We have an ear sucker.

That is a kitten that will nurse on your earlobes.

Bud is the culprit, again, along with being the independent loner and the one who likes to piddle under the computer desk instead of in the more socially acceptable places.

Forrest is eating a bit more, and I am very glad. We are still tormenting her with fluids and trying to aspirate the crud out of her nose and I'm not giving up, not on any of them. The others have joined her in a chorus of sneezing, sniffling, and snoring, so it is probably only a matter of time before I face decline in appetite from them.

What surprises me is that none of my adult cats have gotten this. Then again, they are big enough (some of them way more than big enough, that Hope is a sausage on legs) to survive a few days of no appetite.

If you happen to be out and about tonight, admire the Full Crow Moon (my favorite of this month's names for the moon).
