Out of the Blue

I've been helping my neighbor's sister treat his cat for various ailments while my neighbor is on vacation. These treatments include administering a subcutaneous dose of saline every other day. The questionable joy of sticking an unhappy cat with a needle has fallen on me since this is something I have experience with, having provided the same treatment for my own cat when he fell ill years ago. Of course, as immortalized in the Seinfeld where Morty goes to work for Elaine at J. Peterman's, the elderly often like to get an early start, and today's call came at the crack of dawn, so that cat managed to get her full serving of saline before I had even a portion of my serving of coffee.

My mothers cat is having kidney failure. She doesn't have what it takes to give the thing a needle everyday though. Neither would I. She gives it some type of pill in its food. This thing is completely falling apart. It's going deaf and blind. It's a long haired cat, he can't groom himself so his hair is completely matted all over. She tried to cut some of it and cut the cat so she won't do it anymore. He stinks too, because he can't groom. He leaves blobs of hair wherever he lies. I always look at his recent bedding area and say: "Ma, your cat blew up again." His litter pan is in her basement. He will trek down there and see the pan in front of him and just let loose. Sometime on the wall, or on the floor. Can't figure that one out because sometimes he actually goes in the pan, maybe he's in oo much pain, I dunno. Sometimes he just goes at the bottom of the steps. He also goes nuts when anyone is in the kitchen. He's the loudest fucker I ever heard. He constanly walks in front of your path so you are forced to kick him. When you sit at the table to eat, he plops down right in front of your feet, so when you need to get up, you get to kick him in the face. I think he's turned masochistic(sp). I feel sorry for the state he's in, but after house sitting for a bit, I really hate that thing.
