Mancat Monday ~ Bandit and Malachi

Start by doing what's necessary;
then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

-St. Francis of Assisi-
Hai, Bandit here....Some good news for me!
We got some new medicine last Friday and I have not had diarrhea for two days!! This is almost a miracle for us, as I've had it for so, so long. I had pills for three days, and we started a liquid today for three days. Many of you have asked about me, so we thought you would be happy for us, too! Just hope it continues (and Momma really hopes so!) Mom Bobbie here. We may have celebrated too soon, as it came back this afternoon *sigh*

As you know, this is my new brofur, Malachi, who the neighbor started feeding when he went to her house this fall. Since there is a cat over there that did not like him, he visited us. Now he has been tutored (he misunderstood all of that, see below!) and he lives inside with us.
Momma said 'Another mouth to feed'..we said 'It is OK, we will manage'.

I came from a house close by. Momma catnapped me in 1994 when I was walking in the middle of the road. There are a lot of cow cats there, and we think Malachi lived there, too. Many years separate us, but we think we're probably cousins. What do you think?

~ Bandit


  1. We think you could be long lost relatives fur sure! And Bandit, we're glad that medicine is working for you! Let's hope it continues!

  2. We're glad you're doing better, Bandit. And it looks like you have a new friend in Malachi.

  3. Bandit we are thrilled to hear that the new meds are working for your tummy troubles!
    It is so nice to meet you, Malachi. You are one handsome Mancat!

  4. yay Bandit!!!! we are happy that your tummy prollems are better today!!!

    Celebrate the times it is not there, no matter the length!

    Malachi, you sure fit in with the rest of the gang!

  8. For sure, I think you could be related!

    The liquid is a different medicine from the pills? Or are they two different things? It sounds like the pills were doing some good - we sure hope you get that figured out and get rid of that diarrhea stuff for good!

  9. Sorry the medicine isn't completly working, you do look like cousins.

  10. Be patient sweet Bandit, that diarrhea can be a swine to get rid of - maybe as the pills worked for a while they will work again? We sure hope so, we know allllllll about how depressing this can be as it took us a year to get Angel stabilised. We think you and Malachi could well be relatives since you both came from the same place. That's a very sweet picture of you together there.
