The topic: Requesting prayers, healing thoughts, positive energy….


Anything that might help.

Last week, Red started making this horrible gagging sound when he ate kibble I put out at night, the treat stuff.  It’s not big, it’s small little cylindrical pieces.  Then I realized his meow was getting raspy.

Like Lonee, he’s mostly feral.  With her, she got weak enough that I could grab her and get her into the bathroom to feed her (I wouldn’t try that now, she’s feeling much better).  I tried to get Red this afternoon and he left part of a claw sheath in my hand and ran up into the rafters.  I didn’t try to get him from there.

I’ve been emptying out the garage and giving him canned food with a little water added, hoping that he’d eat it.  I’m scared something might be growing in his throat. I’m hoping/praying he’s just got a sore throat.  If it doesn’t show any signs of resolving, we’ll have to do what we can to get him into a carrier.

We’ve got a net for trapping back in the shop, never used, still in the original shipping package. And earlier this year, we got Brian some trapper’s gloves, the kind with Kevlar in them.  And today, I figured out a way that we might get Red into a carrier. By holding the carrier in front of the hole in the door from the garage.  If Red thinks I’m gonna try anything, he’ll leave the garage and go into the house.  If there was a carrier there, he’d most likely run into the carrier.

Brian’s reluctant to do anything right now, he thinks it was be too traumatic for Red. But if Red gets any worse, there won’t be a choice.

So, if you can send any kind of positive energy his way, I’d sure appreciate it.  He’s a great cat.

The topic: It’s TUMMY TUESDAY #58!


Welcome to the 58th edition of lisaviolet’s Tummy Tuesday.

Today’s Tuesday tum belongs to the lovely and talented young Miss Rory Gilmore.  I caught her taking a little catnap yesterday afternoon and had to smile at her initial position.  Of course, the flash woke the little princess up

But then she rolled over, found an equally comfortable position and continued her nap, none the worse for wear from the little interruption.


If you’ve got a Tummy Tuesday blog entry, feel free to post the link in the comment section or trackback to this entry. And if you put a link back to this page, then more kitties will get to show off their tummies!
