A Sick Bug

I'm pet sitting and one of the cats is sick. Really sick. I don't know if she's going to make it until they get back. Today's been long days of vet visits and subcutaneous fluids and none of it seems to have done much good.

This is further complicated by the fact that my clients are my ex-family, and this cat was basically MY cat for years. In the split up I took Princess Mononoke and James Bond stayed. But she still jumps into my lap every time I come over and reminds me that the spot for best scritches is right along the side of her face. 

So I'm not wording gud today.

And I might not be tomorrow.

Likely it will be Thursday before I'm no longer swinging and missing. That'll mess up my entire schedule, but I'll do what I can to start getting SOMETHING up before too long.


  1. Sorry, Chris. Pets, they are family, but almost more than that, because they are so vulnerable and dependent on us, and they completely ignore all family/ex-family politics and drama, and love everyone the same no matter what happens. Hope she gets better.

  2. I’m so sorry. :( We lost both our old ladies last year so I know how hard losing a pet is, let alone without all that added stuff involved.

  3. I'm so sorry. I really hope she rallies during the night. Having sick pets is so heartbreaking.

  4. Wow. Heavy. Don't worry about wording. It's a cat. Make kissy noises & meow badly, they still get you. See you after the storm.

  5. I'm sorry, Chris. Pets are family, just like our chosen family among our human friends. I hope this pretty lady makes it back to health quickly.

  6. Hope she recovers. Don't worry about posting....the CAT is the most important thing right now. Love
