Sorry to hear your cat is sick, Scott. I hope it's nothing serious. I have two cats - one is a 13-year old American Shorthair - he's had cancer three times, and I can easily say that I've spent more on medical bills for him than for the rest of the family.
The other cat is a 2-1/2-year old Balinese, which for those of you unfamiliar with the breed, is a long-furred siamese. She is the ruler of the roost.
If either of them were to get sick, it would take all my energies to take care of them. I completely understand, and I hope your cat is better soon.
WTF is wrong w/some of you? whether you like cats or not if you've followed Scott/Dilbert for more than, oh, five minutes you'd know he obviously cares about his so responding like some of you have to him sharing this is just pathetic... personally, I feel sorry for those who've never known the joy of a loving cat - losing one (which I hope you're not) is tough (we did last March) but only because of the years you have with them (which I have to remind wife/kids). I hope yours gets better or if not at least goes quickly/decisively (thankfully ours did)...
As I was trying to remember how to log in, I was also trying to remember if your cat's name was Sarah. I see another poster mentioned Sarah, so I'll go with that. Sarah acts quite a bit like my own office cat, who has quite recently decided that she has to rub my right hand every time I'm pointing and clicking with the mouse. So get well soon Sarah. Your job is to help Scott grow unexpected new neural pathways.
WTF!? Are you that stupid? Get a dog. Cats are not your best friend. Not your friend at all. If the cat was BIGGER it would eat you!!! That is why you have never seen a children's book named "the big red cat". That is also why dogs in general dont like cats. Because the dog is looking out for mankind, and the cat is not anything but selfish and evil. kinda like Catbert.
