Doc., you were introduced to my cat Rowdy over in the Ramblings section of the BOC, but I need some more help. I did what the better 3/4's told me not to do. Last night I slipped Rowdy into the back bedroom so she could spent the night under the bed where she had been sleeping for the past several nights while the boss was away. Well, last night when the boss came to bed, she said, you let Rowdy in and I said yes. I got up at 3:30 AM and Rowdy was sound asleep under the bed so I did not disturb her, but she woke up at 5:30 AM and did her sound to go out and woke the boss up. Right off, you know that ain't good. Mid morning today, the boss came up with another excuse why Rowdy should not be in the house, especially under the bed, her alleged dieing grounds. She informed me that Rowdy can transfer disease to our house dogs and that Rowdy has not been to the Vet. since 1998 and thus, has not had certain shots, whatever they are. What do you think Doc. about the transferring of diseases, from a cat to a dog or dogs? You don't have to step lightly on this issue, after all, it is just cyber stuff. Personally, I think it has more to do with menopause than the alleged issue(s). If I was not strong willed, I would take back up the suds until this is all over. PS, please don't reprimand me for not taking Rowdy to the Vet., she just don't like them.
