The crew

Jack and Ollie having a meeting.. should I be worried?
I often refer to this as "dead kitty syndrome" when all of my cats lay around looking like an explosion of kitties just occurred.  I'm sure all kitties do this, but when you have three or more doing it in one room at one time, it is a little disconcerting.  The hotter it gets, the higher the incidence of DKS and the less likely they are to come out of it when I walk through the room.  I know it sounds morbid, but I figure if a dog can play dead, then I can joke about this..

I'm not sure why my cats play DK, as they have access to the basement which is always MUCH cooler then the rest of the house..

Ollie is still doing ok.  His weight is holding steady, but I think one of the lumps is getting bigger.  He's also starting to tell me that the two hours we do his treatment each morning is a little too long for him.  He will willingly show up for the first hour of his treatment, but after that he walks down slower and slower, if at all.  Sometimes DH will carry him down for me if he is home.  Today he disappeared and I have always said this is about his *quality* of life.  I am not going to force this on him - because he will be miserable and grumpy and that is no way for him to end his life, nor is it any way for the other cats to live with him. He's started getting grumpy again in the AM - smacking the other cats for getting in his way or breathing the wrong way (or what ever other "rule" they have broken anywhere near him).  But this weekend I did get a nice sweet surprise.  He climbed into the bed and gave my cheek a little lick.  I can't remember the last time he licked me out of love... heck I can't remember the last time he licked me.
