There are very few dull moments when you own eight cats. Someone is always annoying someone else, clawing up furniture, knocking things off shelves, or barfing up a hairball. The excitement never ends. Recently, one of our little guys became very ill with a urinary blockage. He spent four days shuttling between the vet and the emergency animal clinic, where he received IV fluids and was closely monitored. We learned a lot about cats' urinary health and spent way more money than you would ever expect to spend on one little cat. The good news is that he made it through and is now back to his old self again... mischevious as ever.
Now that the cats have decided they like canned food, we go through seven to eight cans a day. That means my weekly grocery list includes 50+ cans of cat food. Last weekend, the girl bagging my groceries asked if there was a special on cat food. When I responded with, "No, we just have lots of cats," she gave me that look. The look that says, "Oh, you're one of those crazy cat ladies."
