This morning I took a turn for the worse and was rushed to the vet as I had four abcesses on my face and neck wounds that weren't healing as they should. The wound in my ear was infected and had to be surgically reopened and drained as did the major one on my face. All day today I remained at the vet being given strong IV antibiotics and I just returned home.
The vet told my dad that judging from my wounds, I stood my ground and the attacker probably didn't fare very well.
I have an infection from the fight that has spread through my system, but the antibiotics should fix me up in no time.
I tried to protect my sisfur Bastet and defend my home. I am Pharoah and that is what I do. I look after my furmaly and home.

Last night I entered into a most terrible fight with a demon right from the annals of Egyptian mythology. It all began yesterday when this demon with the glowing yellow eyes approached my sisfur, Bastet. Being the lady she was, she made no attempt to befriend him, however, this TOM thought differently. From my window I watched in horror as Bastet crouched on the ground, ears back, hissing in fear. This demon crept closer and closer, his head bowed, teeth bared and ears back.
Frantically I scratched at the door, trying to open it, however, I was unable to do so. GrandMeowmy ran to Bastet as did the Daddy Cat that is the protector of the neighborhood. He ran like a ram, butting this yellow eyed demon in the belly, rolling him to the ground. Grandmeowmy scooped Bastet up in her arms and carried her inside, her not being physically hurt. But as all furrends know and understand, she will have no other Tom but her Sweet Baba Boy.
THe stage was set for the fight. I finally was able to get out, searching and searching for this demon Tom to avenge the honor of my sisfur Goddess. But the coward would not meet me in the daylight. Instead, he laid in waiting, hiding in the dark shadows where he could not be seen.
As the clock struck midnight, so did the demon strike. In the silence of the night, between the shadows of the trees, I felt the stinging slash to the left side of my cheek. Instantly I turned, raised myself up as tall as I could, just like the cobra God of Egypt and struck my foe with both feet. He left out a blood curdling meow, but I must admit, he was a formidable foe.
He didn't return my strike, but we both had much to say to one another. I don't know how much time passed, but Grandmeowmy, Grandcat and my Dad's new lady, found us.
GrandDad chased that demon away, and Dad's new lady carried me in, with Grandmeowmy holding treats to me. I was carried inside and my war wound is not terrible. I spent the night in a warm bed feeling very sore and my war wound stinging.
Early this morning Grandmeowmy carried me upstairs to drink from the fountain of the Goddess Bastet for healing. I ate treats, watched the birds with my sisfur Bastet and I felt much better. Grandmeowmy is watching for infection. I as Pharoah will heal from this attack and my sisfur, the Goddess Bastet, is avenged.

'They were rocking in Boston, Philadelphia PA,' as the song goes, and yesterday we were rocking here in Fredericksburg as well. A 5.8 earthquake hit here yesterday just before 1:00PM. Being about 30-40 miles from the epicenter, we shook almost 60 seconds. Sometime after 12:15 I could hear Grandmeowmy come back home from school taking things to her car and returning to school. It was that time I was outside with Dad on the patio when we noticed there was no sound of birds, squirrels, no birds were flying. Everything was strangley still. Then suddenly, shortly before 1:00 PM, it started with a loud rumbling like a helocopter followed by violent shaking. Dad was having a terrible time standing up.He was saying it reminded him of the 'EWarthquake' ride in Universal Studios in Orlando. I was with him on my leash outside and I puffed up like a blowfish.
After the quaking stopped, Dad and I walked around inside the house and picked up everything we found on the floor or what had fallen over so Grandmeowmy wouldn't be upset. Dad tried to call to Grandmeowmy at school to find out how she was, but cell phones were not operating do to the emergency. Outside Dad and I found everything pretty solid, no foundation shifts, no broken windows, cracks in the foundation or downed trees. It looks like there are a few more cracks in our drive way and it may be raised up a bit. There is a crack at the base of our front porch brick walkway and it is raised less than a quarter of an inch. We live in a subdivision and the subdivision pool has a long crack in the bottom, so the pool will be closed for the season.
Even though during the quake, I could hear things falling to the floor in closets and the garage, nothing seemed to be damaged seriously. However, in the town of Fredericksburg, itself, there was structural damage to the older houses and building. Bricks fell off buildings, windows broke, and a few old chimneys fell from houses. Today we will know a little bit more of the damage.
Yesterday GrandDad hurt his right knee pretty badly getting to safety and he doesn't know how he did it. He was rushing to safety that is all he knew, but he is unable to bend it, he is walking on a cane and needs help to get dressed and undressed. Today he is calling the doctor and since Grandmeowmy is home from school today because schools are closed for damage assement, she will take him to the doctor. He can't drive.
Other than that, we are truly blessed that it wasn't worse. Now, our eyes are on Hurricane Irene. Please, those of you on the coastlines, take shelter.
