We Drugged Our Cat, Day 11

October 15, 2008

The facts are these: Gus has peed in the Beau Named Joe’s closet TWICE. Last night it was in his suitcase. And he threw up under the beau’s dining room chair. And he won’t show his face if the beau is around.

Gus is jealous.
He comes out and lets me sort of pet him when the beau isn’t home. He only hisses half the time when it’s just me.

I think we should get the beau his own kitty. Yeah? And then maybe Gus will come out of his shell? Yeah?

Tell me I’m not crazy.
(20 days until the election is over! 20 days until I can breathe again! 20 days until we can talk about a wedding and a new kitty! 20 days of work and I just mailed my absentee ballot! Have YOU Baracked the vote yet?)

    Be warned: two animals are a lot more than one.

    Just sayin…

    Poor guy! I hope it gets better, whatever happens.

    Gus sounds like my cat at home. Ollie HATES my sister and one of my sister’s old boyfriends. To the extent that she won’t even come out whenever my sis is there.

    Sorry about Gus 😦 Cats are always a little difficult. Maybe he just needs more time?

    Also, hooray for absentee voting! I feel so relieved being done. Good luck with the rest of the election!

    To be honest, the new kitty idea isn’t a bad one.

    Also, spray white vinegar into the closet. It will kill his sent.

    A of all, I love how we use “the facts were/are these” in our posts…it’s obviously because of Pushing Daisies!

    B of all, I hope if you get a new kitty it works out! The two kittens don’t exactly get along (they were just placed together a day before we got them) but they’re adapting to each other – surely other cats can, too!

    Hi I just ran across your blog! Anyone who has cats is awesome! hah! Poor kitty…maybe you should ask a vet? We thought our cat needed a new friend, and when we found this little kitten outside my aunt’s house one day, we took him in. Well…our cat #1 haaaaaaaates not having attention now and pretty much hates this new cat. They get along okay now (a year later), but you can tell. I think it just depends on the cat, though. Good luck 🙂

    I read an article today saying that dogs make owners happy and cats make owners chill. I think I’ll need a little more cat action in my life then.

    BTW, Renee, you’ve been tagged by the DomestiGals with a quirky post. Check out today’s blog posting to learn more.

    Thanks for being such a wonderful blogger in our community!

    Poor cat. I saw your video and he looks angry. Not sure if another kitty is the answer. I thought a second cat was the answer in our household when the first cat stalked me nonstop. Now, like Ben said, we just have more work. The one may have stopped chasing me, but now there are races and fights and still the occasional stalking.
