These picture show MR. Tibbs (a male Blue purebred
Maine Coon Cat) looking royal, as he always does with that wonderful ruff of his. The
right top row shows him gracefully eating some cheese, and then sneaking up on
"his" (actually MY) dinner. After that there is the Small Animal Hospital in
Milwaukee (March 1998) where he goes for his 6 month 6,000 purr tune-up. We see the
outside, a D*G in the waiting area and then Dr. Diane G. Bennetts holding "her"
FAVORITE kitty as well as a picture of Dr. Bennetts and Dr. Geiken (co-owners of the
clinic) giving MR. Tibbs the royal petting he always gets when he goes there. After that
is MR. Tibbs showing off his computer prowess and reading CyberCat Chatter! And last are 3
photos showing him relaxing and taking a well deserved nap with The Beast on his 8th
Birthday (her 10th) on 8/1/98. And then 2 of him posing in his "Lion King" pose.

Here are some 2002 pictures of MR. Tibbs. He continues to do superbly on his
diet of Science Diet Sensitive Stomach, Wellness brand canned food and a
glucosamine supplement. He also is still receiving the 7.5mg 2/day of
Phenobarbital and the addition of 5mg of Prednisone every other day seems to
have the Irritable Bowel Syndrome in check and his weight is a whopping 8.75
pounds - the heaviest since 11/15/93 and just .85 pounds below his all time high
of 9.6 on 8/1/91.
Here are pictures from 2003. The first six from left to right from January
2003, the first snoozing with Nazerene on the bed and the last three from
September 29, 2003 where you can see he's just had a professional groomng from
Joy Keuhke of Joy's of Grooming in West Bend WI and also has put on a bit of
weight as a result of his new dry Purina One Hairball Control Food.
MR. Tibbs was helped to The Bridge peacefully at 4pm by Dr. Amy Speath &
Mindy at The Jackson Pet Hospital on 5/24/06 after a sudden illness about a
month earlier, I was with him at the time and it was very peaceful. He's now
resting pain free and in the sun as he always loved to be. I miss you Tibbs.
