Mafia Warning

I'm currently in the middle of a 3-week cat sitting job for my neighbor's kitty. I've had this scheduled for months now, and really hadn't been looking forward to it, mostly because I knew how my being away from home so much would upset Truffles. (So much for that worry...)

It has actually turned into such a blessing. Waking up each day to know that a cat still needed me has been the greatest gift.

Over the past several days she has developed some skin issues that we decided to have checked out by the vet. Her owner was able to come home Monday afternoon for the appointment (she uses a mobile vet), but I wanted to be there as well since I'll be the one administering the meds.

Everything is fine; right now the vet is leaning towards a seasonal allergy, but needless to say by the time it was all over she wasn't exactly happy with the home invasion.

************************

On Tuesday morning this is the first thing I saw when I walked in the door. Doesn't it look like a mafia warning?


Here they were in happier days:


Do you think she was pretending the mouse was one of the humans in her life while she was killing it?

  26. She is a really cute kitty! I can totally see the meowfia moment there. It does seem like there could have been some pent up frustration released on that poor mousie.

  30. LOL! Very cute!
    As for skin issues, might it be a fish allergy? My 14 year old rescue cat just developed an allergy to fish. (Scabs on head, neck, and back.) After three weeks off all fish products she is finally healing. Many dry foods add fish meal as a supplement. :(
