    The Captain and The Amazing Inflating Cat

    OK - first off, the inflating cat...

    IttyBittyKitty has a problem. She periodically inflates as if she were 5 years pregnant. I'm not exaggerating - she gets very big and round. It takes about a month or two to happen. Then.... She leaks a lot of fluid, and goes back to normal size.

    We took her into the vet, but the vet couldn't figure out what was going on. She tried an X-ray, but couldn't see through the fluid. The vet decided that it was probably some sort of cancer, and suggested that, at IttyBitty's age and size, we should just keep an eye on her and make sure she isn't suffering.

    But the cat acts completely normal, this was a month ago, and IttyBitty is currently uninflated, and still normal.


    Second, The Captain...

    So two days ago I was out cooking on the grill when I heard a cat meowing. I said to K'roe "I heard a cat outside" (this is how we usually get our cats). By the next day, K'roe had the cat in the house. We've called her "The Captain" because she is missing an eye. The other eye doesn't look too good, but at least it's still there. We're taking her into the vet on Monday.

    Do they make eye patches for cats?

    She's a real sweet cat - loves to be held & petted.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    1. I'm sorry to hear about IttyBitty. I hope it's nothing serious.

    2. We used to have a one eyed cat. He had two eyes when we got him, but he got into a fight with either one of our turkeys or some crows (we lived on a farm and both, the turkeys and crows, had the balls to do whatever pleased them).
    He did not have a patch but I like the idea.

    Lol, the title sounds like an odd kitty superhero team!

    I hope they are both okay!
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
