After I closed the door to the washroom, I started to assess what had happened. I looked at my leather jacket. I noticed one tear on the front. :? I was afraid to look anymore. I put the jackect on the chair.
My attention went back on the kitten. It MUST be hungry! I got two little bowls I use for serving sauce. Water in one.... food in the other. I know my cats are wondering what the heck is going on. I could NOT let my cats see the kitten. Anyone who knows cats, knows when cats meet a stange cat, all he LL breaks loose. Ok.... the cats are on the other side of the room.... time to deliver the food and water. I slowly opened the door to the bathroom... popped my head in. I see no cat.... its hiding! GOOD! I put the 2 bowls down in the small dark room and close the door. Mission accomplished. Well.... sort of...
Cats need to use litter boxes. If they dont BAD things can happen. :roll:
The kitten is in the washroom.... with the litterbox. My two cats cant go in there. What am I to do? This isnt going to work. Kitten cant stay. :( I dont know if it has diseases..... it hasnt been de clawed in the front like my cats are. So kiss my leather couch good bye! :?
Its now about 2AM. I call the 24/7 animal hospital. The only one in 15 miles. After the woman stops laughing at my perils, she informs me of 3 things. The first is since the kitten sliced my hand and drew a little blood I need to goto the ER and get it checked out.
The second is I should call the Police to see if they can pick the cat up.
The third is I much change the litter box AND wipe it and the floor down with BLEACH! It seems cat disease is very easily transmitted.
I thank her hang up, and put my forehead on my gelpad for my keyboard. Im REALLY tired and this nite is far from over.
Well I need to put my glasses on and....... WAIT! My glasses!!!!
The cat knocked the off! Where are they? I cant drive without my glasses at nite! Awwwww CRAP! I put my jacket on and whip down the stairs. Open the doors to the outside, praying that I will see my 2 other eyes somewhere. Im squinting... the light is really low.... I return to the scene where this whole mess started.... no more police cars..... no more glasses. Theyre GONE!
Someone had to take them! I looked for 15 minutes.... nothing.
My mind quickly goes back to the 2 cats that cant go and relive themselves. ARGH. I go back up, taking the elevator this time. I have to get my cat carrier. Its in storage.... Looking at my keychain Im thankful to find the key to the lock of my storage area. I pop in open the lock to the cage.... push everything aside thats in my way. Is it here??? YES! I rip it out of the cage and lock everything back up.
Back into the apartment, its about 2:30AM.
I decide Im not going to the ER for this tiny cut on my hand. But, this cat HAS to goto the police tonight! I quickly shuffle my 2 cats in the bedroom and close the door. Now I can get the kitten in the carrier. :roll: I open the door to the bathroom slowly. Its dark and it SMELLS! :x The kitten did his 'business'. yuk. He looks somewhat relaxed and he isnt making any noise. I get a better look at him and he gets a good look at me too.
What a good looking cat! All black with these huge copper colored eyes!
This made me feel much better about what I did! I open the door to the carrier and he hops right in.
Im shocked at how easy that was. I close the carrier door and the kitten starts talking to me. Its getting scared again. Meow.... Meow! Well here we go! I open the door to the hallway. Its amazing how such a small cute thing can make such a loud annoying noise. :? We go downstairs and whip out into the very dark and very cold night. I can only imagine what this cat is seeing and feeling. Scared to death about why its back out in the cold.
I put him in the back seat. His voice sound very tired and very dry. Like he has been meowing and crying for a very long time. I start the engine and make sure the heat is turned all the way up. I put the car in reverse look at the instument cluster.... what did I see??? A yellow light. What the light for? The light that is laughing at me? Im almost out of gas! WHY NOW??!!! Great.... now I have to get gas with the kittin in the back. Im so darn tired. :( Not to mention its about 3AM.... New Years Day. Where is there a station open? Will I run out of fuel before I get there?
