I'm sure by now most of my furrriends have read Harrison's diary, but I wanted ta takes a moment here ta tell you my version of tha story, even though it's probably tha same as my Mom's, BUT, she loves Harrison and me so maybe she sounds like she's got favfurites or something.
Tha day was going good-like most Sundays, ya knows? I slept in tha bed room with Mommy that night before, but didn't on Friday 'cause I was having fun on my cat tree in the living room, and on Sunday I was having fun in my window seat, so I decided that I would stay there fur the day. I was all stretched out nice on the bed on the fuzzy blankie that Indiana and I used ta shares, and Mommy was in the living room with Harrison. She decided that she would come back with me, and had stuffs in her hands (it's her faults I swear!) and went through the baby gate and usually Harrison is not so anxious to leap ovfur it, but this day was not like any other-of course too this weekend I was getting better with him and watching him close and eating my foods, even though he was staring at me...but anyways, his defurmination was strong like a Jedi cat! He jumped ovfur the gate and Mommy reached quickly ta shut the door but he was still too quick. Well me, being a princess a'purrrfections, I just looked up from the bed where my pretty little head was layin and alls a sudden HE HIT ME!!! I flew off tha bed and he did too, and Mom threw tha stuffs on tha floor and flew too-and somehow my pee leaked out again, and then the nightstand moved, and I moved and Harrison moved and Mommy moved too-all the way to the other wall where she put her hands on Harrison and he settled and I made a run fur it.
His collar came off a'him and evfurrything and he was already wearing his Calming Collar. Mom left him in tha room a'disarray and came to check on me. I was ok by then, just shook up and wanting some affections. Mommy immediately decided that my affections had ta wait, 'cause a something in a behavior book saying don't baby the "victim cat" but also, she decided that Harrison needed ta calms down and she needed ta clean up too-so she took one of the cat trees and put it in the bathroom, along with Harrison and shut tha door!
That meant it was my turn though-fur a washcloth bath, and boy I didn't wants it, but taht was also too 'cause I was hurting a lot. I didn't let Mommy see right away, but I was hurting fur sure. Mommy helped me clean up my not so fluffy pants and I wanted ta cuddles, so she let me. She got some of tha Spirit Essences too and put some on my forehead and paws. Harrison knew he did a naughty 'cause not a yeowl or mew was heard from the bathroom.
A little while later Mommy noticed that I didn't wants ta eat my dinner, and I love dinner. she looked me ovfur and then she saw it-I had a baaaad booboo right underneath my right paw-underarm area-kinda hidden if you wasn't looking fur it. Mommy tried ta pick me up and I wasn't happy. she gots a washcloth and washed it off-it was icky and bloody, and then she decided I needed ta see the vet doc doc, just in case.
Well, I had no objections fur once...she wrapped me up in my soft pink blankie and put me in the carrier and off we went. It was scary fur both of us 'cause, well I nevfur went to the emergency place and the furst and last time Mommy went was when Indiana became my angel brofur. Akshully she did hope that the same doc doc was there, but she wasn't-we got some big ol'musclie dude who wasn't very good if ya asks me. But the guy who checked us in was so nice ta me-he gave me so much loves and was so gentles 'cause he knew I hurt, and guess what-he and Mommy even found another boo-boo that I had!
SO back ta this musclie dude-he was kinda a meat head MOL! That's how Mommy felt, I wonder if it was turkey meat-anymeow, so he had them clean my wounds and stuffs and I had ta get my hair shaved by them, and then I had ta gets needles, like fur infection and fur pain. Mommy had a question aboout the pain stuffs though 'cause I had some medicines left ovfur at home fur pain and when Mommy read online if it interacted with my fluoxitine, it said yes, and something about heartrates-and this turkeybutt head said that you can't get good info on tha internets always, and that I was gonna get tha lowest dose pawsible. Well, Mommy was skepticle, but the nice guy who helped us in said not to worry at all, and Mommy remembered how good they were to Indy when he was so sick, and thank goodness this boar's-head faced doc doc wasn;t there that night.
I was out quickly, in about an hour fur the whole thing. There were some other sad cases there that night-one lady had a doggie she had just rescued from tha shelter a couple days befur bleeding from somewheres that she shouldn't be! Another couple brought in a doggie who was all dressed in a sweater and jewels and they rushed that doggie right in, something about ingesting some kinda substance that not good, of tha drugs or something kind, and had ta get put on an IV-and then there were these two doggies and Mommy tries not ta judge, but this lady was not kewl-one doggie was on tha floor and the other on their mom's lap, and they were about my size, and the one that was sick was throwin up and then when they finally went ta takes her in, she just let the sick doggie roll off her lap and plop-boom, bump itself on the floor! She didn't even try ta helps him up! His name was Caesar, and poor Caesar was not feeling well. The nice guy that helped me rushed ta helps him and his mom wasn't even like blinkin an eye, and was just like-oh he must be clumsy 'cause he's sick. *hiss*
So now I am home-the other thing Mommy didnt likes about this beefy-juice dude is that he should not be tha er vet if he isn't gonna thoroughly checks cats out 'cause he totally missed like two more boo-boos I had that Mommy found yesterday!!!!!! She missed them too, but the doc doc's job is to check-and if they were checking and shaving fur the other ones, why did they overlook this?! But I am ok, Mommy is happy I am ok, and I has the medicine we gots ta put on me fur now, so she just put it on those spots too. I got the 'partment to myselfs and fur extra comfurts I have been snuggling really close to Mommy, something I hasn't done in awhile, 'cause my window seat is so comfy. So close that I thought she's like a nibble on my toesies and so I put them right in her face MOL!
Harrison is hanging in the bathroom still. I know he's there, but I'm not upset. Mommy spoke with our vet doc doc Monday and she said to please not give up all hope yet, and lets try Harrison on a different medicine, since that one obviously didn't helps him with the aggressions towards me, mostly just with his crying a lot.
So that's what's happening. Thank you furrriends fur all the help you have been giving my Mommy. She feels bad that she hasn't tried everything (like the giant crate and stuffs) and is working her best to figure this out. She called tha behaviorist dude again too, and left a message. She's got more Feliway too and the essences and stuffs and calming air spray too. I wanna like Harrison-I did at furst a little, it's just gonna take more time and loves and patience. Maybe he wants ta be top cat-maybe he was just so tired a being separate from me that I am like a tease he just couldn't stands ta avoids anymore-I am not sure.
Ingen is almost home too! I have missed all my furrriends special days these last couple of days, but my purrrrs are with you always.
Also, if you furrriends wouldn't mind purrring fur a doggie, one of our good furrriends that we made on Catster has a doggie who is feeling so sick. His name is Augie and he is going to the vet doc docs-Purrr fur him that he's ok, not scared and that his mommy is ok, thank you furrrs =)
PSSS-Ya know, I wrote this in my comments when one of my bestie furrriends commented that we has patience in our house and I thought it was important ta add it to my diary too-See, it's so weird 'cause I am the one who got hurt and stuff, and am scared because of Harrison, but I am doing ok even though I has my wounds...but I think the reason Mommy is trying so hard ta makes it work is because when she went into the bathroom to visit Harrison and give him yum yums, all he wanted to do was clumb up to Mommy and have her hold him. Like, he needed ta put his head on her chest and just squish as hard as he could inta her, and she sees how much it seems like he needs love and patience. so that is why she keeps trying.
Kitty P! Your momma is the most patient and loving lady, I swears. That's so pawsome she's still trying. I'm glad your vet doc is so good that she wants to keep trying too. We're still purring it's all gonna work out soon. We love you guys! I think Alex needs to have a talk with Indy because he has to do something to help this siteation.
Oh Finney-you are right! We needs some Angel power! The sad thing, the most sad thing, is that I'm tha one that got hurt, but I'm ok-but when Mommy went to visit Harrison in the bathroom, all he did was want to be held close to her chest and put his face there...I think that's why Mommy has so much patience-'cause he seems like he really needs it. I think maybe I will rewrite that in my diary
I know honey and I am very concerned about you! VERY much so. It seems you both have some serious issues and I don't know what happened to Harrison before but he must have been badly neglected to cling to your mom so tight. Try to think of it that way sweetie. He must never have had what you and Indy had with your mom. We don't like hearing you got hurt. It's hard because we just don't know what to suggest but I think from now on we're just gonna come and offer support because I think your mommy is really doing great. She's doing everything she can think of.
Oh-we love the support-even though it seems like we are always saying the same thing ovfur and ovfur. We appreciate suggestions too-and feel sorry if it sounds like we don't listen. One of Mom's furriends even said what about finding me a new home-not in a bad way at all, but just 'cause I am not as needy like as Harrison, but Mommy said no-I'm furrrst yes, but I am her baby too. If Harrison ends up having to find another home, it's gotta be the most purrrfect one evfur.
Well we never would have said that! You were there with your momma first and yes, if you ever had to find Harrison a new home, you'd both have to be happy with whoever adopted him.
I'm also glad you are still trying! As long as the pros say not to give up yet, we won't give up on your situation either! We're relieved that you still have a few options left, and will be purraying that something clicks to make things work out without constant supervision & separation. Luv, Tink & Snow
Kitty P, I'm sorry that you got so many owies from Harrison. Gee, that wasn't nice of him at all. Can your Mom take him to the PetSmart groomers and have his claws cut short? (call ahead b4 you go, so that you're not there together with a lot of doggies) Wow, the emergency room sounds so scary. I'm glad that you're OK. The big crate would be an option. I don't know if you or Mr. H should go in there but your Mom will know. If the behavior guy would be available, I think that could be really helpful.
Many purrs to your both and to your Mom,
Sending you lots of healing purrs. I wish we had some suggestions for you, but we don't have any ideas. Just keep trying.
I am sorry about this event. Both of you had difficulties that day. Alex tries to get into my place and does at times but I know that he will be removed quickly too.
It has been about two years for us. I do go out now and go to my old places while Alex is in another room. We are sensitive animals and need our space. It must be hard on your owner as it was for mine. She and I have a wonderful relationship.
Alex has her to himself in the living room and I see her in the bedroom. Patience is the key. Your mistress has a lot of that.
