Scatophobia.

I finally fixed my comments problem..yay! Me smart! Now people can comment normally. Well, I did witness one crazy fight and one arrest tonight, but other than that I just froze outside today. I would like winter a fuck of a lot more if it felt more like summer. I have posted three lovely photos of my psychotic mexican cat whom I suspect might need kitty prozac. I got this feline in Tulum, Mexico where John and I were snorkeling and staying in a little hut. He was begging scraps from the tables of an outdoor restaurant and I, crazy cat lady that I am, began feeding him. I bought him cans and cans of cat food and I assumed he was a few weeks old because he was so thin and small. He really was scared and feral but he would kinda sit by me after he ate though he wouldn't let me touch him. Sucker that I am I freaked out the morning we left and talked John into letting me try and trap him and take him home with us. John grabbed him at the restaurant and the cats bowels let go and doody just SPRAYED everywhere..That was pretty charming and I knew I had to have him! We got him shots there at like 6 in the morning and papers and put him in a duffel bag after heavily sedating him..Turns out he was 5 months old. And now it's seven years later and this little freak of a cat I call Delgado will only let me touch him. He has lived with John and I this long, but John still scares the shit out of him! He is like my little boyfriend..He sleeps with his paws around me and cries at the door when I'm not home...This is really sweet but have I mentioned that he is completely nuts? He is obsessed with his own feces. He uses the litter box, then jumps out of it, looks at his own poop, and flips out. All his hair stands on end and he races around the apartment bouncing off the walls. Then he spies the same damn smudge on the wall that's been there 10 years and starts going mental on it. Oh-and did I mention that he freaking ATE all of his teeth? Yeah, his gums are bad so his teeth began falling out and he just swallowed them all. Now he just has fangs left. And he's really fat. And my other cat Harlequinn hates him so much that she has irritable bowel syndrome? And the last time I took him to the vet he escaped and hid for an hour and they had to trap him in a giant net? Don't get me wrong...I love him to death..I even made a myspace for him myspace.com/delgadocat. But he really is nuts, And he stands on my boobs every morning to wake me up. And right now he is eyeing the litter box like he plans on making some awfully stinky cat cookies in it, and then possibly act like a lunatic. Sigh.

  1. Cool!! Cats rule.

    Back on July 5, 2007, I found my Misty living in the subway tunnels.

    He was just sitting there on the platform, as if waiting for a passing train to pick him up at 181st station on the IRT. A crackhead was taking care of him -- he (the cat) was covered in soot from head to toe and looked like a skeleton.

    The skel asked for five bucks - and the cat was mine ("yo! I sold the cat for fi' bucks!" he yelled to a compatriot across the tracks). On my own, I was faced with the problem of how to get him home. I gave him a little can of food. The cat allowed me to touch him and he would follow me, every time a train would enter the station, he would scurry back into the tunnel.

    Then when the train left he would come back out to me and the little can of cheap cat food.

    Halfway down the platform, he darted into a train - and I followed him in. We ended up riding a train to 242nd Street in the Bronx - with him sitting on my lap, claws digging into my jeans & skin.

    My then boyfriend met me with a borrowed cat carrier. The rest is history. God bless these little furry guys and the people who take care of them. Living on the street is no place for them.

  2. Aww..Yes, I know I will end up with 30 cats by the time I'm fifty.
    If I ever get rich the first thing I'm doing is opening a cat rescue farm somewhere in the country.
