This is the last picture of Ipoh, taken as she relaxed in April.
You can see how her ear appeared after a year.
The ear infection and subsequent visits to the doctor really affected her. She didn't hunt as much, went outside a lot less and really made an effort not to have her picture taken. She would close her eyes or hide her face when the camera came out. Also, she didn't play on the internet or update her webpages.
Other changes after the surgery included sleeping more, enjoying being stroked and combed more and generally being more affectionate.
She was a very happy and spoiled kitty.
Ipoh disappeared the morning of July 4th. She left in the middle of the night to do her nocturnal activities and didn't return. This was very unusual because she really enjoyed waking the Big guy in the early hours then sleeping through the rest of the morning. Signs were posted in the neighborhood and she has an ID chip but there has been no news.
The Big guy is terribly upset: He visits the animal shelter almost daily.
