Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to say thank you (duh) to everyone in this group for being
such a big help.  By reading this news group, I've learned so much about
my kitties, especially when to worry about their health and when not
to.  This is what I'm talking about:

Last night, around 11:00, I noticed that my 6 mos.old, Abby, had a piece
of my hair*** out of her bum.  Alarm bells went off in my head
because I remembered seeing the thread about the cat with the string in
his bum.  Right away I knew *not* to pull at the hair.  I went on the
net, searched deja for the thread, and found all the messages that said
it was an emergency situation.  I took her to the vet, and after a
rectal exam (yuck) I was told she was fine, and by this morning, the
hair had been pooped out.

So, I just wanted to tell everyone how wonderful this ng is and even
though I'm usually just a lurker (except when I have a question of my
own), I really appreciate all the advise that you give.  The fact that
last night was a false alarm is irrelevant, the point is that I knew it
could have been life threatening, and I knew what to do.

Thanks again, purrs and head butts to all,

Heather
