Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Shit. Fuck. Damn.

Sorry for the vulgarity in the title, but I'm not happy. One of my cats (Smokey - the latest photo of him is here) went blind yesterday. Completely, suddenly, and inexplicably. Thus, my lack of posting - I'm just not in the mood. He has a possible urinary tract infection, tiny kidneys, renal failure, possible diabetes, and right now he's at the vet getting an MRI to determine if he has a brain tumor. Since yesterday he seems to have lost the will to live, which is shocking, because he has, since coming to live with us, been such a happy cat. He isn't interested in eating or drinking, and we don't know if he'll regain it. If he doesn't have a tumor, all the problems he has are treatable, but if he doesn't adjust to the blindness, that's a whole different issue. We may decide to put him down today - I don't know. Sorry for bumming anyone out, but that's why I've been silent, at least for yesterday and today.

I wish expressing sincerity was as easy as snark, either here or in the real world, but anyhow...I'm sorry to hear that.

I'm sorry too. Hopefully the cat can adjust --- if not, hopefully it can all be ended with the minimum of fuss and pain.

Thanks, guys. He made it through yesterday, but we'll see about today - he has to go see a neurologist because he does have a tumor. Fun.
