Things are more or less back to normal here at home. For me, anyway. I am still looking for a free phone app that will let me post from my phone to here … any suggestions? It will be much appreciated! :)
A couple of days ago I noticed our “house cat” (actually, we don’t own him; he just comes and goes as he like. we always have food and water for him here at home) was acting kind of strange. He was all jittery and looks so suspicious of anyone coming to pet him. Then I noticed some dried blood on his left side! That’s when I found out that he has been shot again. Yes, again.
The first time was really terrible for us, and I wasn’t sure if he would live. I couldn’t operate on him myself (no practice, and no equipment!) and bringing him to a friend’s clinic might prove to be more harmful to him (he has never been caged and is so distrustful of other people). Anyway, I gave him antibiotics, and it was a good thing he responded well. And now it’s happened again!
Though he doesn’t seem to be totally affected, I still don’t like the idea of him going out and be shot again. Plus, I really hope that people who do this to animals will come to their senses – it’s not doing anyone any good! The stray cat population in our area has drastically lessened, and am sure it’s because of the “cat shooter”.
Anyway, that is part of life. For “our” cat, it is always a risk every time he goes out. Hopefully, he too will come to his senses and realize that he doesn’t need to go far to find a home. We’ll always be here for him. :)
