Nixon the cat is a twidgety lil’ bastard

First, twidgety is a word. It’s a combination of “twitch” and “fidgety” because I said so. 

I moved my foot a quarter inch, and he literally jumped about four feet in the air from a dead sleep, taking out all the various knick-knacks near him in the process. After that, he chased his tail, caught it, and seemed to interrogate it as to whether or not it was the cause of the great startling. Next, he attacked a pile of folded socks until they, I assumed, begged for mercy. Unsatisfied, now he’s staring at me like this:

I think he’s pissed and wants answers. I’m pretty sure he’s saying, “I will barf on something you love” with this look.

In summary, I think he’s a cokehead. 

JUST SAY NO, KITTY!

9/30/11: I’d appreciate it if the Tumblrverse could send good vibes to Marley, one of our cats. That’s him grinning and begging for a drink from the faucet.

He’s at the vet tonight, into the morning, after we rushed him to the vet Friday afternoon. He had a blocked urethra (ouch) and if we hadn’t taken him, it could have been much more serious. Luckily, it looks like there’s no damage or complications, so hopefully he’ll be home later this morning.

But I still feel the good vibes would be cool. Thanks, folks!

10/1/11: He came home, he’s a little lethargic, but it looks like he’s going to be fine! Thank you for the messages and notes :)

10/2/11: We had to rush Marley back to the vet tonight at 1:00 AM after the same problem started up again. He’s going to be in the hospital for a few days now while they treat it a little more aggressively with IV fluids and antibiotics. 

So yeah. Good vibes still really appreciated. We’re worried, but the vet’s optimistic. I’ll post more when I know more.

10/2/11: We heard from the vet this evening. He has a raging bladder infection and is still going to receive IV fluids through tonight and into tomorrow. If he’s able to keep peeing on his own, they may turn off the fluids and see how he does. He’s more alert today and seems to be experiencing less pain, so overall, it looks like he’s doing better. 

Andrew (my husband) and I appreciate the emails and messages quite a bit. Marley was his kitty originally, and moved in with us in 2009 after Andrew’s parents cared for him for a bit. He’s got an awesome little personality and we can’t wait ‘til he can come home.

10/4/11: MARLEY CAME HOME! He’s got a cautionary clean bill of health, provided the antibiotics continue to work and we stick to new food, well, forever. He needs to eat special food for cats that are prone to urinary problems. We have (literally) $5 left after paying the bill, but several of our friends helped us out with it. I was so relieved they helped, and even more relieved to pick him up from the vet today. Thank you to everyone who reblogged and sent good karma his way.
