I'm Cat Scan, and this is my Web page (Daddy helped me a lot with it -- I'm a grown-up cat now (I'm 10 years old today!) but I'm still not very good at typing. My Aunt Marlita thought I was a Russian Blue kitten, but I'm more gray than blue (with a couple of white spots on my tummy) which mean I can hide on Daddy's rugs -- and on Grandma and Granddad's rugs when I visit them. Daddy thinks I'm actually a Korat (I don't know why Daddy would call me any kind of a rat...)

My brother Sniff used to live with us, but he went off to kitty heaven 2 years ago. He looked just like me, except he was a little bigger than me. (Daddy says there are other differences, too, but he also says I'm too little to hear about things like that. I wish he'd stop treating us like teenagers.) I had the house all to myself for a while, and then Mommy and Daddy brought home three kittens. They were supposed to be brothers (2 of them) and a sister, but they all look different. And they're always running all over the place -- especially at breakfast and dinner. It's almost impossible to have them sit still... (I miss you, Sniff... (sniff... sniff...)

Daddy let me and Sniff help him write some of his medical pages, and he says the kittens will get to help too. (I don't know how they'll be able to write --- for one thing, they're not nearly as eloquent as me and Sniff. Besides, they spend too much time running around to be able to make great authors.) Our first one was about cat scratch disease -- and we made sure that Daddy told everybody that cat scratch disease isn't OUR fault -- after all, Sniff and I don't scratch anyone who treats us properly (especially Daddy and Mommy and Grandma and Granddad). (However, the kittens have to simmer down before they can help Daddy write.) We also helped Daddy write his page about CT scanning -- I think they call those machines CAT scanners after me, but Daddy doesn't agree. (If you want to find all the other pages we helped with, go to the search box -- I put my name in the box already so it's easier for you to find my paws.)

This is the first picture Daddy took of me when I came to live with him.

And this is another picture of Sniff and me on Daddy's bed (I'm the cute one on the left). Daddy thinks we look like sphinxes (isn't that a kind of cat?)

And this is Sniff and me looking at the snow in Grandma's and Granddad's backyard.

A Poem for Cat Scan

(My mommy wrote this for me!)

Twister Sister - Princess Love
   Whirling, twirling, swirling
           Shooting up the steps.
              Down the steps she goes
	          Jumping, playing.
                   Tree lights

We welcome your comments and questions.

PLEASE NOTE: As with all of this Web site, Daddy tries to give general answers to common questions his patients and their parents ask in his (real) office. If you have specific questions about your child you must ask your child's regular doctor. No doctor can give completely accurate advice about a particular child without knowing and examining that child. Daddy will be happy to try and answer general questions about children's health, but unless your child is a regular patient of his he cannot give you specific advice. (And Sniff and I don't let him try to give advice on cat health.)
