Guest Blogger: Whistle Interviews Andy

Whistle: Andy, I'm interviewing you for the blog.
Andy: Blog Smog! Shut-up!!!
W: Andy, Mom said you had to be nice to me.
A: Be Quiet!
W: You are in the confinement pen in Mom's Study. Can you tell us why?
A: Big hole in my gut. Had surgery, emergency surgery, on Monday.
W: How's it going?
A: Hate it! I'm an outdoor cat. Can't stand being confined.
W: You have a litter box in there.
A: Don't talk about that! Litter boxes are for prissy little indoor cats! I haven't used one before.
W: Is that why you didn't use it for almost two days? We saw you with your back legs crossed...
A: Do Not Write About This!
W: OK.
A: And don't put a sappy picture up either!
W: OK, I won't. How long do you have to stay in the confinement pen?
A: Doc says two weeks. I say until I break out of here.
W: You have stitches and an e-collar. Just like Fish did.
A: Stitches come out today. I pulled off the e-collar. Do not tell!
W: I won't tell. Andy, you are a Katrina Survivor, aren't you?
A: Yeah, I came back with the Casserole Men three days after the Storm. They needed me. I rode in the rental truck with water, ice, food, chain saws and generators. I kept watch over the home while they helped people. Trees were down everywhere! I walked on trees instead of climbing. I had to eat what they put down for me except for a few squirrels and some birds I caught. I felt badly about eating the yard animals, no sport in it. The animals were dazed and sick. That Storm about killed us all. You were less than a week old then. You don't know anything about hurricanes!
W: OK. Mom says you picked out us as a family...
A: Not you or your brother! I found this house several years ago. I became the apprentice to Rusty the Great Cat. He taught me everything I know.
W: He's the cat Mama talks about and then gets all wet eyed about?
A: Yeah, She loved him and he loved her. He was Great.
W: She loves all of us. We love Sister our Nanny and you.
A: Stop it! My pain meds are wearing off! I'm not talking anymore to you!
W: OK.

Oh my goodness Cass - you may also qualify as a Vet tech by the end of the year!!

Whistle - thanks for sharing Andy's story with us -

It's times like these that I want to add the vet bills into the medical deduction on my income taxes.

But, that would be less than honest and would be cheating the Federal Government.

Oh Wait, that would be the Federal Government that didn't bring food or water to us for 4 days after Katrina.

Hope you and the cat are feeling better.

I hope that he is feeling better.

Have you ever thought about writing a book?

Whistle is not as sassy as Fish is he?

I love old honrey cats.

Whistle, you're an excellent interviewer. Please thank Andy again for his participation.

Sue said...

Aw, poor Andy!!!! I hope he's feeling better soon and that the confinement pen is soon empty for a long time.

Songbird said...

That sounds just like my friend, Andy! Hope he gets loose again soon.

The Vet tech removed most of Andy's stitches and his two drains. He will return in one week to remove the remaining stitches. He does not have to wear the e-collar. He must stay in the confinement pen.

He is teaching the little cats bad words...

Great interview Whistle. So sorry, poor Andy. He is having it rough.
I have used soem bad words to. Did you see what Mom brought into MY House!?!
It is jsut awful. He squeaks instead of meows, he can't get into the big potty, so he has a little baby potty and he bites my tail.
Mom says he is my little brother, but I shall call him IT (intensifying torture). IT is playing with my old toys. I know I haven't played with them much, but they are mine. I am KING afterall!
In solitude,
