Turtle and Julius 2
Julie and Turtle have been doing something different of late, maybe the last year.
If they are in sight of my chair and I am getting up they will wait for me to make it to them and then they walk along side me til I make it to my destination.  It is so sweet.  Julie will walk along side of me, he is on the bed and I am walking on the floor and he follows me til I get to their steps and he joins me on the floor.  My cats are the best.  Turtle as old as she is still is obstinate.  She knows there are certain places she is not allowed so she waits till I am out of sight or asleep and then she goes to the forbidden places.  I punish her until the next time when she undoubtedly do it again.  She is very frustrating.  Julie doesn't like to be punished so he learns the first time.  He is not sneaky like Turtle.  Obviously she learns or she wouldn't have to be sneaky, she just wouldn't do it.  I don't have patience with her since I know she knows better.   Despite what everyone says cats can be taught what not to do.  Both my cats have been taught by a previous cat of mine to use certain pieces of carpet to claw, they are not allowed to use the furniture.  Julie knows several words.   BIRDS, POTTY, OUTSIDE, GO OUTSIDE AND LOOK OUTSIDE, TAKE A NAP, WHATS THAT, give me a kiss and TURTLE.   He also talks but I don't understand him, tee hee.  He's very smart.  They both know their names.
Turtle and Julius 1

 There is Julius, he is 17 years old and my baby and his mother Turtle, she is 18 and has diabetes.  I have never been able to afford to treat her and she is in her last stages I think.  When she cleans herself her hair becomes balled up and sticky and her spit is thick.  I wonder why they can't do diabetic tests on the spit rather from the blood for people?  She hangs in and goes through stages of eating good and not eating good.  She drinks so much water that the litter turns to cement and is awful to clean.  I haven't found an answer yet.

I have a 15? year old Cockatiel, he is untamed but likes me.  I got him as a baby but he has always been skittish.  He had a brother that died a few years ago so he is alone and has a radio to entertain him as I try not to go back there unless to check on his feed, etc as it is a mess and low on my list for cleaning.
