No news

 So...no results for Tim yet. 

(I need patience...and quickly.)

Houdi went into hiding again for most of the afternoon. I was quite worried. He suddenly reappeared. He does not seem uncomfortable but he wants to be held. If I get up to do something, he follows, meowing quietly until he is  being held again. 


I enjoy cuddling a cat but this is not normal behavior for him. On the other hand, he does not act sick. Just slower than usual. 

No news is good news, they say.

  1. Have you taken Houdini to the vet, yet? He may be suffering from something that is easily treatable.

    1. Yes. At this point he does need to see a vet.

  2. Maybe he is hurting some place and trying to tell you or ask for help. He knows you are his best friend.

    1. He doesn't act like he is in pain at all. Just moving slowly and a quieter meow than I am used to. He's able to jump on the couch now. He does like to snuggle, but he's starting to ask to go out, and I won't let him. I think that's going to be a bit of a battle.

  3. Waiting for results from hospitals can be a lengthy and trying time. Then they send you a load of figures which you can't understand and which often make you worry unnecessarily. Hope that Houdi brightens up soon.

  4. Indeed no news is good news on the Houdi front.

  5. Hopefully the vet can find out what is wrong with Houdi and put it right.

  6. Sounds like somethings frightened Houdini.

    1. I think it is a wild creature's nature to hide when they don't feel well.

  7. Double whammy of worry for you - lots of gentle hugs for all of you across the weekend.

    1. We will patiently wait. Gentle hugs to you as well. You have an awful lot on your plate as well.

  9. One of the first things I thought about this morning was to wonder how Houdini was doing.

    1. Amazingly, he is quiet and sleeping next to me right now.

  10. Would Houdi tolerate a halter or leash so you could go outside with him and not have him wander off?
    I also suggest a visit to the Vet. I know they are expensive, but would be worth knowing what's going on with the cat.

    1. It is not the expense. I cannot imagine that cat allowing himself to be walked.

  11. Waiting is the hardest part. I sure hope you hear about Tim soon.

    1. That will be such a relief to know one way or the other.

  12. I came here 1st this morning to find out how Houdini is doing. Somewhat encouraging news, perhaps a trip to the vet is warranted. I hope you get Tim's results soon and they are good.

    1. He will be seeing the vet. He still seems to be doing okay.

  13. Well, it's good that he doesn't act sick or uncomfortable. Would it make sense to take him to a vet, or would that be traumatic for him?

    1. It will be traumatic. He is going to have to deal with it.

  14. I cannot understand deliberate cruelty to any animal but antifreeze FFS?
    I hope Houdini recovers and Tim gets good results.
    Just thinking ... could Houdini have been kicked by someone? My aunt had a cat that was kicked and was obviously very tender for a while.

    1. I honestly cannot imagine Houdi getting close enough to anyone to be kicked. He is a very wary cat. It took forever for me to make up to him.

      Delete
  15. I hope he continues to improve and the vet finds nothing badly wrong with him.

I'm glad you're here!

IKEA and things that go bump in the night

 It is a clear sunny day today.  Houdi continues to mend well, and he is still outraged by the fact that he is being kept inside.  Tim's...
