'Tis time

Tonight we swap the clocks out,  and I can assure you  no one is more pleased about this than my big old oofy cat, charlie, who gets up when I do and insists that dark is not a problem, and I insist that I have no wish to see him (or hear him) being consumed by a coyote, fisher cat, or whatever is out there that eats cats.

The house rule is, if I can't see the trees, he doesn't go out.

  1. Our eldest cat (16) is house bound for a day or two after undergoing surgery today - bladder stones removed.
    But do you think he is happy about being kept inside? Not on your life!
    Tough! Until the stitches heal he stays put.

    1. They really don't understand what the fuss is about. I've had several female cats, all of them at one time or another went to the vet for The Operation, and at least three of them got bored with the stitches and removed them surgically, one bite at a time.

      I didnt realize cats could get gallstones, but they do seem to have the same problems we do, with a few notable exceptions.

      Poor fella, I hope he'll be okay. 16 is a mighty age for a cat, for sure.

    1. And good luck with that one, eh.

      When one of my toms was neutered, I was instructed to keep him in, keep him quiet, and give him about two days to recover.
      Imagine my horror when I realized he had gotten out and was sitting firmly (ow ow ow) on the gravel driveway. He survived, probably in better shape than I was at that point....
