Meriwether says, "Meow!" He was a good boy a few days ago. He caught a mouse! It was too late to save it, but I thanked Meriwether and tossed it outside when he wasn't looking. His first mouse!

took a shelter cat to the vet to be spayed this morning. on my way home with the very groggy cat my cat dies! I was on a semi major road blocking traffic. 4 people stopped to help. 2 guys got the car pushed off the road to the shoulder and I started calling tow trucks in the area. all said no trucks avail. so I sat. a cop going the other way made a U-turn and pulled behind me with his lights flashing to give me some protection. I explained I had tried to find a tow truck, to no avail. he just smiled and said when the police call for a tow they suddenly have a truck available. sure enough 10 mins later a truck arrived. car went to repair shop of said tow truck and cop gave me and groggy cat a ride home. what a day!

my neighbor who was admitted Sat for major health issues was finally transferred to Emory hosp in Atlanta yesterday. they had to do a makeshift ICU in the ER until he got a bed. they have him stable now that over a liter of fluid was drained from the sack around his heart. he was one very sick man! hell, he still is.

I have a question about the article. If anyone knows, why can't the cats stay there also? They're just making a pedestrian path, so there should still be plenty of area for the cats?

FTA: The shelters, which protect the cats from the elements and predators, now stand in the way of an Americans With Disabilities Act-compliant ramp that the city will build to access the new 12-foot-wide path.

I read that, but aren't the shelters portable? Can't they be moved? Sorry for asking dumb questions, but I would hope they can find a compromise instead of having to move the cats to an unfamiliar area.

That's the main issue, finding a safe place to relocate the cats and shelters and they only have until Monday to do that.

Surgery tomorrow.  We had a test of the onesie yesterday .   Purrfect.   I have additional size 12M onesies to switch out if this one starts to stink.

All food comes up at bedtime.  No food for any of us in the morning until I get back from dropping him off.

I had to send a video of Tootsie coughing to my vet this morning   She prescribed prednisone and antibiotics.  It will be on my bill tomorrow.  Sigh.    Not sure if it is kennel cough or not but it probably is.  I was lax on his vaccine for it.  Bad mommy. On our walk we stayed away from our friends.   She didn't walk far either. Tootsie is nice and quiet now.  I had to crush his meds and put them in cat food for him to take them.
