It all started when I heard a voice coming from My Outdoor Domain saying, “Leader Otis? Are you in there? I need help!” I made my way outside where I found Mama Cat sitting just outside the wire.
I asked Mama Cat what was wrong. As she looked up at Me, I could see it immediately. She said, “It’s my eye, Leader Otis. It hurts!”
I was alarmed by the look of Mama’s eye. I shouted out, “Brothers! Get out here! Mama Cat is in trouble!” Brothers Henry and Oliver came running, and when they saw Mama Cat, they too were instantly concerned. She was rubbing her eye with her paw because it was bothering her so much. I had to look away.
Brother Henry asked Mama to come over onto the chair in the Mama Snuggle Shack 3000 so he could see her better. He inspected her and then said, “Guys… we need the Guardians. We can’t handle this alone.”
The Brothers and I started yowling our heads off, and the Guardians came running to see what was the matter. When they saw Mama Cat they grew very concerned. They picked her up and inspected her eye closely. One of them carried her over to her guardian’s house and knocked on both the front and back doors. There was no answer. They monitored Mama closely for the next day and continued to try to contact her guardian. This morning Mama’s eye looked more swollen, so the Guardians decided enough was enough. Mama needed veterinary care. Her guardian was clearly not going to provide it, so it was up to the Guardians of Otis. They scooped Mama up in a carrier to take her to The Bad Place.
We were all very excited that Mama was going to get the care she needed. Well… all of us except Brother Oliver. The Guardians put him in a carrier to go the The Bad Place as well. Apparently he has something called “ack-knee” that they are concerned about. I don’t know what that is, but it sounds like something you get from acking up a hairball on your knee.
So both kitties are at The Bad Place right now. I know they are scared, but hopefully they are getting the help they need to feel better. Hopefully I will have some good news on them to share tomorrow.
So Sayeth Otis
