But man, I still think those cats are crazy

After spending almost 2 full weeks without Gwen, I just couldn't do it anymore.  I need life around me, and my plants just don't cut it.  So, Boyfriend and I headed to the Vet's office last Friday, and let 2 little boys adopt us.

We let them wander the apartment, interact and play a bit before we named them.  We're silly, so we decided to name them, and any future pets, after dead rockstars.  Anywho....

Here's Sid Vicious and Jerry Garcia napping in Daddy's lap:

Sid's the mildly insane and slightly psychotic silver/grey one, and Jerry's the mellow orange guy.  Jerry ALWAYS looks like he either just woke up, or just smoked a fatty, so...yeah.  Sid, on the other hand, is quite the character.  If he were a human child, I'm pretty sure the Board of Ed would push to have him on Ritalin.

We've had them a week today, and unfortunately, Jerry started getting sick Wednesday night.  I brought them both to the Vet yesterday morning, Sid's doing just fine, but Jerry was diagnosed with an infection.  He gave me antibiotics for him at home, gave him a shot while we were there, and were told to bring him back for another shot this morning.  Poor JerryBear was in even worse shape this morning, and has to stay at the Vet's for a while.  He thinks Jerry may have been harboring a case of feline distemper (parvovirus) before his vaccination on Friday, as the timing would be right for him to get sick from it if that were the case, and he seems to be showing a number of typical symptoms.  *Fingers crossed* our little guy will pull through.

In the meantime, Sid is napping happily in my lap, and every so often, wakes up to try to help me type.

Ugh, after DAYS of deliberation, her name is finally Cassie.  NOT big fat Mama Cass Elliot, Cassie Gaines, from Lynard Skynard...

I finally got a good shot of her giant lemur eyes.  She still needs a name...

So, this is Sid's new girlfriend.  She's a little young, only 4 1/2 weeks old, but you know how rockstars are....  She doesn't have a name yet, we're working on it...there aren't a lot of dead female rockstars, and let's be honest, she's far too pretty to be Janis...

Poor little man.  :(   I'm sad for you and Sid.  You sure are made of tough stuff. 

 

Poor lil guy. Sorry to hear.

deeply sorry to learn about JG.

Sadly, Jerry didn't make it through the night.  I'm sad, and Sid's confused.  Sid's a little too hyper to be left home alone, so I think we're going to adopt him a friend after we get back from visiting Dad this morning.

I think the stoned look is because he has very light eyes, pale green, almost blue, so it gives him that glazed eyes look.  I just got off the phone with Dr. Tony, and he said Jerry's doing a little bit better, but he's not optimistic at this point.  *sigh*  Sid keeps looking for him, and meowing at me in his baby voice.

right on! love the names; and before i scrolled past the pics to see who is who, i totally pegged the orange cat as jerry. it just fits! with that said, old rockers seem to have 9-lives. a little downtime for jerry now, but a long life of ahead of him.

happy to learn sid is doing fine.
