Sniff (or Smith)
We are very sorry to have to announce that Sniff passed away in his sleep
last night. We are not sure yet what happened to him. His sister
Cat Scan is very upset
but otherwise OK.
We will keep Sniff's page running in memory of the King of Cats.
I'm Sniff (I think -- my old mommy called me Smith, and Grandma calls me
Smitty, and Granddad sometimes calls me Snaps, and I know Daddy can't hear
well because he doesn't hear us half the time when we ask him to give us
treats), and this is my Web page. (My sister
Cat Scan told
me I should have a Web page just like she does, and she told Daddy to
help me with it -- I haven't learned to type too well yet, either.)
Daddy lets me and
Cat Scan help him write lots of his medical pages! The first one
we helped him with was all about
disease. And we made sure that Daddy told everybody that cat scratch
disease isn't OUR fault -- after all, Cat Scan and I don't scratch anyone
who treats us properly (especially Daddy and Mommy and Grandma and Granddad).
(Don't tell Daddy, but Cat Scan and I have been putting our paws into some
of Daddy's other pages, too. If you want to find them, go to the
search box at the bottom of this page --
I already put my name in the box for everyone to use.)
This is the second picture Daddy took of me when I came to live with him.
(We didn't like the first picture very much -- my eyes weren't all the way
open, and I hate flash pictures...)
And this is me and Cat Scan on Daddy's bed. (Daddy's disturbing us again.)
And this is me at the top of Daddy's stairs. (It's just like
Cat Scan's first picture).
And this is a picture of Cat Scan and me looking at the snow in Daddy's
backyard. (Daddy says this is one of his favourite pictures of us.)
And this is me on Daddy's bed pretending to be sleeping.
And this is me reading Daddy's
Economist with my
Cat Sip. (Daddy wants me to be a well-informed cat...)
Ode to Sniff
(My mommy wrote this just for me!)
- Wide, yearning, pleading eyes
- Full of expression
- Full of thought and passion.
- Loving, gentle,
- Pulling me in and rejecting me.
- Caring and sweet,
- Twisting us about your will.
- Catering to your whim,
- Breaking our hearts,
- Then filling them with joy.
- So simple
- And yet so complicated.
- You are the sun rays
- That warm you as you lie by the windows.
- You are energy and sloth,
- Love and anger,
- Contentment and agitation.
- You demand and toy,
- Gaining your way throughout the day.
- As you lick your sister
- Or jump upon my lap
- You are the king of cats - at least within your castle.

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
about children's health, but unless your child is a regular patient of
his he cannot give you specific advice. (And Cat Scan and I don't let him
try to give advice on cat health.)
