Basja Wants to Play

Basja was very strange some days after Kotik's death. She came to see him when he was laying in agony and than she sat on the wall over him looking on him very frown. I never thought that the cats can do this with their eyebrows but I've seen it with my own eyes. The day of the death Basja disappeared. I found her hidden near the henhouse. id you know that the animals are afraid when they see their friends die? I've seen it different times...

Well, after two days of strange behaviour, I see Basja that wants to play with me. It's not normal, I have to say you, she is an other stray cat and she does not know to play. I took my photocamera and did some shorts. Here they are.

Kotik is Dead

After two days of agony, Kotik died this morning.
I had to go in the hospital and was not at home when it happend. When we turned back with the medicine, he was just dead.
The abscess was opened in the evening yesterday, and I had a hope, he can survive: they say, the cats have 9 lives. But he had only one... A terrible long death with excruciating pains...

This blog was born when Kotik was a year old, and I told here about his victories and falls, about his humor and his respect to his mother.

Last words I have to say about his love to me. Yes, he was stray, but he was born in this house and I was a kind of mother for him. He loved me. Two days ago he turned home after 2 or 3 days of absence. He was very scraggy, but he wanted to show me his love: he could not eat but wanted to rub against my legs.

Incorrigible rogue, he went away when I went to sleep that evening.
I did not find him in the morning, but my neighbour called me in the evening: there is a died black cat in our yard. Is it your cat?
I went there and found Kotik laying like dead. But there was breath else. I took him in our yard and sat near him, stroking him... and he began to ...rumble(? I did not find the right word)! He could understand that I am near him and was happy that he turned home, to me...

I'm looking on 3 graves now. My last "child" abandoned me.

There is not positive, neither negative, it's simply the way to exist.

Kotik is Ill

Animals are afraid of death. Did you ever think about it?

Stassi was afraid to stay with Imir when he was dieing. She tryed to awoyd him and did not want to near him at all. I can't imagine the reason of this behaviour. Maybe she was afraid of the odour of the illness.



Our cat, Kotik, did not want to eat about a week ago and it was visible that he felt bad. When he tryed to eat, he cryed terribly. He did not want I cure him and even tore my finger when I wanted to give him a tab.

He did not come to eat for 2 days (you will remember our cats are stray, they come to visit us but do not live in the house). I understood that he had broken a tooth, and thought the infection, sepsis can kill him. So, when he did not come for 2 or 3 days, I decided he is just dead.

In the evening, I called the female, Basja, and... a miracle: Kotik, skeleton, arrives for the door. I was very happy. He ate a little and remained to sleep on his own place. When Murka gave birth to them, she took them in the house and put them on the old bedspread. It is alive till today, that bedspread, and is the property of Kotik. He sleeps on it when he comes to us.

So, when Kotik was laying on his bedspread, I could finally see what he had. There was an enormous abcess under his lower jaw. All the kittens of Murka had lymph nodes' infection once. I can't say if it was the same, the lymph node, but today, when this abcess is just opened, it seems that somebody wanted to cut the head to this cat.

He is very emaciated now, but I think, the worse period passed. I hope, he will turn to the normality in some time.

Fish with Transparent Head

This photo I received today from my friend and the message was: this fish has transparent head to "cover" the movement of the eyes and to protect them from during the hunting. The name ot the fish is Macropinna microstoma, it lives in non accessible placesand it's difficult to say something about the population of the fish.



I found a video about it, too
