Our daughter's Cat 1 (she has two cats now) likes to ride in the car. She would lay on the rear deck and stare out the back window while Loverly drove along. Not sure if kitties go for rides anymore since our daughter has my van since her car died in January...

My cats are 1 year and 4 months old, we believe. They came from the animal shelter in June of last year. They were small kittens then.

Azia was three years old when I got her at the same time of the cats. She had no name and was dumped to there. The vet thinks she was three years old when she was first examined. Azia was to be put away the very next day so I took her.

If you have problems being away from Shreddy, I could loan you my cats. They will make you to appreciate Shreddy more than you will know!

Before I do loan you these, I will need from you to sign a waiver contract. I shall not be responsible for any of hospital bills of trauma and of stitches and of organ failure.

With love,
~Cat

We had a cat years ago, he belonged to everyone in the family and it was hard to keep him out of the car. We lived, at the time, on the other side of Denver from Mom. I was stuck in rush hour traffic on the 4 lane when Gopher jumper over the seat to sit up front. I stopped at the store on the way home and bought, food etc. called Mom and told her I had him and we could swap him in a week. Mom and Dad got a vacation from him and he got a vacation...we had fun for a week.

It was only 10 miles to return him, if traffic was good I could do it in two hours. If it was bad...who knows how long it would take.

Stirling had a good idea before we brought Shreddy to the vet. He suggested that we cover the cat carrier (while it was in the car and at the vet) with a blanket, so Shreddy wouldn't be able to see out and it would be a bit dark. It worked! He wasn't nearly so vocal about his upset about the car ride as he usually is. There were actual periods of silence.

Poor Beagle has been sick all weekend, and still won't eat today. She's sleeping a lot. In an apparent attempt to self-medicate, she ate some Indian corn husks from decorative corn I had in a basket, and was horking them up. I threw them away.

DH took her to the vet this morn, and they couldn't find anything wrong. Not like her at all, she just loves her kibble. She did spot a bunny and tried to give chase when I took her out.

Aww, poor Beagle. I hope she feels better soon.

Oh no! This is bad news! I am sorry, Dawgluver. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

Horking? That sounds like something a prostitute does on street corners. Does this mean to throw up?

With love,
~Cat

Horking. Is that what they call it these days. I'll have to remember this the next time my oldest goes exploring in the neigbhorhood or when the boy cats come yowling around the back door to see her. Luckily she's had her tubes tied or whatever is done. I won't be a grampa anytime soon and she has no time for interlopers in "her" yard. Yet she thinks it's perfectly ok to go visit in their yards.

Thanks guys. Took Beagle on her walk, got back, and she's still not hungry. Vet did give her an anti-hork (throw-up) shot, and so far it's working.

I got a call from the vet tech. Shreddy has had his shot of I-131 and is adjusting well to being at the animal hospital. He's eating well and has used the litter box and is playing with toys that sat in catnip. I already miss him. I'm trying to send him happy, loving thoughts.
