Fatticus the cat

Fatticus is my older sister's cat. There is a history here with this cat as apparently it hates everyone and everyone hates it.I am not sure why but the following is a letter....written in jest for those that don't have a sense of humor.....by my older sister.
"Fatticus is a wonderful cat. You will never need an alarm clock again (I sure hope your get up time is 3am) -- a serious energy saver. Loves to be petted as long as you don't hit the sweet spot on his stomach and he will bite the hell out of you. Loves Schnauzers -really all little dogs are his love....(hehehehe.) Eats like a dog. (a big ass dog) Has a unique way of letting you know he's hungry-- OH-- I guess that's his non-stop high pitched meow. You only need to empty the cat litter once a day if you have dogs (they tend to carry the "refuse" around the house as a "gift"). He has a pedigree believe it or not but is just not appreciated by the men in the family. He is looking forward to being moved to a much drier climate
So how's this for making someone want Fatticus??? Not everyone has the opportunity you have to have a perfectly good used cat that is more or less house trained, comes with litter box, bed, brush, shampoo (oh yeah you should try giving him a bath it's worth a mastercard moment), pillow, toys, one bag of food, litter and 100 dollars to buy the rest of his monthly food. With work and discipline you might even get him trained to go outside to the restroom however, cleaning that off the rock in the backyard will be dicey. Now for the best part, don't ever leave the bathroom door open while you are using the facilities because he expects to be picked up while you are sitting there.

I feel this will be the breaking point for you and your loved ones. How could
you not want a fabulous 23 pound loving "gentle" cat like this? There aren't many opportunities to find a real Maine Coon. Don't let this fall from your grasp. It's an exciting time in your life and I'm sure this addition to your family will make the transition mucheasier.

Always thinking of you all!!!!"

A sad story

I was at the vet today for Clancy. While we were there, there was a gentleman sitting on the bench waiting with his little Yorkshire terrier who is 9. There were tears on his face and the dog was curled up in his jacket. I assumed they were there for something awful, like putting the dog to sleep. Well, if you know me, you know I can't stand not knowing and so I asked. Turns out, the gentleman has had to move into an apartment that will not allow dogs (I was afraid to ask why what with the tough economic times people are suffering) and he was turning his 9 year old dog over to a rescue and he was waiting for them to come and get him. Truly, if I did not already have 4 dogs, I would've taken her home with me. I was so sad for both of them.
Sigh.....what a way to end a day.
