My Poor Little Maggie Pi

August 15, 2017

Maggie Pi was gone for eight days.  We didn’t think we would ever see her again.  She finally showed up late at night.  Her ear had been clipped, she had lost a lot of weight and she was coughing and sneezing.  Oh, yeah.  Her tummy was shaved and stapled.  I was very happy to see her, but very upset with what had happened to her.  I also know who did it.  Currently, there is a federally funded project that is neutering feral cats and releasing them where they were found. Now, I know that this is a good thing, but can’t they tell when a cat is not feral?  I guess not.  From my reading, they were only working in city limits.  We live two miles south.  Unfortunately, one of the volunteers lives on my lane.  Why she decided to pick up my Mags is beyond my understanding.  Maggie Pi was so sick when she came home and she had lost 24 ounces, a lot for my little girl.  I had to take her to Dr. Mike the next day for shots and meds to the tune of $75.

Maggie is getting better and gaining some weight.  She spends her day in Sweetums’ lap or in the dirty clothes basket.  She will gladly tell you all the sorted details.

I was so pissed.  Whenever I see the woman I look the other way.  I still want to smack her.

As you can see, she is growing nicely.  It’s very hard to take pictures of her when awake.  She is very active.  It is very hard to believe her leg is broken.  You should see her run when Sweetums clinks the can of cat food.  She loves to pester the other animals, bite toes from under the bed, help sort the clean clothes and rearrange my yarn.

At first, when I pushed and prodded her injured leg, I got no reaction.  Now, she pushes and kicks back.  And she does NOT likes those toes tickled!  She goes outside and manages to climb the deck railing, but doesn’t walk it much.  She loves to bring in acorns and leaves and crickets and even a cicada to play with.  She is absolutely the worse color and has been stepped on a few times.  I can’t wait for Dr. Mike to see her and the progress she has made.
