… to bring you a cat.
but if you have to do this amputation to save the life of the cat – for whatever reason you think is valid – then please, please, PLEASE, microchip your cat! microchipping is not expensive … especially if you’ve already put in the hundreds of dollars for the amputation surgery anyway! it’s nothing! and it’s instant identification. honestly, i can’t help but think that a person who declaws and doesn’t microchip is someone who is more concerned about their leather couch than the safety and whereabouts of their cat. or, it’s someone who simply isn’t educated … so maybe this little blog entry might help just one cat owner. who knows?
sure, you might think that your declawed cat will always be indoors, but accidents happen folks. please be prepared. this big, wonderful, MAGICAL beast was not microchipped and there are no “lost” records at the shelter going back for months. i have tried my best.
we have already had him tested for FIV and he is gaining weight steadily on a raw diet. i can’t help but think that at one time he was quite a confident animal, but must have been on the streets for some time as he is extremely skittish of many noises around the house. still, this boy has much to say …
over the past week, after many failed names, Aslan seems to be the winner. he responds to it, even if he isn’t exactly lion-hearted.
regardless of whether Aslan can stay or has to be rehomed, whoever ends up with this magnificent, adoring creature draped all over their lap – as he is prone to do – will be an incredibly lucky individual.
now … that thump you hear is me getting off the soap box i promised i wouldn’t get up on. thank you.
