Quantcast

Gyngyn and LizzyM clearly need to change their profile pictures

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.

I just posted this elsewhere but it bears repeating in my case

With all the other adcoms having pictures of their felines, I was fighting the defacto requirement to do so. But apparently resistance is futile. Actually, I felt the strong need to share Braveheart's picture, my wild cat of 14 years, as onlate Friday afternoon a very large abdominal mass was found. While an ultrasound and cytology is not done yet, the chances that it is something other than a large malignant tumor are slim. Hence I thought I would share his countenance with the forum.

I am so sorry. I love my cats, and my 15 year old one is also starting to have issues.

I guess they did miss the memo! And I always thought gyngyn's pic was puffed smoke, until I actually clicked on it and saw that it was some type of vegetable or something! I always have to remind myself it's not smoke now lol.

I've had 4 avitars over the years and the point was, at first, that I wanted to look older so that pre-meds would realize I wasn't a 20 year old pre-med myself. Now I think that James Bond's M is the purrr-fect avatar for me.

Much better than the white Persian that always sat in Blofeld's lap!

So I don't get. Do all physicians and faculty members on SDN automatically have cats? Are any of you dog people? I for one can't stand cats and their retractable nails/knives.

You can like cats and dogs, you know.

I somehow feel cats are more appropriate anyway

I love all animals ... and grew up with 3 dogs, 3 cats, and a horse - although I'm partial to felines. Does that make you feel better?

Actually I never really liked cats. I grew up with dogs, labs mostly. Just had some wild cats in my neighborhood and this one showed up on a cold rainy march day crying so I gave him a can sardines. Next thing I knew I was buying 50 pound bags of cat food. He eventually took over my Florida room (enclosed porch) which my wife calls his condo. Even had the contractor put in both a cat door and .... wait for it... a staircase for him to use. My wife claims she never liked the cat, but she keeps buying cat beds, houses, etc.

I am, of course, a proponent of an hypoallergenic home environment, unless if you're born into one with cats, at least that is what the latest studies seem to propose

I equated you with Coach Sue for the longest time. :D

I like cats but I'm very allergic. I like cuddling with my friends' cats after I pop a claritin. Love dogs though! Get to see mine in a week :)

I think your cat should have the entire condo, and not merely an enclosed porch. After all, cats rule!
