Mom left Kitcat and I both loose in the house while she worked last evening. When she rushed home after work, I took my time to show up. She petted me. Kitcat slowly showed up with sleepy eyes and I sniffed her butt. No hissing. We actually got along! Mom found only a few minor things knocked over.
Since then, Mom twice found us sleeping together. I learned that if she is bugging me, I just have to hiss at her or give her a swat. Mom gives her time outs so I can relax a bit.
We have sort of even played together. Mom is getting a lot of this on video but is too busy to process it yet.
On the down side. I am having troubles eating. I cannot eat my dry food (Mom gives me all the Fancy Feast I want) and am puking lots. I even puked up a bit of blood on Monday and on Wednesday. I kept Mom up all last night begging for food, but when she gave me some, I didn't want it. I really want to eat grass, but that makes me puke, so Mom won't let me eat grass today.
Mom made me a vet appointment. That is a huge deal because Mom doesn't know if she will be able to stuff me in a carrier. And this will be my first time in a vehicle for almost 6 years. Plus, at the vet clinic, they may have to put me under to examine me because I am semi-feral and will for sure freak out. Mom worries big time about the stress of a vet visit for me.
Our vet can't get me in until Monday. That also worries Mom. That is a long way off if I continue to have these troubles.
Anyhow, I am still very active, bright eyed, responsive to Mom's pets and cuddles, and very interested in Kitcat. If I take a bad turn before Monday, Mom will barge me into a vet clinic no matter what.
Mom will probably look for a larger cat carrier, before then, to make it a bit easier to stuff me in. We need prayers for that day as both Mom and I will be on super duper high stress alert.
Glad you and your baby sister are getting along! I am worried about you not eating and your vet not being able to see you until Monday. My brother had a similar problem (ie, not eating & throwing up, though no blood) and our vet said it is a very serious thing for a cat not to eat for several days. Too much weight loss over a short period of time can cause our organs to start shutting down. Purring for you!
Glad to hear that ou're getting along with Kitcat a bit more.
I really hope you are feeling better soon. Don't be scaring your mommy too much.
I too hate the carrier (when it's vet time) so mom & dad got one that has a door in the top too so there's a bigger spot to put me in. something like this... http://www.petco.com/product/7397/Petmate-Double-D oor-Deluxe-Pet-Carriers.aspx?CoreCat=CatSFC_Carrie rs

Durn it, I was all happy when I started reading your diary then I got all sad. :~( I'm glad you are getting along with Kitcat; sleeping together is better than sisfur Em and I do!
But I'm so terribly sorry and worried that you are not eating and are throwing up! I'm purrrrring hard that it's nothing serious.
When mommy has to put me in my carrier she stand it on end so the opening is at the top and then she scruffs me, with some support under my chest too with the other hand, and lowers me in. Mommy read once that there are actually some kind of "happy" pheromones or something like that released in a kitty when they are held correctly by the scruff and that is why they will go limp and not struggle...
Purring for you Squirrel!
Please don't be sick! We couldn't take it if anything happened to you! Purrs that you will be Well!
