Dear Smudge,

Generally, you're a great cat. Affectionate, playful and tolerant of Aedan using you as a pillow.

However, if I EVER have to get up at 4AM again to breakup a catfight outside the front door? You'll be calling a cardboard box 'home'!

Yours in irritation and tiredness,
Tux aka She Who Fills The Food Bowl

I was going to put laundry in before going to bed...

But I think it can wait. ;)

Today at 6.30 Smudge was SUPPOSED to go to the vets. He's got some nasty red patches on his skin - I suspect he's picked up something fom the field nearby and obviously I want to get it sorted out.

Smudge, however, had other ideas. He went out at about 3pm this afternoon... and I'm still waiting for him to come in. *Sigh* I'd kept the cat box hidden but he must have known. Rotten cat. It's for his own good!

Of course, I'll still cuddle him when he comes in, because I'm a bit getting rather worried... but argh!

EDIT: He's come home after avoiding me for about seven hours! I don't think I'll mention that I've rescheduled the appointment for Saturday morning...

Cats. Oi.

Over the years Smudge has gifted me with various things... from birds and mice in varying states, (including, on one occasion, a duckling that was thankfully unhurt) to spiders and frogs.

Last night though, he really surprised me. And by surprised I mean 'Oh my fucking god, what's THAT?!'

It was, in fact, one of these:

Kitty update!

I was bathing the abscess with warm salt water, but it wasn't doing much, so on the advice of a few people I went to the pharmacy and got a bottle of wound wash. Smudge absolutely HATES it, but it seems to be working. It brings all the crap to the top and lets me wipe it off. A few minutes ago I got a *lot* of pus out, followed by blood, so I'm hopeful that it's mostly cleaned out now, though I'll keep treating it.

He's a bit swollen around his face, but that's to be expected. He is eating and seems to not hate me, so that's a good sign!

OK, I'm having a kitty crises again.

Smudge has been a bit off-colour the last couple of days and I noticed his head was sore. I kept a eye on him, but he seeed OK, just quiet. Today I've just seen pus on his head - by the looks of things it's an abcess which has burst. Can someone please tell me how to clean it up? Just use a cloth? In hiself he seems much brighter now, but I want to make sure its all out.


Pets. :)

My cat and dog have been seperated for roughly nine months. Yesterday Jupiter finally came home. It took somewhat less than 24 hours for things to return to normal.

I love my cat, really I do. But he gave me a hell of a scare last night. He slipped out when I wasn't looking, and didn't come back for four hours. By which point, I was frantic.

And tired.

It was 2am when he snuck out, so by the time he came back it was 6am. I'd tried to go to bed but I was far too worried to sleep. I'm going to be utterly useless today.

On the bright side, once he was back and I was breathing again, I found I was somewhat reassured. To know he can go wandering for so long and still find his way back, somewhat less than 48 hours from his arrival, is comforting.

I have to start posting this in installments.

~Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of - THE SMUDGE SAGA!!!~
