I wasn’t going to post about this because, well, I feel kinda guilty & stupid about it. But then I saw an ignorance-fighting opportunity.
See, I have this indoor/outdoor kitty. I’ve had strictly indoor cats before and for all their efforts of trying to get out I figure they’re not in fact happier (although much safer, but there is little connection between happy & safe). So this Spring we greened up the back yard, grew a garden & some tall weeds–lovely playground for a kitty.
Last night I notice she’s behaving sickly–moving slowly, but not prowling; lethargic, but not in the same way as a normal cat… Dropped her off at the vet this morning & have just been informed of severe kidney failure as the likely cause of her loss of spunk. Vet’s best suggestion based on the info he has is antifreeze. So based on the severity of her condition I had to buy her a blue velvet seat on the gravy train–I’ll be picking up my new catcicle on Tuesday (can’t get to the vet before then).
Now, I know better than to dump antifreeze into the gutter. And none of my cars is leaking the yummy poison. Perhaps I should go walkies about the 'hood tonight and see if I can locate a pretty green puddle in front of someone’s house…and leave them a stiff little Russian Blue present.
Sure, my fault for letting her out–so pit me for it, but you’d better wait a month or two. I’m too emotional right now to give a damn.
