We almost had a dead cat yesterday. Josh brought home some of those zip ties for the fridge because Lexi will just go in and eat/waste whatever she wants. I put them on top of the microwave that's on top of the fridge. She somehow got them. I was in the back putting a load of laundry in and Lexi hauls out a lifeless cat (our mommy cat DioGee) and says "look mom, I made a collar for DioGee!" I grabbed DioGee and RAN to my room to for the scissors. DioGees eyes were rolling back in her head and she wasn't breathing at ALL! That thing was SOOO tight that I couldn't even get the scissors in between the tie and her neck! I don't know how I managed to do it, but I eventually cut it off! Remembering the kittens, I RAN back to their room while holding DioGee. After glancing at the kittens and seeing that THEY didn't have any on THEIR necks, I laid DioGee on the floor and started rubbing her head and belly. I put the kittens next to her to eat because if she was dead, they might as well get it now. Eventually DioGee started breathing normally again and she opened her eyes. She started PURRING! I held her for almost a half an hour to make sure she was okay. And damn it, I was SO happy she wasn't gone. Mommy is doing SO well now. But I'm bringing her to the vet on Monday to make sure nothing is damaged.
