Sorry, Can’t Talk, I’m Staring At My Cat

Stewie's sick, y'all.

Stewie's sick and I have to wait another hour to bring him to the vet and I am FREAKING OUT, so I'm writing. It's the only thing I can think to do. Okay, let me back this up.

We all know that Stewie is a very weird ass cat. Weird. Full of weirdness. So when he started acting a little lazier than usual, I didn't think much of it. When he started losing weight, I thought "Bingo, that diet thing is working!" and didn't worry.

I'm worried. 

He's lost SO much weight. And all he does is lie there, looking at me. My baby is telling me something is wrong, and I don't even know how long this has been going on, since I LOST last week due to the Zyprexa debacle, and when I said on this very blog that I was worried about him, everyone said that cats are lazy and not to worry. I'm not blaming anyone else here, I should have known. I should have known days ago. 

So I sit here, staring at my cat, waiting for 10:00 to GET HERE so I can take him to Dr. K, who I STALKED on Skype last night begging her to call me, as I panicked my brains out of my head that something terrible was about to happen. That something terrible had ALREADY happened, and I missed it, because I am the worst cat mother in the entirety of the universe. 

I realize that some of you have actual human children and might roll your eyes at this, but this is my baby boy, my special little guy. This is STEWIE, for god's sake, and there's something very wrong with him. And there's nothing I can do except wait for 10:00. One more hour. 

Please, please, let my cat be okay. I'm sorry for anything I've done, punish me, not my Stewie. 

Not my Stewie.

  1. I’ve been a lurker here for a few months now, but I just had to leave a comment and tell you that I hope that Stewie will be ok.
    I have three children, one of whom has been seriously ill, enough so that he’s had to be hospitalized twice now.
    I also have two dogs, one of which had a very bad bout of Kennel Cough.
    I tell you this so that you know when I say there is no difference in the level of concern for someone you love, whether it be a cat or a child. Never let anyone tell you that you’re love for Stewie is in some way less than their love for a child. I whole heartedly disagree.

  2. I know just how you feel. My cat Himmies is my world too. Him and me and my apartment and MY fainting couch.
    I couldn’t sleep for two days last time I thought he was sick.
    I’m sure it will be fine though. All us beans are thinking positive for Stewie.

  3. Please let us know ASAP about Mr Stewie. BTW, I have 6 pets and 2 kids and I don’t think your being silly at all, their all my kids

  4. Hugs to you and Stewie from me, purrs to the both of you from SarahCat, Donovan, and Mr. Boots. Mr. Boots also says take a deep breath, and wash. That is his solution for everything.

  5. I have two human children and two canine children. I understand.
    Hope Stewie is ok. Virtual hugs from a stranger who reads your blog and loves your writing.

  6. Seriously, pets and kids are pretty much equivalent when it comes to love. The only times I have ever cried and snotted in public as an adult have been over the deaths or serious injuries of my pets.
    Give Stewie a big hug for me!
