Yes. Wesley is a she. Me dad brought her back from his work one night, got her off his co-worker who's cat had a litter. Thought he was bringing a boy cat back with him an' had a name picked for one. But he brought me back the cat we know as Wesley. Am crap at thinking of girly names especially for cats who I name stupidly on principal. I always think cats should have daft names.
Today i got the sad, sad task of burying one of my cats. She was hit by a car yesterday but since i wasn't at home the driver of the car had left a note and put the cat in a box which was something rare, most drivers just leave without saying a word. That cat was the first pet i got when i moved out from my parents and she was a part of my life for 11 years.
That she had hit the cat, her phonenumber and such. She actually came over to talk, my cat had been chased out in the road by another cat and she never had a chance to stop. She also had cats and was almost as sad and heartbroken as i am over it all.
Suddenly I had 14 pounds of furry buzzsaw literally suspended from my hand.
He got his four fangs into my hand all the way to the jaw. Ow.
I got him off and cleaned up my hand with Betadine pretty quickly, then got a ride over to the local emergency clinic. Fortunately, the antiseptic work that I did and the clinic redid along with the course of antibiotics (giant horsepill and ointment) seems to have prevented infection... but I'm likely to have an interesting set of scars.
This is one seriously strong cat. Now if I can only train him to attack door-to-door solicitors and Jehovah's Witnesses....
I am so sorry to hear about Benjamin, Spectre. He was a great cat. He reminded of you in that he was full of character and had a larger than life personality.
I was going to ask if Bobby and Indy had met. It's too bad they don't get along right now; although that may change once Indy is more comfortable with you and his new home. He seems to be a Texas cat - large, and bite first, ask questions later. :lol:
