Waiting For Information

February 18, 2022

I’m pretty distracted today, and I’m late getting to this. Cubbie Cooper, our big orange cat, is at the vet’s today for some tests.

About a week ago, I found a small lump in his abdomen, high up on his side, where there should be no such lump. Now, he’ll be fourteen sometime this spring (we’re not sure exactly when), and things happen to cats as they age. We know that, both of us having been owned by cats for nearly fifty years.

So, we’re worried. We’ll find out more this afternoon when we pick Cubbie up at the vet’s. In the meantime, I’m not going to be able to do here what I had planned. So, here’s “Swamp Cat Rag” by the Swamp Rooters for Cubbie Cooper (who was probably not a swamp cat before we got him but never mind). It’s a 1930 recording that I found on the sixth volume, released in 2002, of the Yazoo Record series “Times Ain’t Like They Used To Be.”
