Bentley update

My cat of 17 years, Bentley, used to be 22 lbs. In fact we nicknamed him "Fat Bastard." He's now 11 lbs. and has gotten the new nickname of "Starvin' Marvin." It turns out Bentley's hyperthyroid. That's right, hyperthyroid's not just for people anymore. So he's now on thyroid medication. This should help him to put weight back on by Christmas. Otherwise he's in good health, and that's a good thing. Funny how our "pets" really become our "friends."
