    We adopted Milo & Molly (his sister, and the only two non-walk-ons we have) after Smudgy & Garf died. Smudgy was the 3-yr-old that I mentioned in the previous post. 18 lbs of lap cat wannabe. Garf (Smudgy's brother) died a year later while we were on vacation...our cat sitter found him. They were the two "snuggly" cats, and I missed them so badly that we went & found Milo & Molly. Milo has slept on my pillow for six years now. He purrs me to sleep.

    I remember when the vixen and I had to say goodbye to Jinx (our cat of 17 years). Jinx was the cat that turned me into a cat person.

    Of course I had to take her to the vet......(someone else couldn't bring herself to do it) and we went into the room, and the vet's assistant asked if I wanted to stay while she administered the drug. I decided that was a little more than I could take. On my way out, I looked back, and Jinx was giving me a look like "Where are going, Daddy? Why aren't you taking me with you?"

    Needless to say, that was a long night (and several more, to be honest) for both of us.

    And I thought we had unique names for our cats (all outdoors) as we were growing up: Blackie, Whitey, Salt, Pepper, Butter, Mama Kitty. I guess we did have Maybelle early on.

    In our married life, Lew and I have had a number of cats pass through. From the first one forward: Fritz, Jezebel & her son Shere Khan (Khannie) were mine when we met, Ghost was his; Ashley passed through while the boys were still at home but we found another home for her. After we moved to our acreage, these were walkons or born here (other than M&M): Mellow Yellow (Mel), siblings Cricket, Smudgy & Garf, siblings Milo & Molly, and mother/son duo Button & Tab. The only ones we didn't name are Milo & Molly. They were about 8 months old by the time we adopted them, and it seemed best to leave their names intact. We did have to get permission from one of our granddaughters - we wanted to be sure she would not be offended if Grandma & PapaLew had a cat with her name. :D
    Mel (15), Cricket (10), Milo & Molly (6), Button (4) & Tab (3) are the current indoor sextet.

    In case you couldn't tell...I rarely go with "common" names. :D

    Out of my second food staple, milk. Ran out of first, bananas, a couple of weeks ago.

    Good news is this came from Amazon today and one of the ingredients is milk so I'm good.

    Those caramel ones are the bomb.

    Also how do you pronounce it? Care-a-melle, Car-muhl, Care-muhl, or care-a-muhl? Any others I'm mussing?

    Carmuhl born and raised in Chicago fwiw. Not claiming to be the only Chicago dialect though.

    I say caramel. Not Chicago born or raised. Not bred or conceived there to my knowledge either.

    I'm a Winnebago County born and raised. We generally do it right so that should settle it.

    I feel like south side is more like the da bears da bulls snl skit than other places in the city. But I've mostly lost my south side accent since I've been gone for 15 years.

    Welp, Milo is still not producing enough urine so they have not been able to get a sample yet. The vet referred to dehydration, still doesn't think it's kidneys. Poor Milo has to stay there overnight. My pillow is going to be very empty tonight. :(
