I am the youngest of my family. I was adopted by my Mum and Dad who I love very much (even though I bite them). I like to do nothing and everything (all at once). I have Cat-itude and I wanted this blog to tell you all what I think about everything. So listen up.

My doggy sister is sick.

This is my doggy sister Maddison. Mum says she is a Border Collie cross Jack Russell (whatever that means), but people say she is a mini border collie or even at times a black fox. I like her as she is always really nice to me. She has pretty eyeshadowed eyes huh.

Maddison has been sick. The vet said that she has heartworm. Mum and Dad are really upset about this because they said Maddy has taken prevention medication her entire life. The vet said it is just bad luck. Maddy is special because the vet said it is the first case they have seen in 5 years!

She has been undergoing treatment but it is pretty horrid. Mum said she had two arsenic based injections (I don't like needles myself), and now she has to remain quiet and calm for 4-6 weeks. Despite that, we may still lose her to the rainbow bridge. I hope not.

When Mum or Dad are home Maddy sits quietly under the table to be close to them.

Mum took three weeks off work to care for Maddy (and me too of course), but now she has to go back to work, so Maddy has to stay in her cage in the bathroom so she remains nice and quiet.
Mum says it breaks her heart to have to see her locked up. I can't see any pieces of Mum's heart laying around though, so maybe she put tape on it or something to mend it.

I liked having Mum home. She brushed me sometimes twice a day and we cuddled a lot. I wish Mum could be home all the time. (so does Mum I think).

I hope my sister is okay. Mum says the first two weeks are the biggest danger and she had the injections 3 weeks ago now, so hopefully she is doing okay.

When I first saw this it was right after the news report of contaminated dog food here in the US. Some people are losing their dogs because of this.

It is hard to stay inside all the time, but I hope Maddison gets better.

Lots of hugs and purrayers.

Oscar, I don't know if I like dogs, but I'll take your word for it that Maddy is nice to kitties. She's very pretty and looks intelligent (for a dog). I hope she gets well soon. For your Mum's heart, and Maddy's, purring is the best treatment we kitties can give.

Hope Madison has gotten better.

We humans do have a strange way of putting tape around our broken hearts. You'd be surprised.
