Goten

I have this cat, we all know that. His name is Goten. He's a big vicious kitty who's prone to mental fits.

I went over to my parents the other day with huge slashes on my forearms and a couple on my face. "How did you get those?"

"Goten."

"You need to get rid of that cat."

"Who would take him?"

"I don't know, but you need to get rid of that cat."

Well, since I'm not inflicting the cat upon them, why are they so worried about it? It's my problem. So, on the way home we stop to get something to eat. The waitress goes, "What happened to you?"

"My cat attacked me."

"You need to get rid of that cat."

"Do you want him?"

"NO!"

"Do you think I can find a home for a cat that has fits and viciously attacks things and I have to wrap him in a blanket and hold him till he calms down?"

"No."

"So, what do I do with him?"

"I don't know, but you have to get rid of that cat."

Why is it so crazy that I won't give up on Goten? I know, he's "just a cat" but he's a cat I have history with. A cat that started out with a horrid beginning, but thanks to me, has a better life. And even though he's clawed me, bit me, cause me pain, he's also comforted me, amused me, and licked my toes. Despite all the grief, I love him. He's a big shit, but I love him. Todd loves him too. He's the bad boy. And I don't think he wants to be the bad boy, I think something inside him is making him be the bad boy. Like something makes him lose control.

I try to tell people this, but they can't look beyond the gashes, the stitches, the bandaids. And some of these people are honest to God cat lovers. Not nutjobs, real catlovers. And even they try to pursuade me gently to get the cat "put down"

Maybe I should just tell them a child did it.

    I took Jesse for a walk tonight, because he was being a complete and utter pain in the ass about it. Whining and whining, so on and so forth. So,…

  • He's a smart little devil

    Okay leash training Jesse has been interested. If I take him out during daylight he wants to stick right by the house, and sniff along the siding,…

  • Whoa!

    I took Jesse for one last walk a few minutes ago. He's not overly fond of long bouts outside, so I take him for a few small walks every day, rather…
