is no screen the cat can escape right then and there. If there is a screen, with just a bit of determination a cat might be able to break though it or slide it open. All you need to do to solve this problem is get a piece of wood and put it in the track of the window. Cut the length of wood so that when you place it in the window’s track, you can only open the window a few inches. Always make sure that your cat cannot squeeze through the opening space. Then to keep the wood in the track, screw it securely into the window frame.

Coco is a senior citizen to say the least. He will be 24 in January of 2005 and is still going strong. I did however think that I was losing him a couple of days ago when he became very despondent, began vomiting and then stopped eating. Upon observation at the animal clinic, he was discovered to have a severe urinary tract infection (thank goodness not his kidneys like I feared) and is currently on antibiotics which he is responding to favorably. He's just not ready to leave me yet!!!
When Coco was a kitten he was given to me by a lady who got him for her grandmother for companionship. Apparently he was too much for her to handle and was offered to me... I had another young Siamese at the time and she wanted NOTHING to do with him. Nonetheless, he did for her, and that's all that mattered. I lost my female, Fina, when she was almost 19 years old, a loss that will always remain heavy in my heart. Coco lives on and has made a huge impact on my life. I truly can't imagine what it would have been like without him by my side all these years, but I do thank God for all those wonderful years he's given me. For anyone who's ever had the pleasure of raising a Siamese, it's an experience like no other. The breed can be extremely unpredictable, demanding, but even moreso loving- unconditionally. I will cherish the remaining time I have with him and when the time does come for him to leave me, his memory will have impacted my life permanently and my love will go with him.
