CATS ON TUESDAYArthur last week wasn't in a very good mood. He still housed in my wardrobe and only came out to visit his food bowl. He didn't play with Rosie and when I petted him on the back he hissed. Mr. Gattino then noticed that Arthur was always washing the end of his tail, so he took a closer look. Arthur's tail end had a big hairless spot ! Had this diabolic black cat bitten him again ?
We decided : Arthur had to go to the Vet ! And that is what we did. The vet checked him from top to bottom and Arthur didn't agree at all, he showed himself on a quite unusual side, he growled and hissed and struggled on the table. He even tried to bite the poor vet. The diagnosis was : Arthur had an ulcer ! That's why he was so aggressiv ! He got a shot and we went home.
The first thing he did, he moved out of the wardrobe and choose another napping place
He found a very nice one on Mr. Gattino's desk. First he hid there and we couldn't find him but then after a day or two he lay in all his length on the desk ! He was back to his old self. He started to play with Rosie again and didn't hiss when I touched his back. Poor Arthur must have had aches and now they were gone.
He moved again and now he shares Mr. Gattino's bed with Pookie.
And this morning when he went to the kitchen to satisfy his stomac, there was a visitor ! Arthur didn't move so it must have been a friend.
I had never seen this cat before, she wasn't shy at all and quite cute. I suppose she belongs to one of these new houses which had been built behind our garden.
Arthur's tail end is much better and starts to heal !
