“Traumatized” Cat

We woke up this morning and discovered Winston was locked in our tiny front porch all night.

From Cats

He wasn’t scratching to get out and seemed totally cool about it. We felt bad, anyway, and gave him some treats, and then he ran to the litter box. Five minutes later he curled up and went to sleep on a chair.

How often does your cat puke?

My cat, Nigel, has been on a barfcapade. He used to puke up a hairball about once a month and it was no big deal, but every day for the past couple weeks he’s been spewing up everything all over the place. Today he puked on the couch, god love ’em.

I’m not sure if our second cat, Winston, has ever puked, god love ’em.

Ode To Fred

fred and jahI’m taking our 14 year old cat (the black and white one) to the veterinarian in about an hour to be euthanized. She never was a friendly cat, but she’s become worse the past year: swiping at our other cat and anyone who gets to close to her; not using the litter box regularly; isolating herself from everything. She still has that growth on her leg, but it hasn’t gotten worse. We took her to the vet a few months ago about her behavior and they agreed – her behavior is probably due to age and who knows what’s growing in her.

Fred was never tolerant to people; not your ideal cat; however, she was our pet for 14 years. She’s more my wife’s pet than mine, but still, it’s hard.
