Photo and a Haiku Wednesday: the sick cat edition
Poor little fella
I don't mind that you threw up
pink all over me
I love this crazy cat so much. Even when he meows at 5:00 am for a bowl of milk, I love him as I throw a pillow at him. Bela has what "rarely happens in cats" (according to the vet)-a middle ear infection. It's so bad his eardrum is ruptured. He just started acting sick on Monday...it's not serious or anything, he's been given a steroid shot, an antibiotic shot, and we have to give him three doses of penicilin a day...um, FOR A MONTH. Which is fun because as you read in the haiku, the first round was vomited out all over my hand...but he'll get better. He's our Tybalt the King of Cats, and I won't let that wimpy Romeo get him.

As I hate hell, all Montagues, and thee:
Have at thee, coward!"
