We originally planned on hiking the Mt. Holdsworth Jumbo circuit today, but had to cancel those plans to take care of the cat we’re pet sitting. Last night, she got in a vicious fight with another neighborhood cat and lost a lot of blood. It was terrifying to see her after the fight. She was completely shocked. Thankfully, she quickly stopped bleeding, and on recommendation of the owner’s daughter, we monitored her closely, instead of taking her directly to the vet. We spent most of the night checking to see if she was okay. The day before, the mischievous fox terrier jumped onto the kitchen table and helped herself to a bar of chocolate. Fortunately, she threw it up after a few hours. Kati and I really want our own pets someday and this has given us another glimpse into what ownership looks like. It’s not all cuddles and kisses. Please send your healing thoughts to our special kitty.
