The Cat Saga Continues
After 11 months I finally got my act together and asked Deme to bring him back with him to Torino. After fluid therapy for his troubled kidneys, a teeth cleaning (extraction included), a laser procedure that repaired some gum overgrowths in this mouth, the cat was well enough to travel. He had all this done to him about 2 months ago and was deemed old but strong and resilient by the vet.
Medical records were copied, health certificates were signed, special prescription food was purchased, he was micro-chipped and so we thought it was all going to be okay. This morning when I went to pick Deme up from the airport, there was no cat. He never got on the flight that left Seattle and was headed to Atlanta, he missed his layover and is still in Atlanta now (along with another bag of Deme's).
Delta Airlines plans to have him on the same flight that he missed but one day later. I cannot tell you how infuriated I am. I called Delta constantly for 2 hours straight this morning until I spoke to someone who saw the cat and knew of his whereabouts. He is in the animal kennel at the Atlanta, Dennis, a great man, told me he took the cat out of his flight kennel and placed him in a cat run with a litter box and even told me he had some of the special kidney food that Bak-Gai is supposed to be eating. I was so worried that he might take a turn for the worse if he is not given access to a litter box and his special food. After explaining to Dennis all the intricate details of the cat's condition, he told me they had a vet on call and if need be he could get medical attention. I felt much better but not as good as I will feel when he is safely home with me.
