Miko The Downer...(Sorry 50)

First off, Happy B-day 50! Sorry to knock your birthday post off with a downer.


Miko got home from New Orleans last night, just in time to kill another of his animals...

That fella up there is Riley, and he has been with me since 1996...technically he was Miko the dog's cat (they were in love), and in about an hour, he will be on his way to meet up with his old buddy.

The problem this time, is that Riley sleeps on Amelia's bed every night, so explaining this to her has been fun. *Sigh* Pets suck...

So later tonight, when you are drinking...spill a little on the floor for my homie. (You could do the same thing if you are eating a Tuna Salad sandwich too.)

WAIT THE GOVENOR IS ON THE PHONE!!!

Even though MIKO and CO don't have the money for it, the vet mentioned one medical issue that "may" be causing Riley's issue...soooo, Miko went ahead and paid for the test to detect said issue. Thursday, we will know if Riley is long for this world.

(Basically, I paid $150 to not have to do this until Thursday...)

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you Miko

Three cheers for the Guv'nah!

I will also keep fingers crossed that Riley pulls through! Keep us posted.

I'm so sorry to hear this news, Miko! I always worry when we haven't heard from you in a while. I hope everyone is coping well. Two words, "new kitten".

Regardless of Riley's fate on Thursday...there will be NO MORE CATS/KITTENS/TIGERS or anything else feline in this house, once he is gone!!

I have grown to love Riley, the way you grow fond of your crazy, obnoxious uncle who comes to all the family reunions. You can't say you "like" him...but the reunions suck when he ain't there...

Other than that, I am not a cat person. I like my animals to listen to me when I tell them to do something. I already have a wife who doesn't listen to me, and surely my children will follow her lead soon...so the damn animals are my last hope. Yeah dogs!

You have to embrace the stubbornness Miko and remember, a little catnip provides so much entertainment

sorry to hear about Riley. In the words of Deniro, cats don't sell out their affection like dogs. :p

Well, hear's hoping, and either way I'm sorry that you're going through this. If it turns out Riley is soon to visit the original Miko, remember one thing when you're talking to Amelia about it: it's her fault.

I mean... it's not her fault. Not. I always screw that up.
