1446. FINAL YEAR TALK 3. June 1, 2007. Cats

FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 2007

1. The cat of the night escapes the dog catcher but not his mistress?

"How did your cat survive being exterminated since I saw him with a leg bite wound 2 years ago?" I asked the slimmest young girl with a white head scarf and big-frame spectacles. "Now he has a big lump like a ping-pong ball below his left armpit. It would likely be a cat bite or scratch abscess. There is usually a big muscular tom-cat involved in territory control. Your neutered cat would not be so strong to fight back. Was he permitted to wander the concrete jungles of Singapore?"

"Yes," the girl said. "He will meow so loudly if he was not permitted to go out. So, he goes out in the evening or at 2 a.m."

"For how long?"

"Around 5 hours and he would come home."

The cat had lost some appetite. His rectal temperature was normal. The lump was hard --- an abscess which had not ripened yet.
