That's some hairball

“Time spent with cats is never wasted.” — Sigmund Freud

I KNOW I've used this quote before, but there is none more perfect.

Many of you were kind enough to be concerned about our, Miss Shiva, as she (and we) battled a mysterious illness. The happy news is that she continues to do well. We're thrilled, although I remain cautious. We've gotten her up to past eight pounds, but I won't rest easy until she's at least 8 pounds, six ounces.

Below are a few more pictures of the Divine Miss S, but a word of warning: there is a picture at the bottom (I'm giving you a heads-up so you can see the rest and avoid the last one) of a ginormous hairball from Shiva

It is NOT what was making her ill. She hacked this up about three years ago, but from looking at it — if you can stand to — you can see why our first guess when got sick was that she had a hairball. (BTW: She had never had one like that before and has not since, thank goodness, although she is hairball prone. The vet said that some cats just are, but we're now giving her anti-hairball medicine to be on the safe side.)

Shye, Boy Boy and Shiva.

This is it. I had to put my ruler down as proof.

  1. I'm so glad she's doing better. It's awful when a loved one is worse and especially so when they can't tell you what hurts exactly. All the love and dedication you and Paul provided seems to have worked. May she flourish for a long and healthy life.
