We're Gonna Take A Couple More Days

My cat's back home, and appears to be feeling much better, but I'm going to keep an eye out for at least the next few days. There's still a pretty big hill to climb...Anyway, I think I'll be away for the week. Thanks as always to all of y'all who stop by -- quality over quantity, I always say.

Take it easy, see you next week.


  1. Michael,
    Words fail me. I have had long time cat friends die in my lap and have had to have some who were too sick or injured put down by a vet. One good old cat, Buster 2, got killed by some stray dogs when I lived in the woods near the community of Melder. Had a Glenmora address though. I found what was left of him, buried him then called the local cop shop. I asked the nice lady who answered the phone about stray dogs and did they need to be on a leash. She said they did. I told her what had happened, didn't want a cop to stop by, he was buried by then any way. I told her what would happen if I ever saw those dogs again. Didn't wait for her comment, just hung up.
    We do get very attached to our furry friends. I really like that non-Photoshop photo of Mr. Tigger. Wishing him and you the very, very best.
    Yes, do take some time away from the blog. You both need some extra quality time. I'll check back now and then, probably with another comment or three. Take care of yourself as well as Tigger.

    1. I'm sorry to hear about the diagnosis but am heartened to hear your cat is feeling better. Take care.

  3. Well, thanks for the warm wishes and good thoughts. The little guy's had lots of lap time over the past couple of days, and is doing ok under the circumstances. He's eating, which I take to be a good sign, he's doing everything he can to avoid taking his medicine, which I also consider good, i.e., he's active enough to dislike the stuff.

    Next week he gets another chemo treatment, and it'll be once a week until we see some sign, one way or the other. In the meantime, well, he was a bit spoiled -- what else am I going to do? -- and that won't change. Might even get more spoiled.

    And it's possible that, with some luck, he'll be around for a while. They told me the tumor is small, so perhaps they got it early. If he responds to the chemotherapy, that could give us anywhere from six months to a couple of years. I'll take it, provided he's not suffering otherwise.

    Again, thanks. See you next week.
