RIP Cami, the Ninja cat with super powers.
Well tonite was a sad night. My Kids found Cami in the backyard, back legs not working & swelled, & injured in the rear. Appeared she was hit by a car. X-rays showed she was broken a lot (spine, hips) so I got to sit with her a few minutes before it was nite nite time & after for a while, very hard leaving....
This cat, was the scrapiest, weirdest, funniest cat we ever had. She would cuddle with you, fight with you, shadow box, shaaaadow dance, killed every screen in the windows in the house, (cause she needed 20 ways in & out), play ping pong for an hour with any mouse that dared enter our house, she was in the middle of whatever I was working on in garage, she jumped into any car that pulled in the driveway when the door opened, under the hood if the hood opened.....she had many talents, & Mad Ninja skills. I think a Female Ninja gang & Chuch Norris must have been this cats Parents. It was almost impossible watching her lay on the table drugged, it just was so weird, this was crazy, dance like a butterfly sting like a bee Cami, how it it possible this happened?
In one last gallant effort, she did manage however, as my Daughter is cuddling her wrapped in a Sponge Bob towel in the car , to totally freak out & leave 4 full punture wounds on her wrist next to the main vein, & in the tendons & other useful stuff in there thats needed, then dart with her front legs between the pedals, my feet & the floor. Well, that was a nerve racking few minutes, Bepie going, "wow this hurts a lot & is going numb", & trying to figure out how to get cat from her new position to back seat without getting mauled myself..
So I made an about face, handed Bethany off to the Mama to go to the ER they both love so, then I turned my sites back on Angel - Satin cat. I was so hoping she would not try to crawl to me while on the 25 min drive. She just layed still though making quite little sounds. Of course after seeing the X-Rays I totally get why Cami was a tad fussy.
We will miss you Cami. I am sure youre in total control where ever you are now. Kiss-kiss.
