We shoulda called him Spot

The cat left something absolutely dees-gusting in the middle of the bed this afternoon. Uncle B thought it was something that had been through the cat, which called for an emergency vet visit. Which we were lucky enough to get.

Turns out, it was probably the remains of a victim (possibly after being lightly processed) and he’s fine. He needed worming anyway.

The duvet went straight into the trash, though.

He yelled at us the whole way there, was deathly quiet at the vet’s, then yelled at us all the way home. But since we’ve been back, he’s doing the oddest thing. He’s following me around, looking me straight in the face and meowing like he’s trying to tell me something.

It’s not food. It’s not outside (the door is open). He’s not mad. He’s been very friendly, in fact. It’s like he’s trying earnestly to tell me something about what happened to him today.

Oh, and the doctor said were aren’t to feed him any more. Ever. For as long as he lives. He’s just that fat.

Have a good weekend!

Aww, poor kitty…he’s not fat, he’s comfortable. He wanted you to appreciate him for the present he left for you on your bed, that’s what it is 🙂

Have a nice weekend!

I do miss soft little cat paws patting my face, trying to tell me something.

He’s got the got the greatest cat style hunting story to tell, and no one will ever believe it without the duvet. He’s pissed.

Deborah, how do you teach them to pat softly?? Mine slaps my face with her big ol’ booger hooks like she’s trying to enucleate me (new word I dun lernt).

@Teej—I don’t think you can teach them to sweetly pat (professionals yes, but not for the rest of us). I think it’s just the cat. But all I ever had was the one cat.
And I think Pupster is probably right.
