Default Help - did I hurt Otis UPDATE

Hi the

Thank you all for your concern. I felt just nauseated after doing that to
Otis.

He appears to be totally completely fine. In fact, the little monster got
up at 3 AM and raced around the house, running over our heads, clawing at
the window screen, and creating his usual scene. I never did get back to
sleep.

I've prodded him all over and there are no spots that seem to cause him
discomfort so I'm going to leave it for a some more time. I'll keep poking
him to make sure that something doesn't develop. He's just so ridiculously
healthy looking and acting that I don't really want to take him into TED.

Thank you all for worrying about him with me!

ACHHHHHHHHHHH! I mixed my verb tenses.

The paragraph should read:
He appears to be totally completely fine. In fact, the little monster got
up at 3 AM and raced around the house, ran over our heads, clawed at
the window screen, and created his usual scene. I never did get back to
sleep.

I'm glad to hear it, but not terribly surprised. Cats are both tough and
resilient.

That's um, great news! Well, that he's feeling better, anyway.

I don't think you have to worry if he's that active. If he'd had any
internal injuries or broken bones it would have been apparent by now.

Hugs,

There's a reason why they say cats have nine lives. They manage to come
out of what would seem like terrible accidents without a scratch. So
glad to hear otis is doing well. Good idea to keep an eye on him though.

Thanks Marina! He actually started purring while I was prodding him and did
the elevator butt thing so I think he's okay. I will keep watching him
though.

I keep thinking about this nine lives things though - he's used up six that
I know about - yikes! I was thinking of Frank and Otis last night when I
was reading The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats. He talks about how quickly
cats go feral when they get lost or leave their homes. I remember you
describing how Frank switched back to housecat after you got the harness on
after he was lost and I remember the look in Otis' eyes when I sweet talked
him after he was lost. It was like something coming back to light from a
distant past.

*really* off this topic, I know.

That's right. It was like something suddenly clicked in Frank's head -
'Hey! Don't I know this person? Hey, this is *my* person!' I'm so happy we
both got our darling boys back.
