Worried...


This is my sweet cat, Tiger. I am worried about him tonight. He started acting strangely today, and I think he must be sick. At first we noticed him sitting in a strange, hunched over position. Then he withdrew from us and began hiding under furniture. He didn't participate in any of his usual activities, like jumping on the window sill when we opened a window. I will call the vet first thing in the morning. I don't know how we will catch him to put him into a carrier; although he is very sociable he has never allowed either of us to pick him up. I've been reading on the Internet; many suggestions say to throw a towel over him, wrap him in it, and place him, towel and all into the carrier. Well, we will see tomorrow. I just hope he is okay.

**Update on Monday: Tiger seems fine today, is eating and acting like himself again. I'm not as worried, but I am
still going to talk to the vet and see if they want to see him. I know some of my readers are
animal lovers and didn't want to worry you.

Hope you'll keep us posted, and that it isn't anything serious. And good luck with the catching!

Poor Tiger! I'm glad he's feeling better. Word verification: trial.

I meant "he" of course. My husband distracted me as I was typing.
