And on a slightly happier note!

Ok, so that last one wasn't a pleasant kind of story - just be thankful I didn't describe the debridement process in any detai... A veritible ewey, gooey, bloody scene that was... How about a nice, warm, fuzzy one for a change?

You know about chester right? My furry little, hateful, spawn of satan, cat? Cat owners the world over will doubtless understand...

I didn't so much own Chester as much as he owned us. I'm serious here... That deviant little hairball could not possibly have been a greater pain in my ass if he tried!

Don't believe me? uh-huh... OK, try this one on for size won't you...

Chester was an indoor cat. He'd been fixed and declawed as a kitten and being relatively defenseless, was kept under very strict supervision on those rare occasions he was allowed to roam outdoors.

Now, Chester didn't appreciate the fact that he couldn't use a paw-installed set of cutlery... And certainly expressed a high degree of distain for our wish that he remain indoors. As such, young Chester would rocket propel his fuzzy mass out any convenient opening whenever the opportunity presented itself.

At least once a week, I'd have a screeching daughter exclaim that Chester had escaped - again - and the ensuing search party was no doubt regarded, secretly, from one of Chesters many hidey-holes.

So off we'd go, the family and I, beating the brush and searching for the little bastard. See the thing was, you couldn't just go searching any spot once. That sneak would skulk from one hiding place to the the one you'd just searched with ghost-like stealth.

I can't even begin to count how many times I or the kids had stumbled into a patch of poison ivy or a nest of hornets...

Eventually though, no doubt when the hilarity of watching his humans stumble, fumble, swat and scratch had lost it's allure, Chester would coyly show himself, bearing a "oh, were you looking for me?" look.

He'd submit to being carried back home and the inevitable hugging and petting he'd suffer over the following hours.

Chester looks so soft and cuddly! I recently adopted a homeless cat that hung around my deck....I called her kitten but mine is softer and she has little teeth.

Morning CaressMe - Unfortunately - for Chester, not necessarily me - he was taken by coyote (we think) shortly after we'd come to California. That or he finally got sick of his humans and decided to strike out on his own for a change.

Looks are deceiving bella! That was his "closer, closer... just a little closer..." *Pounce! Bite - Chew - Hiss and Growl* look. or... his "NOOO! I didn't just pee on your cable internet connection!" look... take your pick
