the little orange cat

My silly wonderful beautiful cat Sophie got pretty sick this weekend, so I didn't go to Milwaukee to run the half marathon. It sucks. But I got next to no sleep last night, haven't been able to eat anything and have spent the better part of the past day crying out of frustration and fear, so I don't think it would have gone well for me had I tried to compete.

I'm not sure what's wrong with her; she's been in and out of the vet's and will go back this afternoon. It seems likely that she ate something weird and has an intestinal blockage. :(

Thank you guys so much, though, for your encouragement on my last post - I will need to find a new half to run asap.

Apologies for the total lack of entertainment in this post, I am pretty numb and sad.


  1. Very sorry to hear about your poor sick kitty. :-( We once had a cat about 20 years ago that developed/contracted FIV, or maybe FeLV, and we had to have him put to sleep. I hope your kitty makes a full and speedy recovery! B-)

  2. :( Sending get well soon wishes to Sophie...hope she is ok!

  3. I hope your kitty gets better soon.
