blue point siamese
Being a responsible cat parent, you know spaying has to be done. But risk of anesthesia is always present. Words pound in your brain, “Everyday across the world hundreds of pets are being altered.”
The troubling part is, you have a special connection to your furry little family member, it becomes a personal thing. As with Lily, I tried to keep busy. Ready to drop whatever I was doing to go get her asap. You want to rescue them from the scary place of unknown smells and sounds. And let them know you haven’t abandoned them.
Injection for pain
They gave her an injection of Buprenorphine-SR, a slow-release medication for pain. It lasts for 3 days, and it could disorient her during the duration. A few times when sitting she fell over, sad to see her listless.
You’d think that an animal with the scientific name of “Felis catus”, might just have killer instincts.
Years ago, presented with an embarrassing statement of proclaiming… “No self-respecting mouse would dare enter my house with 5 cats.” A few days later, a mouse scurried across my living room floor.
Devastated that at least one of the five wasn’t in hot pursuit. Nope. They ignored the intruder. Cat dialogue; “He’s been here a while. Besides, he doesn’t eat much.”
My first cat was a fierce hunter. Taking down birds, mice, gophers, and even a pet rat that escaped. It was white, so I’m sure it once was a pet.
Don’t know how many times in the past month, I have said, “What are you doing?” or “What have you done?”
Lucy Blue Point Siamese
After 3 months, Lucy must have figured out she can do no wrong. Thought we got past the ‘in trouble behavior’. As in, leave this alone or quit scratching on the furniture.
No end to what this little one can destroy. I should have kept a box for destroyed toys, just to recall the day I found them laying there on the floor in pieces. I cut several tails off mice toys as she has become obsessed with chewing on them. Don’t need her ingesting material.
Lily turned a year old on March 1, 2021. She arrived at our house 3 months ago. How quickly the time flies.
Hard to believe we went 7 months without a cat to grace our home. Now we have 2 wild fun loving cats.
The flying squirrel, aka Lily, has been pushing her limits with us.
She wanted to get on top of the 6-foot shelf in the office. Many attempts, with a firm ‘NO’ have gone on deaf ears. She has big ones, so I know she can hear.
Persistence finally landed her on top. Bolted up with a flash before I could abort the leap.
Back and forth she went as I tried to grab her. Hoped the scare of being dragged off the top might discourage future jumps. NOPE… not in the least.
We had been fighting this crazy adventure of hers for weeks. I guess she decided the day arrived to conquer the unknown.
