Puppies: Cute. Crying Cats in Carriers: Avoid Eye Contact.

I should have results from most of Buddy’s tests today. He has lost weight, he’s jaundiced on top of everything else, so, not good. But maybe treatable, so I’m going to try to wait to hear before panicking. He doesn’t seem to be in pain. At all. And he’s eating.

I was listening to Bing Crosby sing “It’s Been a Long, Long Time,” yesterday. Although I read that apparently he wasn’t the nicest guy in the world, I find his singing voice enormously comforting. You’d think this was a tender guy, who sang his children to sleep, but I don’t think he was that guy. (Or so I’ve read.) Still, I want to buy more Bing Crosby all of a sudden.

On the way to the vet. Everyone stops for the cute puppy, and ignores the cat in the carrier.

  1. I always stop and talk to cats but the cats never seem to like the attention, unlike puppies. If I could have a word with Buddy I’d tell him that whatever he doesn’t eat goes to Finney. If I know cats, and I think I do, that’ll rev up the appetite.

  2. Stacy!
    Hang on there.
    Cats are fine as long as they decide to live and eat.
    We lost our little black Micro over night just a month ago. While I was still in hospital. We can’t stop them
    when the give up. But I believe Buddy want to stay with you., so let him.

  3. Oh man, I’m sorry that happened while you were in the hospital. Talk about a bad patch. That was life really kicking you when you were down.
