Ollie lollie

Soooo... Mr. Dementornj...(ya, give you a minute to say that in your head)
Has limited vision in one eye and practically NO vision in the other.
You would think that any normal animal would then compensate
by say:  not trying to jump on things when they have virtually NO depth perception wouldn't you?
Well, you'd be wrong
Lookit my big Ornj Sun!  I lovez him soo much
Well for a few days he was lying in his hammock.  He only lays in there when something is wrong so I gave him three days and the carted him off to the vet.
Dr. Horn's first question to me (while he was perusing Ollie's chart) was 'have you gotten insurance on him yet?'  And I was startled a bit thinking 'how did he know I was getting quotes, man he IS good!"  So I asked?  How did you know?  He said
"Oh I didn't but given is rap sheet is already longer in three years than most cats their whole lives I guessed you proabaly should think about it."
I laughed so loud Ollie startled!
So after watching Ollie gimp around the room he was wisked off for exrays.  No foreign objects (you know like the time he tried to eat wasps...twice.  No broken bones (like the last time I had xrays and $500 worth of blood work to find he was perfectly fine) and nothing untoward to tell Dr. that anything was wrong.  Except that clearly something was. 
Ollie was sent home with Methemizole for three days (over Labor Day weekend) and three days after  that he finally got 'out of hammock(bed) and got up on my bed in his ususal spot. 
All the while yelling at me that he really DID want to go out with Stella and how HORRIBLE I am since he's been couped up for two weeks! 
(I love this photo, the foreshortening makes him look so kittenish. You'd never guess he was 12lbs with a 14" tailio!
I can't trust you IN the house let alone OUTSIDE even where I can SEE you!
 I have gotten rid of one 6ft cat tree and when the kittens are finally gone I will get rid of the second one.  I know he loves to play chase with me and we play hide and seek even, but we'll just have to tone it down I guess.
As of today he's doing much better.
Happy Caturday (soon!)


  1. He sure is a handsome dude.

  2. Poor guy...he must have bonked hisself on something. What an Ornjcompoop!

  3. We're glad he's doing better. He won't let anything slow him down. :)

  4. Oh Ollie you just wanna tear it up like any good boy cat! But buddy you gotta take it easy! You can cause lots of mischief while barely doing anything - just ask Quill.

    Take care buddy,


  5. Glad he's feeling better!

    Puzzled what your vet would use methimazole for short term, as we've only seen it used for thyroid, and then it's over long stretches of time. Learn something new every day when it comes to cats.

  6. I'm so glad to hear he is doing better - you can't keep a good oranj down!

  7. Glad he's doin better!

  8. Holy CAT, Ornj dood! Sounds like they can't turn their back on you (MOL! Way ta GO dood!)


We love to hear from you xoxo!
