"High" is never HIGH enough.

Last night I was worried about Blue. When I came home I found he had pulled the comforter off my bed. He never does anything bad while I'm gone, just sleeps on the bed. I HAD given him a knuckle-bone as a treat before I left in the morning and I don't usually do that. As soon as I let him out of the room he ran for the water bowl and drank and drank. I finally stopped him and put him outside. I had visions of "bloat". When I brought him back inside, I noticed that he looked "pink" like his allergies had kicked in again and he wanted to drink more, it was like he couldn't get enough. Phone #'s started spinning in my head. Who to call first? and then he wouldn't EAT! He just went to the sofa and curled up and slept.
I watched him for a while and then went back upstairs to tidy up my room. Under the comforter was a HALF-eaten bag of cat food. I had forgotten that I had placed that bag high up on my desk in my room where the cats couldn't get it. He's fine now. Another lesson learned. High is never high enough.

So true, high is never high enough :-) :-) My old Viran learned me that :-) :-)

Have a great day!

Oh...thank goodness he's ok. Cat food must be salty. I'm sorry I have not written. I will soon or call. I have been out every day and night...working but my hours will slow in January so perhaps I can get back to the things I like to do. Oh...yeah, the money issue...that is always there.

I survived this Christmas and one of my friends surprised me with a huge gift....no not a puppy....I was secretly wishing for one but everyone knows I am gone to much at the moment to get a puppy.

But I did get a really great gift.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day. Mine did not feel one bit like Christmas till this evening.
