I gotta new kitty!

The saga continues....

Well, Bluestreak is settling in nicely.  He went to Operation Pet on Tuesday, a clinic that neuters and gives shots for cheaper prices than a regular vet (if your income is low enough to qualify, which mine is). 
I them that I thought he had a broken tail, as there was a lump about 2 inches from the base, and he wasn't holding it up like cats do - it was just dragging on the ground.  Come to find out, he had a bite.  The clinic cleaned it out and gave me antibiotics for him.  I am guessing that he was bit when he got chased up the first tree.  Hopefully it wasn't by a rabid raccoon (I don't think so, the clinic said he would have been displaying symptoms by Tuesday), but I think another big cat I see around here chased him up the tree and bit his tail.  Poor kitty. 

So, he came home Tuesday night and I put him into the basement bathroom.  He's been cooped up there recooperating.  He wants to get out (meow, meow, meow) and Ratchet wants to get in.  Bluestreak wasn't too happy with Ratchet sticking his paws under the door, but he seems to be getting used to it.  Today, Sunday, I let Blue out to explore the basement, while Ratchet was locked upstairs.  He hung around the top step, where Ratchet was lying on the kitchen floor, looking under the door sticking his arm through to try to play.  Bluestreak also met Harley, the dog, and didn't seem too concerned.  Maybe another week of separation, and we'll see how the three animals cope getting the run of the house. 

Well, I'm on my way to becoming 'that crazy old cat lady.'

Thank you, they are pretty cute, if I may brag a bit.
I can't wait 'til things settle down.

Ah, that shows you that I didn't read the site's profile.
