Spudder the Cat R.I.P. January 7, 2019

Posted by Retired Geezer in Family, Heroes.

A little over 12 years ago, back in November 2006 there was a feral cat that was hanging around Camp Geezer. She had been living on her own for at least a year but I wanted to give her a warm place to sleep that year since winter was coming.

I started leaving food out for her and talking nicely whenever I saw her.

One day she just walked over and plopped down on her back and looked up at me.

We were buddies from then on.

Michael was the person who suggested I call her Spudder.*

Here’s one of the first posts about Spudder at IB. Couldn’t believe it got 50 comments.

Lipstick would always ask me about her whenever we would email so I started a goofy blog for Spudder, mostly to keep Lipstick updated.

A few months after we got her, I took her to the vet to get spayed. They called back after they had shaved her belly and told me that she was already spayed. Apparently she was a pet that someone dumped in the field by my house.

Fast forward to now… She stopped eating on Thursday so we took her to the vet on Friday. The prognosis was that she had pneumonia and had a few days to live. We took her home to let her die in peace.

She would drink water but she didn’t eat anything for 4 days. We decided it was time.

I was bawling like a baby when we went to the vet but Mrs. Geezer took charge.

I’d like to imagine Spudder curled up on Lipstick’s lap with Michael standing there making a wisecrack.

Damn. Sorry, Geezers. She was a lucky cat to have the best of friends to look after her all this time.
