OUR SICK CAT MADE ME A BIT LATE Part 1
I'd like to let my viewers know why I missed some posts with larger gaps between them. Last night we couldn't find our grey tabby with white paws, aptly named Mittens by my daughter. After five hours of looking for him and him not showing for dinner or treats, we found him lying in the cat box. He looked happy and alert, but wouldn't come out by himself. We lifted him out gave him a cuddle and put him down. He raced off and hid in another remote place. It turns out he had tear in his abdominal wall, like a huge hernia, with his intestines and other organs pushing through it. Nothing showed on the outside. We think our animals are part of the family, so we had his problem corrected surgically. As of this afternoon, the doctor says he has the best possible outcome. We are very happy. He is one of the sweetest cats ever. Sometimes life happens.
