Waiting…

ImagePageCA3I3V38 This morning my little buddy, Cougar, had a large red spot on his eye. It was dark, bloody red, and I thought I’d better watch it. I assumed he and his brother had tussled and he’d gotten scratched, but this didn’t look like a normal scratch. He was pretty lethargic, too, and didn’t want to eat this morning. I gave him a handful of treats and he ate those, but with much less gusto than normal.

I then returned my sister’s call. She had gone to the cemetery to see my parents…I was planning to go today. My stupid cell phone died mid call, rebooted itself twice, and then I was finally able to complete the call. So I also need to go to T-Mobile today, to get it replaced. After getting off the phone, I decided to take Cougar with me to the cemeteryu, as I thought the air and sun would be good for him and I could watch his eye. As I went to pick him up, I noticed that his eye was now COMPLETELY red with dark blood.

So now I’m here, at Pets Unlimited, waiting for the vet to return with news…

Man, I hope the little guy is okay.

Oh, and my broken cell phone is completely dead now…

I'll keep a good thought for Cougar. I hope it's nothing serious.

Thanks, man. I'm going to pick him up and take him home now. They sedated him to draw blood. Hopefully, we'll know what's going on in a day or two.

Awww! Craptastic. That's no good for the Cougar-man. We're thinkin' about him, for sure. Please let us all know when you do.

Thanks Charles and Synergy. Got my fingers crossed for the little guy. Now that he's ill, all the drama he's caused over the last couple years has been forgotten, and all the good times have come pouring back. Sigh.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
