One of my kitties is sick!

I haven't been posting much anywhere except my blog ( ) lately as I'm being a nurse for my 5 yr old cat (the one from my avatar).

A couple weeks ago she yakked up a hairball from heck, and generally wasn't feeling well or eating well. She is gradually doing better, but I'm waiting on some tests from the vet, after running up quite a vet bill on OTHER tests. (see my blog for more information, and updates.)

Why, you may ask, spend so much on medical care for "just a cat"?

Megumi is a bit more than "just a cat" she's my support animal too, and even saved my life when she was a bit more than a year old. Currently, she mostly tells me to "sit down NOW" when I really need to sit down now... but back then I took a new medication for the first time, and ended up passed out with my BP rising to very scary levels. Megumi revived me by washing my face and meowing desperately, when I came to, I realized just how sick I was, and was able to call for help... I ended up in the ER, where they took care of me right away. If Megumi hadn't been able to rouse me, the next chance for me to be rescued would have been 2 HOURS later when my then teenaged daughter got home from school.

She's the best darn cat in the Universe.

Whether they save lives or not, our furry friends are like family members. Hope all goes well with Megumi.
