I don't think my laptop is charging, stupid Bentley's. Yes, I'm at Bentley's because I won't have internet until tomorrow. I have two more interested parties in the apartment, so that's good.

I had to make a horrible decision yesterday and carry it out today. I took Vaash to the Southern Arizona Humane Society.

I was reassured that he would stay until he was adopted and remained healthy and friendly. I'm sure he can do the friendly part, but I worry about his health. He's been losing weight and has begun ripping out chunks of his hair. If he is sick, I hope it's a treatable illness. If it's not, I'm going to request that they wait to euthanize him until I can be with him. I can't not be there for him at the end.

If he's treatable and healthy and well, then I'll pay the adoption fee for my neighbor. She decided to take him in, but if he was sick she wouldn't be able to, because she can't afford another vet bill. I completely understand. It just occurred to me that I don't even know her name.

Anyways, I cried like a lunatic after I left him at the shelter. I pulled over and just cried. I also broke down at work today, too. The guys kind of avoided me for a while after they saw that I had really red eyes that were a little swollen. Guys really hate that shit, don't they?

I'm doing much better right now knowing that he won't be put down in some fixed set of time. On the bright side, at least now I know that Vera likes to be the only cat in my life. I won't get another one until she's gone. If I even bother with getting another one. Although, I know I will. There are too many cats out there that need good homes. And I'd spoil them rotten. On the even brighter side, I can switch back to the cheaper food that I had been buying for her. (The outlet wasn't working, by the way, I just had to move to a new table).

I am looking at a horrible "painting" at Bentley's right now. It's just blue canvas with white paint thrown on it. The white paint is cracking. Seriously, it's terrible. I wonder how much they want for it. I would say anything over $5 would be too much. But, I'm not in a great mood either, so that could be tainting my observations.

People are doing either algebra or geometry in front of me. Exponents and graphing. I don't miss math at ALL. I like to think I do, but i really really don't.

I'm rambling. I'm going to go eat meat and fried foods and drink beer now. Then I'm going to go home and shower and crash. Tomorrow I can do more unpacking and hanging of pictures. And figuring out where to put my shelf for more stuff that I own.

I was going to commiserate with you on the new neighbor thing, but this is so sad. I'm really sorry. It must be very difficult. I hope it all goes well and Vaash finds a good home.

It sounds like you made the best possible choice for Vaash.
I'm sure I'd be a weeping mess too if it was one of my kitties.

I'm so sorry about Vaash. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he's a-ok health wise and that he's gonna find a cool home -- just as cool as yours!

*hugs and smooches*

I think dudes just hate not knowing what the crying is about. Like, if it's crying about something like having a bad self-esteem day, then dudes get uncomfortable ('cept me, cause I have them all the time), but if it's something like the Vaash situation, you can count on sympathy.
As a fellow animal lover, You'd get a Bear Hug from me.

See, "Bear" Hug, animal lover, see...word play.

I got your message; I left work a little early because of a migraine, so I wasn't around for the call or for the drink with you and Char.

You know, I can't help but think that it would've been easier for your neighbor to just say, "I'll take him, but can you take him to the vet first?" than to go through this whole rigamorale of giving him up to the Humane Society and then re-adopting him. :\

In any case, I'm glad this is how it turned out. I'm sure it's something parasitic or something. I started looking for possible diagnoses for Vaash, and came across this really inadvertantly ridiculous ad for ebay:

(Hoping it makes you smile at least... Hang in there.)

The ability to get a sick cat on ebay makes me love the internet even more.

To leave a friend is a terrible thing. I don't think that he blames you though. They understand more than we'd know, I believe. It was a necessery choice probably and go ahead and cry about it and feel miserable. After that you'll know it's all good.
