There is a Flickr group contest for the best sleeping cat picture. As of now, Jerry is in the second place. Voting is open until May 19. Please go vote for Jerry!
I know, I know. I should be posting about my new baby Yuuma! Her birth story will be posted in a month or so…
Yes, you read about it here first, folks. Yummy or Crummy will be adding another blog post here sometime in the very near future. Do hold your breath, and don’t sit back and relax, because before you know it my new blog post will kick you in the teeth and throw you down like your daddy never could, no matter how much he drank.
Our big cat Jerry recently got in a cat fight (we think). Two days later we noticed a golf-ball size swelling on his neck. We were kind of worried, but he was acting normal — eating, walking around, whining when he’s hungry and sleeping as usual. The swelling didn’t subside for two more days, so we decided to take him to the vet after all. That was this morning. I thought it would be no big deal — they’d stick a needle or something in there and drain the pus out. Boy, I was wrong!
“His temperature is 105. We need to put him under and drain the abscess right away.”
Um, what? I felt like a really bad parent, letting him suffer for a few days with a high fever….
Anyway, they performed the draning procedure pretty fast, and he was home in the afternoon.
Be careful if you click on the photo above. I also uploaded a close-up shot of his wound. It’s pretty gross.
Understandably, Jerry hasn’t been in the best mood since he got home. But he’s being sweet enough to come up and rub on me, etc. And he wants to go outside! What a trooper this guys is. Sorry, Jerr — no outdoor adventures for you for at least a few days.
