My Isis is not well

I just called groomer - couldn't stand it anymore, Isis is not moving hardly at all and will not let me touch her.

Well I told the person answering the phone (groomer's mother) she got upset and said the stomach being shaved is a "sanitary cut" and that they groom a lot of cats and always have.  I said the shaved stomach was unacceptable as I didn't ask for that, I had asked for a trim around the genitalia only - she replied with groomer yelling in the background that it is standard to do that on cats, that the groomer would have to call me back to explain it as she had dogs to deliver right now, so I told them I showed photos of the mess on Isis' stomach to other groomers for their opinion, and was told that was not very nice of me at all to compare groomers like that.  Then she started to yell at me about how it is a standard cut etc..... I never even got to the nails or the fact that Isis is not acting normal.... I told them I would not have a yelling match with them and hung up on them.

So I went to check Isis' litter box, has not been used since during last night, no food was eaten today, and she did drink water from the bathtub faucet (her favorite thing).  The silence from Isis is deafening.

I just called the vet, and have an appt tomorrow morning - nothing is open for tonight (I think vet has gone home) I told assistant the whole sad story and she agreed something is not right, that Isis should have bounded back by now therefore is severely stressed out, said maybe they were rough with her, and with her paws hurting, best she be seen by vet....so 10:30 tomorrow morning I take her in to be checked.  She also asked me who the groomer is.

I am truly thankful I did not go to groomers place to talk to them, really and truly thankful.  I would be in jail right now if I had - I was so angry I had to wait a few minutes to be able to call the vet office.

Breathe and relax, breathe and relax - aaaaaaahhhhhhhh - aaaaaaoooooooommmmmmm.

My cat Isis the ragdoll

 June 26th
Well I have always known my cat is a little different - she tries to help me paint by tapping the canvas with her paw, grabbing the paint brush when I am holding it and "helping" me to paint - LOL.  Wakes me up in the morning by turning on the radio - older model Bose that has the buttons on top so she presses them until she gets a rock station.

Well we have this ongoing musical war, I like classical, new age, opera etc..... my cat Isis loves rock in any shape or form.  Whenever I have my music on she howls (part Siamese) not to sing along but trying to drown it out - now I know where the phrase catterwailing (sp?) comes from.  Last night she was snoozing on the rug in the art studio in front of the desk, this is so I will trip over her and gives her an excuse to pretend I am trying to kill her she howls so loud.... anyway, I was in the living room channel surfing on my new HD TV to see what the extra channels were like.    One was "Unplugged" and the Black Crows were playing, the minute they came on Isis came flying into the living room, jumped up onto her condo, looked at me with loving eyes, chirped at me, and promptly lay down and went to sleep to her favorite kind of music.

So what was a good slave supposed to do?  I could not stand listening to it, so went to my studio where the computer is and spent some time browsing the internet.

This morning was looking out the window and chatting about the birds and everything she could see out there.  Sometimes I wish she would keep quiet for a bit - LOL.  Thankfully right now she is sleeping - whew!

Still going strong and not smoking.  I don't think about it very much anymore, so won't be doing a journal on it as much as I thought I would.
