Climate of cat-ostro(v)e

And now for something completely – but differently – alarming. At least to me.
As some of you may know, my feline companion, Amber, has a mind of her own (I know, I know … what cat doesn’t?!) and is very vocal.
So I became somewhat alarmed yesterday when she became very, very quiet. I was even more alarmed, today, when I realized that she had not eaten for two days – and had been very quiet throughout, while leaving no evidence of any typically expected litter-box behaviours.
Invoking the Precautionary Principle, I decided to call the vet – who summoned us to his office. One and a half hours (and $250) later, we don’t know what the problem is.
But when we returned home … after an infusion of H2O as well as other tests, extractions and injections, Amber appeared to be (and sounded!) more like her “normal” self:
But speaking of non-responsive CAGW cats, be sure to take a look at IPCC Lead Author and BC Green Party candidate and Deputy Leader, Andrew Weaver‘s recent whines ‘n whoop ‘em ups via Canadian PR hack Jim Hoggan’s high falutin’ newly constituted all Canadian SmearBlog. And with an endorsement from Dirty Old Man, David Suzuki, how could Hoggan be wrong, eh?!
Bottom line for me: I’m far more concerned about what the vet will tell me about the results of Amber’s blood tests than I am about any CAGW alarmist hype.
Perhaps I shouldn’t be. But I am.
