Will Troy Get Lucky?

For those who are wondering, Troy is doing much better these days. After he was diagnosed with irritable cat bowel syndrome, they recommended giving him 5 mg of Pepcid (famotidine) with each meal. After months of fruitlessly trying to shove the pills in his mouth I began crushing it up in wet food to great effect. No sooner did I get my spoiled little guy back in top form shape (he turned 13 earlier this month, but you must admit he only looks about 10) did I see this poster in the cafeteria at work last night. His name is Lucky and his has run out -- his owner has become allergic to him (sound familiar?). Troy's never really been around other animals before (he saw a dog once and just stared at it in utter disbelief) so I'm hesitant to adopt a new cat. (Would it be fair to do to Troy in his golden years? At this point, I'm not so sure he wants any help destroying my leather sofa.) Still, something is telling me that I might not be able to resist Lucky's fluffy white fur and little pink nose.
