Beckham just did something really weird and I'm not sure what to make of it.

He was sitting on the back of the couch and all the sudden he started hacking. I thought he was going to barf or cough a hairball, but it was a different kind of hack. His eyes were really big and his ears were going flat. He just sat there hacking, looking possessed for about 15 seconds. Then he stopped, still looking out of it for a few seconds. He got up and went downstairs. I went to check on him and he seemed fine. It was feeding time so I fed the cats and he's eating now.

I don't know if that was a cat seizure or what, I've never seen anything like it.

Did you feed him just before that? Maybe he ate something and he choked, that's what it sounds like. Is he ok now?

Nope, I feed them at 7:30am and 10pm so I fed them right after it happened. He was sitting with me on the couch for at least an hour before that. Usually when he chokes/barfs, his stomach heaves and he makes this weird sound, but this was more like a hacking cough from his mouth and nose.

Maybe he had some fur stuck in his throat. Saki does weird shit like that sometimes.

I hope that's all it was. He just looked really possessed!

Perhaps I'm just nervous b/c my bosses cat died yesterday. It was actually his daughter's cat that slept with her in her bunk bed. She woke up to him crying and they thought he fell so they took him to the vet. He actually had a blood clot and died. There's no way they could have known and the vet said it wasn't likely he could do anything. Unfortunately what he tried did not work. Poor Pippin!

RIP

He looks like Jack. Poor kitty. Poor little girl, too.

It's been 3 months since Wayne's 5 month old Zooropa died, and 6 months since my ex-roommate gave away Max (the gorgeous Siamese we had).

I still can't come to terms with this. I thought time would heal. I just get so mad when people don't take pets seriously.

No kidding. When I found a little Bichon dog a few weeks ago, I called the shelter to ask if anyone had called looking for him. They said even if I did find the owner, I should bring him to the shelter and make them pick him up there so they could see all the other cats and dogs and how miserable they are b/c their owners didn't care about them enough to keep tabs on them.

I'm not one to treat an animal like a child, but I know they are entirely my responsibility because they have no way to provide or fend for themselves. I have an untreated chronic joint problem in my right foot and I'm supposed to get cortisone shots. Instead, I pay the vet for Kenya to get cortisone shots for her foot problem. I can deal with only being able to afford one so I get her treated instead b/c she doesn't deserve to suffer.

I was at Petsmart the other night, and I always go back to the corner of the store to see the cats they have there for adoption. I'm not thinking of getting another one, since Jack seems to have a sort of "only child" mentality, but I still like to sort of say hello to them. I hate reading the stories on the little cards outside their containers. There was a beautiful black cat who looked so loving; she kept gently headbutting the plastic and rubbing up against it because she wanted me to pet her (even though I couldn't). On the little card on the window, it said she'd been found in a bucket left outside the SPCA. Who can live with themselves after doing things like that? I hate when people think of pets as something they can just toss out when they get tired of them. I know sometimes people have to give up their pets for reasons beyond their control, but too many people have the wrong idea about what getting a pet entails, and that's why shelters are so full.

Looks like our Fergus, too. So sad!

I agree with what BonoIsMyMuse said, too. Every day there are ads in the "Absolutely Free" section in the classifieds in our paper like "moving, can't take with us." Makes me very sad!

I'm so happy for Bella and you. That's really good news.

and liesje, your's is ok now? I know the blew your mind, it would have mine.

Still no news on my Bela. Some kids told me yesterday they saw her at an apartment across the way, but I checked and she had 3 cats but not Bela. The cat the kids saw was gray and white but had a bob tail.. she hadn't seen Bela either, but knew who I was talking about. Said it's been weeks since she's seen her and asked what happened to her foot. That would account for the time I've had her.
Now I wonder if someone didn't pick her up. She had a collar I bought her but no tags yet. I was going to do that this past week. I waited too long, damn it. not sure it would have made any difference especially if someone stole her.

Can you post pictures around the building/neighborhood to see if anyone has found her? Maybe someone else brought her in to a vet or wherever they may bring strays?
