both mo and jean want us to keep him...i don't think that is an option...but he sure likes his new room with it's prettily padded floor (thx jean and caroline)..mo is bringing him a wardrobe box tomorrow to make him a safe place to go inside and under which he likes to do....i just spent an hour with him watching him kill a little brown dog, 2 turtles and a cow. every once in awhile he would suddenly leap into the air and several times came really close to grabbing that fly. he can't walk worth a crap, but he can chase fly's...go figure. what a happy little cat...constantly up for a cuddle or a game (or a snack)...amazing that he can suffer that kind of profound and devastating damage and pick himself up and not only keep going but have fun while he does it too. rachel told me she was feeling some pressure from her co-oworkers to consider his quality of life and maybe think about euth. she was interested in my opinion on this after getting a chance to observe him for a few days... lol...there is NOTHING wrong with his quality of life, he is happy and joyful, he is adventuresome and interactive, he is interested and he is expanding his horizons...nothing wrong with that kind of life even if it is all experienced and participated in with a lot more challenge than most other cats. freddy is quite the guy.
