I have never been so happy to see cat pee in all my life.

It was almost to the point where I would have been ecstatic to have him pee on ME, just to know that he's peeing.

Gau went back in to the vet this morning. He has not been peeing since the surgery - it's not a physical problem, so the vets believe he's too afraid to pee due to pain and burning sensations. He went under sedation today and was catheterized again.

Hopefully he will get over this within the next 40 hours or so, as I'm supposed to be going out of town this weekend starting very early Friday morning. I have a cat sitter coming, but I can't expect that she'll take him to the vet (on a weekend no less) to get his pee drained.

Gau has returned, and is in high spirits (perhaps due to his painkillers). He's got to go in tomorrow morning again to get an IV shunt removed, and possibly get another catheter if he doesn't pee here at home tonight.

His entire butt is shaved - like a reverse poodle. There's basically just a large bloody stitch going from his anus to his lower belly, and everything that was there is gone. He used to have a furry little sack, but all his junk has now been taken away. That bit was a little unexpected, I thought he'd at least get to keep that; now all his genetic material is gone. Cloning will be the only option for more Gaus!!

He was laying on me earlier, purring happily, so I guess my fears of him changing personality were unfounded. Now he just needs to recover, and all will be well.

Also, the bill came out to be half what I was expecting, so that's a little bit of good news too.

I had some great company this weekend. Treyvana and boy came to visit, and we had a merry time. I feel that I could have been a bit more entertaining, but I found myself doing a lot of house related things like laundry and keeping the place generally tidy. We spent a lot of the time petting the cat and doing TV related activities, though we did go out to dinner Saturday night.

I did a fair amount of excellent cooking though (if I may say so). I finally bought the waffle iron I wanted, and used my homemade baking mix to make a dozen tasty, crispy Belgians on Saturday. Today I fired up the oven and quick cooked a skirt steak on my cast iron pan - turned it into three huge, delicious steak and onion quesadillas.

I think that I'm going to end up running a bed and breakfast some day. There's nothing I love more than having company and cooking for them.

I wrapped up my weekend by going to see Brokeback Mountain with Becca. Yes, I cried. There's nothing to my mind more tragic than not taking the chance. If you can see the path to happiness, and you have the ability to take that path, don't stop yourself from going down it. Regret what you have done, not what you haven't.

Gau is asleep on top of the couch, and he's dreaming... his feet are twitching and tapping on my shoulder.

So cute!!

Kitty pets me with his paws and likes to jump on my chest and throw his arms around me and give me hugs. He is sneezing less, and he loves my bed. He is trying to scratch my stereo speakers, I think because another cat once did a long time ago.

It's been a while since I've had to take care of a cat; I had forgotten how quickly litter boxes fill up. But then again, in the immortal words of my dad: "Two cats shit twice as much."
