“FOILED AGAIN” I exclaim as I multiply two binomials
BAHAHA. I approve.
Last Sunday night, my youngest sister noticed there was something wrong with one of my family’s cats. His name is Eightball. She told me he was meowing oddly. So I went upstairs to investigate and found him lying in the doorway to my sisters’ bedroom. He meowed at me. It sounded, to me, like it usually does. So I petted him a bit. He seemed fine at the time.
During the last six days it became increasingly obvious that something was wrong with him. He began losing weight quickly and instead of being upstairs like he usually is, he began to stay downstairs. He became too weak to climb the stairs. At first I thought, “It’s okay. He’ll be okay. It’s probably what Peanut had recently. We can take him to the vet and get him some medicine for it. Then he’ll get better. Just like Peanut did.”
We took him to the vet today to have them look at him. They discovered he’s got some sort of growth in his throat. It’s preventing him from eating, or at least making it very difficult and very painful to do so. The surgery to remove it will cost $500. It’s $500 we don’t have and they don’t know if it can even be removed.
There’s nothing I can do to help him.
And I can’t stop crying. Every time I think I’m done, I start again.
I wish I could do something.
Eightball has been with my family his entire life. Ten years. It’s not going to be the same without him. At all. I don’t want him to go, but I don’t want him to suffer, either.
If you weren’t in the Avatar fandom you don’t even know what shipping wars are
the things i’ve seen man
THE THINGS I’VE SEEN
I HAVE BATTLE SCARS
I HAVE A ZUTARA SHAPED TATTOO ON MY HEART
I HAVE NAVY BUDDIES FROM THOSE DAMN SHIP WARS
We straddled along in our driftwood canoes while we watched all hell unfold before us.
And ohh… who could forget the battle of the Zutara Caves and the bombing of the Day Of Black Sun Kiss? Those are days I don’t want to remember.
Why? Why did you have to remind me?
My tiny little island in the middle of the Great Shipping Sea is still recovering from the crossfire………
I… I’ll be over there for awhile.
I need to be alone…
