A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.
Wednesday, July 22, 2009
In a strange coincidence, I had already chosen Sugar, Scotchy and Stryder for my next batch of limericks before Sugar was attacked, so I have decided to start with her. Sugar is the oldest of the cats, but she is still a young cat. She had a litter of five kittens and Stryder is one of them. She is a very loving cat and lives up to her name. All the kitties are indoor/outdoor cats, but they mostly stick close to home. Sugar was attacked by a pack of wild dogs and severely mauled. She has really bad punctures on her back and a lot of bruising around her lungs. She was really lucky that her lungs were not punctured. She is still at the vet as of my writing this, as she didn't come out of anesthesia as expected. It turns out that she also has kidney problems, which prevented her metalbolizing the anesthetic as she should have. The one good thing that has come out of this trauma is that now her vet knows about the kidney problems and can treat them. As Sugar is still a young cat, she stands a good chance of recovering from both the mauling and the kidney problems. She does need a lot of care and her family is very worried about her. If all goes well, Sugar should be going home on Thursday.
Sugar is as sweet as she can be, But now she is feeling a bit puny. I'm sure she'll get better When the vet will let her Go home to her loving family.
